Don’t forget!

Daylight Saving Time starts again this weekend, as most of Canada springs forward for 2019. The time change happens Sunday at 2 a.m., when clocks move forward by one hour. So when you get up Sunday morning, make sure your clocks are changed.

Need Landlord information?

Having issues with your tenant? Don’t quite remember what your rights and responsibilities are versus your tenants? Late with rent payment what are the next steps? What are grounds for evicting tenants? Need to head to the Landlord and Tenant board but not sure what the process is and what to expect? We have the right resources here that will be able to answer all these questions!

Our very own Landlordconnect.ca site has a landlord tool kit that provides information on becoming a landlord, rooming house landlords, renovations, insurance and tax considerations and rights and responsibilites of Landlords. 

 

 Landlord’s Self-Help Centre provides support exclusively to Ontario’s small landlord community. This resource helps educate landlords on their rights and responsibilities when it comes to legal related matters. What is the smoking policy? Having a second unit in your home for rental? Need to access standard lease form? Need a referal to a legal aid for advice before going to the lawyers? You can find all that information here!

 

Want to understand the rights and responsibilities of your tenants? Want to make sure your tenants are educated when it comes to issues realted to privacy and harassment, eviction process, moving out, applications to Landlord and Tenant board?

Steps to Justice is a great tool for tenants and even landlords to navigate and use! Should you as a Landlord want to figure out what happens at the other end (perhaps you notified your tenants that you will be moving into their unit and require them to move or if they are late on rent), you can find related imformation on this site! They have a step by step tool that will ensure that only the information relevant to your issue is shared.

 

Programs, events and services to keep in mind!
