After A Painfully Long Wait The Landlord & Tenant Board Is Open
Many small landlords have felt incredibly frustrated and rightfully angry as the Landlord and Tenant Board was closed for most cases such as non-payment of rent.
Most of us have full time or part time jobs that help us survive. Like others, we too suffered job losses, no school for our children, lock-downs and were worried about our loved ones being safe.
We also had our rental properties to deal with.
Ontario Landlord and Tenant Board Is Open
Here are the rules for the opening.
As of August 1st, 2020 the Landlord and Tenant Board Will:
(1) Begin to issue eviction orders that are already pending
(2) The LTB will begin to issue consent eviction orders that are based on tenants and landlords deciding to settle issues with an agreement.
(3) LTB will remain hearing ‘urgent’ matters that are related to health and safety issues that have already been scheduled.
(4) Begin to schedule hearings for non-urgent evictions.
(5) Start non-urgent hearings starting in the middle of August and into autumn.
As the LTB gradually re-opens it says it will make their services stronger:
(1) They will begin holding hearings by phone, video software and in writing
(2) The LTB is encouraging tenants and landlords to try to reach a settlement before applying for a hearing
(3) Using what are called “Case Management Hearings” for applications that don’t include rent owed
(4) Hiring and training more adjudicators
We will be watching what happens and encourage our members to share your feedback with us that we will share with the LTB and the Ministry.

With So Many Problems From A Small Group of Bad Tenants Out There More Landlords Are Using Criminal Checks to Protect Their Rental Properties…And Now You Can Too For a Discounted Price!
Ontario landlords are excited about how many great tenants are out there. These are tenants who pay their rent on time and respect both the rental property and their landlord in a mature and professional manner.
Many Ontario landlords have faced problems with their tenants during the Covid-19 pandemic. It’s now more important than ever to protect yourself and your property!
Take Your Tenant Screening System To A Higher Level (Not Just Credit Checks, Social Media and References)
It’s time to make sure you run criminal background checks on your potential tenants. And you can now do so with our Protection membership.
The Ontario Landlords Association has brought forth a revolution in tenant screening over the past decade.
Experienced and successful landlords in our community were the ones who educated others on the importance of screening your tenants very carefully. Before we came along there was very little talk about landlord issues and few Ontario landlords even knew they could run credit checks on tenants (and why they should run them).
With so many good people looking for a place to ‘call home’ and rent from you, it is essential that small landlords avoid the professional tenants out there.
These professional tenants know how to manipulate the system and can lead small landlords to not only sleepless nights, but to financial ruin.
Professional Tenants Hurt Good Tenants, Not Only Their Landlord
These types of people who make leave huge damages and owed rent behind not only hurt the landlord, it hurts good tenants who are looking for a nice rental property. Landlords who face huge financial losses often leave the industry. Or they will raise rents to help pay for the repair costs.
Sadly, we continue to see some landlords not being careful and being ripped off by these professional tenants.

After dealing with unpaid rent, destroyed rental apartments and a long process to even try to get paid money that is owed some Windsor landlords are saying they will make their tenant screening system even tighter.
According to a CBC report a property manager has had enough of professional tenants causing huge financial hardship on small landlords.
Huge Challenges For Ontario Landlords
Already small landlords aren’t making huge profits and many are just breaking even (and some even cash-flow negative).
So if you aren’t super careful and rent to a tenant who doesn’t pay rent, causes damages, or causes problems with the landlord or other tenants in the property it can lead to huge headaches.
Tenant Leaves Behind Huge, Expensive Damages
The Windsor property manager said one of the biggest problems he faces it from renters who leave behind huge messes to clean up.
