THE HIDDEN NIGHTMARE – What Happens At The Ontario Landlord/Tenant Board Is A Slaughter! (And the Government Is Covering It Up!)

Thursday, December 10th, 2020

THE LANDLORD AND TENANT BOARD IS NOW STOPPING THE PUBLIC FROM VIEWING HEARINGS EVEN THOUGH THE LAW SAYS THE PUBLIC HAS THE RIGHT TO VIEW: THIS IS ILLEGAL AND  HIDING THE MASS ILLEGAL EVICTIONS OF TENANTS!

The Ontario Landlord/Tenant Board Doesn’t Want You To See What Is Happening! They Want Tenants Destroyed Without Anyone Knowing The Truth!

Learn the truth about what goes on behind closed doors

You Will Get Evicted No Matter What! Shocking Abuses, Failure of Proper Procedures/Laws, Rudeness, Threats, Sickening Behavior. 

Tenants Treated Like Garbage, No Rights & Evicted Automatically!

Many Tenants believe in the Canadian legal system. They feel that because we are told Canada is a first world nation the laws are followed everyone is protected.

You believe you don’t have to worry if you didn’t do a bad thing.

This leads Tenants to trust the Landlord and Tenant Board

Tenants are law abiding and always want to do the right thing.

We don’t seek confrontation and just want to work hard for win-win situations. We try our best at all times to protect our families, our children and staying safe during the cold winter in our home!

We just try to get by during this dangerous pandemic, put food on the table and have a home to survive the hard cold Canadian winter.

Most have seen television shows where brave investigators look into situations where they believe something “isn’t right.”

What Are Some Of the Abuses Brave Honest Warriors Have Investigated?

1. Catholic Priests Abusing Children

There have many investigations of abuse by those with power over innocent children.

2. Companies That Discriminate Against Hiring Women Or Minorities

Sadly, many companies have discriminated against women and those who are not white.

3. Some racist places in the USA where African-Americans are discriminated against.

There have many many cases where African Americans have been abused in the United States.

4. Online Sites Used By Child Predicators

The FBI and there team has cracked down hard on evil website that are used by child predators.

5. The Ontario Landlord And Tenant Board

Tenants in Ontario are treated unfairly and as “sheep” to the slaughter by the Ontario Landlord and Tenant Board .

They are breaking the law and do not the Ontario Human Rights Code For Landlords and Tenants!

Tenants Cannot Trust The Ontario Landlord And Tenant Board

The image is the fake reality the Ford LTB presents to Tenants. It is purposely misleading on and opposite of the truth.

The Fake Propaganda To Instill “Confidence” In The Anti-Tenant Illegitimate System

LTB wants you to think it professional fair when it is not……this is a sick joke and a trick.

This is fake propaganda!

LTB Hearings Were Recently Available To the Public. Now They Are Closed:

Journalists Reveal the Truth! And The Truth Is Worst Than You Can Ever Imagine! This is  Why The LTB Wants To Keep The Public From Seeing The Truth.

For the time being Hearings are open to the public...Ooops Not Now!

Justice minded civilians have been monitoring LTB hearings just as the United Nations does during elections in 3rd world countries.

You Are Not Viewed As A Human At the LTB,  You Have No Human Rights! They Treat Us Like Lambs Going To the Slaughterhouse!

These justice minded civilians have revealed the Landlord and Tenant Board has become an illegitimate. The civilians are now illegally blocked from reporting the truth!

The Ontario Legislator even voted to close down the LTB because it’s unjust and unfair…but Doug Ford disagreed! Check it out here.

After this true information the LTB has blocked the public,

unlawful, unprofessional, sneaky,

horrid

 

cesspool!

This is evil

The LTB wants to you to not see their crimes!

 

The Landlord And Tenant Board Wants To Hide The Truth

This is like the movie the Matrix or the beginning of the Soviet Union!

We are living in an evil system and only Heroic Tenant Super Heroes Are revealing the truth!

The Ontario Landlord Tenant Board Doesn’t View us as “Humans” with “Rights”…We Are Just Meat To The Slaughter.

We are just seen as human “meat” by the Ford government and their foreign funded corporate landlords. We are sheep with no rights at all!

The Landlord And Tenant Board Doesn’t View You As Human

You should have legal rights, but you don’t under the Ford/Clark international landlord payment plan.

 

You have no rights and the verdicts have been written.

 

SHUT DOWN THE LTB NOW!

It is illegitimate. This has nothing to do with small “mom and pop” landlords who need rent to survive.

The Ford PC government is under the control of internationally funded corporate landlords who want to crush your legal and human rights for their profits!

Part 1: Top Secrets To Avoid Being Evicted At The Ontario Landlord And Tenant Board

Monday, November 16th, 2020

Take Action And Avoid Being Evicted In A Global Pandemic PART 1

Landlords are boasting and cocky like never before.  They are now getting Landlord and Tenant Board (LTB) Hearing dates and evicting Tenants who rightfully didn’t pay rent during the beginning of the Covid-19 health catastrophe! Tenants are losing our homes every day!

They even changed the rules to make faster MASS EVICTIONS

Despite Premier Ford’s statement that tenants who didn’t pay rent during the pandemic would be protected, the LTB is evicting tenants by the thousands now.

Ford is the ultimate traitor and a puppet of the landlords. His lack of a strong moral code and his deception are putting our children at risk.

“Daddy I’m so cold and feel sick being homeless.”

GET READY FOR MASS EVICTIONS IN WINTER!

The landlords and their lobbyists the Ontario Landlords Association ,the Ontario Real Estate Association and the corporate Chinese Communist Party (CCP) controlled landlord groups control the Ford government. It’s called “pay to play.”

This has led to even more anti-tenant rules in the Residential Tenancies Act

These new rules are harsh and destroy almost all rights hard working tenants have fought for over the past 40 years!

Ford made these changes which don’t allow tenants to re-schedule Hearings if we are sick or busy finding a job and will lead to hundreds of thousands of people homeless and on the street!

Why Are They Doing This? When You Move Landlords Can Raise The Rent As Much As They Want! 

This is their goal because when tenants move out, landlords can raise the rent by hundreds and even thousands of dollars for new tenants. There is no rent control for new tenants!

“Why was my family evicted in the cold of winter during a lock down? I’m so sad!”

“I thought Canada as a good place? My family is suffering, I hate to see Mummy crying all the time and I’m hungry!!!”

They Want You And Your Family Homeless!

They don’t just want to evict you, they want you homeless and want you to suffer. They hope you have toddlers who will living in a super cold Canadian winter where they might not survive. Landlords view you as cannon fodder, as less than human!

Because how dare you not pay rent…when the Premier said you didn’t have to. Canada is a corrupt nation.

This is an attack on Tenants like we have never seen before!

Who is Doug Ford, Really?

“March 2020: Tenants don’t have to pay rent during the Pandemic”

“Nov 2020: I Fooled You ALL With My Warm Uncle Act! LOL! Mass Evictions on the way and renters should get out! Landlords need you evicted to raise rents HAHAHA”

It’s a lie that will lead to mass evictions and massive homelessness. The reality is Canadian politicians lie all the time and cannot be trusted.

 

You Need To Win At The Landlord And Tenant Board To Survive!

Evictions are  happening and thousands of tenants per day are being evicted and kicked to the streets to die!

“I need money for more Botox treatments and my Ferrari needs snow tires! Tenants get out so I can raise the rent by $500/month!!”

Small Landlords Show Their True Evil Face, They Are Not Nice

The good “mom and pop” landlord trying to just pay their bills is a myth!

Most landlords are incredibly greedy and heartless. All they want is to to get your hard earned money even during a global pandemic where thousands of people are dying.

They could easily give you a break and use their profits to cover their mortgages, or (and this will upset them) get a real job and not just rely on sucking the life blood of tenants like parasites.

They simply don’t care about you and your family and only view you as cattle. Or less than cattle. You are the steak, pork, chicken and lamb they feast on.

And now with online hearings Tenants are being evicted like cows in slaughterhouse!

 

Use “Payment Plans” Against Your Landlord And Win!

Tenants have very few options…but we still have some!

If you want to avoid being evicted and win at the Landlord and Tenant Board here is one strategy you should consider.

Let’s first look the the rules of the Residential Tenancies Act which were changed in July, 2020.

Did you know the rules changed? Most tenants (and tenant groups) don’t realize it.

But this is the key to avoiding evictions and defeating your landlord!

Here’s the new rules:

Rent Arrears that Arose During COVID-19

On July 21, 2020, the following provision was added to the RTA:

“83(6) Without restricting the generality of subsections (1) and (2), if a hearing is held in respect of an application under section 69 for an order evicting a tenant based on arrears of rent arising in whole or in part during the period beginning on March 17, 2020 and ending on the prescribed date, in determining whether to exercise its powers under subsection (1) the Board shall consider whether the landlord has attempted to negotiate an agreement with the tenant including terms of payment for the tenant’s arrears.

What this means is that when deciding whether to grant discretionary relief from eviction for an application about rent arrears on or after March 17, 2020, the Board must consider whether the landlord tried to reach a payment agreement with the tenant before the hearing.

Therefore, at the hearing the parties or their representatives must be prepared to discuss whether the landlord and the tenant tried to reach an agreement. If the parties tried to reach an agreement but were not successful, the details of the negotiations should not be discussed during the hearing.

Subsection 83(6) applies to rent arrears that arose, at least in part, starting on March 17, 2020, and ending on a date to be proclaimed by the Lieutenant Governor. As of September 2020, the ending date had not been proclaimed”

So How Does This Help Tenants?

Landlords had to have offered you the option of a “Payment Plan” in order to get their eviction and kick you and your family to the cold streets!

Let’s look at this again:

1. Your Landlord Didn’t Offer You A Payment Plan?

This is excellent for you.

All you have to do is explain to the LTB adjudicator that during the Covid-19 pandemic shut down you were worried about surviving and your landlord “didn’t even try to cooperate with you.”

This will lead to no eviction as long as you (a) Show up for your Hearing (b) Explain how scary times were during the lock-down.

2. Your Landlord Offered You A Payment Plan?

This makes things more complicated. Because if your landlord offered you a payment plan they probably did it because their $500/hr lawyer told them to do this to get you kicked out on the street!

At your Landlord and Tenant Board Hearing your landlord or their representative will try to use this to get a evicted, and fast!

Even if the offer was ridiculous, or you were too busy trying to survive to contemplate it, the Ford Pro-Landlord LTB will get you evicted!

Your Landlord Only Made The Payment Plan Offer To Use Against You To Evict you!

They don’t care about getting a little bit of rent, they want you evicted so they can raise the rent buy hundreds or thousands of dollars to the next tenants! The payment plan provided to you was a just a “legal tactic” to get you evicted!

Fight landlord dirty tricks by using their tricks against them!

Fight Fire With Fire – DENY, DENY, DENY!

Landlords are lying so you can too! Fight fire with fire. Too many tenants are honest and victims to lying, evil landlords.

At you Landlord and Tenant Board Hearing if your landlords says they offered you a “payment plan” deny it.

Yes, JUST DENY IT! (Yes, even if it’s not true!)

1. If they say they called you discussing a payment plan…DENY IT!

2. If they say they emailed you offering a payment plan…DENY IT!

3. If they say they met with you offering a payment plan…DENY IT!

What If There Is Evidence That Your Landlord Presented A Payment Plan?

First of all deny it. Make your landlord “prove” it.

If there is an email exchange tell the LTB adjudicator that is not your email address and make your landlord prove it!

If your landlord recorded you say that is “not me” and make your landlord prove it!

Do You Have A Spouse Or Roommate Or Someone Living With You?

This is great.

Bring them in as witnesses and also DENY, DENY, DENY and payment plan offers.

If There Is Any Doubt Of A Payment Plan Your LL Claims Is True And You Get An Eviction Order You Can Appeal To The Superior Court And Win

Unlike all the low paid, desperate for work newly hired failed lawyers, failed paralegal LTB adjudicators (their salary and benefits are Walmart tire!), Superior Court Judges are trained and fair and fight for real JUSTICE!

No Landlord Offer Of A Payment Plan = No LTB Eviction = Protect Your Family From Landlord Lies!

Protect You and Your Family By Using Legal Methods To Beat Your Landlord At the Landlord At Tenant Board

Tenants are just trying to find a home. We pay our rent on time and keep the properties like our own.

During a huge historic pandemic where are our jobs were shut down many tenants couldn’t pay rent.

We were promised by Ford that we didn’t have to pay rent so we could pay for food and medicine.

Months later the rules have changed and landlords are seeking MASS EVICTIONS.

Make Sure You Fight Back And Win At Your LTB Hearing.

This Is Part 1, Come Back And More Real Life Advice To Avoid Evictions!!

Attention Tenants: Canada Recovery Benefit (CRB) Is NOT FOR PAYING RENT (legally you don’t have to use it to pay rent!)

Thursday, October 22nd, 2020

Don’t Be Tricked! Don’t Be Bullied! The CRB Is For Helping You Survive! LTB Adjudicators Will Understand & Agree Not Using It To Pay Rent (and won’t evict you!)

The CRB programme was created to help workers who continue to need support for our families. This means these emergency funds given are to make sure you have enough to eat, the cloth your family in harsh winter conditions, to buy medicine, and for other daily necessities.

It is NOT for paying rent.

It was not designed to go to tenants and then transferred to landlords (who have their own programs to get rent) during these frightening times! If you do not pay rent you can explain to this to a judge or LTB adjudicator and you will not be evicted!

Canada Recovery Benefit (CRB)

While many Canadians have seen their jobs come back and have returned to work since the start of the pandemic, the Government of Canada recognizes that there remain other workers in sectors that have been particularly hit hard who continue to need support.

That is why, today, the Deputy Prime Minister and Finance Minister, Chrystia Freeland, and the Minister of Employment, Workforce Development and Disability Inclusion, Carla Qualtrough, announced the introduction of Bill C-2, to create three new temporary Recovery Benefits to support Canadians who are unable to work for reasons related to COVID-19. These new Benefits are being proposed as part of the Government of Canada’s plan to support Canadians as we work to build back a stronger, more resilient economy. Since the introduction of the Canada Emergency Response Benefit (CERB) in the early days of the pandemic, at a time when we asked Canadians to stay home, close to 9 million Canadians have received the Benefit to help to pay their bills and support their families.

The Canada Recovery Benefit (CRB) gives income support to employed and self-employed individuals who are directly affected by COVID-19 and are not entitled to Employment Insurance (EI) benefits. The CRB is administered by the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA).

If you are eligible for the CRB, you can receive $1,000 ($900 after taxes withheld) for a 2-week period.

If your situation continues past 2 weeks, you will need to apply again. You may apply up to a total of 13 eligibility periods (26 weeks) between September 27, 2020 and September 25, 2021.

My Landlord Is A Bully! If She Tries To Evict Me What Can I Do?

“Pay now or I will evict you! I have payments for my BMWs to make!”

Many (not all) landlords are bullies who don’t even know the law.

Don’t worry at all.

1. The Process Will Take Over a Year To Get  Hearing HAHAHAHA

First of all, it your landlord will have to serve you an N4 (pay rent) which is just a request for the money. Then if you ignore if they have to get a “hearing” date at the LTB which will take at least a year.

2. At The Hearing You Can Easily Explain Why You Didn’t Pay Rent

In Ontario housing is a “human right” and not just a business transaction. This is why the Ontario Landlord and Tenant Board is part of the Social Justice tribunal system. Most landlords don’t even know this!

At the Hearing you will get free legal aid to help you. Yes, all tenants no matter what your income.

Then you just explain why you needed CRB and what your struggles are. Make sure to be very dramatic and perhaps even cry and wear old clothes at your Hearing to make sure the message gets across to the Adjudicator.

If you do this YOU WILL NOT BE EVICTED!

At most you will be given a looooonnnnnggggg term payment plan, but you won’t be evicted! You might have to pay an extra $10/month once the pandemic is over LOL!

Yes, the Ford government is tenant-friendly! They don’t want the media to report on “mass evictions” so they put the burn on landlords which is rad!

Make sure you text or email your landlord about your problems and ask them to understand your situation. An email like this:

“Dear ____, During these difficult times I’m unable to pay rent due to. __ and ___ and ___. Please understand my situation as I want to pay but simply cannot due to this horrible pandemic. I am open to communication with and ask you to respect the extremely difficult times I face. I will pay you in full as soon as I can, but now I must protect my life and the lives of my family!”

***MAKE SURE YOU DOCUMENT EVERYTHING, EXPECIALLY YOUR EMAILS/TEXTS TO YOUR LANDLORD (WITH DATES!) AS EVIDENCE

Landlords want your money for their new cars and vacations!

3. What If My Landlord Offered Me A Payment Plan?

You can choose to agree, but it’s best to disagree. Just make sure you have a record of why you disagreed.

(For example “I need money for my baby!” or “I want to make a payment plan but am worried about being able to pay food and can’t find work, please understand my situation!”)

4. What If My Landlord Harasses Me Or Locks Me Out?

Call the police.

This is a landlord tenant matter and the landlord MUST LET YOU IN!

Tenants Are More Powerful Than We Think!

In Ontario there are strong laws to protect tenants. But most tenants are not aware of our legal rights and don’t fight our landlords!

Many tenants don’t even go to their Landlord and Tenant Board Hearing, which means the landlord wins “automatically” when if you just show up, get free legal aid, you will !

If You Show Up And Fight Back You Will Win!

SO SHOW UP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Tenants all over, in this global pandemic make sure you enforce your LEGAL RIGHTS.

Most landlord victories at the LTB are because tenants didn’t show up!

Don’t feel afraid, feel ENERGIZED! Feel Proud! You Have Rights And Your Future Is Looking Good! You Will Win If:

– You Fight Back.

-You Get Free Legal Help.

-You Show Up For Your Hearing.(!)

-You Don’t Be Bullied

-You Don’t Be Demotivated.

And you will Win…Yes you will! Love yourself and fight hard with fellow tenants across Ontario!

IT’S YOUR RIGHT TO NOT PAY RENT DURING A PANDEMIC!

REMEMBER TO GET FREE LEGAL HELP AND THEY WILL FIGHT BACK FOR YOU!!!

TENANTS FREE LEGAL HELP!

USE IT TO DEFEAT YOUR LANDLORD AND PROTECT YOUR TENANT RIGHTS!

No Covid Evictions: How To Not Pay Rent And Win At Your Landlord and Tenant Board (LTB) Hearing In The Future (up to 2 years of free rent)

Saturday, September 12th, 2020

Disclaimer: “This isn’t an attack on landlords. This is an attack on the system that got us here.”

“The Landlord Tenant Board is shut by Covid. When it opens again, the backlog will be biblical. The tenants will still be there, squatting, in a year. In fact, they can just stop paying rent.”

Former Canadian Minister of Finance (May 2020)

“What Happens Now The Landlord and Tenant Is Open? Will I Be Instantly Kicked Out Of My Home” (NO! DON’T WORRY!)

This is easy, you couldn’t safely pay during a world wide crisis and Premier Doug Ford said don’t pay….No offer of a payment plan…NO EVICTION!!

WHY TENANTS NOTHING TO FEAR! — How To Avoid Getting Evicted Now The Landlord Tenant Board Has Reopened?

My last post was a huge hit and so controversial! Telling the truth makes the bad landlords to cry. After all they just expect rent as a god given right.

The bad landlords attacks on me are very interesting. They are trying to bully me from educating tenants (and good landlords who can learn a lot too.)

This shows why it’s time to license landlords and demand proof of a bachelor degree and a criminal check as well as showing the deed and mortgage documentation. 

This is the real path for success for Tenants, not rent strikes.

I am just informing tenants of strategies that can be used in these super challenging times.

These landlords don’t want this published, they are afraid of the real laws. I guess they are real estate agents trying to shill “make money with rental properties.”

Just like a good prosecutor or defense attorney will not break the law, but figure out a way to use it, my post was not intended to do anything but protect tenants and keep people from becoming homeless through no fault of their own.

Rent Strikes Are Not A Good Option For ‘Small” Tenants

Many tenants in larger buildings are conducting “rent strikes.” That’s one choice for tenants, but in larger buildings tenants have strength in numbers.

It’s a lot easier when you have hundreds of other tenants supporting you.

It an be very different when you are alone, with loved ones, and dealing with a vicious landlord all by yourself.

You worry about your landlord and her thugs storming in while your baby is sleeping.

Or breaking down your door and assaulting you or one of your family members.

Or taking off our doors and windows leaving your babies to the harsh winds that are now here.

And some tenants worry even worry their landlords might go even further like a landlord who threatened to KILL his tenant and SELL his baby on the black market if rent wasn’t paid!

…It’s so scary I don’t even want to write about it, but some landlords are making threats (which need to be reported to law enforcement, call 911).

Landlords Are Excited And Think Mass Evictions Are Coming Soon – But This Won’t Happen If You Position Yourself Appropriately

“Fer sure we gonna get them so hard they can’t sit in the crapper fer months an we can grow the rental shocks!”

From social media it’s clear many landlords want money and even more want some type of revenge against hard working tenants just trying to survive during this deadly pandemic. This is shocking and frightening.

I’m going to make that family of seniors homeless and on the street!

Let’s Do A Deep Dive To Help Tenants (Tenants Must Learn)

First, remember it was conservative Premier Doug Ford who said tenants don’t have to pay the rent and will not be evicted. This was shocking to everyone including tenants. If landlords are angry about this they should be contacting Ford (who ignores most of them).

Ford said what he said and tenants followed what the leader of our province said to do.

What This Means For Tenants

It means make sure you print out the links I sent and show it at your LTB Hearing.

You have to be forceful and take control at the Landlord and Tenant Board because it’s even more amateurish than before. All the high quality people left!

Since Ford won all the smart and professional adjudicators resigned in disgust of how things were being handled.

At least McGuinty rightfully got rid of under-educated adjudicators who were just political appointments and didn’t even have law degrees or paralegal training.

So now you have mediocre leadership and new adjudicators are mostly part time and paid peanuts just desperate to avoid working at Walmart so they don’t really care.

Oh I want to evict them so hard, I’m hard….

1. Tenants Need To Control The Narrative At The LTB

Landlords and their high priced legal reps will try to frame this as “you didn’t pay rent, you are evil and get out!”

This is very easy to counter and will back-fire on the landlords acting so savagely…but you need to be aggressive and control the narrative.

You Are the Victim, Not The Landlord: “I was  just listening to Premier Ford and Trying To Survive!”

By not paying rent (or paying a little bit) you were following the advice of the Premier and the Housing Minister.

You did nothing wrong…You listened to the Premier and Housing Minister… You paid what you could…or didn’t pay because you couldn’t.

Madam Chair: “It wasn’t my intention not to pay rent for the year, it was due to needing to survive!”

Do this and you are already winning at your LTB Hearing.

Here are links to the Premier and Housing Minister saying you won’t be evicted for paying rent.

https://www.cp24.com/news/tenants-who-can-t-afford-rent-due-to-covid-19-won-t-be-evicted-ford-says-1.4861760

https://globalnews.ca/news/6764049/renters-not-evicted-ontario-coronavirus/

PRINT BOTH OUT AND MAKE THEM A KEY PART OF YOUR CASE.

It’s not your landlord vs. you, it’s your landlord vs. you, Premier Ford, and the Minister of Housing! Guess who will win?

2. The Landlord and Tenant Board is a “Social Justice Tribunal” not normal court.

This means the LTB takes the concerns of tenants seriously. It’s not just “black or white”. It’s a “social justice tribunal” that cares about your human rights.

What This Means For Tenants

It means the LTB will have to seriously consider the situation you faced when you didn’t pay rent. Landlords often think “you didn’t pay, you get the hell out!”

That’s not the way the LTB (a social justice tribunal) works. Tenants can explain our situations and why we had to do what we had to do.

Housing is a human right and if you need money to survive and can’t cover rent the LTB will be understanding and it’s okay.

Fortunately, thanks to McGuinty and Wynne Ontario isn’t the “Alabama” or “Mississippi” no justice states so many landlords crave it to be. Make sure to have your “story” of “hardship” and you won’t be evicted.

I can’t evict immediately? I have to follow the legal process? WTF?!

3. The LTB Will Be Clogged And Landlords Won’t Get A Hearing For Months

Due to mismanagement even before the pandemic it was taking landlords 6-8 months to get a hearing date. Now it’s going to be even more swamped.

Remember all the cases set for March – July were postponed and these cases filed before the March shut-down will be at the front of the line.

Even investment guru Garth Turner (former Canada Minister of Finance) has said:

The Landlord Tenant Board is shut by Covid. When it opens again, the backlog will be biblical. The tenants will still be there, squatting, in a year. In fact, they can just stop paying rent.

What This Means For Tenants

It means even though you may receive an N4 it is just a piece of paper and nothing more! The N4 Means Nothing!

Your landlord will have to file to get a Hearing at the LTB and it won’t happen for months, perhaps years!

Smart landlords will try to work with you and work out a win-win situation because the reality is landlords are powerless and have to wait for the LTB to open and for their Hearing to be scheduled.

If you have a great small landlord let them know you can avoid the LTB and work something out together. But landlords will need to obey your payment plan or reduced rent. If not, let them take you to the LTB where they will lose.

LET’S DO IT! – Work Now To Create Your Case To Win At the Landlord and Tenant Board

Let’s focus on what you need to do.

—Control The Narrative From The Start

Firstly, control the narrative that Premier Ford and the Housing Minister told you that you don’t have to pay rent and won’t be evicted and you needed to focus on food and survival.

—Document your situation

Document, document, document! Show your costs, keep copies (and take pic of) all your receipts for food. Show your total bills.

When the adjudicator asks you why you didn’t pay rent (or full rent):

-Have your employment situation laid out. Did you lose hours, laid off, etc.

-Did you have to rely on CERB which could have ended at any time so you needed to save for food?

-Show your grocery bills (copies will be helpful).

-Show receipts for other costs? Do you have kids who need diapers, pablum, some toys? Show one receipt is enough because of course these costs are regular and add up.

-Did you have sick relative you needed to help? Show gas receipts, other costs.

-Do you have kids? Bring them to the LTB Hearing! Explain how you had to pay for their food and as a good parent you bought some toys, etc.

—Show You Tried to Pay (And If You Paid Some Rent It Will Be Even Easier To Win)

If you can show you tried to pay even $100 it will work in your favour. Make sure you have witnesses and people who will sign affidavits for you.

KEY POINT – No adjudicator will ever evict you if you tried to pay (and can prove it) or couldn’t pay (and can explain why)  They won’t evict you!

They will give you a long term payment plan. If they evict you they will be fired under these circumstances. You file for a review and go to the media!

If they evicted you there are ways to make sure they lose their job (their 2 year contract won’t be renewed).

In this crappy economy these people want to keep their cushy jobs. You only need to give them the ammo to help them help you.

KEY POINT – Landlords who didn’t offer you a fair payment plan will go down hard and lose at the Hearing. Bill 184 made this a new rule:

Because the new laws will PUNISH landlords who didn’t try to create a payment plan with you!!!

So landlords are already getting ready to just “lie” they offered you one. Make sure you are ready to challenge them on their lies.

Let’s Review Things.

-Your Eviction Hearing Will Take Months or Years To Get. Think July 2021 For Your Hearing

-When You Go To Your Hearing You Will Not Evicted If You Plan

1. At your LTB Hearing many tenants will have their owed rent ‘forgiven’.

2. At the very worst you will be put on a payment plan where you start paying rent + $50 until 2021 or beyond..

You pay me now or i will. keep emailing Ford!!!

Bad Landlords Trying To Make A Buck Are Pathetic!

We Need To License Small Landlords

Not all landlords are bad. It is usually the uneducated mortgage frauds who are. So let’s license landlords and demand a valid Bachelor Degree and an annual test and maintenance inspection to be able to own an rental.

This will eliminate many of the worst rural rump landlords and allow good landlords to thrive.

Tenants Should Co-Operate With Their Landlord If Possible

Of course, if you have a nice granny landlord try your best to help them out. But if you have a corporate landlord or a snotty rich landlord who is living in Bahamas and cheating his wife there is no need to have any mercy.

Because bad landlords don’t care if you live or die.

Tenants Prepare Now To Win When The LTB Opens

If you prepare you will win. Easily. It’s a cakewalk!

Landlords are hoping you are not informed of your rights, not informed of the realities of the situation, and not informed that you can protect yourself and your loved ones and WIN!

No wonder by past post got so much attention.  And all I did was explain how the system works.

But remember if you have a small grandma landlord who you like, educate them and work something out and co-operate together.

But Never Forget – YOU WON’T BE EVICTED!

If you plan and play it right:

1. The LTB will deny the eviction and effectively eliminate your arrears – but would still likely make sure you started paying the rent again. 

If your landlord did not offer you a payment plan they will be punished!

2. In most cases the LTB will make an Order to re-pay with an enforceable payment plan under section 78 of the Act.  In laypeople’s terms it means you need to make a small payment and can’t miss it. But you will not be evicted.

3. You can always just leave. Your landlord will then have to find you, serve you and sue you in small claims court. It’s a very difficult process and small claims court justices are on the Tenants side.

Big debts? Be like Trump who “went bankrupt” 5x and never paid money owed LOL!

4. If you ever get a judgement against you just declare bankruptcy and the debt will never be collected from you.

Declaring bankruptcy is an important potential strategy so you don’t have to pay what you legally owe someone. Even President Trump in the USA declared bankruptcy 5 times! It’s a weapon tenants can use!
