Why I’m Not Paying Rent – Because It Just Makes Sense Not To Pay

Wednesday, April 1st, 2020

Landlords Are Running A Business, So They Should Act Like Business People and Not So Entitled. You Are Not “Special”

We hear so many media stories of why working class tenants who are suffering in this deadly pandemic “must” pay rent.

We hear paying rent instead of saving money for food and emergencies is “the right thing to do”.

And while we are laid off from work and worried about our future and being worried about being able to eat, we should “care about the landlords who need to pay their mortgage.”

It’s really makes me gag and want to throw up. The landlords are trying to make a case based on ‘morality’ when it’s really just a business case.

The are so entitled they view the paying of ‘rent’ like some kind of virtue and if you don’t do it you should be shamed and go to Hell.

Pay Your Rent. I’m Your LORD!  (Yes I can’t get a job and didn’t finish high school but now I’m getting paid your rent monthly and need to buy weed!)

Landlord – Tenant Matters Are A Business Negotiation

Landlords are running a business, yet they expect pay from their client (their Tenant) to instantly appear like the 11th Commandment is “You Must Pay Rent and Enrich Your Landlord.”

In any business that involves buyers and sellers both sides are always negotiating and trying to get an edge.

In all business relationships buyers and sellers are often at odds.

Rent Must Be Paid No Matter What! (because i’m not shopping at no frills ever again buying kraft dinner)

Not Paying Rent Is a Smart Business Choice

Landlords want to make this a moral/ethical debate when it’s not.

Tenants are making their own logical decisions which are best for us and even the Premier and Prime Minister agree with us!

Landlord Cries, Tears and Threats Are Pathetic

What other type of business people will cry about unfairness when a Buyer wants to make changes in the payment system with the Seller?

You Own A $500,000 to $1,000,000 Property And Need My $2000 To Survive…Are You Biggest Idiot Ever?

Why are you so crazy if your client needs to delay payment.

How would a real business handle this? They would use their cash reserves to cover current costs.

But these landlords can’t afford $2000 in a deferred payment because they are speculators!

No one told they they had to become a landlord.

Your Business Plan Is So Bad You Don’t Have Any Savings?

Really? So you need my money to keep your million dollar business afloat? Come on, you are either lying or a crappy business person.

You Put 5% Down And Have A Huge Loan/Mortgage. Maybe This Wasn’t a Good Idea.

My landlord is a speculator. You put a tiny % down and owe huge debt payments.  Now you blame me for your crappy business idea? You took the risk, tool. No one said being a “landlord” would be an automatic pot of gold.

Government Supports Us

Even the landlord-friendly government sees this like I do. This is why they have stopped all evictions.

Landlords Are Running A Business and Need To Listen to Their Clients

We tenants are their clients. We are the ones paying them.  If we refused, and legally so, that is our decision.

You should have prepared a better business plan that included a few months of not getting rent…just like other businesses prepare for not getting sales.

Small Landlords Are Not Real Business People

With all their cries of unfairness and anger it’s clear they are not educated enough or smart enough to run a hot dog stand.

They also can’t get real jobs based on some of the Youtube videos I’ve watched. I mean, if you make a Youtube video talking about landlord rights don’t be stoned…or is that just autism?

And What About Small Landlord Mortgage Fraud?

There rampant mortgage fraud (hey your income can be faked says the landlords mortgage broker pal, to get that next property or 4) is a tool for them to try to cheat the system. 

And many landlords don’t officially marry to get extra child support. What a scam!

Sorry, I’m Not Falling For Your Cries of Help

Federal and provincial governments have made it clear Tenants should not make paying rent a priority and there are no evictions.

Real business people will be prepared for these types of policy changes, especially during a pandemic.

Real business people would appreciate their good tenants and not want to evict for non-payment.

Real business will see a blip of non-payment from clients facing serious challenges as a way to improve relations by helping these clients.

I’m Not Paying Rent And You Shouldn’t Pay Rent To These “Special” People

The rental industry is pretty crazy these days. According to the government we can’t even evict tenants who refuse to pay to pay rent.

And lawyers and paralegals are demanding huge fees to “help” you with no guarantees of refunds if they lose at the LTB.

Go ahead and ask them: if you don’t give me the result for the thousands of dollars I pay, will you pay me back?

And the Landlord and Tenant Board (LTB) has been stopped. The LTB is the only way landlords can legally evict non paying or destructive tenants.

Now is the time for all small business landlords to join our community and we become a strong voice for change!

Ontario Landlords Campaign Against Discrimination

Let’s Make Sure Every Landlord In Ontario Follows The Human Rights Code And Doesn’t Discriminate

Many Ontario landlords were surprised to read a story in the Toronto Star about a tenant applicant who was being discriminated against.

This was an applicant most experienced and successful landlords would consider to potentially be an ideal tenant…someone we all want to rent from us.

She had a strong financial history (with good credit and a good job). She was established with good references.

However, she found herself being regularly refused by landlords because, she believes, strictly due to her race.

It was not only surprising but also shocking because our members are aware of the Human Rights Code and follow it.

Ontario Landlords Association Defends Small Landlords

A member of the Ontario Landlords Association was in the Toronto Star story defending all the good landlords out there. The member explained:  

“We educate our members on the laws and rules in Ontario.  We also educate landlords on what ‘really matters’ when screening (such as a credit and reference check, conversations with the tenants, etc.)”

“We teach you should never turn away a qualified tenant applicant because of their race, place of birth or beliefs.”

In our Ontario landlord forum one landlord commented on the Star story:

“You would have to be nuts to not rent to qualified applicants no matter where they are from or what they look like. These must be very inexperienced landlords and they won’t last.”

Another member said – “This makes us all look bad! I’m angry at these landlords! Learn the law!”

Ontario Landlords Association Members Follow The Rules

Our province-wide landlord community wants to fix the system to help good landlords, good tenants and increase the rental supply in Ontario.

This is the reason our province-wide community organization started over a decade ago…to improve the rental industry for both good landlords and good tenants.
