Tenants Speak Out & Share Their Concerns & Opinions on the Rental Industry

As part of our “Let’s Improve the Ontario Rental Industry” we have invited tenants to share their opinions on how we can make these improvements.

Most of us used to rent to and we have tried to become the landlords we always wanted to rent from but could never find.

These opinions are from individual contributors and are not the opinions of the Ontario Landlords Association.

We believe by fostering communication between landlords and tenants we can improve the Ontario rental industry in a win-win business relationship.

To contribute your experiences and advice please email us at:  tenantexperiences@groupmail.com (All contributions must be a minimum of 300 words and include your name, contact number, address, a copy of your lease, all which will all be kept private and destroyed upon confirmation.)

The post below has been recommended by the Tenant Community as extremely helpful and important information. 

By Working Together Tenants And Small Landlords Can Get A Better Understanding of the Issues And Improve The Ontario Rental Industry.

Let’s all face issues straight on and work to make the Ontario Rental Industry not only an example for Canada, but for the world!

 

THE ULTIMATE LOOPHOLE FOR TENANTS TO WIN! Become A “Tenant-Landlord” And Make A Hell Of A Lot Of Money (And Never Get Evicted!) – Part 1

Real World Advice To Help Tenants Survive!

You Can Bring In “Guests” Who Are Really “Tenants” Who Live There Permanently And Pay Rent To You!” (And There’s Nothing Your Landlord Can Do)

Ontario Tenants are under attack. Unlike in most other places, in Ontario evictions are being sped up by the evil capitalist Ford government. Tenants have no legal protections and can’t even get “in person” LTB hearings where we can defend ourselves.

The Landlord and Tenant Board has become a corrupt “Eviction Machine”. They even want to charge Tenants $25,000 to record people getting evicted on Zoom.

The System Is Rigged: Tenants Need New Strategies To Protect Our Lives And Our Homes

The dirty secret is privileged landlords and their high priced legal teams don’t want Tenants to know that the only way the “Ford system” can quickly evict you is if you don’t pay rent.

Tenant “group marches” and other tactics are bourgeois pipe dreams and won’t save hundreds of thousands of families being thrown on to the streets in the next couple of months. 

These “tenant groups” should put down their bong pipes and help real people who need help all over Ontario!

I suspect many of these so-called tenant groups get government funding to lead Tenants astray and into a horrific situations.

Simple Fact: You Pay Rent And You Won’t Get Evicted

Not Paying Rent – This is the landlords only “fast option” to Holocaust Tenants.

They can fast fast track but it’s only non-payment of rent.

If you pay rent, you won’t be evicted!

But Last Year Doug Ford Said Tenants Don’t Have To Pay Rent!

Ford was lying!

He’s a liar. It was always the plan to trick Tenants into not paying so they could be easily and quickly evicted.

Okay, But I’m Out Of Work! How Can I Pay So Much Rent To My Landlord?

The key is not to fight the system, but to manipulate the system to survive and win.

Most of the Tenant groups out there rightfully want to fix the system. But they are day dreamers.  They are great and admirable, but in reality we need to strategies to prosper and survive NOW!

The Solution Is To Become A “Tenant-Landlord” To Cover Rent (And Make Nice Juicy Profits!)

Here’s the true defense for Tenants!

Use the the system to make sure you pay rent (so your landlord can’t evict you) and also make huge profits so you can buy rental properties and get rich like your landlords are doing.

Here’s the legal advice the landlord centre gives to landlords and it’s a way for Tenants to get rich and win!

Check out the truth here  from the government landlord site:

“My tenant has additional people in the unit and I suspect he is collecting rent from them but claims they are visitors. What can I do?”

Under the Residential Tenancies Act it is not illegal for a tenant to have temporary or even permanent guests as long as the tenant is still living in the unit. Unfortunately the landlord has no recourse in this situation even if the tenant is collecting rent from these other people. You can only do something if your tenant is not paying you the rent or they are causing damages to the property in which case you would serve the appropriate notices and proceed to the Landlord and Tenant Board to terminate the tenancy

Become A Tenant-Landlord, Pay The Rent, Make Profits And Beat The System!

Bring in “guests” who are really your Tenants.

This a great win-win situation.

You landlord gets paid so cannot evict you, you get to stay in your home and are protected because you pay rent, you help others with low cost housing for them and their families….WIN!!!

Good Landlords Will Support You And Appreciate Rent Paid During This Deadly Pandemic

This is a win-win-win situations for landlords to get their rent, tenants to be protected, and new guests/tenants to find a home for a low rental cost!

Win-Win-Win.

Let’s Fix The Laws/Encourage Landlords To Invest in 2020

Wednesday, January 1st, 2020

There are going to be some big changes coming to the Ontario rental industry in 2020. Last year the Ontario Landlords Association was asked by the Ministry to provide our recommendations for changes.

We provided a very thorough and comprehensive list that would not only encourage more investment into Ontario residential rentals, but would protect both good landlords and good tenants.

Tenant Groups Are Lobbying Hard

While we presented an important list, the tenant activist groups sent in theirs. Typical “blame the landlord” ideas which would lead good people to avoid investing and hurt tenants.

It’s Time For Change! (Before it’s too late)

We keep hearing about small landlords who face huge delays for Hearings and manipulative tenants who “use the system” to avoid paying rent and even harassing their landlords.

The key to the low vacancy rate is to change the rules to encourage more investment, especially from smaller private individuals.

Let Us Know Your Thoughts and Opinions

Please take the survey and also let us know what you think should be changed to make things better for small residential landlords in 2020!

Ontario Landlords – Let’s Improve the Residential Tenancies Act

OLA campaign 1

The Ontario Landlords Association Wants The System To Be Improved For Small Residential Landlords. A Better System Will Lead To More Investment and Better High Quality, Affordable Housing For Tenants!

According to a report by CBC News called Ontario mulls changes to rental rules, prompting concern from tenants groups the Ontario Liberal government wants to make it easier for small residential landlords to evict problem tenants.

After listening to small landlords and far-reaching and passionate landlord groups such as the Ontario Landlords Association and our hard working members, the government realizes there is a need to improve the system to help small landlords. This will lead to more investment, more rentals and more affordable housing in the province.

Premier Kathleen Wynne is a former Municipal Affairs and Housing Minister. At that time, the Premier made it clear to the Ontario Landlords Association the Ministry took our concerns seriously. The Ministry wants to help both good landlords and good tenants by making the rules fair which would lead to more high quality rental units (and more investment by professional, service-oriented residential landlords).

On Monday, March 14th, 2016 the government announced the details of an important update to the Ontario Long-Term Affordable Housing Strategy.

This updated strategy would be both bold and transformative to support the challenge of chronic homelessness in Ontario within a decade. As part of the update, the government has floated some proposals to improve the Residential Tenancies Act and improve the law and rules.

These proposed changes are very important to help small residential landlords in Ontario succeed and to encourage more investment in the residential rental sector in Ontario. Some of the ideas proposed include:

1. Eviction for Smoking

Tenants can be evicted if they smoke in a “smoke free building”. 

2. Pets

Landlords will be able to prohibit pets in their rental units if the landlord lives in the same building.

3. Fixing the Rent Increase Guideline

The government proposes to examine whether or not the Rent Increase Guideline accurately calculates the true costs for landlords in a given year. The system for BC landlords is something to look at carefully.

The Ontario Landlords Association has made the government aware of these and other important issues for small residential landlords. Your voice has been heard.

Also in the report the current Minister for Municipal Affairs and Housing, Ted McMeekin, stated the Liberal government is still in the phase of getting more ideas. The goal is to encourage more small residential landlords to invest in rental properties and to rent out part of their properties.

Let’s Improve the Residential Tenancies Act

The Ontario Landlords has voiced the concerns of small residential landlords in Ontario to both the government and the media regarding the problems in the Residential Tenancies Act. Our tens of thousands of landlord members in every corner of Ontario know things need to change and welcome the provincial government also seeing this need.

We Have Lots Of Recommendations How To Improve the Rules For Ontario Landlords!

The Ontario Landlords Association has sent our proposed changes to the government. These proposals are from our members who want to create a better system in Ontario to help good landlords invest in and run safe, affordable rentals for tenants.

Send Your Experiences, Suggestions and Ideas to Us

The Ontario Landlords Association wants to hear from YOU!

Tell us about your experiences as a small landlord and your suggestions and ideas at landlordvoice@lobbyist.com.

Let’s make it happen, together

By making important changes to the Residential Tenancies Act and the Landlord and Tenant Board, both landlords and tenants will helped. Some groups want to create a  “landlord vs. tenant” system. This is what we have now and it hurts both parties.

Let’s make Ontario a world leader in encouraging excellent, safe, affordable housing. Together we are strong.
