“I Am Only Renting From Fully Vaccinated Landlords And You Need To Do It Too!”

Wednesday, September 1st, 2021

If Landlords Want My Money I Need To Make Sure The Property AND The Landlord Is Safe!

I Need To See Proof Of Vaccination Before I Sign The Lease & Pay The Landlords Mortgage So They Get Rich!

This is just my opinion but it’s right and everyone should follow my advice to protect yourself and your loved ones. Never back down!

Landlords need tenants more than we need them. This is especially true for small landlords who are often only able to pay their mortgage for their condo, duplex, or single family home if they get rent from us.

If we don’t pay, or the unit is empty they will face bankruptcy fast! Small landlords are over-leveraged and NEED our rent money to survive.

This is how the system really works: tenants struggle and work long hours every day just to pay the rent/mortgage for landlords who borrowed from a bank (often with dubious help from brokers and fake pay stubs) and need to pay the bank every month!

Tenants Pay Money And Demand Safe Homes…Including Safe Landlords!

Smart tenants will only pay our hard earned money to landlords who have safe properties. We want to make units are legal, units that have smoke detectors, rental properties that are clean and with up to date furnaces and window.

In This Horrible Pandemic You Need To Make Sure Your Landlord Is Safe

Times have changed. In years past making sure your rental property was safe was enough.

It’s not enough anymore.

When you rent from a small landlord you will have lots of “interactions”.

In fact, many small landlords are control freaks and will enter your property without legal notice! Who know what they touch and do when you are not in your home.

They often don’t follow the law and many small landlords like “face to face” confrontations to bully tenants. Even if you demand a working fridge or stove they want to come over and try to convince you “don’t really need a fridge or stove.”

This means the landlord can infect you and your family and you can all die!

And even if you are few days late in paying your pound of flesh, errrr, I mean “rent” they will freak out and come over and knock on the doors screaming.

Protect Yourself From C0vid19 Spreading Landlords!

Ontario has mandated covid vaccine passports for people to enter bars, theatres, sporting events, and restaurants.

Demand Your Potential Landlord Show Proof Of Double Dose Vaccines Before You Rent From Them…Demand To See Their Covid Vaccine Passport!

There are lots of rental properties on the market. Good tenants can pick and choose which ones you like.

Landlords need your money. They just act proud but they NEED YOU!

Make sure to protect you and your family by demanding proof of being double-dosed with the Covid vaccines to protect you and your loved ones!

Good Landlords Will Have Proof Of Vaccine (Double-Dosed And All New Boosters)

The good landlords you want to rent to will 100% agree with this. They will understand your concerns and provide proof of full vaccination.

These are landlords who respect you, society and themselves.

Tenants Only Rent From Landlords Who Can Prove They Are Fully Vaccinated

With so many choices, only rent from landlords who care about protecting you and your family.

“Pay your rent to me even I infect you & your children pay me!”

Many Small Landlords Are Anti-Vaxxers

Don’t let a landlord who is taking your money breath their deadly disease on to you and your family! Think about your children!

Never rent from those who won’t prove it, as you and your family’s lives are at stake!

Spread this on social media so every tenant will reward good vaccinated landlords and punish those who are too selfish to do so!

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

Tuesday, June 1st, 2021

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.

We’ve heard about so many slimy landlord “help” companies over the past few years. It’s open-season on Tenants!

Whether it’s creating secret bad tenant lists or promising defamatory ways to “kick the asses” of Tenants these companies are not even really helping landlords, but they appeal to landlords’ worst instincts.

As expected, they have a lot of “pumpers” providing misinformation to get their cut of the pie at the expense of good landlords. It’s all about the $$$$.

It’s a shame even good landlords are getting suckered in and will they will pay for their actions soon. It’s just a matter of time, you will see.

Why Can’t We Report Landlords To Credit Bureaus Like Landlords Do?

Because the whole reporting thing is a marketing scam and basically useless!

The whole “report Tenants to the credit bureaus to raise or drop their score” isn’t true like some companies are marketing.

It’ ridiculous and just marketing campaign to get naïve, desperate landlords to pay money and give them the fake illusion of power, LOL!

The dirty little secret the shills won’t tell you is landlords reporting tenants rent doesn’t dent the Tenants’ credit score beyond a small, tiny way that has have no real impact!

It’s basically useless and total gaslighting and won’t help or harm credit scores except in a very, very tiny fashion.  People think this reporting will play a big role in a tenants credit score, but it’s not true!

Sadly so many have been misled and so many small landlord shills are misleading landlords to try to catch some ca$h.

How Ontario Tenants Can Break Your Lease in 2021

Monday, March 1st, 2021

Get Tenant Tips And Tricks From Experienced Tenants On How “Things Really Work” And How You Can Protect Yourself in 2021!

How Ontario Tenants Can Easily & Legally Break Your Lease In 2021!

Because of the hard work of Tenants we finally have some new changes that are fair and promote justice for Tenants.

All the law-abiding landlords out there will support this post because it’s just explaining the rules and laws to help tenants, just as landlords help each other.

Landlords Can’t Lock Tenants In To Fixed Term Leases

In April 2017 we saw the provincial government finally listen to our concerns and they created the Rental Fairness Act which makes changes to the Residential Tenancies Act.

Now landlords can’t collect arrears for rent due once Tenants receive a “Termination Notice”.

You can see in the Residential Tenancies Act, Section 37, that states that once the landlord gives the Tenant a notice of termination, the tenancy ends of that date of termination the landlord put in the notice.

With the Rental Fairness Act we finally get some real clear facts on once the Tenant gets the termination date, you break your lease:

134(1.1) No landlord shall, directly or indirectly, with respect to any rental unit, collect or require or attempt to collect or require from a former tenant of the rental unit any amount of money purporting to be rent in respect of,

(a) any period after the tenancy has terminated and the tenant has vacated the rental unit; or

(b) any period after the tenant’s interest in the tenancy has terminated and the tenant has vacated the rental unit. 2017, c. 13, s. 24 (2).

What Does This Mean For Tenants? It Means You Can Get Out of Fixed Term Leases

The best thing that all Ontario Tenants should know is this gives you an easy way to break your fixed term lease.

And landlords cannot go after you in small claims court or the Landlord and Tenant Board for breaking the lease, because it’s landlords who told YOU TO MOVE.

For example you might want to move because the landlord is a jerk, or the neighbours are noisy or smoking, or maybe you found a nicer or cheaper place.  You are no longer “locked in” like a slave.

How Can Tenants Break a Fixed Term Lease Under the New Rules?

Remember, if the landlord gives you a notice with a “termination date” of “do this or the tenancy ends” you can just….don’t do what they say…and break the lease! 

“Pay By This Date Or Move Out”…Ok, just move out and it’s terminated!

What’s the Best Way For Tenants To Break A Fixed Term Lease?

There are lots of ways now! Sure it’s a little bit sneaky but Tenants have to do what have to do to survive in this unfair situation.

(1) Don’t Pay Rent and Get the N4

Probably the best way to break the lease is just don’t pay rent. The landlord will give you an N4 ‘Pay Up or Be Evicted Notice’ with a termination date. The termination date will usually be 15 days after they give the notice. Since they are the ones who want to terminate the lease you just don’t pay and agree with them…and there is nothing the landlord can do! Again, here’s how it works.

Step 1 – Rent is Due

Step 2 – You Don’t Pay Rent

Step 3 – The landlord wants your money so will give you N4 Notice to End The Tenancy For Non-Payment of Rent

Step 4 – The N4 says: “Pay this amount by…. (This is called the termination date) or Move Out By the Termination Date

Step 5 – Just move out at the termination date and the lease is broken and you are home free!!

(2) Make Some Disturbances and Get the N5

Make lots of noise and the landlord will probably give you an N5 Notice to End Your Tenancy For Interfering With Others, Damage or Overcrowding. It will have a termination date and then you get out of it. I am giving you this notice because I want to end your tenancy. I want you to move out of your rental unit by the following termination date _____

Step 1:  Make Noise, Damages or Overcrowd the rental

Step 2: The Landlord Will Give You an N5

Step 3. The N5 Will Have A Termination Date

Step 4 On or Before the Termination Date……….just move out by the termination date and you are home free!!

Try not to bother other Tenants so much, but noise, smoking or these types of things will lead to an N5 and then you can leave free and in peace for a better, cheaper apartment.

Try to talk with other tenants so if you are making noise or going to smoke or flood the place, they can complain quickly to the landlord get get the N5 process going fast without really creating any trouble for your fellow Tenants.

Being Able To Break Fixed Term Leases Easily Is the First Step in Creating a Better Rental Industry – Especially When It’s The Landlord Telling You To “Obey or Get Out”…So Get Out!

Things are still really unfair. But I want to make sure Tenants are at least aware how the new rules make it okay to break fixed term leases. I’ll write more later on and hope other Tenants and fair-minded landlords can make positive contributions here.

It’s Time For Real Fairness For Ontario Tenants

Let’s work together and finally create a fair playing field for Ontario Tenants. I know many of you will be amazed at my first contribution and there will be many more to come because it’s time for FAIRNESS.

Top 10 Landlord Answers That Are Illegal (And a warning you should not rent from them!)

Monday, February 1st, 2021

FINDING A RENTAL IS NOW EASY AND TENANTS CAN DEMAND OUR RIGHTS: HERE ARE 10 ANSWERS FROM LANDLORDS THAT SHOULD LEAD YOU TO WALK OUT!)

With vacancy rates so high in Toronto and across Ontario tenant applicants can be tough and demand landlords follow the law!

Times have changed and tenants are now in the drivers seat!

When the vacancy rates were so low just a year ago many innocent and vulnerable tenant victims were afraid to ask their potential landlords important questions or they might not never find a home.

Not Being Careful When Choosing A Landlord Can Lead To Problems Later On

While it seems at first something you don’t really need to do, not screening your potential landlord can lead to huge problems down the road.

And these huge problems will occur when you not only least expect them, but when you don’t need need extra stress in your life.

For example, the landlord problems often happen when you have exams, or have important work meetings, or have important relationships visiting you or moving in.

Rental Properties Are A Dime A Dozen And Landlords Need YOU (and your $$$ to cover their costs!)

Please rent my place! Don’t you know I have a mortgage to cover, property taxes, condo fees!

Due to Covid19 many rental properties are empty. This means unlike times prior to the pandemic landlords and their over mortgaged rental properties are a dime a dozen.

Landlords need to fill their rentals and are DESPERATE to get someone in to pay their mortgage for them.

They took the risk and over-leveraged…their whole investment strategy was to sit back and collect rent!

Don’t Listen To The USA Sites!

Many American sites will tell you landlords can ask for things that are illegal covered under the Ontario Residential Tenancies Act.

For example, some American sites your landlord can say:

-We have our own screening policy

This is meaningless because Ontario landlords must follow the rules for screening tenants according the Ontario Human Rights Commission.

If they don’t follow these rules you can take them to the Human Rights Commission and get a huge penalty against them.

The rules in Ontario include:

Housing is a human right

International law says that people in Canada should be able to get good housing that they can afford. To help achieve this in Ontario, tenants and landlords (or housing providers) have rights and responsibilities under the Human Rights Code.

As a tenant, you have the right to equal treatment in housing without discrimination and harassment.

You cannot be refused an apartment, harassed by a housing provider or other tenants, or otherwise treated unfairly because of your:

  • race, colour or ethnic background
  • religious beliefs or practices
  • ancestry, including people of Aboriginal descent
  • place of origin
  • citizenship, including refugee status
  • sex (including pregnancy and gender identity)
  • family status
  • marital status, including people with a same-sex partner
  • disability
  • sexual orientation
  • age, including people who are 16 or 17 years old and no longer living with their parents
  • receipt of public assistance.

You are also protected if you face discrimination because you are a friend or relative of someone identified above.

-We have our own pet policy

In Ontario it is illegal to not allow a tenant to have pets. You can even lie to a corrupt, rule breaking landlord and say you don’t have pets, move in, and then bring in your pets and there is nothing your landlord can do!

-We have our own guest policy

In Ontario tenants can have guests and it’s none of the landlords damn business.

-We have our own lease renewal policy

This is meaningless because in Ontario a lease automatically goes to “month by month” at the end of a fixed term lease.  A landlord can’t kick you out when your lease ends.

-We have our own repairs policy

In Ontario this is meaningless because the landlord is responsible for all repairs.

-We have our own notice to leave policy

This is also all covered in the Residential Tenancies Act. A landlord must give at least 24 hours written notice to the tenant and served to the tenant in a legally acceptable way.

-We have our own policy for you to pay us huge fees for sublets

If you want to move it’s easy in Ontario and already legally covered. You can assign or sublet your apartment.

An even easier way is to just learn how Ontario tenants can legally break a fixed term lease.

-We charge a security deposit, it’s our policy

In Ontario any money other than “first and last” is ILLEGAL.  If the landlords demand it you can pay it, then move in, and take your landlord to the Landlord and Tenant Board (LTB) and get all the money back!

-What is your citizenship or refugee status, it’s our policy to know

This is illegal in Ontario.

-You need to inform me what is your source of income?

This is illegal in Ontario

Tenants Don’t Rent From Unlawful Landlords!

The rental industry is highly regulated in Ontario. Many of your concerns are already protected under LAW and there are severe penalties you can apply to your potential landlord if they break them.

How Can I File A Human Rights Complaint Against An Illegal Landlord?

Yes, and it’s easy.

And many expert tenants say it’s very easy for tenants to win at the OHRC. Go for it!

If you need human rights legal advice or help filing an application with the Human Rights Tribunal of Ontario, contact the Ontario Human Rights Legal Support Centre at: 416-597-4900 or 1-866-625-5179 and speak with a Human Rights Advisor.

To file an application directly with the Human Rights Tribunal of Ontario, visit their website and follow the instructions for How to file an application.

We (The Ontario Human Rights Commission) have many progressive human rights policies that may support your application before the Human Rights Tribunal. If you want the Tribunal to consider our policy position, you have to let them know

I can’t afford another month of an empty rental! My Realtor lied to me!

Do Not Rent From Desperate Landlords Who Break The Law!

Tenants now have power with vacancy rates so high. They are desperate to find someone to rent from them to pay their mortgages and other expenses.

Demand landlords follow the law and find good landlords who know and follow the law.

Reward only lawful landlords with your rent money they are desperate to get from you to survive!
