Don’t Pay Rent And How You Can Avoid Future Eviction!

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”.  It’s a morality test.

And while we are laid off from work and worried about our future we should “care about the landlords who need to pay their mortgage more than our not dying!”

It’s really makes me gag and want to throw up.

Landlord – Tenant Matters Are A Business Negotiation Of Equals

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.”

The federal and provincial governments have made it clear Tenants should not make paying rent a priority.

In Ontario the Landlord and Tenant Board is closed so if you don’t pay rent there is ABSOLUTELY NOTHING YOUR LANDLORD CAN LEGALLY DO.

So I Don’t Have To Pay May Rent and It’s Okay?

Yes!  It’s not only okay, it’s the right thing to do. Even Premier Ford said this and with the Landlord and Tenant Board closed you cannot be evicted for any reason! You can enjoy life and survive in this challenging era.

My sucker Tenant agreed to move out, now I can raise the rent 100%! HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA

Landlord Tricks – LL Is Offering Me 3 Months Of Rent If I Sign An N11 And Move

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

Here is a common dirty tactic.  Don’t sign the N11. If you move where will you find another apartment at similar rents?  And if you move you will need to pay “first and last” but if you stay in your current apartment you don’t need to pay rent for months!

Tenants Cannot Be Evicted

You do not need to pay rent. Premier Doug Ford said that. So don’t be an idiot and pay rent on May 1st.  As Doug Ford said, use that money for more important things.

Tenants Cannot Be Evicted And What This Means

Use this opportunity to protect yourself and use your money not on paying rent to parasitic landlords.

Don’t feel sorry for your landlord because they cry for help but have multiple properties and just want to make even more profits off our backs in this horrible economy.

How Long Can I Not Pay Rent?

For now it’s at least April but we predict it will me much longer.  Perhaps six months, or a year or even longer. We might even be able to be rent free for 18-36 months! Yes, that’s 3 years of savings for food and education.

What If My Landlord Tells Me To “Pay Up Or Leave?”

That’s illegal.  You can call the police.  The only legal way to evict a Tenant is via the Landlord and Tenant Board (LTB) and that isn’t working.

If you feel threatened CALL THE POLICE ASAP!  The boys in blue are very sympathetic to Tenant victims and will help you and even get your landlord criminal charged.

So What Happens When The LTB Gets Open Again?

Even before this crisis landlords had to wait 6-10 months to get a Hearing.  With the huge backlog it will be at least a year to get any type of Hearing when the virus pandemic ends.

So That Means I Don’t Have To Pay Rent For 1+ Years?

Yes, and this a good thing. Your landlord is already rich and you need to worry about YOU and YOUR FAMILY.

Your landlord is probably living their million dollar bunker anyway.

If I Owe Year Or More Of Rent And Don’t Pay What Happens?

Don’t worry. 

The Board can cancel all your rent debt if YOU HAVE A GOOD STORY SHOWING YOU TRIED BUT NEEDED TO PAY FOR FOOD OVER RENT.

-GET CONCRETE (written, video recording) EVIDENCE  YOU TRIED TO WORK WITH YOUR LANDLORD AND YOUR DEBTS WILL BE VANISHED BY THE LANDLORD AND TENANT BOARD

-IT’S EVEN BETTER IF YOU PAY A LITTLE BIT, AS THEY CAN HELP YOUR CASE…”SEE I PAID WHAT I COULD YOUR HONOUR!”

IF YOU EXPLAIN YOU DIDN’T PAY (OR DIDN’T PAY FULL RENT) WAS DUE TO THE COVID-19 CRISIS…YOU WILL GET THE OPPORTUNITY TO BE ON A “PAYMENT PLAN” INSTEAD OF EVICTION. EXPLAIN YOUR SUPER CHALLENGING ECONOMIC SITUATION AND YOU CAN END UP JUST PAYING $50 MORE A MONTH AND STAY IN YOUR HOME. REMEMBER TO SHOW PROOF OF YOUR BANK ACCOUNT, BILLS, TUITION, ETC.

Collecting debts in Canada is very difficult.  The only real trick landlords have is to garnish wages.  So never tell them where you work.

But if  they won $30,000 -$100,000 you can also just declare bankruptcy and the landlord will NEVER COLLECT YOUR BLOOD SWEAT AND TEARS SAVINGS.

Lesson: By Not Paying Now You Are Saving Thousands Of Dollars.

Help Fellow Tenants By Not Paying Rent On May First.
