Landlords Are Scheming To Intimidate Tenants And Pressure Us To Give Up Our Legal Rights!
May 1st is quickly approaching and renters are under even more pressure to make rent due to the Covid 19 pandemic.
A loophole in Ontario’s eviction ban means landlords can still threaten tenants with eviction notices, leading some renters to vacate their homes in the middle of this life threatening pandemic.
The Ontario government banned new eviction orders last month, with Premier Doug Ford promising “no one will be kicked out of their home or their rental apartments based on not being able to pay the rent.”
But the government later stated landlords can still serve renters an “eviction notice,” even though “eviction hearings and orders are on hold.”
So while landlords can’t evict you, and there the Landlord and Tenant Board is closed and landlords cannot even get a Hearing to “try” to evict you, they are still trying.
And many are using unethical dirty tricks to make you leave your home (illegally) in these trying times!
Property Management companies like Berkley Inc. and Westbury Rentals have sent out N4s.
And small landlords who often act so pure and innocent (“we were tenants too“) are the worst offenders in trying to trick and intimidate tenants.
-An eviction notice is NOT an eviction order.
