Whose Job Is It to Clear the Snow?

Whose job is it to clear the snow at a rental property? The tenant or the landlord?

A woman in London makes a case for a by-law requiring landlords to clear the snow from tenants’ walkways and driveways.

The OLA’s rep called the idea of ignoring what is put in the lease ‘ridiculous.’

November 2009 “Tip of the Month”

Saturday, November 7th, 2009

When verifying rent from previous or current landlords, I suggest you try this: ask the landlord to verify a rent that is significantly higher or lower than what your tenant applicant says they paid. Chances are very good that the true landlord knows what the rent is and will be able to correct your mistake. If the landlord agrees with whatever dollar amount you said, they could be an imposter covering for the tenant. This is not a guaranteed way to find out if you’re speaking to the true landlord, but it can give you some clues on how to proceed. Be careful out there!
