Dangerous Weather Leads to Cancellations of some Landlord and Tenant Board Hearings
If you are a landlord in Southern Ontario take a look out the window and you will likely see an onslaught of snow hitting us hard.
Environment Canada has issued a severe weather warning and is predicting a blizzard with a snowfall of 25 centimetres coming by tomorrow. It could be the big snow storm since 2008.
Extreme Weather Conditions Lead to Landlord and Tenant Board Cancellations
Because of the blizzard some Landlord and Tenant Board hearings that were originally scheduled for tomorrow (Feb. 8/13) are now cancelled.
Landlord and Tenant Board hearings scheduled for Friday, February 8th, 2013 at the following locations have been cancelled and will be re-scheduled:
1. Goderich, Ontario (Address: Goderich Town Hall, 57 West Street, Goderich ON N7A 2K5)
2. Burlington, Ontario (2331 New Street, Burlington ON L7R1J4)
The hearings will be re-scheduled for a later date. This is will lead to a lot of additional stress for landlords who have been waiting for their LTB hearing for weeks already to evict non-paying tenants.
If you have any questions about the cancellation of tomorrows hearings you can contact the LTB Call Centre. The toll-free number is 1-888-332-3234.The Ontario Landlord and Tenant Boards informs tenants and landlords on their rights and responsibilities.
