Whoaaaaa....JanetS wrote:yes, but they do have your credit card. I wonder if they could charge it every month till the damages are covered? If you smoke in their room they get their cleaning fee (usually around $250). And the big chains can afford a good lawyer to sue if the room is ruined.
And unlike the LTB, they have a chance of getting their $ back. And, it is impractical for them to run a credit check (hence the need for the SIN) for every single guest who checks in.
Now, landlords can't FORCE a prospective tenant to give their SIN. The prospective tenant has the right to say NO. And the landlord has the right to say NEXT.
Mellow out sister.
