Personally the lack of call backs is of no surprise to me. Landlords all over the province, especially in the larger cities, are starting to learn that you can't take chances in this business anymore, and the safest way to reject someone you don't want in your property is through silence. You can expect that to become more and more common as time goes on thanks to tenant activists, the OHRC, and rotten criminal tenants ruining it for everyone else.
Good job! Image
The lovely thing about money is that it really doesn’t discriminate. It doesn’t care what color or race you are, what class you are, what your parents did, or even who you think you are. Each and every day starts with a clean slate so that no matter what you did yesterday, today begins anew, and you have the same rights and opportunities as everyone else to take as much as you want. -R.Templar

This landlord strategy will be dealt with in the next amendment of the Residential Tenancy Act. All landlords will be required by law to provide every tenant applicant a written explanation of why they were refused. If a tenant believes the reason is against code grounds, this will be evidence enough to file a complaint where landlords will need to explain themselves in front of a judge!

-some "advocates" are calling for this change already.

But if it should ever happen, that will most certainly be the end of private landlords.

That will be the final nail that is needed in the residential housing coffin.

I say...........bring it on!

The public needs to learn the truth and this news would travel like wildfire.

Landlords who follow the Ontario Human Rights Commission laws have nothing to worry about.

They don't get it .... Jealousy has blinded these people into believing all landlords are rich. They don't understand that capital flows to the point of least resistence. The more rules they make, the less supply of housing. Crappier housing at higher prices. Acivists will get what they deserve. Corporate slums and high end condos will be all that will remain. I am getting out so I won't care. Enjoy..
