Landlord And Tenant Disputes
Landlords are subject to specific legal rules in Ontario. Under these rules, landlords often face challenges when disputes arise with tenants. If you are a landlord facing problems with tenants in a basement apartment, in-law suite or multi-unit rental property, we can help. We provide advice on tenant issues and represent landlords in proceedings before the Landlord Tenant Board.
