How to win a landlord-tenant dispute

August 14, 2012



How to win at the Landlord and Tenant Board


In this article, you can see how some recent landlord and tenant cases have been decided at the Landlord and Tenant Board. The decisions offer important lessons for landlords, tenants and real estate salespeople. In all cases, you need to be able to demonstrate that you are acting in good faith.

For example, one of the cases demonstrates why it is always preferable to have a tenant agree to pay for utilities themselves. Another case illustrates that you cannot use a rent increase to penalize a tenant. Also, be careful before signing any rent-to-own agreement as it may not be possible for the new tenant/buyer to evict an existing tenant.
