EVICTIONS RESUMED AS OF AUGUST 1, 2020. This will allow the sheriff to enforce LTB eviction orders that have been issued. If you have an existing eviction order, you should contact NLS or your local legal clinic as soon as possible.
Bill 184 has come into Effect
This new bill has important implications for tenants who have fallen behind in rent. In particular, if your landlord wants you to sign a repayment agreement outside of an LTB hearing or mediation, you should seek legal advice before signing. You should consider reasonable proposals, but if the landlord is proposing an unrealistic or unfair payment plan, you could be at serious risk if you sign a plan you cannot follow. It could lead to the termination of your tenancy without notice. See this information sheet from Advocacy Centre for Tenants Ontario about negotiating repayment plans with your landlord.
