Providing Affordable Legal Help With Eviction for Causing Damage, Eviction for Unlawful Conduct, and more!
Sarah Teal Legal Services offers legal help for Landlord and Tenant Board (the "LTB") cases involving Eviction for Causing Damage, Eviction for Unlawful Conduct, and more as issues in dispute that are governed by the Residential Tenancies Act, 2006, S.O. 2006, Chapter 17. Confusingly, where a dispute exists between residential landlords and former tenants, certain matters must still proceed within the LTB while certain other matters must proceed in the Small Claims Court. Sometimes, when multiple legal issues arise, there are issues that must proceed at the LTB while other issues proceed at the Small Claims Court. Failure to bring issues to the proper forum can result in a dismissal of proceedings and possibly with a loss of right to redo or restart proceedings in the proper fashion and within the correct forum. Other matters, such as commercial tenancy cases are outside the jurisdiction of the LTB and may be litigated in the Small Claims Court depending on the legal issues involved and whether the matter involves less than the $35,000 per Plaintiff limit.
