Common Tenant Problems - Other Problems

Please add posts in appropriate sections!
For example, problems to do with Rent, or Evictions, etc., should be posted to those respective forum sections.

This area ("Other Problems") is for problems that do not yet have their own section.

If you feel that a particular tenant issue is needs its own forum section then you should post a request for the creation of a new section in the General Discussion area.


Questions not Covered Here?

If you have questions about your rights as a renter or are having problems with your landlord, then there are several terrific sources of reliable information available:
  • The Federation of Metro Tenant Associations (FMTA) is a renter advocacy organisation here in Toronto that has many experts who can answer your questions either by telephone (416-921-9494), postal-mail, or e-mail (hotline@torontotenants.org).

  • If you have questions about hearings at the Landlord and Tenant Board (LTB), either because you or your landlord has scheduled a hearing or you are considering filing a complaint (“tenant application”) at the LTB, there are lawyers and community legal workers who can help. There is no cost for their service. These Tenant Duty Counsel advisors are available at most LTB offices, and are also available to speak with by telephone.

  • You can also speak with a layer at your local Community Legal Clinic (CLC) office. Your local CLC can provide you with legal advice or connect you with legal representation. Each CLC office services a specific area of the city; check their webpage for more information. It is usually best to visit during one of their “Drop In” times, if they have them. You can try telephoning, but these are busy offices, so it is usually faster to drop in than to call. You can find the CLC office that services your area by following this link.

Hi Zulfiqar,

Your landlord cannot unilaterally remove services that you have.  So if you have a parking spot for your unit, they aren't allowed to just take it away.

But you said this was the "visitor" parking...  if your lease states that you have access to visitor parking for your guests, then they cannot do this, but I suspect that this isn't listed in your lease, in which case it's unclear.

If I were you I would telephone (or e-mail) the experts at the FMTA:  The Federation of Metro Tenant Associations (FMTA) is a renter advocacy organisation here in Toronto that has many experts who can answer your questions either by telephone (416-921-9494), postal-mail, or e-mail (hotline@torontotenants.org).

Let us know what they say.

- Rick
