Common Tenant Problems - Evictions

This section is for renters to discuss issues regarding Evictions.
(Note!! Information pertaining to Renovictions is available in its own section of this forum.)

Receiving an eviction notice is serious – you could lose your home. If you have received notice that your landlord is applying to have you evicted, then you should know your rights, learn about the eviction process in Ontario, and make sure to attend the Eviction Hearing that may happen at the Landlord and Tenant Board. These information sources can help you to learn about evictions:


If you are Having Trouble Paying Your Rent...

If you are having trouble paying your rent then you may be able to find help from the Toronto Rent Bank. The rent bank provides interest-free loans to qualifying individuals.

Neighbourhood Information Post (NIP) also provides financial help to people in need.

The City of Toronto also has some applicable information here: Get Help Paying for Housing.

Renoviction
« on: June 15, 2022, 12:57:52 pm »
I am wondering if there are renters that are going through a similar situation as i am.

I have lived in my apartment for 12 years. I live in a duplex with 5 other apartments. We have had the same landlords for a very long time, and recently they decided to sell the property. Within about a month in new ownership. Myself and the 4 other units were served N13' eviction notices. Reasoning: to demolish the building and build a single family home. There is suspicion that the owner does not live in this Country, as we are being managed by a third party property management company. ( seems incredibly disorganized) The owner has not provided any permits for the property and our eviction date is December 2023. We (the tenants) have legal representation and are going to fight this "renoviction" as many of us have lived there for over 10 years, some even as long as 20 years. This is very much our home.

Just curious if there are any other tenants out there that have gone through this before and have gone to a hearing and what their experience was. Or if anyone is going through a renoviction with similar circumstances.

I am so sorry to hear about the hell that your landlord is putting you through.

Could I suggest that you register your renoviction with Renovictions TO: https://www.renovictionsto.com/

Renovictions TO maintains a list and map of renovictions across the city, which is very helpful to those who are fighting renovictions (because no government entity keeps records or statistics regarding renovictions).  Having basic data concerning this abusive practice is essential.
