Validition of N1
« on: November 02, 2023, 05:24:49 pm »
I received an N1 signed by my landlord's spouse, but her name is not on the lease agreement. The N1 was sent to me via the landlord's email. Is this N1 valid?

I'm not a lawyer but the rules around this seem clear enough.

I should think that common courtesy suggests letting the tenant know the why's and wherefore's, plus any details like changes in ownership or at the "head office" - ergo at the landlord's end.

And the LTB *does* caution the landlord: if they don't get it right, the form may not fly.

Also - there is at least a small mention of acceptable methods of service on the LTB pages.

This is something that's bothered me for a long time. Nothing worse than having something important ending up buried with the junk mail, or in your spam folder.  :(
