According to Statistics Canada, almost one-third of all current Ontario households rent their homes. Housing issues have been at the forefront of all Ontario governments for a long time. With the ebb and flow of the economy and ever-changing societal developments, many rental issues have unfortunately been the norm.
For time immemorial, the prevailing belief in Ontario has been that a person’s right to security and enjoyment of his home deserves special protection. The right to security applies even if one’s home is rented. The legal concept of security of tenure has been in existence for almost half a century in Ontario. Governments developed the security of tenure concept because of the societal importance of housing and the imbalance in knowledge, power and resources between Landlords and Tenants.
There are five main pillars in the legal concept of security of tenure:
The majority of the cases at the LTB revolve around these five pillars. It is important to note that most Landlords and Tenants are well-intentioned, and many tenancies work out well for both parties. When either party is ill-intentioned or contravenes one or more of the above principles, severe financial harm will occur. Whether a Landlord or a Tenant, you need to immediately contact Denali Paralegal Services to either mitigate your losses or vigorously defend a claim.
