Contact Civil Litigations today for a trusted Toronto landlord paralegal. We can help you get rid of your unwanted tenant as quickly and as smoothly as possible. You might think that you don't need to 'waste your money' on an attorney for a simple eviction matter. To which, there are two points to consider:
1) We're not attorneys. We are paralegals. That means that we can do everything an attorney does but at a fraction of the cost.
2) Landlords often don't realize that there are a number of steps that need to be taken in an eviction. If proper paperwork isn't filed satisfactorily and or protocol isn't followed, you could lose your eviction case.
What are Evictable Offenses?
There are several reasons why a landlord may decide to evict a tenant. Just in case you're wondering if you are within your legal parameters to evict your unwanted tenant, here's a short list of reasons to evict:
Leading Up to the Eviction Hearing with the Landlord and Tenant Board
You must give the unwanted tenant two documents before the eviction hearing. One says what you want the Board member to do. The other document, called an affidavit, gives the reasons why you want the Board member to evict. Your tenant may not agree with what you say, and they will have a chance to present their side of the story on the day of the hearing.
In the hearing room, the landlord will speak first. Either you can speak or have your paralegal speak for you. After you speak, the tenant will have an opportunity to defend themselves. After hearing from both parties, the member will make a decision. Decisions made by Landlord and Tenant Board members are legal rulings that have the same finality and legality as a decision made by a judge.
