Landlord & Tenant Issues

Residential tenancy law in Canada is regulated by the each province. The common approach involves a basic law that outlines tenant and landlord rights and duties, with an administrative forum to deal with disputes.

In Ontario, the Landlord and Tenant Board resolves disputes between landlords and tenants concerning their rights and responsibilities under the Residential Tenancy Act, including issues such as rent increases, evictions, and maintenance as well as landlord and tenant rights.

Under the Residential Tenancy Act, a landlord or tenant can file an application with the board for the determination of their respective rights. Kumar Appasawmy can represent you in front of the Landlord and Tenant Board.

Kumar Appasawmy Paralegal Services offers assistance to clients in Landlord Tenant disputes with document preparation and representation at the Ontario Landlord and Tenant Board.  The Landlord and Tenant board was constituted to settle disputes between landlords and tenants and to provide information about the Residential Tenancies Act.

If you wish to evict a tenant, Kumar Appasawmy Paralegal Services will start the process after obtaining the particulars of your matter and deciding the necessary steps to follow.

Occasionally, upon reception of documents by the tenant, the latter is inclined to react positively to comply with the request being made. In the event that the serving of documents does not make the tenant to react, we will pursue all the necessary steps to obtain an Order in your favour.

If the tenant still does not comply with the Order/Judgment for payment, Kumar Appasawmy Paralegal Services, will file a Garnishment with the Sheriff’s Office.

Contact Kumar Appasawmy Paralegal Services for information and assistance with your paralegal needs. We will assist you to find a satisfactory solution to your tenant problem.
