Affordable Professional Representation For Rent Arrears, Evictions for Non-Payment of Rent, and more.
Ranger Paralegal Service offers legal representation services for Landlord and Tenant Board cases involving Rent Arrears, Evictions for Non-Payment of Rent, and more as legal issues that fall within the purview of the Residential Tenancies Act, 2006, S.O. 2006, Chapter 17. Confusingly, where a dispute exists between residential landlords and former tenants, certain matters must still proceed within the Landlord Tenant Board while certain other matters must proceed in the Small Claims Court. Frequently, where multiple issues arise, some issues must proceed at the Landlord Tenant Board and other issues in the Small Claims Court. Failure to bring issues to the proper forum can result in a dismissal of proceedings and possibly with a loss of right to redo or restart proceedings in the proper fashion and within the correct forum. Other matters, such as commercial tenancy cases are outside the jurisdiction of the Landlord Tenant Board and may be litigated in the Small Claims Court depending on the legal issues involved and whether the matter involves less than the $35,000 per Plaintiff limit.
