Recently my son went through a situation with his landlord which was settled before the landlord tenant board in his favor. it's a very long story which began with the issue of a dog. Saturday Feb 4th, the landlord called saying that she would be by Sunday at noon with an inspector. My son thought that this was odd but agreed. When she came, she did not have an inspector but a prospective tenant. My son has not given his notice to leave, how can she do this? Is this legal?
I don't understand why she is thinking about a new tenant.
What province is this?
And has she given any notice?
It sounds like she thinks the tenancy is about to end?
We are in ontario. notice has been received from the landlord. There has been no reason given to her to make her think that my son would be giving notice. She is still upset over the other issue and will not stop trying to get him to leave and will go to any length to do so. It is all about the dog.
It should read no notice has been received from the landlord.
Well then she is being ridiculous as not only has no notice been provided but she needs grounds for eviction.
I think this sounds like harassment.
And he may need to bring an application to the Board.
She is not permitted to do this and given they ruled against her, her motives will be crystal clear.
I think he/you should call the Board tomorrow, run the facts by a customer service staff member and ask how best to proceed.
She is going to need to be put in her place.
She doesn't seem to understand that tenants have rights.
She can be fined.
