What is the cause of the noise? What are they asking you to do?
They may succeed because it is the duty of the Board to provide each owner with peaceful enjoyment of their homes and it is also your duty so if the owners are complaining you have to do whatever it takes to make sure the noise stops.
And if it continues with this tenant or another they will have a good chance of succeeding in a legal proceeding against you.
Of course you are restricted by the Residential Tenancies Act. But you can evict the tenant if the tenant is disturbing the neighbours and so as long as the Board knows you are taking steps to evict the tenant that will be good enough.You should not terminate the lease immediately. You should give the tenant a warning and cc a copy of the warning to the management company.You could be fined and if you don't pay the fines they can seek to have the condo seized and sold.
There is no minimum or maximum fine. What the fine will be is set out in your by-laws.
You can forbid pets and if the lease is breached that is grounds for eviction.
Yes you have sufficient evidence to seek to evict this tenant.
I am sorry. I didn't know that.
But it is still a breach of the tenancy agreement to deny the others the right to peaceful enjoyment of their homes.
Who said you can do this?
Condominiums definitely do this all the time. I just was not aware that the Residential Tenancies Act would not allow this type of prohibition. If the Landlord Tenant Board has stated that pets can be restricted then you will be fine but I find that hard to believe because if the Act is supposed to allow tenants to have the right to a pet in their home I don't see how a landlord can restrict the size of the pet. Condominiums are different because it's about owners making decisions and not that of the landlord making a decision for a tenant.I suggest that you contact the Landlord Tenant Board tomorrow and simply asked them.
