Ask a Canada Law Question, Get an Answer ASAP!
Are you saying you moved out early because of the pot smoking?Did you complain to the landlord about this problem?
Then this is not about compassionate reasons which have no legal basis but in fact it is about your right.
Your landlord failed to comply with his legal obligations and you had to move out.The rent should be given back for that reason and in fact you should seek a further rent abatement since you could not enjoy your premises.
But you should remove all your items from the premises now.
To be blunt, I am quite puzzled by your response.
First, I never said to retain a lawyer. Secondly, you very well may need a lawyer but I am certainly not your lawyer. I'm practicing lawyer who provides basic legal information online. I do not act for you I do not go to the landlord tenant board for the court for you. And if I were to be able to do that then it would not be for the fee you paid the site which I get a fraction of. Rather, you would have to pay regular legal fees.
But most importantly, I did provide you with an answer. I said that you were entitled to get some rent back and that in fact you can get more than what you just paid for this past month. I said that because you complained about the pot smoking and the landlord did not deal with it he did not fulfill his legal obligation to you and that you should seek a rent abatement. Of course, I'm not the person to seek it for you. That is unrealistic and unfair.
