Death of a tenant. Ontario. This is my ex husband, I am
this is my ex husband, I am executor of his estate. Most likely a bankrupt estate. The family removed family memorabilia and personal items but left furniture for the landlord to have removed. The landlord is demanding payment for the removal service. This amount would come out of my pocket with little chance to full reimbursement.

I want to just pay and make this person go away but am concerned about what that will mean down the road. … read more
