Ask a Canada Law Question, Get an Answer ASAP!
Hello! My name is Debra (formerly known as Legal Ease). Thank you for your question. I'm reviewing it now, and will post back again shortly.
I am sorry to hear this.
Yes you do have to pay rent or you can be evicted in 10 days.
But you can apply to the Landlord Tenant Board for a rent abatement and they may give you an order that requires the landlord to pay you so you will get a refund of some of the rent and that can go back a while if you made requests for repairs in writing.
I suggest you call the Landlord Tenant Board today and discuss this with a staff member and decide how best to proceed after they review the process with you over the phone.
Here is a link to their contact information:
Does that help as a starting point?Please feel free to post back with any follow-up questions you may have. If you don't have any then I hope I have earned a 5 star rating but if you don't feel that I have please don't hesitate to reply back and let me know what more I can do to assist you. Finally, please know that even after you rate me I will be here for you and you can ask follow-up questions if you think of them later on at no further charge of course.
Is there anything more I can help you with at this point in time?
