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 that you are in a difficult situation.

What are the grounds for eviction?

Not an eviction; the tenant has given notice to vacate tennancy. All their choice.

No call thanks.


If they do no t move out you will have to get an order from the Landlord Tenant Board. You will get the order without a doubt but it won't be immediate as you will need to get a hearing date.

I suggest calling the Board now and asking how to get the date as quickly as possible if this happens.

You would also be able to sue them for any damages you sustain as a result of their failure to move out on time and you can tell them that if you learn then are not planning to move out by the deadline.

Here is a link to the contact information you will need for the Board:

Does that fully answer your question?
