Customer Question
I am renting an...

I am renting an apartment and my landlord increased my rent $100 2 months after i moved in it has been 18 months since my my increace in rent and i just found out that there are LTB guidelines that my landlord must follow. Could you please tell me how to proceed with this matter?

Lawyer's Assistant: Because laws vary from place to place, can you tell me what state the property is in?

I live in Oshawa Ontario Canada

Lawyer's Assistant: Has anything been filed or reported?

I live in a 1 bedroom apartment in the top part of a house

Lawyer's Assistant: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?

I just wanted to know how to proceed with this manner. We have also have bed bugs in this house and my landlord wants me to pay for 1/2 the cost. We had bed bugs last fall and he made me pay for 1/2 of the cost. I just found out as well that it is the landlord's responsibility to pay for that as well. I calculated that with the increase in the rent and the payment for the bed bug extermination he owes me $2200.00. Could you please help me with this situation.

I am sorry to hear of this difficult situation.

Do you share a bathroom or kitchen with your landlord?

Did you get a chance to read my questions to you? I cannot answer you in a meaningful way until I gather the appropriate information. There is no charge for us going up and back of course.

Thanks!
