I am sorry to hear that it sounds like you are in a difficult situation.

What does your lease say is included in the rental premises?

Ask Your Own Canada Law Question
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
Only that the landlord charges the rent because she asked what the lease said.
Lawyer: Debra, Lawyer replied 7 months ago

I don't understand that answer.

Is there a written lease?

Customer reply replied 7 months ago

Lawyer: Debra, Lawyer replied 7 months ago

Is there something in writing or not?

there is a written tenacy for this address and before you ask there is no mention of the back yards being a common ground area.. as i said it is two seperaste addresses but on the same plot of ground.
Lawyer: Debra, Lawyer replied 7 months ago

Does is say the back yard is included in the rent the way it would a parking spot or garage for example?

Do you have the lease that you could attach for me to review?

I can't keep sitting here answering questions...I am disabled and was promised priority from you on this and instead I am suffering more and more pain waiting for your answer; either he can or he can't...after two hours plus you could have looked the answer up let alone know it. Your not willing to phone or talk on the phone unless I pay out another 79 to make it easier on me as you put it and my experience is not that of a happy camper after getting the run around and being treated like a dummy until Jen from billing helped me.
Lawyer: Debra, Lawyer replied 7 months ago

I asked to review the lease as the description is important.

If he lists a garage, a driveway, a front porch, back deck etc. the court could draw inferences but I cannot know what it says because you think you only have to tell me what you think is important. As a senior lawyer I am in a by far better position to tell you what information is important.

I also have no idea why you are blaming me for time delays. I answered you at 1:20 and you didn't answer me for 1/2 hour. That was your delay. Then your answer made no sense.

Do you want to go ahead or not? Also I am not asking for the call and in fact would not agree to speak to you. The site offers that option.

Enough you already billed me 68 and no answer yet But I can't take this kind of treatment any more. I'm an adult disabled but also retired and I think I have been treated pretty shabbily. I'm out of here Jay Grauer 778 378
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
I honestly have been at this since 936 my time in vancouver
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
I have been here waiting for calls or messages from you all this time while on the phone with jen
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
I have answered every question you have asked. I told you there was a tenancy then a tenacy in writing then no mention of back yard
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
I can not send agreement as printer acting up don't have it on computer to copy and send it just states for this adress and noise and care of lawn and yard.
Lawyer: Debra, Lawyer replied 7 months ago

Please ask for a refund. If you are out of here then so am I.
