Customer Question
Hello, I have a...

Hello, I have a question.. I rent a barn and pastures for horses. I believe the property is a commercial property. My rental contract states that I am to pay $2150 pet month. After signing, my land lord decided I have to also pay HST. So I have actually been paying $2430. There is nothing in my contract about paying HST .I have been paying it because I feel there is no other option and that I will be evicted if I don't... so my question is, can he just decide to charge me HST when it's not written in the contact?

Lawyer's Assistant: What province are you in? It matters because laws vary by location.

Ontario

Lawyer's Assistant: What steps have you taken so far?

This is the first thing I thought Of, to ask someone who has a better understanding of these laws

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

I've been paying this for a year. I have not paid my Dec rent, as I decided to close my business due to lack of business and the state of the property. My landlord says it's "as is" and the fences are literally rotting at the ground and falling over. I gave 60 days notice and paid first and last upon signing a year ago
