I am sorry to hear this.

You are right that she has to deal with the pest problem and you are right that she cannot do that to your guests. But you are wrong about not paying rent. That is clear grounds for eviction.

What you will have to do if you don't want to be evicted is pay the rent. At the same time make a demand in writing that she rid the home of pests and that she cease from doing this to your guests. Tell her if she fails to comply immediately you will bring an application to the Landlord Tenant Board for an order that she deal with the pest and not treat you guests that way and for a rent abatement.

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.
