JA: Has anything been filed or reported?
Customer: 3. For breach of landlord obligation
JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?
Customer: Not yet logged to PRTB He has given me written notice that he never said he will fix the issue but anyway he said its my fault as I did not put in writing

1. It is lawful to record your own conversations with a third party such as a landlord. You don't have to tell the third party, such as the landlord that you are recording the conversation. You can then rely upon this recording in court if you wish as it is lawfully obtained evidence. So, if you wish to adduce the recording before the PRTB, you can do so, to prove what the landlord did in fact say at the time you spoke.
