The landlord and tenant usually enter into a tenancy agreement or lease for an agreed term, the right of the tenant and the rights of the landlord are set out, and they both hope that the tenancy is quiet and peaceful. Of course, the reality of the landlord tenant relationship is often quite different.

To govern disputes between landlord and tenant, there is special legislation known as the Residential Tenancies Act (formerly the Tenant Protection Act) which is enforced in a tribunal known as the Landlord Tenant Board (formerly the Ontario Rental Housing Tribunal).

Ask a paralegal about your lease agreement, your rights as a landlord in Ontario, rights as a tenant in Ontario, landlord and tenant law, what to expect at the tribunal and other Ontario landlord and tenant questions.
