Landlords Need To Evict Non-Paying Tenants Now!

Wednesday, May 6th, 2020

Small landlords are different than big REIT corporate landlords. Many of us used to rent ourselves, or we have friends and family members who rent.

We are understanding and helpful. We are patient and kind to our tenants. We want to work things out for a win-win situation.

We also need rent to be paid on time in order to survive!

-Many tenants are not paying rent or even a portion of rent.

-Many tenants even with the means to pay are simply saying “No”

In our internal polling over 60% of tenants did not pay rent on May 1st.

WE NEED RENT TO BE PAID OR NON-PAYING BC TENANTS NEED TO BE EVICTED!

We understand many tenants are facing financial difficulties. Do not put their financial problems on the backs of small residential landlords who are also suffering.

Governments should help tenants with grants and interest free loans to help them pay their rent to their small landlords.

We need to open up the legal process and allow small landlords to evict non-paying renters.

If you think this is cruel then government can just give the tenants a grant or a loan, instead of putting all the pressure on small landlords.

Over 50% of our internal polling shows small landlords are going to sell as soon as they can.

This will hurt the entire rental stock of our province.

Landlords have rights

By Hon. Madeleine Meilleur, Ottawa Citizen January 20, 2011

Re: The Public Citizen: New landlord discovers tenants have cards stacked in their favour, Jan. 16.

The Ontario Disability Support Program (ODSP) was created to help people with disabilities to become more independent and live with dignity — something our government takes seriously. However we do not tolerate fraud or the misuse of funds for illegal purposes and I encourage everyone to report such a practice to the proper authorities.

Our government also takes tenant safety seriously, which is why we changed the Residential Tenancies Act to make it easier to evict persons whose actions pose a serious threat. Under the Act, grounds for eviction based on the behaviour or actions of a tenant include damage to a unit and involvement in illegal activity.

Every tenant in Ontario is subject to the same rules regardless of age, gender, ethnicity or whether the tenant is a social-assistance recipient. I would imagine this case is indeed following those rules set out by the Landlord and Tenant Board.

Minister of Community and Social Services
