Re-posted from ON THE RADAR, a publication of Community Legal Education Ontario (CLEO)

Tenants in Ontario are facing new rules that may seriously affect their rights and responsibilities. These changes to the Residential Tenancies Act became law on September 1.

This month’s On the Radar looks at 2 of the more significant new rules.

Landlords can now apply to the Landlord and Tenant Board (LTB):

  • after a tenant has moved out, and
  • when a tenant does not pay for utilities that they’re responsible for.
