Benchmark Legal Offices helps tenants to resolve disputes by first reviewing the facts and issues and then by working to negotiate a resolution with the landlord. If resolution is evasive, Benchmark Legal Offices can prepare the required Landlord Tenant Board forms and advocate at Landlord Tenant Board hearings.
Landlord Tenant Services
Common Issues Include:
Benchmark Legal Offices provides legal services for Landlord and Tenant Board matters involving Allegations of Failure of Landlord to Properly Maintain Premises, and more, as issues common to concerns governed by the Residential Tenancies Act, 2006, S.O. 2006, Chapter 17. With this said, sometimes when a dispute involves a residential landlord and tenant, certain issues must proceed at the Landlord Tenant Board and other issues must proceed at the Small Claims Court. The failure to bring specific issues into the proper forum may cause a dismissal the proceedings. It is also possible that when a dispute is brought into the wrong forum, the right to a redo or a restart of proceedings in the proper forum is lost. Accordingly, choosing the proper forum is imperative. With other cases, such as commercial tenancy disputes, the issues are always beyond the jurisdiction of the Landlord Tenant Board and must be pursued in the Small Claims Court (or higher court) depending on circumstances and the legal issues involved and whether the matter involves less than the $35,000 per Plaintiff limit.
