Tenancies (2)




After a somewhat lengthy delay the landlord tribunal is being held on Wednesay where the tenants of the apartment complex will hopefully find resolution in rent reduction, as well as the proper repairs to their units (preferably in a timely manner). It has been a time consuming endeavour to collect tenant signatures in order to obtain a city grant to fund a paralegal to attend.

UPDATE: 17JULY13 - Through mediation at the Ontario Landlord and Tenant Tribunal our Tenant Assocation has obtained retro-active rent reduction on the rent increase over the guidelines, as well as positive feedback on working together to provide satisfactory resolutions on repairs to units.

This photo is of an old farmstead on the central plains in Saskatchewan.

Best of luck with the tribunal.
Love the farmstead.

Nice to see that things are moving forward. That kind of things usually only feeds the lawyers.

So good to hear that the mediation brought some very positive results, good luck onwards!

Was thinking of you the other day, driving by Lipica in Slovenia: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lipica

Hope it all goes well Barbara. The photo of the farmstead looks idyllic.

Leah, this farmstead was much improved over the first photo. I was hoping to reflect that such an improvement be made in this complex.

RuneE, I was able to sit in on the mediation portion which revealed what the real problems were. Now it's a case of resolving those areas over time.

Merisi, lovely! The stud farm there would be great to see. Horses are just the thing to ease my stress.

Phoenix, thank you.
