Small Ownership Landlords Ontario (SOLO)


The Province of Ontario has failed to protect small residential landlords and as a result they are suffering due to financial losses, and the system has failed them.

Will Davidson LLP is working with SOLO (Small Ownership Landlords Ontario) to find a solution and a remedy for the landlords.

A Notice Letter was delivered to The Province of Ontario dated May 31, 2021 outlining the issues and potential solutions together with being notice of a Class Action, in accordance with the newly enacted Crown Liability and Proceedings Act, 2019 or predecessor legislation.

    My full time working tenants husband, wife (and 3 kids) stopped paying in Jan 2020; I filed L1 in Feb 2020; got Hearing date in June 2020, which got cancelled due to Pandemic lockdown; Meanwhile the tenant harassed and intimidated us as much as he could but we could not even file a complaint-there is no option- LTB takes for ever and nothing really comes out of it. Also 1 year later, tenants moved out, with notice, but withheld the key purposely for a whole month, so that I could not list or rent the property. Also he now bought a new house. Finally he left the key in the mail box and the place was damaged- it took 2 full months to find a repair person to get the jobs done and then list it for rent again. I got the next Hearing in Feb 2021-which got cancelled because at the Hearing, the member found out that the tenant and his legal counsel was not notified of the hearing by LTB?! Then finally got a Hearing on June 25th 2021. It was more than 5 hours long! The tenant lied, played all his games- husband and wife took turns bashing us. We were quiet and patient; Tenants know there is no penalty or consequence for them however badly they harass the house owner or break the RTA laws. In actual practise, the RTA laws only apply to house owners. Tenants are not held accountable in any way. Not even if they verbally or physically assault the house owner-even the police will not charge the tenant.
    After 2 full months, I still do not have an order?! The interest on the rent itself has become a month rent now. So what exactly is the purpose of LTB?
    Why I am I helplessly at the receiving end, for my tenants’ mistakes while suffering loss of rent income? I still had to cough up the mortgage and property tax through all this? At the Hearings, tenants have at most compassion and the house owners are vilified! I do not want to rent any more!
