For Landlords, the current emergency order to temporarily pause the enforcement of residential evictions is just another hit in a long list of delays and setbacks causing financial hardship and stress. The LTB delays are at record timelines. Tenants are living rent free in properties while landlords are struggling to make mortgage payments on income properties with no income. This is a very frustrating time to be a real estate investor. So how do we deal? Well, the good news is that the LTB is still plodding along as best as they can with limited staff and resources. This means that hearings are still taking place. This means that yes, you should absolutely serve that N4 and file that L1 and get yourself in the queue to be heard. Chances are, if you file today, by the time you get to your hearing date, 5-6 months from now, the eviction ban will be lifted and your order will be enforced in due time. What Landlords should NOT do, is delay. If your tenant is in arrears, ACT NOW. Get in that queue, I know it seems hopeless but there will be light at the end of this tunnel. I am happy to guide you through this process to ensure that you do get results.. eventually.
