Landlord & Tenant

The Landlord and Tenant Board (LTB) aims to facilitate and resolve issues arising between landlords and tenants. Paralegals can assist in this area of the law by ensuring the paper work is correctly completed and served according to the Rules and Regulations of the LTB. Sometimes, many landlords and tenants go through the renting process without a complete understanding of the rights and obligations of both parties in the lease agreement. This often leads to disputes that end up before the LTB for resolution.

Our services for Landlord and Tenant cases include:

  • Completion of various notices: N4, N5, N7, N8 etc...

  • Completion and filing of applications: L1, L2, T2 etc

  • Process Serving

  • Tribunal Mediation and Hearing Attendance

  • Telephone Hearing

  • Judgment Enforcement

 

Small Claims

The Small Claims Court can handle any action for the payment of money or the recovery of possession of personal property where the amount claimed does not exceed $25,000, excluding interest and costs such as court fees. This includes the value of all goods that the plaintiff is asking for in total, no matter how many defendants there are.

 

Record Suspensions

There are many people who have made mistakes and poor choices which result in them having to overcome a criminal record when they attempt to find employment, housing or access to countries outside Canada. Obtaining a Record Suspension provides an avenue for these people to clear their record and avail themselves of more positive opportunities in their lives. In March 2012, the Canadian Government, through the Parole Board of Canada, changed the name of the application from Pardons to Record Suspensions. Along with the name, the eligibility to apply has also changed. The following are the eligibility changes:

  • A person who has been convicted of a Schedule 1 Offence (serious offences involving children) is not eligible to apply. 

  • If a person has been convicted of more than 3 indictable offences, and to those convictions were incarcerated for a term of 2 or more years, they cannot get those charges suspended.

 

Process Serving

Process Serving is a service which entails serving defendants and other parties to an action with documentation in accordance with the rules of Ontario courts and tribunals. Process service is available in the Waterloo Region and the surrounding 150 km area. Service to further locations is available at negotiated rates.

Skip Tracing

Skip tracing is a term used to describe the process of locating an individual. “Skip” refers to the person being searched for and “tracing” refers to the act of locating the skip. Skip tracing is performed by collecting information on the individual to be located. That information is analyzed, verified and used to determine the location of the individual. Some common methods used by Skip Tracers may include social media, local informants, public records and observation of locations where the Skip may have been recently seen.
