Tenant Law

Landlord and tenants are governed by the Residential Tenancies Act, a provincial law. The Residential Tenancies Act sets out the rights and obligations of both landlords and
tenants.

How can we help?

West End Legal Services work in the area of landlord tenant law. We can assist tenants
with a variety of matters, including:

  • Eviction applications*
  • Getting repairs done
  • Harassment issues
  • Matters that fall under the Social Housing Reform Act

*If the only reason the tenant is being evicted is due to rent arrears because they cannot pay the rent, the matter is referred to the Landlord/Tenant Duty Counsel.

To avoid conflict of interest situations, the clinic represents tenants only. However, the clinic does not represent tenants in situations that involve a co-tenant.
