Knowledge is power!


Were you given a Form N12: Your landlord requires your unit, or a Form N13: Landlord wants to demolish, repair or convert your
unit? Have you been told to move because your landlord wants to renovate your unit?

DON'T SIGN ANYTHING!!! Call 211 first.

DO ASK to see work permits for renovation and repairs: is it necessary for you to move out? Are the proposed repairs
``cosmetic"? YOU CAN APPEAL THIS through the Landlord Tenant Board, with legal advice.

COMMOM EVICTION TACTICS used by landlords: not addressing disrepair; not resolving infestations; issuing `'bogus" eviction notices/harassment.

BEST COURSE OF ACTION: Keep written record of the dates of every request or encounter with Landlord. Organize with
the other tenants in your building, you're likely not the only one, decide on a course of action.
