Closing remarks

It is important to remember that each situation is unique and will be treated on a case-by-case basis depending on the specific circumstances surrounding each dispute.

Resolving any dispute in an amicable fashion is always preferable over initiating legal proceedings at the Rental Board, as this may undermine the relationship between landlord and tenant. However, when all else fails, it then becomes acceptable to seek a resolution of the dispute at the Rental Board.

If you want to make a claim against your landlord, or if you think that your landlord’s claim is without merits, your first reflex should be to call a lawyer who possesses the necessary expertise in order to enforce and protect your rights.
