Landlord and Tenant Board (LTB) Representation

Civil Litigations offers legal advice and/or representation for both landlords and tenants. However, I specialize in serving the needs of small residential landlords who have properties with less than 10 rental units in single-family dwellings, condominiums, small apartment buildings and rooming houses.

A small landlord often has different goals, values and needs, than a large landlord. Also, many small landlords are not familiar with the Residential Tenancies Act, the Landlord and Tenant Board regulations or the eviction process.

I have helped small landlords with:

Evictions for:

  • Non-payment of rent
  • Persistent late payment of rent
  • Damages to the property
  • Illegal acts/illegal businesses, including Airbnb rentals by tenants
  • Serious impairment of safety
  • Serious interference with the landlord’s or another tenant’s reasonable enjoyment
  • Serious interference with the landlord’s lawful rights and privileges
  • Overcrowding
  • Landlord’s Own Use
  • Purchaser’s Own Use
  • Major repairs, renovations, conversion, demolition
  • Subletting or Assignment of the tenancy without consent
  • Unauthorized person living in the apartment

Defending against: applications brought by their tenants such as:

  • Illegal rent increases or illegal charges
  • Unauthorized entry by the landlord or their agent
  • Harassment by landlord
  • Change of locks by landlord
  • Rebate for reduction in services
  • Eviction made in bad faith for landlord’s own use or purchaser’s own use
  • Eviction made in bad faith for major repairs, renovations, conversion, or demolition

I regularly appear in LTB hearings for properties located in Toronto, York Region (Markham, Unionville, Maple, Vaughan, Richmond Hill, Thornhill), Peel Region (Mississauga, Brampton, Caledon) and Durham Region (Pickering, Ajax, Whitby, Oshawa.)

His knowledge and experience developed over 20 years provides his clients’ with peace of mind that is rare in litigation. His prices are fair, he isn’t fancy or slick; he is efficient and effective, while incredibly detail-oriented and serious. His skills, strength, knowledge and confidence in front of the judge, are exemplary and balanced by his wisdom and passion for justice.

I called over 10 paralegals for my case and after talking to Marshall I really knew he would be the one who will be able to handle my case. I went to his office and I explained to him everything about my case. He was very pleasant to talk to, he was very patient and explained to me in detail everything. After about 2 months my case got closed and I got the result I was hoping for! He lifted a heavy burden off my shoulders. I would definitely recommend him to all my family and friend! He’s very intelligent, patient and his rates are very reasonable! Thanks so much Marshall, you’re the best!
