"Steps to apply

If a landlord and a tenant have a problem with their tenancy they may be able to resolve it on their own or, they may choose to file an application with the Board.

This section gives you basic information about the different steps in the application process. There are 4 steps in this section:

Step 1: Choosing an Application

This section provides information to help you decide whether you want to file an application with the Board. It also provides a link to the different reasons an application can be filed.

Step 2: Filing an Application

This section provides information about what happens when you file an application with the Board. It also tells you how to let the other person named in the application know that an application has been filed.

Step 3: The Hearing

This section provides information about who should go to the hearing, the different types of hearings, and the possibility of resolving the application through mediation.

Step 4: The Order

The Board’s decision about the application is called an order. This section provides information about the different types of orders that may be issued and when an order may be changed.

Go to Step 1: Choosing an Application
Step 2: Filing an Application
Step 3: The Hearing
Step 4: The Order"


Each of Steps is a link to additional information on the LTB website. This is a new and valuable resource for advocates who work with housing issues.
