Less than a month after launching its e-File tool, the LTB has received its 1,000th application online. Since launching on July 13, the LTB has received 194 (29 % of) tenant applications and 844 ( 16% of) landlord applications by e-File.
The e-File tool guides users through a series of steps, and then generates an application. Landlords and tenants can also pay their fees online and schedule the first available hearing date.
Four common application types can be e-filed – two for landlords and two for tenants, which together account for 80% of all applications received at the LTB.
Paper applications can still be mailed, faxed or dropped off at one of the eight LTB offices or personally delivered to more than 60 ServiceOntario locations across the province.
The two applications that tenants can file online are:
- T2: Application about Tenant Rights
- T6: Tenant Application about Maintenance
The two applications that landlords can file online are:
- L1: Application to Evict a Tenant for Non-payment of Rent and to Collect Rent the Tenant Owes
- L2: Application to End a Tenancy and Evict a Tenant
The LTB receives more than 80,000 applications a year.
