Two important changes are being made to processes at the Landlord and Tenant Board:

  • Our forms will be updated on April 1.
  • The LTB will start serving the notice of hearing on July 1.

Updated forms starting April 1
LTB forms will soon be easier to understand and fill out. You will be able to preview the updated forms on our website starting March 1 but please don’t start using the new forms until April 1, 2015.

LTB to start serving the notice of hearing starting July 1
Beginning July 1, 2015, the LTB will start serving the notice of hearing and the application to both the applicant and the respondent. Currently, the applicant serves these documents to the respondent. This new process will be more streamlined:

In most cases, applicants will no longer have to serve the notice of hearing or submit a certificate of service.

  • The board will no longer send a letter to respondents confirming the information in the notice of hearing, so a step will be removed from the process.
  • Until July 1, applicants should continue to serve the notice of hearing and file a certificate of service.

The rule governing these new procedures will be posted for consultation in early spring.
