As a result of recent changes to the Residential Tenancies Act, some LTB Interpretation Guidelines have also been changed. Interpretation Guidelines are intended to assist the parties in understanding the LTB’s usual interpretation of the law, to provide guidance to LTB Members and promote consistency in decision-making. However, Guidelines are not binding and a Member may make a different decision depending on the facts of the case.
The following Guidelines have been recently changed:
- Guideline 6: Tenants Rights
- Guideline 10: Procedural Issues Regarding Eviction Applications
- Guideline 12: Eviction for Personal Use, Demolition, Repairs and Conversion
- Guideline 14: Applications for Rent Increases Above the Guideline
