The LTB is releasing updated versions of forms, notices and the accompanying instructions. The majority of the updates are formatting changes to make the forms more accessible and readable, and to update the website address for the SJTO and LTB websites. A number of the changes were made as a result of suggestions by the general public and LTB Members and staff.
The updated forms will be available on the website on November 30, 2015. We encourage you to use the new forms immediately, for those using the older versions, as of May 1, 2016 only the new forms will be accepted.
Also effective November 30, we will be implementing a streamlined process for incomplete e-Filed applications.
e-File allows clients to file applications online and to submit any mandatory prescribed documents, such as notices of termination, or Certificates of Service, either online at the time of filing, or no later than 5 days after the filing date. If an applicant does not submit the prescribed documents by the deadline, the application is considered incomplete and the Landlord and Tenant Board (LTB) will dispose of it without holding a hearing.
e-File already includes multiple notices advising users of the deadline and that the application will not be considered complete and accepted for hearing unless this is done.
