Ontario Landlords – There’s a must read story in the Toronto Star That Recommends You Join the Ontario Landlords Association to Avoid Bad Tenants
Ontario landlords are facing lots of challenges including a low allowable rent increase of only 1.6% in 2015.
This has one Toronto landlord fed up and even thinking of selling his income property because the government won’t let him keep up with the real inflationary costs of being a landlord in Toronto.
We also have the challenges of bad tenants out there.
For example, Tenant From Hell Nina Willis is now fighting her Scarborough landlord at the Landlord and Tenant Board to continue to live in the property rent free for months longer.
How Ontario Landlords Can Avoid Bad Tenants?
There’s a terrific article in the Toronto Star that should be essential reading for Ontario landlords.
While stating the fact that most long term tenants are good tenants, the article says there are also “professional tenants” out there who want to rip off the landlord.
The article says the secret for success is to do serious research on potential tenants so you don’t rent to a Tenant From Hell.
One of the most important tips is:
Join a group such as the Ontario Landlords Association where after becoming a member, you can do a credit check for as low as $10, and use their supporting materials to assist you.
Ontario Landlords Association
This is great advice because the Ontario Landlords Association is a deal of a life time for Ontario landlords.
It was created by a small group of Ontario landlords who came together with common goals:
To help educate landlords on the rules and procedures in Ontario
2. Residential Tenancies Act
To show how unbalanced the Ontario Residential Tenancies Act is
3. Landlord and Tenant Board
To put a spotlight on how the Landlord and Tenant Board is biased against landlords and actually helps bad tenants rip off good landlords
To allow landlords from across the province to share their stories, problems and provide tips to each other.
5. Services To Help Landlords at an Affordable Price
Whether it’s terrific documents or premium Ontario Landlord credit checks, or discounts on insurance, the Ontario Landlords Association knows what landlords want and worked hard to provide what Ontario landlords wanted (and need!)
Ontario Landlords Association Review
The Ontario Landlords Association grew fast and quickly gained media attention. Thousands of landlords across the province were happy to pay a low one-time fee to join.
Of course, there were also some trolls who attempted to defame the organization.
None of the trolls were landlords themselves.
Some were failed landlords who didn’t want others to succeed where they failed.
Others were non-landlords who profited greatly from the problems that landlords face and didn’t want their ‘gravy train’ to end.
A third group were people who wanted to create a similar group in an attempt to make profits from small landlords struggling to succeed.
In the end, real value wins every time and the Ontario Landlords is growing faster than ever helping Ontario landlords in every corner of the province and recognized and appreciated by Premier Kathleen Wynne when she was Minister of Housing!
