Commercial Landlord Remedies In Ontario

Commercial landlord and tenant relationships are defined by the commercial lease, as well as the Commercial Tenancies Act. Both the lease and the Act typically outline a number of possible remedies that landlords may draw on in the event of tenant default. Each has its own benefits, risks and rules.

The Residential Tenancies Act (the RTA)

The Residential Tenancies Act (the RTA) provides for a wide range of remedies for tenants when a landlord fails to comply with its responsibilities as established by the RTA. For example, landlords have a responsibility to maintain a residential dwelling in a good state of repair. If it is found that a landlord failed to meet this obligation, the tenant may be entitled to an abatement in rent, among other remedies.
