Victory for Tenants at 16 St. Joseph Street

In a major victory for tenants at 16 St. Joseph St, the Landlord and Tenant Board recently dismissed the landlord’s application for an Above Guideline Rent Increase. This unparalleled achievement was made possible through the tireless efforts of the tenants at 16 St. Joseph, with support from the FMTA. The 16 St. Joseph St Tenants Association is a member tenant association of the FMTA.

 

The order dismissing the application noted that on a balance of probabilities, the expenditures incurred by the landlord did not appear to be needed and nor did they meet the test for eligibility criteria. This represents a significant  savings for tenants: the tenants avoided a 9% rent increase!
