Remembrance Day at Royal Canadian Legion #101

On November 11th, 2018 I attended the Remembrance Day service at Royal Canadian Legion #101.

The service was moving as usual and a way of remembering those who sacrificed their lives for the freedoms we enjoy today.

Here are some pictures from the service and at the Long Branch Cenotaph:

    Our condo rules state that an owner who rents can be charged $250/month as an ongoing non-refundable type of security deposit. Our renting owner disputes this purporting without citation an Ontario Supreme Court decision..

    Our condo corp has already suffered the costs of repairing damages imposed by renters on common elements. This rule is intended as insurance against such costs (i.e. why should the condo Corp pay for damages incurred by a landlord’s tenant?), as well as to dissuade owners from renting.

    I read that Alberta limits the amount of such insurance to a lump sum of one month’s rent. I have been unable to find where we stand in Ontario law. Can you help?

      No I do not believe the condominium can do this. What would normally occur is that any costs like this would be charged back to the owner of the unit. But check with the condominium’s lawyer if you are on the Board of Directors. If necessary, the Board could sit down with owners who rent out their units to discuss the issues the condominium had around tenants and that the owners are responsible for any damage their tenants incur.
