Landlord and Tenant Board

HPPC will represent you or your company with the highest degree of professionalism before the Landlord and Tenant Board.

Whether an application is brought by a landlord or a tenant, it is the Landlord and Tenant Board which deals their residential matters at hand.  The rights and obligations of both the landlord and tenant are stipulated in the Residential Tenancies Act.  This act allows for both sides to be treated fairly and equally in their roles as a Landlord or a Tenant before the Board.  Parties to a dispute have the opportunity to mediate the matter before the actual hearing takes place.  If the parties choose not to mediate or they cannot come to an agreement, an adjudicator rules on the matter in dispute.
