Toronto Star Recommends Ontario Landlords Association Membership – Join A Group Such As the Ontario Landlords Association and do credit checks for $10 per check and use their supporting tools to assist you
New Ontario landlords continue to write in telling us how happy they are to get true information about the challenges of being a small landlord and our tips and advice on how to choose good tenants and avoid renting to bad tenants.
A Hamilton landlord wrote in:
“Thanks for sharing the story of that Peterborough landlord who got ripped off by that bad tenant who trashed his property.
I own rentals in Hamilton and the scary thing is the damages his ex-tenant did are nothing compared to what I face here. It’s time for a damage deposit in Ontario!
By paying a damage deposits tenants will have some ‘skin in the game’ and show more respect for rental properties and landlords.”
We received the following from a Toronto landlord who is thinking of selling his rental properties:
These stories keep me up at night. Whether it’s naughty Nina taking her landlords to the LTB or reading about renters who damage properties it’s frustrating and maybe time to sell!
We even had an Alberta landlord emailed us:
“I feel for you guys and gals. Things aren’t perfect here but at least landlords stand a fighting chance if you are professional. Why not look to Alberta to buy your rentals? Edmonton is growing fast.”
How Can Landlords Avoid Professional Tenants From Hell?
There was a terrific article in the Toronto Star in the summer which gave advice on how Ontario landlords can take steps to avoid renting to bad tenants.
Experienced landlords appreciated the advice and new landlords should read it and learn about how the Ontario Landlord and Tenant Board works and why you need to make sure you rent to good tenants.
One of the points in the Toronto Star article is how the Toronto Star recommends Ontario Landlords Association Membership.
The article says:
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.
This is great advice.
