How to Respond to Variance Applications

Have you recently recieved a variance application from your landlord to reduce your Rent Reduction?

In December 2009, 130,000 tenants in the City of Toronto received Rent Reductions because their landlord's taxes had gone down.

Now, landlords of over 100 buildings are trying to reduce or eliminate those rent reductions. Many have made a "variance application" trying to claim that municipal waste charges should offset the reduction.

The FMTA disagrees.

A number of organizations have put together a submission that tenants can use to fight these applications.

You can download a copy of this submission here.

Remember, if no one makes a submission to the landlord's application, tenants could lose their rent reduction.

If you want to try and keep your rent reduction:

-Download and print the document "Repsonse to Variance Applications Based on Municipal Waste Charges". Again you can download the submission here.

-Fill out and sign the attached written submission

-Mail of fax it to the Landlord and Tenant Board address on the notice of hearing. If you have not yet recieved a notice of hearing, you should recieve one soon. You can also call and check to see when your notice should be arriving by calling the Landlord and Tenant Board at 416-645-8080.
