I can only answer in a general way without seeing the actual documents that you have signed. The nature of the documents is important— an N11 form (termination agreement) or was it in a mediation agreement? Or if you attended the landlord and tenant commission, the extent of your liability was likely determined by the board in the order. Too many questions to give you a definitive answer. One thing I can certainly tell you is that collection companies often make claims for payment when there is absolutely no legal basis for that request. In fact, they convince you that you owe money when you don`t. If your lease has been terminated through a board process (order or negotiated contract), your landlord`s continued request to pay the rent in the months following the termination of the lease is highly suspicious. And I intend to use the excuse of turning the space for my own use so that it doesn`t upset the tenant. On our lease (we signed them both), each party must terminate 60 days in advance to end the term. However, says the RTA, if the owner wants to turn to a fixed duration of self-use, must wait up to 1 year ends.in this case, what are we going with? Our lease or the law? Your advice is very much appreciated! Angie Hi: To answer what you`re asking, I should see this “lease” signed. . . .
