RTA Amendments Require the Attention of Legal Advisors

December 2017

The article at the link below was written by Joe Hoffer at the request of Lawyers’
Professional Indemnity Company (LAWPRO), a wholly Canadian owned insurance
company that provides professional errors and omissions insurance to more than
26,000 members of the Law Society of Ontario.

Joe specializes in Residential Tenancies and the purpose of the article is to give
lawyers and legal advisors notice of some of the major changes brought as a
result of Ontario’s Rental Fairness Act and to highlight the risks for small landlords
who operate, buy and sell rental properties in Ontario. The full text of the article
highlighting some of the major changes can be found at the following link:
