<p>The Landlord and Tenant
Board (LTB) has now posted updated forms to its website: the forms are
necessary following the enactment of Bill 184.&nbsp; IT is highly recommended
that landlords using forms for termination, etc. use the current
“prescribed: forms because using outdated forms places you at risk of
having your follow up application dismissed.&nbsp; The new forms are effective
immediately and can be accessed by going to the LTB’s website or at this <a href=”http://r20.rs6.net/tn.jsp?f=001XXAb8-kt9iYXF_up7Exp3CZRkw3cK-89on-sdNChh69ni7GOuLyUnK-B5XdmiGoRLqpyxulO-jLJFNiWgFtgq5vI3SX1JRJ-Ht9N2XqO7dAQbSBnlYjX7bxyyxDLZtb6mue8W7s9dLTQX_N48_bgJWA5T4-knUfcMY38Q0Ac3TZ-1kBtTqt3-3lnrFvOpPHPs84-W8YkHEkOv6R_M9QFjw==&amp;c=6Th6dIaKWF7NhuFGBEbL0xLQOR0-nWSajH34jPSX_xRIezIHEtpNEw==&amp;ch=zw22N6LW0BatlfGlpQERcWBcUFlqS86-e_cKhD0Yf8ozgvYSb8dnzA==” target=”_blank” rel=”noreferrer noopener”>link</a>.&nbsp;</p>
