It's Time To End The Exploitive "2018" Rent Rule Change

#1 Unread post by Forum Renter » November 22nd, 2022, 10:14 am

Horrific policy making by Ford and his corporate cronies!

Kim Tanaszczuk watches as her daughter helps pack her belongings in the one-bedroom apartment she calls home in Russell, Ont.

She hasn't been here long — Tanaszczuk moved into the seniors building in August 2021 — but said she needs to move out because she can no longer afford to pay the rent.

Rent increases are normal and expected, though they're usually subject to rent control guidelines. Landlords are permitted to raise rents by 2.5 per cent in 2023, a limit set by the province of Ontario.

But Tanaszczuk and other tenants were shocked when they received a notice earlier this year that their expected monthly payments would jump, in some cases by 25 per cent, and even more disturbed to learn it was perfectly legal.

A change introduced by the province in 2018 exempted new rental units first occupied after Nov. 15 of that year from rent control.
