Services for Landlords and Tenants
Whether you are a landlord or a tenant, we can help you navigate the complex system of rights and responsibilities that come with a residential tenancy agreement. Without experience and background in representing clients before the Landlord and Tenant Board, the Residential Tenancies Act can look like a maze of complexities. At Prevail Paralegal Services, we are passionate about providing quality legal services to landlords and tenants who need help understanding their rights and obligations in disputes with their lease counterpart.
Whether you’re a tenant facing eviction, or a landlord who is owed rent arrears, Prevail Paralegal Services can help you assert your rights. We take your case seriously, filing and arguing your case before Ontario’s Landlord and Tenant Board.
We often hear stories of landlords who advanced their own case to the Landlord and Tenant Board after months of rent arrears, just to discover simple errors in their application that prove fatal to their case. By the time they re-file with corrections, more months go by before they are granted a hearing. At Prevail Paralegal, we take care in completing your application right the first time.
If you want thorough, affordable and tenacious legal services, look no further.
