COVID-19 Is Testing Real Estate Markets Locally, Nationally and Globally. The Multi-Family Market Continues To Show Exceptional Strength And Resilience Today And Into Tomorrow
Year over Year, the Canadian Apartment Investment Conference brings together owners, managers, developers, investors and lenders to provide valuable insights into the multi-unit residential market. Last year’s conference attracted over 900 executives face to face that were interested in learning about major trends, issues, opportunities, and strategies in Canada’s multi-unit residential market.
The 2020 Canadian Apartment Investment Conference program will continue to bring together the industry as the need for market knowledge and networking are as important today as they were in 2019. 2020 will see a virtual conference being offered over two days providing the greatest possible value to owners, managers, developers, investors and lenders.
Exceptional opportunities for networking will be available throughout this year’s conference in our virtual space and attendance at the Canadian Apartment Investment Conference may also qualify for various continuing education credits.
The Canadian Apartment Investment Conference is organized by the producers of The Real Estate Forums, in conjunction with a steering committee of apartment owners, lenders, brokers, and valuators. We hope you will take advantage of this very informative event.
Date and Time: Sep 23, 2020 10:00am to Oct 8, 2020 12:00pm
We are pleased to announce the rescheduled dates for our annual Residential Tenancies Act seminars. These events will take place in two parts and in a virtual format to ensure the health and safety of our attendees. We have revised the seminar materials to include several COVID-19 related topics as well as an update on the LTB and Bill 184. All sessions are presented by legal experts and will highlight a variety of important items to assist our members in navigating the RTA as well as providing best practices and an overview of recent case law decisions. Attendees will be provided electronic seminar materials in advance of their session.
Complying with the RTA In A Time of Industry Innovation and Change
This year’s seminar will focus on the impact of innovations in building operations, tenant services, and office administration on day to day property management and, in particular, the challenges of making changes while attempting to comply with regulatory restrictions imposed by the RTA. The RTA imposes regulatory controls on energy conservation initiatives (water and electricity sub-metering); on energy conserving changes to heating and AC systems; on innovative changes to building “services and facilities”; and, on management of on-site infill development and massive building upgrades while continuing tenant service delivery. As always, the seminar will also provide important updates on legislation and the processing of applications at the Landlord and Tenant Board (LTB). Presenters will highlight the changes which have occurred at the LTB over the past year as well as a review of recent case law.
What will be covered:
Section 1 – Regulatory Restrictions Affecting Building Operations
- Highlights of recent changes to the RTA and their impact on operations
- Implementation of “Fees and Charges” By-laws and mitigating financial risk
- The impact of municipal intrusion into Multi-res operations
- Regulations and LTB decisions which discourage capital improvements
- Managing capital projects to avoid financial and legal risk
- Electricity and Water Sub-metering: the challenges of conservation initiatives in existing portfolios
- Delivering new tenant services in compliance with the RTA
- Removing, improving, or changing obsolete tenant services in compliance with the RTA including closure or modification of amenities due to COVID-19
- Increasing revenue despite strict rent controls: rental incentives, unit transfers, in-suite capital work
- Options for addressing parking issues without breaching the RTA
Section 2 – Processing LTB Applications and Ongoing Legislative Changes
- “Justice delayed is justice denied” – Update on the current status and backlogs at the LTB, time delays and any new procedures
- Bill 184: New Remedies for Landlords: Settlements, Arrears Recovery, New Limitation Periods, Expanding the Scope of “Damages”
- Restrictions on who can prepare, file and appear on LTB proceedings
- E-filing at the Board and strategies for efficient processing
- Bill 184 changes impacting tenant applications: strategies for defending and the pitfalls of failing to properly defend
- AGI’s: What leverage do you have to secure the quickest result? What strategies will help get a final order?
- Dealing with tenant conduct issues and landlord liability for failing to address disputes between tenants including issues related to COVID-19
- Use of video to reduce landlord liability
- Smoking Restrictions: how’s that working out for you?
- Human Rights Issues and proving you have “accommodated” the tenant’s needs
Section 3 – Case Law Update
- Recent case law decisions from the Landlord Tenant Board and Divisional Courts
These events are ideal for site staff, leasing agents, property managers, owners and senior management. If you are a supplier member and wish to learn more about the legislation that governs residential tenancies, we encourage you to attend as well.
