FRPO’s annual Residential Tenancies Act seminars will once again take place this April and May. These half-day events 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. All sessions are presented by legal experts and attendees will be provided seminar materials. These popular seminars will sell out quickly so we do encourage you to register early to guarantee space at your desired location.
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:
- 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
- Increasing revenue despite strict rent controls: rental incentives, unit transfers, in-suite capital work
- Options for addressing parking issues without breaching the RTA
- Restrictions on who can prepare, file and appear on Landlord and Tenant Board proceedings
- E-filing at the Board and strategies for efficient processing of landlord applications
- 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
- 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
- LTB delays: “Justice delayed is justice denied”. What is the backlog status for 2020?
- Recent case law decisions from the LTB 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.
