FRPO is pleased to announce that we will be holding our popular Residential Tenancies Act Refresher seminars once again this April. These seminars provide valuable information to site staff, property managers, leasing consultants, small landlords and senior management to help keep you up to date on the RTA. With hundreds of regulations contained within the RTA, it can often be difficult for those working in the rental housing industry to keep up with the changes. This event will help to ensure you and your teams are aware of changes, legal outcomes and other best practices to assist in your day to day operations.  They are presented by expert lawyers specializing in the field of landlord-tenant law in a half day format with updated materials each year.The seminars will take place throughout the month of April with events in Toronto, Kingston, Ottawa, London and Sudbury. This year’s topics include:
