Episode 64 - Dealing With Your Tenants with Howard Tavroges

Gary welcomed Howard Tavroges, a paralegal who has represented both tenants and landlords at the Ontario Tenant Review board, but now exclusively represents landlords.

Tenants are not paying rent, banding together for support. Since these are difficult times, Gary picked Howard’s brain about the legality of this current situation, and how landlords should proceed. Landlords aren’t powerless, however there must be a process followed to ensure a happy and legal outcome.
