Toronto Hydro Landlord Agreement

You may be wondering why you should provide the contact information of the building owner or owner. This is because a new tenant may not move in directly after you if you are a tenant moving from a rented home. In the meantime, before a new tenant moves in, it is the landlord`s or landlord`s responsibility to pay the electricity bills. I waited patiently, but today before work, I checked my mailbox and received mail from Toronto hydro. Inside, there was a “Disconnect Notice” with an account number, the address with my apartment number, today`s date and a backlog of $1396.12. There was no name on the envelope or in the attached letter. If the supply accounts are in the tenant`s name and are late, the lessor is not held responsible. Public services must collect from the person who is in the account. If you are a landlord or property manager, you can submit your billing preferences for tenant service via the Owner/Lease/Property Management Contract form. If you have an agreement where water or other services are included in the rent, then there is no way to change it here. Whether water is provided in a lump sum or dosed, you cannot reduce or remove the service without their permission.

If tenants agree to take responsibility for paying for their own water, you should reduce the rent to compensate (using the average monthly cost of reduced service) for the removal of services that were previously included in the rent. So my question is if these fees come from the previous tenant and I`m in a rental contract in the apartment from May 2012 – May 2013 I`m stuck to pay it? I`d call toronto hydro, but they`re closed. The Super spends a lot of time in the United States and does not respond to texts. She took a few days off, pretty well, so I don`t know when I`ll hear from her. All I know is that if this bill is not paid in ten days, my electricity will be cut off. I`ve never paid for electricity and this is my apartment, so I really don`t know what to do in this situation. Thank you very much. As this is a utility tax, it would not be considered rent and you cannot repay the arrears of the notice of tenancy. In this case, your remedy would be to serve an N5 notice to deal with the behavior and interference with the rights of the owner. Once Bill 184 is proclaimed, landlords can file an application for non-compliance with the incidental fee with the BTA up to one year after the tenant`s departure.

The form is not yet available on the LTB website, but as soon as it is, it will be available tribunalsontario.ca/ltb/forms/. If this tenant has never paid for Hydro, the tenant is not legally obligated to start paying now, unless he agrees. However, if he agrees, you will have to reduce his rent because he would now pay for a service that was previously included in the rent.

It allows property owners and managers to manage electrical service more efficiently for their rental units and help them and their tenants save time and money.
