Re: safety & security of other tenants. What rules refer to the untoward use of intimidation of one tenant towards

Expert's Assistant chat
Customer: Re: safety & security of other tenants
JA: Because laws vary from place to place, can you tell me what state the property is in?
Customer: what rules refer to the untoward use of intimidation of one tenant towards another.
JA: What are the terms of the lease? Any issues related to maintenance or upkeep?
Customer: there is no lease. Loud noisy parties at late hours knowing other tenants need to be up early for work.
JA: Anything else you want the Lawyer to know before I connect you?
Customer: A lot of threatening behaviours.

Your landlord is required to give you peace full enjoyment of your home. This tenant is denying you of that right. That means that your landlord has to take all necessary steps to stop this threatening behaviour and just stop this disturbing behaviour.

You, and any other tenants should be sending letters to the landlord making your demands in writing. If that doesn't work your next best step would be to take the landlord to the residential tenancy's office for an order requiring the landlord to provide you with peaceful enjoyment of your home and Providing you with the rent abatement.

Here is a link to the residential tenancy branch's contact information. I suggest you speak to them on Monday:

Does that help?

If you don't have any then I hope I have earned a 5 star rating but if you don't feel that I have please don't hesitate to reply back and let me know what more I can do to assist you. Finally, please know that even after you rate me I will be here for you and you can ask follow-up questions if you think of them later on at no further charge of course.

I am the landlord. The new, upstairs tenants have 2 young children 4 & 8yr olds& a large dog. Kids have not gone to school since moving in March 1st secondary to COVID. A trampoline has been purchased for outside entertainment & a bark collar has been purchased for dog who currently has not been trained. Downstairs retaliate by endless profanity texting then playing music at ear deafening loudness enough to scare the children, then party loudly late to annoy upstairs whose husband works very early schedules. Given last instructions not to have notices after 11pm. Also, feuding over shared laundry, therefore given specific days & within specific times, not before 10:00 & totally finished by 7pm.

Well that is awful.

But if one is disturbing the other they should be evicted. You have to decide who is the one that should be evicted.

Customer
Thanks for 'this info. I have food for thought. And a position to present.
