I am sorry to hear this.

Do you share a bathroom or kitchen with the landlord?

Customer
Not the landlord with other tenants they rented me the room
Customer
They are not the ones that are telling us to get out its the neighbor downstairs and she is saying the landlord said this to her we haven't heard from the owner of the housr
Customer
our friends / room mates haven't said anything either
Customer
Not a word about us gettingbout

It is not possible to evict you without grounds and without an order.

Evictions are now possible so the COVID emergency measures won't protect you.

But you first need to receive a notice of eviction and then after that when you refuse to go you the landlord would have to apply for an order which you would fight. It will be a long time before the landlord can get a hearing because the back log is very long.

And even if they can get a hearing they have to prove grounds.

Does that help?

Please feel free to post back with any follow-up questions you may have. 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.

Customer

Debra, Expert

No because you are a tenant. You don't share the space with your landlord so you are protected by the Residential Tenancies Act.

Customer
Okay
