Hello - My name is ***** ***** I'm happy to assist you today. I am an Ontario lawyer who is able to answer tenancy law questions.

To clarify - You want to take back your rental unit for your parents but your tenants also owe you rent - is that correct ?

Customer
Thanks for your reply! Yes, that is correct.

Hi - Yes, you can give your tenant both the N12 and and N4 and you should do this because you cannot use the L2, which is the follow up application to the Ontario Landlord and Tenant Board for the N12 ( Own Use) to also ask for rental arrears. You would need to file a L1 application to follow up on with N4 to ask the Board to order the arrears to be paid but you cannot file an L1 without first giving your tenant an N4 and you cannot file an L2 without first giving your tenant a N12.

Does this clarify things ?

Customer
It does, thanks a lot! Is there any obligation to send N4 first? Or it doesn't matter which process I can start with.

You are very welcome.

You can give your tenant both N notices at the same time because there is no conflict with respect to notice periods between the two.

Customer
Awesome, thanks a lot Joanne!
