Debra, Expert

Hello and Welcome to JustAnswer. My name is***** will be working on your question today and I am looking forward to our conversation.

Debra, Expert

Please note that I am working from my computer and not actually texting. If you don’t answer back for a while I may not be online when you do but I will never desert you and will check back often. As well, as I am working from home it is possible that I will be interrupted but I will always return back as soon as I can.

Finally, although the site offers a call option I personally do not take calls but just work online. Some find this confusing as it looks like the offer is coming from me but that is just how the site presents the offer and it really isn’t coming from me. Some of the other experts do take calls and so you are very welcome to request a call on this post and an expert may take it. They will have the benefit of reading our exchange which should work out very well for everyone involved!

Customer

Debra, Expert

I know your question is important to you and I will be giving it the time and attention it deserves.

I am sorry to hear of this difficult situation.

No that is not legal.

I suggest you contact the residential tenancy's dispute resolution services to see if they have jurisdiction over this matter. If they do they can order that he pay the bill at once. When you call them tell them it's an urgent matter because your utilities are going to be shut off. Here's a link to their contact information:

https://www.alberta.ca/contact-rtdrs.aspx

Does that help as a starting?

Customer
It was a startup as an license producer in Redwater we made a deal with previous tenants for an 11 thousand sq building in town they said they would give me 100 thousand stock shares and pay me 72 k a year on salary as A master grower Living in the house and growing with my medical license was a bonus in a garage that was built for that purpose. As I was phenohunting strains to bring to the lp with my medical license .
Customer
My landlord the manager of Goodleafinc has refused to pay my salary under contract or give me an ROE
Customer

It sounds like you need your own employment lawyer then.

What you can do to find a lawyer is one of the following things.

You can contact the Law Society and use their Lawyer Referral Service. You will be given the name of a lawyer and can consult with the lawyer and the first half hour will be free.

The number is:

1-***-***-**** or
***-***-**** in Calgary

Or you can check on a site called lexpert. This is a legal directory of leading lawyers and law firms throughout Canada and is well-respected by the legal community.

Here's the link to their website:

http://www.lexpert.ca/directory/find-lawyers-or-law-firms/

Does that help as a starting point?

Customer
All the utilities are in his name under his account and company's name I have paid several 48 hour shut offs and have received a 48 hour power shutoff today for power I called him and he refuses to pay it . What is the best course of action for that ?
Customer
Sorry if its quite complicated as it maybe
img

Debra, Expert

I've already suggested two courses of action. One is to call the residential tenancy's dispute resolution services and the other is to retain a lawyer.

Customer
Do you have a recommended lawyer?
img

Debra, Expert

No but I have suggested a couple ways on how to find a lawyer above.

Ask a lawyer and get your legal questions answered.
