Hello and Welcome to JustAnswer. My name is***** will be working on your question today and I am looking forward to our conversation.
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!
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.
What does the lease say about outside furniture?
That is not correct and you are not covered by the Residential Tenancies Act but even if you were that doesn't give you the right to have outdoor furniture.
You don't have that right unless your tenancy agreement provides it.
But it sounds like you agreement (even though it was verbal it is still a binding contract) did say you can have this furniture.
At the same time they can evict you as you are not covered by the Act.
So really you are stuck is seems and perhaps you should be looking for another accommodation that allows you to live more freely.
Does that make sense?
I understand no. When you said outside furniture you meant furniture brought into the unit from outside the unit. I am sorry.
They still can say that you have to obey their rules or they will evict you.
Well if your support workers are saying something different I am sure they are right. This must be an exception based on what you just told me.
If they are right then you can put whatever furniture you want in your home, they owe you a duty to keep the home in a state of good repair and they cannot evict you. without grounds.
I suggest that tomorrow morning you call the Residential Tenancies Branch and explain the living situation and ask if you are covered by the Act. Here is their contact information:
Then come back and tell me what they say.
So make the call tomorrow morning and then come back right to this post.
I am going to bed now but I will here after you make the call.
You are very welcome!
This all sounds like excellent progress.
No. It is not their business!
Tell them that you have spoken with the landlord and tenant board and a lawyer twice and you now are fully apprised of your rights and you will not be harassed or treated this way any further and that what you do with your time and your plans and your family are not their business since you will not be damaging the unit and you will be paying the rent.
I am not able to help you with the forms. They can't kick you out with a
