Answer

If your landlord is trying to evict you for owing rent, you can stop the eviction by paying what you owe. You can do this at any time in the process before the Sheriff comes to change your locks.

There is a process the landlord has to follow if they want to evict you because you have not paid rent. Before they can apply to the Landlord and Tenant Board, they usually have to give you a written notice first and time to pay any rent that you owe.

In addition to rent, you might also have to pay extra costs to your landlord to stop the eviction. The amount that you have to pay depends on which steps your landlord takes before you pay.
