Question & AnswerCan I be evicted if my landlord wants to move in?
5. Give other reasons why the Board should not evict you
Even if the (LTB) agrees that your landlord, their family member, or their caregiver wants to move into your place in good faith, the LTB does not have to you.
In some cases, the LTB must let you stay. For example, the LTB can refuse to evict you if they find that your landlord:
- has seriously failed to follow the law or the agreement, or
- is trying to evict you because you did something to protect your legal rights or because you have children.
The LTB can also give you more time to move out or even refuse to evict you at all because of your personal situation. For example, the LTB can delay or refuse your eviction if:
- you have a mental or physical
- you're a single parent
- you have cultural connections to your neighbourhood
- you'll have a hard time finding an affordable place to live
At your hearing, make sure to tell the LTB member everything that you want them to think about when deciding whether to evict you.
