Schedule of Fees and Costs for LTB MattersWork

There are several potential stages involved in the eviction of a tenant.  Below are the various stages and types of work for which you will be charged for a typical Tribunal application terminating a tenancy, as well as other types of applications and fees. 

It is impossible to generalize on fees and costs, as the amount you will be charged will vary depending on the complexity of the application, the amount of research and preparation required, the length of the hearing, the sophistication of the client and number of appearances.  However, you only pay for the services used. 

Notice of arrears and termination, preparation and service by mail or fax
Filing of a certificate of service with the Tribunal
Preparing and filing the application with Tribunal plus service by mail or fax
Represent the landlord at a hearing, if necessary (GTA) which may involve a trial or settlement through the Tribunal mediation service
Tribunal adjournment, attendance at the Tribunal but the case not heard
Filing an eviction order with the Sheriff
Additional preparation for a case, only if needed, for complex accounting preparation, trial prep., interviewing witnesses etc. is charged on a per hour basis
Preparation work for Above Guideline Applications is charged on a per hour basis
Representing the landlord at a hearing for an above guideline application

In addition to fees, the client will be required to pay Board application fees, that for most Landlord applications cost $170.  The largest fee is the Sheriff's fee, charged by the Sheriff to actually enforce the order (writ of possession).  Most times, this fee is not required, as the Tenant moves out as a result of the Board order, but depending on mileage, can be as much as $330..
