PostSubject: I need advice!!   Thu 01 Jul 2010, 9:45 pm

So...
My son and I flew to B.C. on tues. Hubby, the dog and the stuff will be here on the weekend.
The house we rented in B.C. was secured June29 when she got a deposit.
We have 20+ emails and my mom viewed the house.
My mom and I met wiht her the afternoon on the 29th to give a few months of cheques, sign the rental agreement, do the walkthrough and I recieved the keys.
The 30th a bed for my son was delivered and was put in his room.
Later that night while I was at my moms for dinner the 'landlady from hell' called to tell me she has changed her mind and I don;t get the house. She is not renting it out. (she is going to hawaii for an undetermined amount of time and has never rented her house before)
I freaked and went to the house, the locks had been changed and the bed is sitting on the covered deck.
I told her that she has broken a contract, unlawfully entered MY place changed the locks etc.
She said I'll give you back the cheques and the $ she recieved 2months ago.
I told her she needs to rent me a storage unit til I can find a place to rent.
She told me I was just trying to scam her
I gave her the keys so she would give me my cheques and $
I went to the RCMP and he was shocked but said it was a civil matter

I want to sue the bitch

What are my chances, where do i go, how di i do it, what can i ask for????

This is in B.C.
i called shaw to cancell the hook up of services on Mon. but she is having her services reinstaded.

HELP Sad

You signed a rental agreement, I'm sure you could get something out of her.

Geezus Berner, I would have fucking killed her on the spot!

Don't know about BC, but NS has a Residential Tenancies Board. I know from hearing my kids talk about their renting experiences in Van. that they (some sort of organization) is much more hands on than here. Of course the damn holiday doesn't help. Check your local government listings for something. If I can get hold of one of the kids I'll see what I can find out......as in who to contact.

Where is the house??

What a bitch,there must be something you can do to get the storage paid for and then I don;t imagine it is easy to find a house there

It's not easy to find a place here and with all the tourists here ist crazy...and I have a berner and B.C. isn;t a pet friendly province when it comes to renting
I have a few viewings set up tomorrow, fingers crossed
I hope I can find something soon cause my hubby and the pooch will be in a day or two and then he has to go back to Ontario on Monday for another month of work

I'm not one to sue somebody, but I would be suing her ass. Most lawyers give a 30 minute free consultation to see if you have a case. After you find a place and if a lawyer states that you have a case, then take her to small claims court as it's cheaper than hiring a lawyer to fight the case for you. Better, check out the link that rottnmom provided you with and speak to someone from there to see if you have a case.

I sent an email to the tenantcy board today cause its a holiday and I'll call tomorrow.
I usually let things go but this is wrong and illegal in sooo many ways.

Keep the emails, and the cheques you made out to her (as that is proof).

Print out doubles of the emails, and make photocopies of the cheques. You can take her to the "tenancy board"

http://www.bclaws.ca/EPLibraries/bclaws_new/document/ID/freeside/00_02078_01#section7

that is the Residential Tenancy Act which it does state

"quoted"

Liability for not complying with this Act or a tenancy agreement
7 (1) If a landlord or tenant does not comply with this Act, the regulations or their tenancy agreement, the non-complying landlord or tenant must compensate the other for damage or loss that results.

(2) A landlord or tenant who claims compensation for damage or loss that results from the other's non-compliance with this Act, the regulations or their tenancy agreement must do whatever is reasonable to minimize the damage or loss.



This website is very useful as well
