Small Claims Court
The Small Claims Court, a division of the Superior Court of Justice, was created to help people resolve their minor disputes concerning money and personal property. On January 1st, 2020 the limit for Small Claims Court was increased from $25,000 to $35,000, allowing individuals and businesses to proceed with more claims, in a simple and inexpensive way. In Ontario, licensed paralegals are authorised to provide representation in all matters falling within the jurisdiction of the Small Claims Court.
AVB Paralegal Services can advocate on your behalf in Small Claims Court regarding your legal matters. We are experienced in matters relating to contract disputes, employment law (i.e. wrongful dismissal), unpaid invoices/accounts, construction/contractor disputes, damage to property and many other issues. Typically, we charge flat fees that are lower than lawyers’, which will help reduce your legal expenses.
Landlord and Tenant Board
Residential tenancy disputes are dealt with by an Administrative Tribunal called the Landlord and Tenant Board. Disputes between parties are decoded by hearings which are very much like trials, and decisions are made by Adjudicators similar to those made by Judges. AVB Paralegal Services is authorized to act as your legal representatives at the Board.
A Landlord may file an application at the Landlord and Tenant Board for non-payment of rent, late rent payment, damages, illegal acts, breach of quiet enjoyment and/or harassment, and pursue eviction. A Tenant may file an application about Tenant Rights, Maintenance, for a Rent Reduction, etc.
Whether you are a landlord or a tenant you need an experienced licensed paralegal to be able to properly assess and present the law and facts to the Landlord and Tenant Board. You need an expert on your side.
