Question:

I have made repairs to my apartment at my own expense. The lease states that my landlord was to do these repairs but he ignored this, even when I told him. How can I recover the money I have spent?

     If you have exhausted all other efforts, you can make an application against your landlord to recover the money that you spend on the repairs.

    You can choose to either go through the Provincial Court or through the Residential Tenancy Dispute Resolution Service. You can find the forms that you would need to fill out online. When filling out the forms, be sure that you have the correct name for your landlord. You must file the completed form at a provincial courthouse or with the Residential Tenancy Dispute Resolution Service office, and pay the filing fee.

    You must also file a sworn affidavit (statement made under oath). Affidavit forms can be found online as well.

    You must then serve the form and affidavit on your landlord.
