How This Tenant Law Ruling Could Affect You
One of the most significant challenges of the pandemic has been the implementation of social distancing protocols. It’s led to the temporary closure of public spaces, which has inconvenienced tenants and caused financial hurdles for landlords.
The Durham Sports Barn Inc Bankruptcy Proposal, 2020 ONSC 5938 is an important case to look at in that regard. The Ontario Superior Court found in favour of the landlord and that the force Majeure clause does not excuse a tenant from paying their rent during the closure period.
