As a landlord, do you need to take possession of the Rental Unit for personal use? We can help with all of these situations. At J.A.B. Legal Services, we also assist tenants who are having difficulty with their landlords. Is your landlord not maintaining your rental unit or the rental property?

Residential, Commercial, Industrial and Farmland property is assessed by the Municipal Property Assessment Corporation (MPAC) in Ontario for the purposes of attributing municipal tax valuations. Sometimes, the price of the property is assessed incorrectly resulting in incorrect municipal property taxes. Let J.A.B. Legal Services negotiate with MPAC to reduce your property valuation amount. If negotiations from a reconsideration request are not fruitful, J.A.B. Legal Services can represent you in appealing the MPAC valuation to the Assessment Review Board. Contact us to assist you in reducing your tax liability.
