Can tenants use this tool to file for harassment individually or as a group, what are the pro’s & con’s?
KYR = Know Your Rights
One definitely needs an email to do this then, right?
Can advocates do this on behalf of tenants?
if they dont have emails
got it thanks!
I recommend giving the child’s age. Not the whole date of birth.
I believe the law has changed and harassment applies to buildings with fewer than 2 units. Please look into that. I will too.
Thanks for the note Andrew, will do
What happens if a tenant completes this process but does not show up to court?
If an advocate is trying to assist a tenant fill out the HP papers and they are not in the same location, is there a way for the advocate to have access to the screens that the tenant is viewing?
i think they are doing the firstname.lastname@example.org
They are referring tot hat maybe?
The tenant still needs to serve the papers, correct? And I have seen an OSC in which personal service was required.
In my case it was because the return date was 2 days after the OSC was signed
