Review the Residential Tenancy Act

      Angela Cunningham

      Prince George, Canada

 We need to change the laws in BC, so this beautiful province does not loose more tax money and investors, yet again to Alberta.I am starting this petition as I know it is important to have decent housing and landlords in BC. We need a review of the RTA as it unfairly favors the Tenant;  a tenant who grows marijuana on your rental property will not be evicted unless you proove damages. The RTB does not consider it to be a danger to health and saftey or how a grow op seriously jeopardizes lawful right or interest of the Landlord. To get a hearing takes to long (a month to two months). This petition will spur  a review of the laws and proceedings of the RTB

To:
Province of British Columbia Legislature, Honorable Mike Morris MLA Prince George - Mackenzie
Review the Residential Tenancy Act and how the Residential Tenancy Branch operates

Sincerely,
[Your name]

      If someone doesn't pay their rent, they need to go, VERY SIMPLE - trust the government to make it a long drawn out complicated process

      It shouldn't be THAT complicated to evict someone who hasn't paid their rent, WAY too much government paperwork, that is ridiculous

      the landlords have to much power. my mom and 8 ear old sister were kicked out because a landlord lied and they couldn't prove other wise. no I don't agree with this. if there are no damages then what they do in the privacy of they're home is they're business! and it's they're home if they are renting it!

      It took me almost 3 months to get a tenant out for not paying rent. Now I'm stuck with further expenses to clean, paint and replace flooring. Amazing that they can away with this and most certainly will go on and do it again. Where are the consequences ? Is this not criminal activity ? Seems like theft to me.

      I think law is in favour of tenants regardless who is on doing wrong. Being a home inspector I always hear stories how tenant cause problem to owners and there is no one where they can complain. Tenancy act always favour tenants. It need to be changed.
