August 2021 - Money Machine - Evicting a Tenant Part III

August 12, 2021
In the last couple of issues of our newsletter we’ve looked at the process of evicting a tenant because either the current owner/landlord requires the premise for his own use or that of his immediate family, or he is selling the property and is giving notice to the tenant on behalf of the new owner who does. We saw that the process is initiated by serving the tenant with an N12 Eviction form. And we also saw that the process can be enforced in a timely manner by simultaneously submitting an L2 Application with the Board.

August 2021 - Market Overview - Sustained Healthy Market Growth

August 12, 2021
We’ve been tracking the market pretty closely month by month, especially since the brisk run we saw in 2017, the impact of the Government imposed foreign buyers spec. tax and mortgage stress test in the Spring of 2017, then the unprecedented world-wide pandemic commencing in the Spring of 2020. All these have had an impact to be sure. What we want to do, if we can, is try to examine market fluctuations in the light of these events, factoring in normal seasonal changes and see if we can see patterns and trends. The idea is to get an overview as to how the market has responded to date and see if we can get a handle perhaps on where it is going in the future.
