A search warrant with an invalid date is invalid and not binding. Any charges laid on the basis of such a search will have to be dropped. 

Feel free to get in touch if you would like to discuss further. Our practice areas include criminal, human rights laws and landlord and tenant board issues. You can call and text me at 647-360-7182. 

Yours very truly,
