Hi:

As a tenant, you have rights under relevant law to enjoy your rental place without disturbance from anybody including the landlord. The landlord also has obligations to provide all the services as promised in the lease agreement. It seems to me that your landlord may have not fulfilled his obligations, and if this is the case, there are procedures under the Residential Tenancies Act could help tenants in your situation.

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,
Caryma Sa'd
