It is only possible to collect the money owed to you if you have information on the tenant’s new address. It is also important to have their current employment information. Once the tenant has vacated the rental premises and you do not have an order issued by the Landlord and Tenant Board, it becomes a matter within the Small Claims Court jurisdiction. If you do not know their current address, you can hire a skip tracing agency or private investigator to find the tenants and sue them in the Small Claims Court for the money owed.

Since the order is in your tenant’s name, you can only collect from her. You cannot enforce the order again her ex-husband if he was not a tenant named in the order. Further, if this tenant is on social assistance, it is impossible to collect arrears of rent based on an order as social assistance payments cannot be garnished.

Landlords are able to collect an amount owing based on an LTB order by filing the garnishment document with the Small Claims Court against the employer of the tenant or against a bank branch where the tenant has an active account. If the tenant is not employed but receiving social assistance from the government or a pension, you are not able to garnish this money. Another option is to engage the services of a collection agency. Contact the collection agency directly in order to learn more about their collection process.
