Alternatively, you can take legal action against the landlord by:
- Applying to the Court of Queen’s Bench for an order that the landlord live up to their obligation and make the property available (this is called an Order for Specific Performance of the contract).
- Pursuing a claim for damages for the landlord’s breach of the agreement.
- Pursuing a claim for special damages that arise as a result of the landlord’s actions. You would have to prove that the landlord could have reasonably known that you would suffer damages for not making the property available.
If you are considering taking legal action against your landlord, you may want to contact a lawyer to receive more information and advice on how to proceed. Here is some information on where to find help.
