The $67,000 Man says he hasn’t paid rent for 10 years because a Landlord and Tenant Board (LTB) adjudicator said he doesn’t need to as long as “repairs are not done” in his unit.
Galal Donia, 73, said he never denied entry to officials from his landlord apparently wanting to do those repairs – as noted in a TCHC report about him.
Donia said several officials came to inspect his unit 53 times, but never actually did any repairs.
He said he only changed his locks to stop TCHC officials from coming in because they were “harassing” him with endless inspections.
Is Donia justified in withholding paying his rent? Is he playing the system or good on him for understanding the responsibilities of the landlord?
