LEGISLATION IMPACT ON MULTI-RES ASSETS

The introduction of Bill 184 by the Ontario government attempts to somewhat neutralize power between landlord and tenant. For example, previously, a landlord was required to give notice and compensate a tenant when a renovation of the occupied rental unit was planned and the tenant was required to vacate. However, this only applied to rental buildings with 5 or more units. The new legislation now changes this to all buildings with 1 rental unit or greater. Many investors count on being able to renovate, increase value, and re-finance in an effort to pull money out of their money and re-invest in more property. As I have said numerous times over the past several months, there are so many moving parts at the moment that making predictions is not much more then speculation. As an appraiser I will be watching the occurrences in the market and how Bill 184 impacts supply/demand and more particularly the availability of capital and its effective cost going forward.
