LS1.9 - Request for Report Tenant Information Case
- Decision Type:
The Licensing and Standards Committee:
1. Requested that the Executive Director, Municipal Licensing and Standards and the City Solicitor report back to the next meeting of Licensing and Standards Committee with regards to the feasibility of posting the results of Toronto by-law compliance orders in a locked case in buildings.
Tenant consultation following the establishment of Toronto’s new Multi Residential Apartment Building (MRAB) audit and enforcement program has revealed that a majority of tenants are unaware of the results of inspections. Whether complaint-generated or through proactive audits, compliance orders are taped up in lobbies following issuance, however they tend to be quickly removed.
The requirement of a locked “Tenant Information Case” would allow inspectors to post the results of audits in a protected casing. As well, individual unit orders could be posted (without the unit being revealed) in such a case. This important information keeps both current and prospective tenants aware of current property standards.
That the Licensing and Standards Committee consider the communication dated January 21, 2011 from Councillor Anthony Perruzza about the Tenant Information Case.
That the Executive Director of Municipal Licensing and Standards and City Solicitor report back to the next meeting of Licensing and Standards Committee with regards to the feasibility of posting the results of Toronto by-law compliance orders in a locked case in buildings.
