1714959 Ontario Inc v. Goldenshtein 2017 Ont SCJ
Guarantor of the corporate tenant under a lease that had been terminated by the landlord was held to be liable for all damages that the landlord had incurred. The judge noted that once the premises had been re-let, mitigation had taken place and must be accounted for in any damages calculation. The judge assessed damages including arrears, pre-mitigation rental loss, rental shortfall, and the present value of the rental loss from the date of trial to the end of the lease term.
