Option to Renew

Posted on February 8, 2023 | Posted in Commercial Matters, Five Liners

Matiu Dentistry v. Canadiana Towers 2022 Ont SCJ

Tenant attempted to renew the term of the lease in accordance with its terms. Landlord argued that the option existed only if tenant were not in arrears of rent and, because tenant had not paid the amount landlord had claimed for arrears of realty taxes, he was in arrears. The judge held that landlord had not supplied information as required in the lease regarding the taxes and that, therefore, the payment was not in arrears.
