Media Release-235 Rebecca Street

For Immediate Release

The Hamilton Community Legal Clinic has become aware that tenants of 235 Rebecca Street are receiving notices to vacate their apartments by January 20, 2016.

These notices DO NOT comply with notice requirements spelled out in the Residential Tenancies Act.

This means that tenants do not have to vacate their units as they have been told in a notice from Medallion Corporation. The notice is entitled “URGENT FLOOD REPAIR UPDATE FOR FLOORS 1-6, 235 REBECCA STREET.”

The clinic recommends that any tenant from 235 Rebecca Street speak with our clinic before signing any paperwork with the landlord.

Tenants are encouraged to attend a Public Legal Information Session scheduled for Tuesday January 19th. The Know Your Rights session will be held at the Beasley Community Centre located at 145 Wilson (Corner of Ferguson) starting at 7:00 p.m.
