#365 An App For Landlords To Blacklist Tenants
The Landlord Credit Bureau lets landlords review their tenants and report their payment habits.
The information is shared with other landlords, and it can damage a tenant’s credit rating.
But is that legal?
In the midst of the pandemic, Hamilton resident Joey Nicol and her partner found they’d been signed up for the Landlord Credit Bureau by their landlord. Fearing eviction, they started to investigate.
Jesse speaks with Nicol about her family’s experience. Then he talks to MPP Jessica Bell, housing critic for the Ontario NDP, and to privacy lawyer David Fraser.
