I live in a duplex, my suite doesn't have a thermostat.

Heat is supposed to be included in my rent but I have been asking my neighbor (who has an imaginary grudge against me) to be reasonable duh, she's insisting it's still too warm to turn the heat on.

It's on but it's still freezing. So I ask the landlord for a solution, he's upset because it's never been an issue before.

He wants to make her pay for my thermostat (obviously illegal), but before I can strong arm him into actually booking the installation I have to make sure that I'm legally entitled to a thermostat.

My rational is my neighbor shouldn't have anything to do with my heat.

I'm Manitoban btw.

We don't have a forum, so any advice you can give me would be so appreciated.

Thanks

Hello,

Thank you for sharing your situation and question with us.

We can appreciate that you would be very concerned about this situation.

As you know, the Settlement.Org website is mainly for those settling in and living in the province of Ontario.

Therefore, we may not have a great deal of information regarding Manitoba.

However, you may want to contact the nearest Residential Tenancies Branch Office for some information and advice.

I hope this information is helpful. Please let us know if you have further questions and if there is any follow up to your question/situation.
