Hello there!

I manage a property in Kingston and we recently upgraded the security on the building as there was a shooting, thankfully no one was injured. My question is, I have a tenant whos guests constantly block this door open which allows people to come into the building and hang out, smoke drugs, loiter etc. I have served notices to the tenants and am currently awaiting our hearing date at the LTB...what can I do in the meantime to prevent her guests from doing this and putting the security of the building at risk? Can I call police?

Hello There,

Thank you for sharing your situation and question with us. We can understand that you would be concerned about this situation.

If it is not an emergency, you may want to call municipality service numbers usually listed on municipality websites or the non-emergency police number.

You may also want to contact the Landlord's Self Help Centre for some advice regarding your situation. The Landlord's Self-Help Centre is a non-profit specialty community legal clinic funded by Legal Aid Ontario and mandated to provide support exclusively to Ontario's small landlord community.
