Hello,

I recently moved to Canada so I'm unaware of the rental rules. My landlord currently doesn't share their kitchen which I was aware
of but I rented the place since I needed one urgently. I'm paying monthly utilities but now they have told me I'm only allowed to do my laundry on either Saturday or Sunday and on a certain time which like 4-8. And they said I can only use the washing machine once meaning I can only load as many as I can only once. What if I spill something over or need to wash something in emergency and they lock the room where the machine is placed. I've confronted them about this but they say this is normal everywhere. Is it though? Please let me know.

Thanks.
