Wednesday May 1, 2019 – We e-transferred the rent to Jennifer Greenway and received separate receipts. In early afternoon, Agostino knocked on the door and again asked that we pay the rent to John. He also handed Marie a Notice of Entry for May 3, 2019 (Doc 280.4).
Friday May 3, 2019 – Agostino and Roy entered the apartment and worked on the bedroom ceiling. Marie stayed home, I went to work. There were no incidents.
Saturday May 4, 2019 – Agostino delivered a Notice of Entry for May 6, 2019 (Doc 280.5).
Monday May 6, 2019 – Agostino and Roy entered the apartment and worked on the bedroom ceiling. Marie stayed home, I went to work. There were no incidents.
Tuesday May 7, 2019 – A Notice of Entry was delivered (Doc 280.6) for May 9, 2019.
Thursday May 9, 2019 – Agostino and Roy entered the apartment and worked on the bedroom ceiling. Marie stayed home, I went to work. There were no incidents. Agostino told Marie there would be another entry to paint the drywall that had been repaired. Marie asked Agostino to leave it as is, he agreed.
Friday May 24, 2019 – Jeremy’s friends were working on the vehicle in the driveway almost every weekend, being loud and vulgar. I made a noise complaint to bylaw in the third week of May, which resulted in this (Doc 284.5). Jeremy’s recognizance forbade him from being on the 99 side of the property. Around this time Marie was served with a summons (for me) to attend criminal court to answer a private information laid by Richard Pollington charging me with uttering threats and criminal harassment (Doc 284).
Thursday May 30, 2019 – Agostino was back with a request to pay the rent to him. His explanation was that “John wants it that way.” John was ignoring yet another LTB order. I’m not sure he was (technically) doing anything wrong. The order didn’t specify that he couldn’t ask, but the whole point of using a third party was to avoid contact between us and our landlord’s crew. Marie told Agostino no, and tried to explain that Greenway no longer representing John did not affect the way we would be paying rent.
So we withheld the rent. The only way to get a hearing, it seems, is to interrupt the flow of rent money. Instead of complicating the mess the first time around on John’s L1 (by introducing quite a number of older and new issues under Section 82), we’d just agreed to have a third party (Greenway) collect the rent until the joined applications were heard.
Also in May 2019, we received a copy of the hearing notice for SOL-01323-19 (Doc 285), John’s L2 application that had been adjourned on March 29, 2019 so John could find another paralegal. The hearing date was June 7, 2019.
Throughout May, the name calling continued almost every time I approached or left the building. I did not record specifics for most of those incidents, but it was beginning to get very annoying. Jeremy Stamper and his mother Christina would often raise their middle finger to me as well. It all sounds petty, but it was constant.
Marie and I both continued searching for other accommodations, but with no luck.
