Terminating property manager's contract

Parvez asks:
(updated on Friday, July 07th 2017)

I have terminated my contract with a property manager as he was dishonest. It has come to my attention that he approached my tenant, told him the rent will increase to a very high amount and asked him to terminate the rental contract. What legal action can I take against him?

Our Experts Answer:

If you feel your property manager has failed to perform his duties under your contract, then the proper venue for hearing your complaint is the Disputes Tribunal. In preparing your application you will need to say what loss he has caused you, if any. Given that you have already terminated the management contract, you will probably need to establish that you have incurred a loss as a result of the property manager’s actions.
