Once the court has issued the application and returned it to you (the landlord), the next step is to give it to the tenant. This is called service. You must serve the Notice of Application and the Affidavit in Support of Landlord's Application on each tenant.
Under the Residential Tenancies Act, the landlord must serve the tenant with a Notice of Application at least 3 clear days before the application date.
Who lets the tenant know about the application and how much notice do I have to give the tenant?
