Disputes about lessors’ notices

426 Disputes about lessors’ notices

(1) If a tenant disputes the ground stated in a notice to remedy breach or a notice to leave premises given to the tenant by the lessor under an agreement, the tenant may apply to a tribunal for an order about the notice.
(2) If the tribunal is satisfied the lessor was not entitled to give the notice on the ground stated, it may make an order under this section.
(3) If the tribunal decides the application before the agreement is terminated, it may make any order it considers appropriate.
(4) If the tribunal decides the application after the agreement is terminated because of the lessor’s action, it may make an order requiring the lessor to pay to the tenant an amount it considers appropriate as compensation for any loss or expense incurred by the tenant for having to leave the premises.
(5) This section does not apply to a notice to leave without ground.
