Howard, just a quick note to thank you for all your efforts.
We have been landlords for over 10 years and have never had any issues with any of our tenants until this issue arose with one of our tenants.
She was a professional tenant and was fully versed in what she could get away with. She wanted to sue us for everything. We were petrified until we met you.
You told us to relax and made us aware that we had done nothing wrong and were amazing landlords who dealt with things immediately. You coached us through the entire process.
Your knowledge and guidance allowed us to get rid of the tenant quickly and efficiently. I was amazed at how quickly you answered our emails, texts and phone calls.
Never have I met an individual who is as easily accessible as yourself. You went above and beyond your duties to get the results we needed and you removed all anxiety and tension that this tenant placed on us.
Every landlord should know about the great work you do.

I cannot recommend Howard highly enough, with any situation you find yourself in regarding landlord/tenant conflict. On numerous occasions he has come to my rescue. Everytime I have worked with Howard conflicts have been resolved either before or during mediation, saving me the hassle of court and excess stress. He knows how to resolve any issue effectively and efficiently as possible and he is always fair.
Because he is so well versed with the Landlord Tenant Act, he is able to explain not only to you, the landlord, but also to the tenants, why it is in their best interest to settled fairly and fast. He lays out the options and walks you through each possible outcome. I would never deal with a tenant issues without consulting Howard first.
You will save yourself a lot of unnecessary headaches. He has saved me hours of sleepless nights and thousands of dollars by resolving issues effectively and efficiently.
I wanted to take a few minutes to write a small review on Howard and his business.
As the owner of Russell Enterprises a self built renovation and remodeling business I would like to extend my great appreciation for Tavroges Legal. They helped myself and a client with a few different problems related to a rental property and his service and happy attitude is always present no matter the time of day.
I recall on one occasion being a morning person calling him very early with the intention of only getting his voice mail but in fact he answered (while on a walk with his dog) and was able to quickly and diligently answer a question and get me on my way with my business.
Howard has not only become my go to legal support but also has become what I consider a friend. He is always happy to answer a question no matter the simplicity or complexity and if he doesn’t have an answer is quick to do the work to get you one. If your seeking legal advice there is no better place then here with Howard!!
We are very grateful to have met Howard. He was recommended to us and he definitely held true to the wonderful things we heard about him. My husband and I had purchased our first home and had an opportunity to make some extra income with a basement apartment.
Unfortunately, the Landlord /Tenant relationship was not as good as we had thought when our tenant decided to take advantage of us and tried suing us for a large amount of money. Howard took the time to sit and get to know us, as well as get to know our case. He helped us correct our mistakes to make sure that we were well protected. He was honest, professional and reliable. He created a lot of ease in a very stressful situation.
I would definitely use Howard again and highly recommend him for any legal guidance regarding Landlord/Tenant/rental situations.
After hiring what I thought was a reputable firm, to help me evict a problem tenant, I was left hanging by them midway. Howard was kind enough to help me take on the situation. He was instrumental in the successful removal of the tenant in the best possible outcome. He checked in on a regular basis that things were happening as they should and on my personal safety right through to the very end and after. I am truly thankful for his amazing knowledge, kindness and compassion.
We retained Howard to help evict a tenant. He was very professional and helpful throughout the whole process. Howard is amazing and goes above and beyond his job. Always quick to answer questions and reassure us all will turn out well. If you are looking for someone who cares and helps you every step of the way he is definitely the person. I would recommend him to all landlords that need help.
When challenged by a difficult tenant on the closing of the sale of our property, our real estate agent recommended the services of Howard Tavroges to represent our case at the Landlord & Tenancy Board.
Howard was thorough and pleasant to work with in preparing for the hearing and more importantly, very professional and knowledgeable in dealing with the Board to negotiate a favourable settlement.
Retaining the legal services of Howard Tavroges was definitely our best option. We would highly recommend him in providing landlords with expert legal guidance and representation."

We recently had the opportunity to use the services of Howard Tavroges for a Landlord and Tenant matter.
We would highly recommend his services. We found Howard to be very professional, knowledgeable and thorough.
Our matter was taken care of quickly and efficiently.

I contracted Howard to advise me on a difficult Landlord Tenant dispute. He is very professional and his years of experience in this area of the law was paramount to me winning my case. I would highly recommend him for any Landlord Tenant matter.
I needed some guidance on some tenant issues I was experiencing. I was referred to Howard Tavroges. Not only did he give me sound advice, but he helped me understand my rights as a landlord. I would recommend him very highly to any landlord. He is fast, reliable and extremely honest.
Howard was great to deal with. He utilizes his in-depth knowledge of the landlord and tenant rules to his clients advantage. Howard is thorough, quick witted and charismatic. Any query we had I made a quick call and Howard was there. We would use Howard again for legal guidance pertaining to our rental.
I am a solo parent who works and rents out my basement. Unfortunately it has been a rough year for tenants to say the least. Everything from drug use to vaping in my house! While in the process of evicting these tenants, my child and I had to flee our own home! Unfortunately the laws in Ontario do not protect landlords. My daughter and I were homeless "with a home". Yes sounds crazy but true.
The first time I tried to do everything on my own but when it came to it there was apparently a flaw in my application (that I had to wait 30 days for). I could not risk waiting another 30 days to appear in front of the landlord and tenant tribunal again. I resolved it in mediation agreeing to pay the drug using tenant couple to leave. While in the middle of negotiations in the mediation, I was leaving the room, and coming back, etc. Fortunately I met Howard! I told him what was going on and quickly asked him for advice in which he was ever so very kind to offer. He quickly glanced at my application, understood what could have been flawed and confirmed that if not resolved in mediation I would have to start the process all over again (which would obviously take more time).
Therefore when having yet another tenant issue, I had thought of this mystery man who had helped me once before. I called around in my area and another paralegal referred me to this man that specializes in helping landlords. It was Howard! My mystery man who has helped me once before. Howard had the issue resolved within 30 days of contacting the tenant. Howard was not only a wonderful support but has great knowledge, experience and genuinely cares. I recommend Howard anytime there are tenant issues. We may not have the laws for landlords in Ontario but we do have Howard! Thanks again Howard for your professionalism and know-how. I couldn't have done it without you!
On the agenda of a Real Estate Investment meeting in another city was a paralegal, whose focus was supporting landlords. I drove a distance to attend the meeting with healthy anticipation, as I had been fumbling my way through the LTB forms and trying to educate myself on the policies and procedures which are the underlying foundation of my business.
Howard Tavroges is not what I expected! A friendly, grounded individual with a wonderful smile and great sense of humour and better still, an obvious no-nonsense strong moral ethic. He began his talk with horror stories about some of the challenging tenants he has represented in the past. Howard began his paralegal career as counsel FOR tenants!
The time he spent opposite landlords, supporting tenants in front of the LTB has given Howard a unique perspective and was the ideal, fertile grounds for his successful practice supporting landlords.
Howard is a straight-forward, hard working person with exceptional values. His primary focus is fair results for his clients.
Howard always presents himself professionally, honestly, and is trustworthy. He simplifies vital information and procedures in a way that is understandable and builds confidence.
I highly recommend Howard Tavroges’ paralegal services for any landlord who truly believes in a fair result for any landlord-tenant dispute, within the boundaries of the law.
A note of apprecation…and thanks.
I wish to convey my thanks and appreciation for a job well done and arriving at a satisfactory conclusion to my case. I embarked upon the defensive action with some trepidation. From the outset, I was impressed by your manner, immediate grasp of the facts, thorough investigation and the superb advice and guidance I received throughout with your confidence that we would win…that we did!
