Landlord and Tenant Board Launches Online Payment for Application Fees

The Landlord and Tenant Board (LTB) is offering landlords and tenants a new and convenient way to pay application fees.

Beginning February 1, 2021, applicants can use a Visa, MasterCard or debit card to pay for most application types online. Applicants who pay online can also file their application by email.

“Ontarians expect to be able to pay for services online, and the Landlord and Tenant Board can now meet that demand,” said Sean Weir, Executive Chair at Tribunals Ontario. “Online payment is a quick, convenient and secure way to pay LTB fees. This new option is one more way the LTB is taking a digital-first approach to services.”

Applicants can still choose to pay their fees by certified cheque or money order, or by including their credit card number on their application form when they send it by fax, mail or courier.

Those who can’t afford the application fee can request a fee waiver if they meet the financial eligibility requirements in the Practice Direction on Fee Waiver.

Tribunals Ontario is committed to providing fair, effective and timely dispute resolution services to the people of Ontario.

Quick Facts:

  • In 2015, the LTB launched e-File, an online service which allows landlords and tenants across Ontario to file and pay for the four most common LTB applications online, anytime from anywhere.
  • Applicants who want to pay online for an L1, L2, T2 or T6 application, must use LTB e-File, unless you are filing a combined L1, L2 application or a combined T2, T6 application. E-Filed applications are discounted by $15 for landlord applications and $5 for tenant applications.
