Tenants and Land Owners responsibilities
The Landlords are required to give notice to each new Tenant of their property who is required to pay all or part of the taxes on the property.
The Landlord is to supply Tenant’s names (see Declaration of Tenancy Form) and contact information for the HDTC-BIA’s records to be maintained on file by the HDTC-BIA office for notifications of upcoming events/meetings. It is the responsibility of the HDTC-BIA office to update changes from the current tenants as information is required to be updated. Landlords cannot choose who can receive updates, all pertinent information will be distributed as needed unless the tenant themselves do not wish to be notified.
Any property owner who pays commercial property taxes would be liable to pay a HDTC-BIA levy or any tenant who is required under their lease to pay all or part of the taxes on the commercial property may object to the proposed By-law by filing written notice of the objection with the Clerk of the municipality.
