My landlord won't provide me with a rent receipt and I only paid in cash
I'm renting a room in a house with my girlfriend for now. I don't pay alot of money but I'm thinking it would be nice to get that credit. I'm embarrassed to ask the man who owns the house for a receipt because I've never asked for one before and we've always paid in cash. I checked with the Residential Tenancies Act (Ontario) and our living arrangement is exempt from that act because we share his kitchen. We also share the bathroom. So there is no legal requirement for the owner of the house to provide a receipt and he can't be forced to provide it.
Now I see that I should have paid by cheque. I won't apply for the credit because I won't have the receipt to back it up in case they check later and I don't want to have to pay that money back with interest later.
I've already checked and you have to keep your receipt in case they check your return later.
I like where I am living and I don't want to upset anyone.
