Replacing knob and tube wiring with tenants still there.
Has anyone had experience with this, landlord or tenant, and able to shed some light on the situation? I have a certified electrician ready to replace the old knob and tube wiring in a small apt building I own. It will be a messy dusty job for about 10 days per apartment. Anyone able to advise what my obligations are to my tenants? Work will only be done between 8am-5pm everyday, and cleaned up everyday. However there will be holes everywhere, and most tenant items will be pushed, and covered, into the centre of the room. Most tenants seem to be prepared to still live there, after I informed them. Or am I required to pay for alternative accommodation? And/or rent prorated? And what about the tenants with pets? Boarding? BTW, it's in Toronto, in case that's important. I am looking more for legal opinions of my obligations, rather than just personal opinions.
