Landlord revises legal form for displaced Parliament Street apartment residents

Residents of the fire-damaged apartment tower on Parliament Street were granted access to the building to collect their belongings for a second day in a row on Tuesday, after the property manager revised a legal waiver that angered many the day before.

The new waiver is a simpler document that’s easier to understand, said David Eisenstadt, a representative for the property management company at 650 Parliament.

“The objective is to get the tenants in as quickly as possible, and have them get their most important belongings,” said Eisenstadt.

Around 1,500 people were forced out of the St. James Town highrise last week after an electrical fire sent thick plumes of smoke pouring out of multiple apartments. Tenants were told last week it may take several months before they can return to their apartments.

According to Toronto fire services, the building is still without electricity and has yet to be deemed safe, but the property management is making an exception to allow people to go in to collect possessions they left behind. 

Several tenants were upset on Monday that the landlord demanded they sign a legal form before entering the building. If signed, the document would prevent residents from suing the management company if they were injured while inside the building.
