About this web site

This website is sponsored by the Association of Orchard House Lessees, which can be read about on the page Association (link opens a new browser tab).

The website advocates for provincial law to give all B.C. long-term residential lessees basic tenant protections, including the right to disclosure about the spending of their money and some limit on suite-fee and capital-expense billings. A summary of needed regulation can be found on the page We need protection by statute (opens new browser tab).

WWW.OrchardHouseLeaseholder.ca also provides in-house information for the building’s lessees, for prospective lessees and even renters, and is a platform for my comments, which are mine alone and cannot be attributed to the Association, which leaves editorial control with me. Please let me know of any error of fact, which I will gladly correct.

If you’re an O.H. lessee not yet receiving our occasional social invitation and the informative emails regarding legal or political developments, use this site’s Contact page to provide your name and suite number, and please mention whether you’re resident or rent your suite to others.

I initiated the website in October of 2017, when I looked like in the pic below.
