Answers To Frequently Asked Questions

A number of financing companies have made it their business to rent certain products such as air conditioners and furnaces to homeowners and to put a lien called a “Notice of Security Interest” on the homeowner’s property.

The difficulty arises when the homeowner tries to renew or refinance their mortgage or to sell their property.

This is usually when the homeowner discovers that in order to sell, renew, or refinance, they need to “buyout” their contract, which can often cost tens of thousands of dollars for a simple furnace or air conditioner.

There are several ways to solve this. First, you can negotiate with the financing company to pay less than they are asking in exchange for them removing their Notice of Security Interest so that you can deal with your property. Second, you can pay them the full amount they are requesting and then sue them to collect your money back.

This second option was employed by Iosef Balagula, a homeowner in Ontario who paid $17,334.09 to buyout a contract for a carbon filter and air conditioner. When Mr. Balagula tried to sell his home, he found out that there were two Notices of Security Interest on his property that he needed to deal with before selling his property. Mr. Balagula then paid the steep fee of $17,334.09 so that he could sell his property.

After the property had been sold, Mr. Balagula then sued the financing company in Small Claims Court to recover the money that he had paid them. He won in Small Claims Court.

The financing company then appealed the decision to the Divisional Court, but the financing company lost the appeal with the Divisional Court ordering that the financing company had to repay Mr. Balagula $17,334.09.

In deciding this case, the judge determined that the term of the contract that provided that Mr. Balagula had to buyout the contract if he sold his property was onerous and had not been brought to Mr. Balagula’s attention as required.

Unfortunately, it is common for door-to-door HVAC salesman to tell homeowners that they will save money because of rebates. Some homeowners have been told that there will be no charge at all for the products. The homeowners are then furious when they see new charges on their Enbridge bill.

At Last A Law Firm With the Expertise You Need

At a Price You Can Afford


Do you want to know a secret about why large law firms in Toronto are so outrageously expensive? Well, for starters, they have massive overhead. Their offices are in the financial district which has the highest commercial rents in the entire province. Do you benefit at all from them having those really nice offices? Nope. Not at all. Lawyers argue their cases at court, not at their offices, so it doesn’t matter whether their offices are in overpriced steel and glass towers downtown or in a nice professional building in North York like us.

We are a young legal team, yet we have more courtroom experience than most lawyers who have been practising for decades. At the end of the day, what matters is the experience and skill that your lawyer brings to the table. What you really need is a lawyer who is as comfortable in the courtroom as they are in their own living room. The only way to get that level of comfort is by going to court. A lot. And that is exactly what you can expect from your Toronto civil litigation lawyer at Powell Litigation.

You’ll be shocked by this. At a recent trial, I was facing off against a lawyer who has literally been practising law since I was born. He did a fine job (although we ended up winning the trial and getting $170,117.84 for our client. You can read the decision here). What was shocking was that this lawyer confided in me that, after decades of practising law, this was his very first trial! Can you imagine that?
