How to Complain About the Residential Tenancy Branch

You can request a Review of an arbitrator’s decision if you believe there is new evidence that was not available for your hearing; if you were unexpectedly unable to attend the hearing; or if you can show that the decision was obtained by fraud.

You may also request Correction of errors or Clarification of the decision.
