THE DECISION AND ORDER
Any order from an arbitrator is legally binding. This means that both you and your landlord are required by law to comply with the order. According to section 77 of the Residential Tenancy Act, arbitrators are required to reach a decision within 30 days. For hearings about eviction notices and other urgent matters, arbitrators will usually make their decision within a few days.
No precedent: Arbitrator’s decisions do not set legal precedent. This means that the arbitrator who hears your case is not required to make the same decision as other arbitrators who have heard similar cases in the past. You may hear stories of other tenants who disputed an issue similar to yours, but received a different decision.
