There are hundreds of real estate pundits and gurus who preach the gospel of making a million dollars in a year through real estate.

Even if it was true (which it never is), none of them, without exception, tell you the DARK SIDE of being a residential rental property landlord in Ontario, whether you operate a second suite in a single family home, a condo or an apartment building ... especially in Ontario, Canada, one of the most regulated real estate geographies in the world and brutally anti-landlord.

Did you know there are more than 45 potential breaches of the Residential Tenancies Act (RTA) of which 34 uniquely benefit the tenant to the detriment of the landlord. Only ONE uniquely benefits the landlord.    

It's true that the rewards can be tremendous; 15 to 20 times return on every net operating income dollar you add ... BUT ... if you don't know the laws that affect residential tenancy, sooner or later you're guaranteed to become a victim of it. 

You can be seriously financially and legally hurt because of the Human Rights Code, Charter of Rights and Freedoms, municipal by-laws, Municipal Act, Fire Code, Electrical Code, Building Code, zoning, improper insurance coverage, property taxes, fast-rising interest rates, and more.

Do you know how to increase equity in your property in creative, substantive ways to stay ahead of decreasing property value as interest rates rise?


     'Landlording' in Ontario is a no-nonsense, no-fluff, practical course based on real-world experiences, and supported by powerful, personally developed analytical and property management tools.    

A common theme among the many testimonials at the bottom of this page ...
You don't know what you don't know

"I can almost guarantee that if you don't know Ontario residential tenancy law
you will become a victim of it." -
Chris Seepe

  • "I just wanted to extend my appreciation on both the content and your real-life delivery on this course. I have been in the Real Estate industry for over 20 years and as a Broker of Record for about 10 years. I always tell new and seasoned agents that you never stop learning in life, and this course is a perfect example. Two thumbs up and money well spent." -- Gianfranco Locantore, Broker of Record, Vaughan, ON (February 19, 2017)


  • "This is an excellent quantitative and qualitative look at residential multi-unit landlording in Ontario. Chris is the rare example of an agent with great analytical skills who has actually invested in properties and lived with the challenges of these businesses. His Property Purchase Analysis spreadsheet is very complete, and can also be used to study other asset classes like plazas, single family homes, offices, and industrial buildings. Chris has a nice relaxed presentation style and I enjoyed my time in class." -- Thomas Bollum, Commercial Broker, Toronto, ON (January 31, 2017).


  • "One single class was worth the price of admission. My expectations were exceeded by the end of the first class.  Before then, I didn’t even know, what I didn’t know!  Chris’s book “Landlording in Ontario” has become my bible for multi-family real estate investing.  Chris’s course and book provided the knowledge to help me make an informed decision and the confidence to proceed down the multi-family investing path.  Thank you Chris! " -- Paul Vella, Property Owner, Toronto, ON (July 07, 2017).


  • "As a Real Estate investor with over 20 properties I was not sure if I could learn anything from this course. However, I was so wrong. Right from the beginning this course was loaded with insightful information on landlording and what it actually means to be a landlord (cons vs pros). The course lays the foundation for making real estate investing a long term wealth-creation strategy and, no, it does not provide a magic formula for any get-rich-quick scheme. It was great to have a course done by a Canadian real estate investor like Chris who has hands-on experience and knows what he is talking about. Chris was funny, energetic and knowledgable, providing helpful insights on the [real estate] industry and landlording.  I participated in many courses and meet-ups before [taking Chris's course] but none of them ever went into such depth in analyzing numbers, markets, potential issues with tenants, and so on. I highly recommend this course to anyone who is serious about their future [in becoming a residential landlord] and want to invest in real estate with knowledge (as opposed to just gambling by buying properties for appreciation). Even if you decide not to invest in real estate after what you have learnt, it would be the best investment of your money to avoid making a mistake and investing in a property that could lose money and the consequent terrible stress." -- Alex Pomeransky, Property Owner, Richmond Hill, ON (May 13, 2017)


  • "Chris Seepe's class should be prerequisite learning for anyone considering multiresidential real estate investment in Ontario. The classes were well-paced, well-taught and full of valuable information and knowledge. The handouts are some of the most analytical and thorough tools I've ever seen. They helped me tremendously in my purchase of an apartment building in Ontario. I recommend this course 100%! " -- Jing Wang, Property Owner, Richmond Hill, ON (April 14, 2018)


  • "I’m not exaggerating when I say you are an incredible breath of fresh air when it comes to property managers. You have a skill set in this sandbox that is almost unprecedented in my 10+ years investing. Any time you want  a referral, please feel free to pass along my name." -- Tyler Pearson, Property Owner, Markham, ON (July 21, 2016)


  • "This course is a real eye opener for a new investor on foresighted challenges that I would have never expected. Thank you for the energy put into answering every question and ensuring the student [that the answer] was understood.  Keep up the great work, Chris." -- John Altinian, Property Owner, Aurora, ON (April 22, 2018)


  • "If anyone would like to know the what, when, who,where,why and how to become a landlord and perform as a landlord,this course is a must, with complete guidelines for those seeking help. The contents are normally NOT found in the conventional documents or available in books but can only be learnt from this Guru of Landlording." -- Rashed Butt, Realtor, Mississauga, ON (June 12, 2016)


  • "Being fairly new in this industry, this intense course has taught me what to watch for in purchase agreements, creative ways to get financing, and safe guards to not over extend yourself. Getting the right tenants can make or break you.  Chris's lease and creative [tenant selection] ideas weed out bad prospects. I was also able to learn from fellow classmates and their experiences as well as networking.   I feel I am ready to go to the next level after taking this course." -- Greta Vandyk, Property Owner, Port Perr, ON (June 16, 2016)


  • "Knowing Chris before the course I knew this would be a good learning expeirence and went for it despite knowing that I will not be able to attend all classes. Not a disappointment, even if I do not get to catch up on missed Saturdays, I have gained many insights on being a better landlord myself.

1. The course is very comprehensive, with attention to every detail.

2. The spreadsheet for analysis and managing a property by itself makes the course worthwhile, but it is greatly enhanced by explanations and hands-on scenarios discussed in class

3. Getting to ask questions and listening to others' questions answered was also great

4. Learning different and much more practical approaches to common issues

5. Being in a like-minded environment and being given the chance to network


This is a much better course than what you can learn in any school or similar institution!" -- Calin Alexandrescu, Property Owner, King City, ON (June 24, 2016)


  • "This is an excellent course for any landlords-to-be, commercial and residential real estate practitioners, and anyone with money to invest in real estate.  The topics discussed are in-depth, relevant, and covers all the 'what if' scenarios a landlord, property manager, or real estate agent may encounter when dealing with a tenant and an investment property. When it comes to sharing his personal experiences in his landlording career, Chris doesn't hold back. His anecdotes are memorable and smart, and could really save you money, and perhaps your skin too.  I thoroughly enjoyed the course: great content, experienced and candid instructor, enlightening group discussions, & spreadsheets!" -- William Cheng, Realtor, Markham, ON (June 24, 2016)


  • "Through the 'Landlording' in Ontario Course, Chris teaches all aspects of the multi-unit residential real estate investment lifecycle, ranging from property analysis and acquisition to the management of the property.  Chris's teaching style of 'telling it like it is' without the sugar-coat would be appreciated by those who genuinely seek to learn.  Compiled through years of practical landlording experience, the unique lessons are delivered in language that is easy to understand by everyone.  Every question, simple or complex, is answered in detail.  Whether you are a beginner or an experienced real estate investor, this course is highly recommended and a worthwhile investment." -- Emilio Fong, Investor, Toronto, ON (June 24, 2016)


  • "Great overview – as someone who came in to this with essentially no ... experience (but lots of questions), I found the course extremely helpful " -- Ronny Zhang, Property Owner Courtice, ON (August 08, 2016)


  • "If you are considering purchasing a multi-residential property in Ontario this course is a must. Chris takes you through all of the aspects of the business, from procuring and screening tenants to the financial aspects of the business. His background in real estate and practical experience, dealing with his own investment properties provides you with insight that you will not receive from any other source." -- Peter Hanebury, Property Owner, Pickering, ON (October 21, 2016)


  • "Chris Seepe is full of useful information. The attention to detail is impressive, and he delivers the information with a hint of humour, which is always refreshing and keeps the class fun and entertaining. It's well worth the investment." -- Joe Bianchi, Realtor, Peel, ON (October 22, 2016)


  • "Thank you, Chris, for this course and for offering me the opportunity to take it. In the past, I have taken several other property management courses. This course is by far the best " -- Nicholas Z, Realtor, Toronto, ON (October 23, 2016)


  • "Chris you did a fantastic job at opening my eyes to the rewards and challenges of Landlording in Ontario. The course was fun. Content delivered with energy and a great sense of humor...or lack thereof...LOL...I think all Landlords in this province should be taking your course. Thanks for taking the time to share your knowledge and your experience. It was an amazing 6 x Saturdays that I [will] not forget. Time well spent! Keep me posted on part 2 of Landlording course and your book release!" -- Jacqué Turnbull, Mortgage Broker & Property Owner, Toronto, ON (October 27, 2016).


  • "The Landlording course was an eye opener for me. Not only did I learn more about how to be a 'viable' landlord in this pro-tenant environment, but also how to evaluate and the RIGHT way to invest in multi-residential real estate ... just like an old wise man from the old ages said, "Gold clingeth to the protection of the cautious owner who invests it under the advice of men wise in its handling". (Taken from the book, "The richest man in Babylon.") I implore anyone wanting to invest in commercial and multi-res RE to take this course before spending a dime. Chris is knowledgeable, shares real life experiences and has the portfolio to back it up." -- Lloyd Nyasvimbo, Property Owner, Ajax, ON (October 28, 2016).


  • "Chris is generous sharing his experience, processes and templates for investing and property management.  A truly worthwhile investment.  The knowledge you gain will repay your investment of time and money many times over." -- Helen Ehlers, Property Owner, Ajax, ON (October 28, 2016).


  • "Chris taught, and shared with us, his  knowledge, wisdom and experience in investing in multiresidental properties. Nobody in Ontario is teaching a step by step course like him. He walks the talk from start to finish. I highly recommend anybody interested in investing in real estate to take this course and benefit from him. What you will learn from this course is priceless. Thanks Chris for teaching this course. I wish you all the best." -- Konesh Arunasalam, Realtor, Brampton, ON (November 12, 2016).


  • "I appreciate everything you've taught me. After being in the multi residential business for more than twenty years. You've taught me to never stop learning. Thank you for sharing knowledge. It will definitely make me more successful." -- Steven Butera, Property Owner, Niagara Falls, ON (February 20, 2017).


  • "Thank you for everything you have taught me and thank you sharing your experience. As a real estate agent who started this business less then 2 years ago, you have equipped me with the right knowledge and tools to be an asset for my clients. Everything you shared with us was relevant and useful. I was a bit hesitant when I signed up for your course but it was the best decision I have made so far for my business and personal growth." -- Majid Lodhi, Realtor, Markham, ON (February 21, 2017).


  • "Chris, thanks so much for the courses ... the knowledge obtained will be invaluable and very useful ... I know you care to do the best for others and yourself in the Landlording business." -- Ian Gifford, Property Owner, Toronto, ON (February 21, 2017).


  • "Chris has managed to consolidate and share in six weeks a knowledge base about landlording that has taken him years to learn.  That knowledge has come about by his actual hands-on-experience combined with his technical knowledge and expertise.  The course has given us many tools that will prove to be invaluable for anyone looking at becoming a landlord or currently feeling the growing pains with a purchase they may have made.  The course takes you through all the key stages: preliminary pre-purchase analysis, analysis of expenses, gathering and storing key information and properly using the information to control the expenses and future income earning stream of an investment property. Chris, you delivered the information with real life experiences, and your wacky sense of humour added to the learning experience [and] made it a fun time for all of us.  I highly recommend the two courses to any newbie or existing landlord wanting to learn the necessities of properly managing and operating a multiplex building. ... I know I speak for many others in our class: we wholeheartedly thank you for your generosity in sharing your wealth of knowledge.  Job well done ... not to mention ... your Landlording book is excellent.  Thank you for the great experience." -- Irene Kay, Realtor & Property Owner, Oshawa, ON (May 25, 2017). 


  • "The classes are very educational & informative. Your sharing of real landlording experiences has made this course invaluable and memorable. Analysis of multiunits in the current and past markets by running them through [your] property analysis spreadsheet plus the interactive nature of the class made the training very unique. What really stood out for me was your easy-to-approach personality coupled with your willingness to be open and uninhibited in sharing your systems, expense statements, balance sheets, [and] vendors. Learning from your firsthand experiences in sourcing, qualifying, negotiating and acquiring multiunits along with your penchant for details and thorough due diligence [was] the prized take-away for me. I certainly find myself better now than I was before taking the class. Thank you for the wonderful training ..." -- Srini Rao, Realtor & Property Owner, Toronto, ON (December 09, 2017). 


  • "Chris I just wanted to take this opportunity to thank you for having the opportunity to take your landlording course. I found the course very detailed with all the information you need to properly be an effective landlord. I really loved the fact that you provided us a detailed summary of each class, this allowed me to focus on your content as apposed to trying to take notes. As a realtor, I feel very confident to apply your information personally and to help my clients with any of their investment opportunities and tenant dealings. Overall I was really dialed in for every class and really learned a great deal. I look forward to reading your book which will give me much more details then the 38 hours of class time. Chris I would definitely recommned anybody considering to be a landlord to take your course. " -- Marco Cecatini, Realtor & Property Owner, Toronto, ON (December 28, 2017).


  • "Thank you for putting so much into your course. All business considerations aside, you are truly generous with your information and experience - the content depth illustrates this perfectly. Already I am applying some of the points you raised and look forward to implementing many more. The model you present in your course is a really good approach.  For beginners, the learning curve is steep.  But challenging and fun. I certainly will advise anyone who could benefit from the program to attend. " -- Gordon Campbell, Property Owner, Oakville, ON (December 09, 2017). 


  • "Thank you very much for [the] very interesting and useful course. It provided a lot of information [that] I didn’t’ realise I was missing. I appreciate the detail and practical real life examples. Thank you for being an inspiration. " -- Alexandra Cahill, Realtor, Toronto, ON (December 17, 2017).


  • "I enjoyed these classes with likeminded people; great networking and new skills are now under my belt. Highly recommended . " -- Monique Marleau, Property Owner, Toronto, ON (December 14, 2017).


  • "Thank you very much for conducting this course. I thoroughly enjoyed every bit of it and I believe this course is truly worth a lot more than what I paid for it. I'm not sure if I would have figured out so much all on my own. So thank you for making [landlording] seem doable and [for] sharing your experiences. I quite liked how you structured different sets of information for every class. I believe everyone who wishes to buy multi-family apartment buildings and run [them] should certainly take your class. ​I highly recommend this program to anyone who is unsure if they should get into this type of an investment and also anyone who has multiple years of experience running such multi-family buildings. I'm sure they will learn things that they had no idea about. The most value-add I felt [I received] was to understand the type of buildings to go after, analyzing the financials, questions to assess a property, Chris' financial model (next to none in the industry), access to all the trades people you need for your business, understanding how to bring in efficiencies when a building is purchased, staying organized, and running a successful business to name a few. I'd be more than happy to answer any questions anyone may have about this course. I can be reached at 647-839-0381. Good luck!!" -- Priya Ramanathan, Realtor, Mississauga, ON (February 18, 2018). 


  • "Having read Chris Seepe''s book and participated in his course, I developed more confidence with analyzing properties. He explains the research and skill set needed in buying multi-residential properties. You will learn what to look for in hidden value and potential landmines. His information will improve your decision-making abilities in your pursuit of income-producing properties. I highly recommend both his book and course for anyone who wants to learn more about investing in real estate and landlording in Ontario. It will provide you with stronger fundamentals in this business, whether you are already a professional or just starting out." -- Patrick O'Connor, Property Owner, Toronto, ON (February 28, 2018).


  • Your article about ROI was the best I have ever read. You got it! Many investors fail to see the entire picture. As an investor/private lender/builder, I look at all aspects of the property. I especially look at the area. If it is on the outskirts of a build-up area. Sometimes you have to take a lower rent until the area builds up and the population increases. Anyway, well done." -- Fred Rankel, Real Estate Investor, Toronto, ON (March 09, 2018).


  • "These two courses far exceeded my already high expectations. Chris provided a wealth of practical resources, information and anecdotes which combined to produce a fascinating overview of landlording and residential commercial real estate issues. For someone who is easily bored, I was never at any time less than fully present throughout every day of class. Chris is a good presenter, sometimes humourous, with a good command of the classroom, and always well informed. It will take quite a while to work through all the information and resources he provided, which means his course will have a lasting impact on my landlording aspirations for a very long time to come. " -- Devorah Garland, Aspiring Real Estate Investor, Toronto, ON (April 27, 2018).


  • "I recently attended Chris Seepe’s landlord course and I was thoroughly educated as well as entertained. Chris has a wealth of knowledge and he enthusiastically shared it with everyone attending. I can honestly say without a doubt that it was well worth my time and money. I currently do not own an investment property but now I feel much more confident and plan to purchase my first in the next year." -- Ernie Guidoccio, Realtor, Toronto, ON (May 10, 2018).


  • "I just wanted to send you a quick "thank you" for the first useful ... article in REM [Real Estate Magazine] to literally nip the "Cannabis Legalization Issue" in the bud! There have been other articles that have skirted the issue, but you've been the first to combine it's legalization with the LTA and renters ... I appreciate the time you took to share your opinion in REM.  Your article truly is a fantastic one." -- Craig Watson, Property Owner, Burlington, ON (September 10, 2018).
