Ontario/Canada. I want to file a small claim against my previous roommate who I met online and with whom I signed a year contract for a two bedroom apartment. After I sublet my room for the last four month of my contract to another tenant, he refused to pay his half of the bills of the last month we were living together. He refused to pay only after I moved out. In addition to another small amount resulted from difference between first and last month rent and our agreement on how much each pay. I can prove he owes me that amount. The claim all together is small ($230) but at this point it is more personal than actually seeking the money.
I'm planing to claim these expenses:
- The amount owed ($230)
- Cost of filing a claim ($95)
- Cost of mailing the claim to plaintiff ($15)
- General expenses ($200) that I will incur (travel expenses, half day vacation from work)
Since I'm new to this, what else can I claim? What of the above I cannot claim?
