Tenant and Landlord Dispute

Q:

In case of dispute between tenant and landlord, both of them are Shia . Are the Canadian laws regarding these issues are binding and considered consistent with our fiqh? Thanks

A:
Assalamu alaykum 
 
For your Query I got In touch with the Office of Sayyid Sistani and they said:
“If the dispute is such that can be resolved between themselves then they should do so, otherwise they should abide by the laws of the country they reside in.”
