Some areas of practice include:

Late payment of rent

Late payment of rent – if a tenant fails to pay rent before or on the due date, the landlord will have right to issue a notice with regards to end of tenancydue to non-payment. This can happen anytime, even before the tenure comes to a closure.

Landlord re-occupying property

A landlord can re-occupy and/or sell the property however; certain protocol must be adhered to. There are certain rules and regulations in place to ensure that the rights of the landlord and tenant are protected.

Tenant vacating

When a tenant decides to move, they must provide a written notice to the landlord. Under majority of circumstances, the notice provided to the landlord must be at least 60 days before the last day of the rental period, or their lease.

Maintenance and repair

A landlord must maintain the unit in a good condition. It is also the responsibility of the landlord that repairs are done in a reasonable and timely fashion. Tenants should keep the unit clean and tidy within acceptable standards.

Rent increases

If the landlord is looking to increase the rent, certain conditions must be followed, and proper notice should be given.

Lease agreements

It is imperative that the landlords and tenants have a very detailed tenancy agreement which covers all aspects of the lease. All tenancy agreements issued on or post April 30, 2018, should be in written format using the form for standard lease developed by the Ministry of Housing.
