Ideally, you and the rental unit owner check carefully in order to identify the damage before moving in. It is in your best interest to list as much damage as possible to prevent them from being held responsible for the extract. You and the owner must sign and receive a copy of the report. The amount of notice a landlord must give to a tenant depends first of all on the reason for the termination and whether the contract has a regular or temporary term. Landlords must use the prescribed form of the rental by-law for all terminations. The amount of termination a tenant must grant to terminate a tenancy agreement depends on the structure of the contract in months to months or fixed terms. Regular leases require that a full lease period to terminate the lease be known. Tenants with fixed-term agreements are generally required to transfer their contract to another person if they wish to move before the lease expires. There are a few exceptions.

The code allows a person who lives in his or her home and rents part of that house to discriminate against a tenant`s choice. For example, a person who rents a spare room in the house where they live may have a penchant for a tenant of the same sex as they are. A person who rents part of a house that he owns but is not alive, or who has a duplex but does not live in one of the apartments, is prohibited from discrimination and is not covered by this narrow exception.

How about subletting an apartment? The code prohibits discrimination in the case of subletting rental housing. Neither the landlord nor the subleased tenant can discriminate when subletting an apartment. What can a landlord take into account when choosing a tenant? Landlords can protect their rental properties by selecting suitable tenants and refusing unwanted tenants on the basis of non-discriminatory criteria. Donors and donors can verify applicants using application forms, interviews and reference exams based on relevant qualifications. The lessor and the lessor can obtain all information relating to an applicant that is relevant to his or her tenant qualifications until the information is used for discriminatory purposes. For example, a landlord may inquire about an applicant`s source and income to assess the applicant`s ability to pay the rent.
