This scheme applies in cases where the tenancy agreement is still in effect: a landlord can enter the tenancy at any time with the tenant`s consent. Consent may be given orally or in writing. If the landlord has the tenant`s consent, no notification is required. If a tenant commits a substantial breach of the tenancy agreement, the lessor can ask the RTDRS or the court to terminate the lease or give the tenant at least 14 days` notice. The date on which the notification is issued and the day of departure cannot be included within 14 days, so the total announcement required is 16 days. A tenant or landlord who has a dispute related to a termination, unpaid rent/utility, a surety, damages, repairs or other general disagreements may use the service. The tenant or landlord can contact the Residential Tenancy Dispute Resolution Service (RTDRS). Landlords can only increase the rent a tenant must pay under a temporary or periodic tenancy agreement after having spent at least one year (365 days) since the last rent increase or since the beginning of the tenancy. The necessary notifications must be sent in person or by recommended letter. Tenants must use the postal address in the “lessor`s message.” Homeowners must use the postal address of the dwellings. Before a tenant moves in, the tenant and landlord must accept the terms and conditions of the tenancy in a contract called a rental or rental agreement. If the rental premises are not ready for the tenant at the beginning of the lease, the tenant can inform the landlord that he does not wish to pursue the tenancy agreement or can ask the Court of Queen`s Bench for the landlord to apply for the lease.

The tenant can also sue the landlord through the rental service (RTDRS) or a court for damages if the rental premises are not ready on time. A tenant who sublet or sublets the rental premises may be responsible for the balance of the tenancy agreement or may not be responsible for it, and may opt for legal advice. Landlords and tenants must complete both a registration and a moving inspection report. This report describes the status of rental premises when a tenant moves in and again and again when they move. The RTA defines specific responsibilities for landlords and tenants. Even if these responsibilities are not included in the tenancy agreement, landlords and tenants must meet the legal requirements. If the tenant and landlord are unable to agree on a dispute, one of them can contact an information officer at the consumer centre. This agreement can be written or oral, but in writing is always better, as it provides evidence, there should be a problem.
