If a fixed-term lease becomes a monthly lease in the circumstances mentioned above, the lessor is not in a position to compel a tenant to sign another lease or accept it for another limited period. If a lease is renewed, all other terms of the tenancy agreement remain the same except for a rent increase, unless agreed by the landlord and tenant. Short-term leases can be written or oral, but we recommend the use of written leases. Owners and tenants can use our Form 1 — Rental Agreement (Word, 1.5MB). Pet Damage Deposit A landlord who authorizes a tenant to keep a pet in the rental unit may charge the tenant a pet damages deposit for 1/2 month. This deposit is held by the owner until the end of the lease. As of March 1, 2013, rental fees can be increased if the number of people living in the unit increases at any time. If the landlord increases these fees, the tenant may be required to pay more to the deposit for the tenant`s benefits. If a contract is automatically renewed because a lessor does not offer a renewal of the tenancy agreement, the tenant has the right to revoke the renewal contract by providing the lessor with a payment period. A tenant does not have the legal right to modify the castles on the rental unit without the prior consent of the landlord. However, to protect the tenant, the authorization must be made in writing. If the landlord asks the tenant for a key, the tenant must give him one. Tenants have the legal right to award or sublet their fixed-term tenancy agreement.

The landlord has the right to accept the new tenant`s application before it is completed. Owners must have a good reason to refuse a transfer or a request for omission. A lessor may charge the original tenant a one-time administrative fee of up to $75 for the transfer or sublease as compensation for the lessor`s costs related to the liquidation of the transaction. Can homeowners restrict families with children? It runs counter to an owner`s or owner`s human rights code, which is to limit families with children to specific floors or dwellings within a building, such as. B basement dwellings. Landlords who wish to provide a calm environment may include clauses in the rental agreement that address inappropriate noise to tenants, but cannot accept discriminatory standards that are unduly discriminatory on the basis of age (children) or family status (families with children). The appropriate noise of children should not be used as a basis for unfavourable treatment of tenants. What about «Rental» signs and ads? The code prohibits discriminatory signs and statements, as they are included in newspaper or «rental» advertisements.

An example of discriminatory denunciation of housing is one of them that says «No welfare recipients.» Newspapers may refuse to print an ad if it violates the law. When a newspaper or other media organization publishes a discriminatory advertisement, it may also be the subject of a human rights complaint. What are special programs in rentals? An example of a specific housing program is a building for the elderly that has support functions such as level entrances, elevators, physical and recreational facilities and transportation to medical facilities and shops. Specific programmes help individuals or groups overcome the disadvantages of discrimination, which is authorized by the Human Rights Code.
