If you’re a tenant and want to move before the end of the lease, there are two ways you can avoid paying rent until the end of the lease.    What is the difference between subletting and assigning a lease? You can assign your lease if you decide to leave your rental unit permanently during the course of the lease. You transfer your lease to someone else and have no further responsibilities as a...

As of April 30, 2018, landlords of residential rental property in Ontario will be obligated to use a new government-issued standard lease template (the “Standard Lease”) for all new residential leases. Requirements relating to the Standard Lease are contained in new Section 12.1 of the Residential Tenancies Act, 2006 (the “RTA”) and related regulations.

The landlord's obligations are defined by the terms and conditions contained in the lease and the laws specific to where the property is located. The most important obligations of the landlord include providing the tenant access to the property and allowing the tenant peaceful enjoyment of the property. The legal owner of the property also has obligations to maintain the property to minimum standards.

Negotiating a lease agreement is determined by a multitude of factors starting with market conditions and how the property is priced versus other rentals in the area. The landlord’s goal is to collect as much rent each month as possible while mitigating their risk. If the applicant can represent that they would be a stable tenant, the landlord may give them a discount on the monthly rental amount along with including utilities or services.

The applicable law for the products sold by MCW is the law of the Province of Quebec, Canada. MCW shall not be liable for damages of any kind, whether direct or indirect, material or immaterial, or bodily harm (to the extent limitation of such liability is permitted by applicable law), resulting from its negligence, or from malfunctioning, improperly assembled, abused or misused products. The liability of MCW will be limited, in any case, to the amount of the Order but MCW will not be liable for simple errors or omissions which could arise despite the precautions taken in the presentation, sale and delivery of the products.

Starting April 30, 2018, Ontario landlords leasing private residential rental units must use a new standard form of lease (the "New Form"). If you are a landlord, or a property management company, you should be aware that the New Form may affect how you do business. The New Form sets out the essential terms of a lease and outlines both your and your tenant's rights and responsibilities.
A lease with a fixed end date gives certainty of term for both the landlord and the tenant. It specifies the exact day the tenancy will end. The advantage here is that neither party has to give notice to terminate the lease, it simply ends on the specified date. During a fixed term lease the landlord cannot increase the rent, or change any other terms of the lease unless he specifically reserves the right in the agreement, and the tenant agrees to the changes.

Section 16. The Tenant acknowledges that the premises has been inspected. Tenant acknowledge that said premises have been cleaned and all items, fixtures, appliances, and appurtenances are in complete working order. The Tenant promise to keep the premises in a neat and sanitary condition and to immediately reimburse the Landlord for any sums necessary to repair any item, fixture or appurtenance that needed service due to Tenants’, or Tenants’ invitee, misuse or negligence.

An option to purchase refers to a lease which allows the tenant to buy the property at an agreed price during the lease term. Usually the tenant pays the landlord a non-refundable option deposit and in exchange the tenant has the exclusive right to buy the property from the landlord. The tenant is given only a certain amount of time to exercise the option. If the Tenant takes advantage of the option, the Tenant's option deposit will go towards the purchase price of the property. If the Tenant does not take advantage of the option, the Landlord will get to keep the deposit and neither party will have any rights or claims against each other concerning the option.
A: The grace period is a short period (typically 3-5 days) after the rent due date. During this time, the tenant can still pay the rent without being charged a late fee. As long as the tenant pays the rent before the end of the grace period, then a late fee will not be charged. Some states regulate the length of the grace period. In other words, the landlord must not charge a late fee for late rent for a certain number of days. Please check your state and local law to make sure your grace period is within the correct time period. Follow these guidelines if you aren’t sure what to do when the rent is late.
“Just pay what you think is fair,” or a number written on the back of a napkin is not an option. This document should explicitly list the monthly rental amount. If you are unsure of what the going rate is for a place, check out Zillow. You can also include the terms of whether the rent may be subjected to changes in future, using a Notice of Rent Increase.
The security deposit is often handled as an escrow deposit, owned by the tenant, but held by the landlord until the premises are surrendered in good condition (ordinary wear and tear excepted). In some states, the landlord must provide the tenant with the name and account number of the bank where the security deposit is held, and pay annual interest to the tenant. Other regulations may require the landlord to submit a list of pre-existing damage to the property, or forfeit the security deposit immediately (because there is no way to determine whether a prior tenant was responsible).
Under the Rental of Residential Property Act, a landlord is not responsible for damages to a tenant's personal property. If a tenant wishes to be compensated for losses or damages to their personal belongings, the tenant should obtain tenant insurance. If a tenant believes he has a cause of action against the landlord for personal injury and/or damages to personal property, the tenant may pursue the matter in the Supreme Court of Prince Edward Island.
The sample residential lease agreement below describes a contract between “Landlord” Keith Richards and “Tenant” Clara Trueba. She agrees to rent a two bed room, two bathroom apartment in Los Angeles for $2,000 per month for a fixed length of 12 months. The tenant agrees to pay for electricity, gas, water, cable television, and telephone, and the landlord agrees to pay for trash and sewage. This is a good example of what provisions a simple lease agreement might contain, and how one should look in its final form.

From the Landlord's perspective, there doesn't appear to be many disadvantages to this type of lease other than the Landlord will not receive an immediate cash sale on the property. Also, if the real estate market is rising, the Landlord could possibly lose out on the appreciated value of their property if they have specified a specific purchase price of the property. Consequently, it may be safer for the Landlord to make the purchase price equal to the market value of the property at the time the option is exercised.

A rental agreement is extremely important for any landlord wanting to rent their property. Even if you are renting to a friend or family member, or just for a short time, a residential lease agreement can help save you from a lot of problems if (when) things don't work out. A rental contract should outline all your expectations for the renter, and it helps keep both the renter AND the landlord responsible and accountable for their part of the agreement.


Termination – In most lease agreements, there is no termination clause. If there is, there is usually a termination fee or cost to the tenant. In most cases, the tenant would have to be responsible for paying the remaining rent due. For example, if there are 6 months left on the rent, the tenant is responsible for paying the remaining 6 months plus any other early termination fees.

4. Is the apartment in bad shape? A tenant may be able to get out of a lease if the apartment is in a sub-standard state and repeated attempts to have repairs made have been ignored. Sub-standard could mean poor maintenance of the building and/or unit, public health concerns like water and mould, or harassment of a tenant by a landlord. In this case, as long as you have proof, the tenant board can order an end to the tenancy because “the landlord has not met their obligations.”

Tenants will promptly notify the Landlord of any problem, malfunction or damages to the Property, appliances, and landscaping, in writing.  The Landlord will take reasonable corrective actions.  If the problem was caused by Tenants, or their guests or invitees, and not reasonable wear and tear on the Property, Landlord reserves the right to require Tenants to bear the costs of repair.

When writing a residential lease, it’s best to have the terms of the agreement fully negotiated between the landlord and tenant. After a verbal agreement has been established, the parties may pursue creating a written agreement by using a template that contains the language needed in accordance with the governing law of the State the property is located.


Additional occupants: The agreement may include a term restricting the number of occupants in a rental unit or requiring the landlord’s permission before additional occupants can live in the rental unit.  If additional occupants are added, a landlord can only increase the rent if the tenancy agreement includes a term allowing the rent to vary based on the number of occupants or the parties all agree to sign a new tenancy agreement.
