2. Try and sublet: A common arrangement is to find someone to take over your lease, known as a sublet. The person stays there and pays rent place while you’re away, but you keep the lease. That means you’re on the hook if something goes wrong. “If you find somebody to sublet and that person doesn’t pay, the landlord can still come after you for the money,” says real estate lawyer and Moneyville columnist Mark Weisleder.
If a landlord fails to provide the Standard Lease within 21 days after a renter has made a request in writing, the renter may: (i) withhold a maximum of one month’s rent; or (ii) give 60 days’ notice to terminate a yearly or fixed-term tenancy early. If the landlord fails to provide the Standard Lease within 30 days after the renter has begun withholding rent, the renter does not have to repay the one month’s rent that was withheld.
Lease Term – This is the length of the lease. Most long term lease arrangements are at least 1 year but some terms can be month to month. As a landlord, it is important to have any lease term end in a seasonally beneficial time period so if the tenant does not renew, you can find a replacement relatively quickly. The best month to have your lease renew is during the typical moving months of June, July and August. If you fail to renew the lease, most state rental laws say that the contract then goes month to month.

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.

From the tenant's perspective, the advantage to this kind of lease is that they don't have to pay the purchase price up front. If the Tenant cannot qualify for a loan, then they have the option of purchasing the property at a later date when their finances are more secure. In addition, the purchase price may be fixed, so the tenant does not have to worry if the real estate market fluctuates.

That said, you can draw up a sublease form by using a standard lease form and fill it out as the landlord. Let your landlord know you are planning to sublet your place and notify them of your sub-tenant nomination. They are allowed to refused the sub-tenant provided they offer serious explanations. A sublet is a sublet (versus assigning a lease) only if you expect to return afterwards.
A: By default this Agreement includes the landlord’s right to enter the property at reasonable times to inspect the property, make improvements or repairs, as well as enter in times of emergency. As the landlord, it is a good idea to give reasonable notice to your tenant before entering the property. For example, in the event of a pipe leaking, you can enter the property but it is wise to give notice to the tenant.
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.

The New Form is part of the Ontario government's effort to reduce inconsistency among residential leases and the number of misunderstandings caused by verbal tenancy agreements. It uses easy-to-read language to help the parties understand not only what the lease agreement covers, but also what it does not, and cannot, cover. By April 30, 2018, a guide to the New Form will be available in 23 languages.
The lease is mutually beneficial. A tenant can't stop paying rent or vacate the property during the lease term — this is a violation of the agreement. Likewise, the landlord can't arbitrarily force the tenant to move. If my sister moves to town, for instance, I can't evict one of my tenants for the sake of giving that space to a family member. The tenant has secured it with a lease. My hands are tied.
