What happens if the notice of violation is considered to be something other than rent arrears? At the beginning of the lease, both parties must complete a condition report (Form 1) refining the condition and contents of each room in the apartment. The owner/manager must complete the report and provide 2 copies to the tenant within 7 days of the start of the rental. The tenant, on the other hand, must note any entry with which he does not agree and return the form within 7 days of receipt. If the client does not complete the report and does not return it, he is presumed to agree with the content of the report. At the end of the rental agreement, the owner/manager must complete another report within 14 days and make a copy available to the tenant. What should I do if the owner does not respect the agreement? It is important to know that while you may be dealing directly with the real estate agent about your tenancy, it is the landlord who assumes all of the landlord`s responsibilities under the Residential Tenany Act. Certain sections of the Act may be amended by including a «contracting out» clause in the written lease agreement. The rental agreement is not automatically terminated in the event of a breach of a provision or condition of the contract. Both parties remain bound by the agreement and you must continue to pay your rent and fulfill all your obligations until the contract is terminated.
If the full rent arrears are not paid within 14 days, the lessor may issue a termination for non-payment of rent (Form 1A) (to be used only if a 14-day offence has been issued). This terminates the housing rental agreement and tenants must evacuate the premises within the next seven days. Always check the written rental agreement if the landlord has changed the provisions of the Residential Tenancy Act or has «contractually agreed».

Can I terminate my lease for an infringement by an owner/agent? A breach of your contract means that you have breached one or more of the rules of your rental agreement (rental agreement) with the owner/agent. A lease can be oral or written or a combination of both. This infringement message can be written on a standard form such as a Form 20: Notice of Infringement (by the tenant) or a Form 21: Notice of Infringement for non-payment of rent or it can only be a letter, but it must be written if the landlord wishes to take further action against you. All rental agreements, written or oral, must comply with the Housing Rental Act. If the agent or owner does something wrong and you need to fill out a notice of violation or go to court, it is the owner you list on the forms and communications. Throughout the lease, tenants and landlords each have a number of general rights and obligations that are due to each other.. . .
