In all cases, the law defined in the RTA applies. A periodic lease means that there is no deadline in the lease. The tenant may continue to live in the property until the tenant or landlord announces the termination of the lease. There are several types of periodic rentals, including regular monthly rental agreements (where the tenant agrees to rent month after month and rents monthly) and weekly periodic rentals (where the tenant agrees to rent week after week and pay the weekly rent). The law on rental housing is always enforced through any agreement that landlords and tenants take on their own. If the law is silent on a particular subject, landlords and tenants can accept something as long as it is not illegal. For example, the lease will generally include conditions to determine whether pets are admitted, which is not covered by law. Owners and tenants are free to enter into their own pet agreements.
