(2) In addition to the information mentioned in subsection 1, a state review report established under section 35 of the Act [Review of Conditions: Ten rentals] must contain the following points in a way that clearly distinguishes them from other information contained in the report: 1. Dispute resolution request – current tenancy contract – which currently lives in a dwelling and must be settled by a rental agreement. At the end of the term of a fixed-term lease, landlords and tenants may accept another limited term or the lease continues from month to month. Rent can only be increased between fixed-term tenancy agreements with the same tenant, if the terms of termination and time for rent increases are met. Owners must establish a written contract for each lease. Even if an owner does not prepare any of them, the standard terms of a rental agreement apply. Payment of a deposit is also a rental agreement, even if there is no written tenancy agreement and the tenant never moves in. B.c.. The right to lease defines the rights and obligations of the parties in the leases. 13 The lessor must subdivide to the tenant a copy of this contract without delay, at least within 21 days of the conclusion of the contract. Leases must comply with the residential lease agreement (external link) and the rental price law (external link).
Landlords and tenants must sign and date the contract. Landlords must provide a printed copy to their tenants within 21 days of the contract.

Certain tenancy conditions are negotiated between the tenant and the lessor: be sure to include all standard conditions in the tenancy agreement using these forms: (b) that the landlord or a close family member of that landlord intends, at the time of the closing of the lease, to occupy the rental unit in good faith at the end of the life. If your contract is not with the landlord, you will not have protection under the Housing Lease Act. It is common practice when an existing tenant allows a roommate to move in without the landlord`s permission to include that person in the tenancy agreement. 2. A lessor must ensure that the terms of a lease agreement prescribed by Section 13 [lease requirements] of the Act and the provisions of Section 13 [standard conditions] of this regulation are set in the lease so that they are markedly different from the terms not required in those sections. 11 A lessor must ensure that any lease agreement entered into or extended by the lessor on the date or after the law comes into force is in compliance with that part. The total amount of a security deposit must not exceed the equivalent of one month`s rent of 1/2 months. If tenants pay more than that for their deposit, they can withdraw the excess if they pay their rent for a given month during their rent.
However, if the owner authorizes pets, they are allowed to charge an additional rent of one month and two as a surety for the damage the animal may cause. In this case, the combined deposits can be equivalent to one month`s rent. Landlords may also require tenants to deposit deposit bonds for additional keys, garage openings, etc. in addition to the initial warranty and/or deposit for property damage. A deposit can only be recovered by a tenant at the beginning of the lease, but a pet deposit may be recovered at any time during the lease if a pet is brought to the premises to live. The interest rate set on these deposits is set on 1 January this year at 4.5% below the business premium (but it is never less than zero).
