CHANGES TO THE RESIDENTIAL TENANCIES ACT AS OF SEPTEMBER 1, 2017:

As of September 1, 2017, the Ontario government has introduced new requirements for Landlords under the “Rental Fairness Act.”

In order for the landlord to evict a tenant so that they or a family member can live in the rental unit:

  1. the landlord or family member must intend to live in the unit for at least one year and;
  2. the landlord must compensate the tenant for one month’s rent or offer the tenant another acceptable unit.

If the landlord advertises the rental unit for rent less than one year after the tenant vacates the unit, there is an inference of bad faith and the tenant may apply to the Landlord Tenant Board within a year of moving out of that unit for:

  1. all or a portion of any increased rent incurred for a one-year period after vacating the rental unit;
  2. reasonable out-of-pocket expenses including moving, storage, and other expenses,
  3. abatement of rent and;
  4. an administrative fine for up to $25,000.00
