Residential Lease Agreement Ontario

Residential lease agreement lawyer Michael Carabash

Free Lease Agreements? No, but it’s the next best thing!

If you’re a Landlord in Ontario and you want to lease out your house, apartment, condo, etc., then you can use our Lease-O-Matic Wizard to create a custom-tailored residential lease agreement. This Residential Lease Agreement also includes a 2 page tenant application which takes into consideration the types of questions you can LEGALLY ask a prospective tenant (under the Ontario Human Rights Code and the Residential Tenancies Act, 2006). Finally, the Residential Lease Agreement includes an eBook about residential leases in Ontario:

Rental Agreement Ontario

If you’re looking for a rental agreement template or a sublease agreement form, you’ve come to the right place. We are now offering lawyer-prepared, customizable, and AFFORDABLE legal forms + Video Guides. You can now purchase a Residential Lease Agreement (if you live in Ontario, Canada) if you’re a Landlord. If you’re a Tenant and you want to Sublet your rental unit, you can now purchase a Residential Sublease Agreement!

Here are some things you should know about these types of agreements:

  • Both agreements are governed by the Residential Tenancies Act, 2006;
  • The Landlord’s obligations are found in the Act;
  • The Tenant’s obligations are found in the Act;
  • The Landlord cannot enforce a no-pets clause (as a general rule);
  • The Landlord cannot require post dated cheques to be provided;
  • The Landlord can only terminate the lease agreement in accordance with the Act;
  • The Sub-Tenant does not necessarily have the same rights vis-a-vis the Tenant as the Tenant does vis-a-vis the Landlord;
  • The Tenant can sublet the premises only with the Landlord’s consent, which must not be unreasonably withheld;
  • The Landlord can charge the Sub-Tenant a reasonable fee incurred in reviewing and approving the Sublet Agreement; and
  • The Tenant cannot charge more to the Sub-Tenant than the Landlord charges to the Tenant.

These are JUST SOME OF THE THINGS YOU NEED TO KNOW IF YOU ARE:

  • A Landlord;
  • A Tenant; or
  • A Subtenant

All of this information, plus more, can be found in the DL Guides that come with the Residential Lease Agreement (only $47) and Residential Sublease Agreement (only $37). So what are you waiting for? Just click on the links above and check out the samples. They’re the best thing next to hiring a lawyer (at a few hundred dollars an hour). And there’s simply no comparison to what else you can find on the web (crap). Those other agreements may not be lawyer-prepared, specific to your jurisdiction (Ontario – remember, laws change from province to province!), easy to read, and CHUCK FULL OF GUIDANCE in the form of a FREE Video Guide and TWO FREE WRITTEN GUIDES!
