I just wanted to mention a few things that are often overlooked when it comes to residential lease | tenancy agreements (Ontario). First, those agreements are governed by the Residential Tenancies Act, 2006. This means that if you try to by-pass or override the provision of that Act through your residential lease agreement, the latter will be void and unenforceable. For example, if you try to include a no-pets clause, it’s only for show and can’t actually be enforced. Same thing with requiring pre-authorized payments. Just don’t be surprised! Also, when it comes to the rights and responsibilities of the landlord and the tenant, some of these things are already prescribed in the Act (so there’s nothing you can do about ’em). For example, the Landlord can’t harrass or interfere with the tenant’s reasonable enjoyment of the rental unit. The landlord must also maintain the rental unit in a good state of repair and fit for habitation and for complying with health, safety, housing and maintenance standards.
A Landlord can use this Agreement to rent out a residential unit. This Agreement comes with a Rental Application.
