(2) Subject to paragraph (3), the lessor or, if applicable, the buyer who requested notification from the lessor, must pay the tenant, in addition to the amount to be paid under paragraph 1, an amount equivalent to 12 times the monthly rent payable in the tenancy agreement, if the sharing may thus be a less expensive rent , without having to sign a contract with another person. However, the downside of this type of establishment is that your landlord cannot consult you when choosing your roommates. Rent is granted by a contract called a tenancy or lease agreement. Often, the parties enter into an explicit agreement The lease agreement, which governs the tenant`s property, can be written or oral or both (see s 1 Definition of the “lease”). To be enforceable, the elements of a comprehensive contract (offer, acceptance and consideration) must be present (see Chapter 9: Consumer Protection). (a) the lessor enters into an agreement to sell the rental unit in good faith, the co-tenants are jointly responsible for everything related to their lease, i.e. they are all equally responsible for the other`s behaviour. If the full rent is not paid on time because of a tenant, the landlord can issue an eviction notice that applies to everyone. If the rental unit has been damaged, the landlord can claim financial compensation from any roommate, even if it is not the fault of that person. Terms and conditions that must or may appear in any written lease or contract application may be imposed by a Commission decision and impose different conditions for different categories of leases.
As noted above, the RTR sets out in its schedule the conditions that must be included in each lease. In B.C. there is no law allowing tenants to have a pet. RTA, s 18 allows a rental agreement to include conditions prohibiting pets or to limit the size, type or number of pets a tenant can keep on residential property. If the pet agreement remains silent, then the tenant should be able to get one. If a lease does not authorize pets and a tenant receives one, the landlord can ask the tenant to remove it. If the tenant refuses, the landlord can issue an effective eviction notice. RTA, s 18 is subject to the rights and restrictions of the Animal Act RSBC 1996, c 177, s 4, which states that landlords do not refuse leases or impose discriminatory conditions on a person with a disability who intends to keep a driver in the rental unit.
Be sure to include all standard terms in the tenancy agreement using these forms: NOTE: The RTA allows landlords and tenants to agree on terms in new leases as long as they do not violate the RTA.
