In addition, tenants cannot apply for a standard lease agreement if they sign a fixed-term lease before April 30, 2018 and it is automatically renewed after April 30, 2018 for a monthly lease. The contract must be signed by the landlord and tenant. If you sign a lease on or after April 30, 2018, it must be a standard lease agreement. Before renting an apartment or house, both the owner and the tenant want to protect themselves with a document favorable to the law. This is achieved through a housing rental agreement. This agreement is between the landlord and the Tenant(s) in Ontario. It is signed by both parties. If the lessor makes the standard rental agreement available to a tenant after the tenant has requested it, but the tenant does not accept the proposed terms (e.g.B. if a new term is added), the tenant may give the lessor a period of 60 days to prematurely terminate an annual or temporary rental agreement. If the lessor does not provide the standard rental agreement within 30 days of the start of the tenant`s withholding of rent, the tenant is not required to repay the rent for one month. Please note that you cannot withhold more than one month`s rent and you must continue to pay your rent for the duration of your lease, even if your landlord never gives you the standard rental agreement.
