To change or end a long-term tenancy, the landlord must give the tenant three months’ written Notice of Alteration or a written Notice of Termination.
The landlord can only end a lease for one of the following reasons: if the landlord or their immediate family want to live in the rental
- if the rental will be used for something other than residential premises
- if the rental will be renovated significantly (proof may be required)
- if the tenant is working for the landlord maintaining or managing the rental, and the job ends
You have 15 days to apply to the Residential Tenancies Tribunal to dispute a Notice of Alteration or a Notice of Termination after receiving the Notice.
A long-term tenant can end a lease at any time by giving the landlord one month’s written notice.
Rent Increase – What you need to know:
- The landlord must serve a 3-month notice
- The landlord must also be increasing the rent for each comparable unit in the same building by the same percentage or
- The increased rent is reasonable in relation to that charged for comparable units in the same geographical area.
- You have 15 calendar days from the date you receive the Notice of Rent Increase to apply to the Residential Tenancies Tribunal to have the notice reviewed.
- If you do not wish to pay the increased rent, you can terminate the lease. A Notice of Rent Increase can be treated as a Notice of Termination. If you chose to end your lease, you must give the landlord one month written notice before the day the rent is due to increase.
