Notice To End Tenancy – Given by the Landlord

  1. Why are they issued? If you don’t pay your rent on or before the first day of the month, it is the Housing Corporation’s policy to serve a Ten Day Notice To End A Residential Tenancy showing the outstanding balance of the unpaid rent.
  2. Why are they posted on the door? As a landlord, we must use the forms specified in the Residential Tenancy Act and we must follow the guidelines of the Act to serve documents. The front door is the most conspicuous place of the home and this means there is more chance the notice will be seen. It may seem unfair or embarrassing but we are required by legislation to serve notices this way if you are not home to accept personal delivery.
  3. What should I do if I receive a Ten Day Notice To End A Residential Tenancy? If you pay your rent within five days of receiving the notice you will not have to move out. However, if you pay your rent late repeatedly, the Housing Corporation will issue a One Month Notice To End A Residential Tenancy for paying rent late repeatedly as this is considered a breach of your Tenancy Agreement.

Notice to End Tenancy – Given by the Tenant (Moving Out)

You must give one month’s written notice to the Housing Corporation when you intend to move. This must be received at the Corporation’s office on or before the last day of the month in writing, to take effect on the last day of the following month.

For example, if you will be moving out on June 30, you must deliver your written notice to the office on or before May 31.

Notice can be mailed, hand-delivered, faxed or by email. You must sign and date your notice.

Early Notice Program

If you are able to give an additional 10 (ten) working days notice when you intend to move, you may be eligible for a $100 bonus from the Housing Corporation. The extra time gives Corporation staff the opportunity to select a new tenant, and perform necessary repairs in your suite.

To be eligible:

  5. Your unit is left clean and ready for immediate occupancy by the incoming tenant by 1 pm on the last day of your tenancy. A cleaning checklist is available on the Corporation website or from your caretaker.

The $100 bonus will be sent to you at the time your security deposit is refunded. The bonus may not be used against any maintenance, repairs or other charges.

Pre Move-Out Inspection

Your caretaker will schedule an appointment within a few days to inspect your suite to determine if there is anything that you need to repair or replace before you leave. A copy of this pre move-out inspection will be left in your unit along with the cleaning letter.

Showing The Suite

Once you’ve given notice, we will need to show your suite to potential tenants. Your caretaker will be in touch with you regarding these showings, and your cooperation is appreciated.

Move-Out Inspection

You must leave your suite in a clean, tidy and undamaged condition. After your caretaker inspects your suite, you are required to sign the move-out inspection forms. These will show the condition of your suite and list any repairs and charges that we are assessing. If you disagree, you can sign that you disagree and staff will be in contact with you to resolve the issue.

Your security deposit will be retained or refunded in accordance with the Residential Tenancy Act.
