The new standardized lease contains an appendix that defines the legal framework for the Residential Tenancies Act in Ontario and contains contact information for the landlord and tenant council. The standard rent applies to most residential rentals in Ontario, including: Purpose of Form: This form is a rental agreement for residential rentals (standard lease). Owners of most private housing units must use this form (standard rent) if they enter into a tenancy agreement with a tenant. Until February 28, 2021, landlords and tenants can use the old or updated version of the standard lease for their lease. For most rental units, new contracts signed on Or after March 1, 2021 must be compatible with the updated standard lease, which dates back to December 2020. Tenants cannot apply for a standard lease if they have entered into a lease before April 30, 2018, unless they and their landlord negotiate a new lease with new terms on or after that date.

The new standardized lease includes a section (“Additional Conditions”) in which the lessor can insert important clauses into the contract. As explained above, this should not allow landlords to insert a language contrary to standard conditions or to add clauses contrary to the Housing Act. However, this section is an ideal place for homeowners to insert information about common amenities (for example.B. when and how often a common laundry can be used, or how a common yard is used, or parking rules for customers). Owners should be aware that all clauses inserted in this section must be legal to be enforceable (for example, not. B of clauses prohibiting pets). Owner, note – If a tenant asks for a renewal rent, you must use the new form after April 30. If a customer sets a requirement for the new standardized rental, you have 21 days to provide it.
If a landlord does not make the new standardized tenancy agreement available, the tenant can withhold a one-month rent. If the landlord does not make the standardized tenancy agreement available after 30 days from the tenant`s withholding of rent, the tenant can keep the rent withheld. As a result, all landlords should provide the new standardized tenancy agreement as quickly as requested by a tenant, in order to avoid this possible outcome. To terminate a rental agreement prematurely in this case, the tenant must notify the termination of 60 days no later than 30 days after the standard rent by the landlord.
