The Unfair Practice Regulations flow out of the Rental Housing Act and, as such, are extremely important.

An “unfair practice” is defined as a failure to comply with these regulations, as defined in the Rental Housing Act, and, as such, it’s extremely important that rental agents are familiar with these regulations to ensure that they don’t cause their landlord clients to be guilty of an unfair practice.

These regulations are essentially an extension of the Rental Housing Act and ‘put the meat’ on the ‘bones’ of the cornerstone Rental Housing Act.

They cover super important matters like:

  • Leases – what may and may not be included in a lease
  • The effect of unsigned or undelivered lease agreements
  • Rentals & the responsibilities of the parties to the agreement
  • Landlord & tenant legislated obligations under the lease and, in particular, their maintenance obligations
  • Reconstruction, refurbishment, conversion, and demolition of the rental property
  • Eviction and the changing of locks
  • The landlord’s right of entry to the rental property, and the tenant’s obligations to provide access
  • House Rules
  • The landlord’s obligations with respect to receipts for payment
  • The landlord’s obligations with respect to the provision of municipal services, as well as what they may chage the tenants

As you will notice from the above, the matters addressed in these regulations are often the responsiblity of a mandated rental agent, which is why rental agents have to be au fait with these obligations.
