Information about subleasing or assigning your rental premises to another person.

Landlords and tenants must meet specific conditions to successfully end a tenancy.


The rental agreement is a contract of terms between the landlord and tenant, agreed on before the tenant moves in. The agreement may be written, verbal or implied, but written is always better because it provides evidence should there be a problem.

A rental agreement can’t take away any of the tenant’s rights outlined in the Residential Tenancies Act (RTA).
