Frequently Asked Questions

What is a Lease Notice?A lease notice is how the Tenant gives notice to the Landlord on such matters like breaches in the terms of the lease or demanding some form of remedy. However, it can also be used for something simple such as providing a notice the party intends to end the lease.

Example of lease notices are: repair notice, intent to vacate notice, and termination notice.
Landlord Forms

Notice to quit is used where a Tenant has:
a. failed to pay their rent within the required time after it was due
b. caused serious damage to premises
c. violence or threats to health, safety of property and other Tenants
d. illegal activities on Premises such as drugs or prostitution

Notice of Lease Violation is used where a Tenant has failed to comply with the Landlord's rules or breached a term of the Lease. The Landlord is giving the Tenant notice to remedy the violation within the notice period. The Landlord may choose to terminate the Lease if the violation is not remedied OR to remedy the violation itself at the Tenant's expense.

Notice of Termination is used where the Landlord wishes to terminate a periodic tenancy (e.g. month to month Lease) or the Lease requires advance notice to terminate the Lease. (e.g. fixed term lease)

Demand for Possession can be used where a Tenant has been previously given a Notice of Lease Violation or the Notice to Quit (for non-payment of rent and where the Landlord has not yet terminated the Lease).

Notice of Rent Increase is used where a Landlord wishes to increase the rent charged on the Premises.

Notice to Pay Rent is used where a Tenant has failed to pay their rent when it was due.

Landlord Forms

Repair Notice is used when the Tenant wants to give notice to the Landlord that the Landlord is breaching a term of the Lease or the state legislation in that it is not properly maintaining the Premises.

Intent to Vacate Notice is used when the Tenant (under a fixed term) wants to give notice to the Landlord that the Tenant plans to vacate the Premises at the end of the notice period.

Termination Notice is used when the Tenant wants to give notice to the Landlord that the Tenant has elected to terminate a Lease with a periodic tenancy or for various reasons such as Landlord failed to repair the Premises within a reasonable time after a Notice to Repair was delivered on the Landlord; death of one of the Tenants; Tenant is a military personnel; or Tenant moving to seniors' home.
An eviction notice is how a landlord gives notice to a tenant to vacate a certain property.

Examples of eviction notices would be Notice to Quit, Notice to Pay or Quit, Notice of Termination, Notice of Lease Violation, Demand for Compliance and Demand for Possession.
What type of property can these notices be used for?These eviction and lease notices are intended for use with residential property such as houses, apartments, condos, etc.

Use with commercial property at your own discretion.
In some jurisdictions, landlords can evict a tenant without cause. In other jurisdictions, the law requires landlords to have ‘just cause’ such as nonpayment of rent or damaging the property.Periodic tenancy means that the lease does not state a specific end date. Instead, the lease runs and is automatically renewed from week-to-week, month-to-month, or year-to-year. In most jurisdictions, if a fixed term lease expires but you continue to allow the tenant to live in the premises, then the lease may become a periodic tenancy.A Repair Notice is used when the Tenant wants to give notice to the Landlord that the Landlord is breaching a term of the Lease or the state legislation and that the Premises is not being maintained properly.An Intent to Vacate Notice is used when the Tenant (under a fixed term) wants to give notice to the Landlord that the Tenant plans to vacate the Premises at the end of the notice period.A Termination Notice is used when the Tenant wants to give notice to the Landlord that the Tenant has elected to terminate a Lease with a periodic tenancy or for various reasons such as Landlord failed to repair the Premises within a reasonable time after a Repair Notice was delivered on the Landlord; death of one of the Tenants; Tenant is a military personnel; or Tenant moving to seniors' home.

Tenant Notices

Tenant notices are used by the tenant to serve notice to the landlord in some circumstances, which allow the tenant and landlord to communicate effectively over lease terminations and repair requests.

Notice to Repair

A Notice to Repair is a form the tenant can use to inform the property owner or manager that the landlord has either violated the lease agreement or that they have not properly maintained the property.

It details the required repairs to the landlord and gives the tenant the option to exit the lease if the repairs are not made by a certain date.

Who needs a Notice to Repair: Any tenant whose landlord has breached the lease terms or has not maintained the rental property to state health and safety standards may want to use this form to let his or her landlord know that the issue is still ongoing.

Notice of Intent to Vacate

A Notice of Intent to Vacate is what the tenant would use when he or she wants to let the landlord know that he or she plans to leave the rental property at the end of the lease term.

Who needs a Notice of Intent to Vacate Premises: Any tenant planning to vacate the property once the existing lease term is up should use this form to confirm that the landlord is aware of the intended departure and that the notice has been acknowledged. The tenant should ensure that the proper amount of notice is given depending on the rental terms.

Notice of Termination

A Notice of Termination is used by the tenant to inform the landlord that he or she wishes to exit the lease.

This notice can be issued for a number of reasons, including no response from the landlord to a notice of repair, or even the tenant moving due to employment.

Who needs a Notice of Termination: A tenant who wishes to exit the lease before the term has expired, for whatever reason, should use this notice to inform the landlord and provide written confirmation of their intention to leave the premises.
