MSD will check the needs of most tenants for public housing every three years, or if you have a significant change in circumstances. The goal is to make sure that you still have to live in public housing and that the type of housing always meets your needs. Tenants aged 75 and over or residing in a property rebuilt for their needs (for example. B wheelchair access) will not have their rental agreement checked. If you pay rent based on income (IRR), there are a few extra things you need to do that you can find on the work and income site. We have summarized the main points below. The tenant had repeatedly told the landlord that she and her partner were both working. But the rental court said that under the law, “that`s not the point,” and that landlords are simply not allowed to make decisions on the basis of whether you work or not. The court stated: “The Residents` Rights Act of 1986 and the Human Rights Act of 1993 make it clear that the question of whether a person is employed or receiving a service or VAC is not relevant to rental decisions.” You should inform MSD if your living conditions, partner or family change.
For this, things like starting a new job, income changes, ending or starting a relationship or people entering or moving into your home may include. Your contract will be one of two types: But a fixed-term lease automatically becomes an indeterminate (periodic) lease when the end date is reached, unless you or the lessor tells the other that you do not want the lease to continue, or unless the two of you agree on something else , like another fixed-term lease. If your lease expires within 12 months and you have a fee that your loan does not cover, you or your landlord can claim a right. If you stay in the house for more than 12 months, you cannot assert your rights. The lessor terminated the lease because she mistakenly believed that the tenant and her husband had lied about their work status and that they were indeed receiving a work and income benefit. The tenant took the landlord to the rental court and claimed that his rights under the Human Rights Act had been violated – the right to be non-discriminatory because of his “employment status”. MSD checks your IRR at least once a year. As mentioned above, changes in your income or circumstances may affect the amount of rent you must pay. Leasing services offer a standard rental contract that also includes a form for examining objects (see “Other Resources” at the end of this chapter).
Most landlords use this form, but if your landlord does not, you should receive a copy of the tenant administration`s property verification form and ask the landlord to complete it with you as part of the lease. You must pay a loan of up to four weeks at the beginning of your rent.
