If the monthly rent is not paid when it is due, a “Notice to End a Tenancy Early for Non-payment of Rent” can be provided by the landlord. When this notice is provided, it advises the tenant(s) that they have 14 days to pay the overdue rent, or vacate the apartment. If the rent still has not been paid after this date, the landlord can apply to the Landlord & Tenant Board (LTB) for an order to require the tenant(s) pay the overdue rent, and/or end the tenancy early, if the entire payment is not made by a specified deadline. Reminder notices and warning letters are not issued. If you receive a Form N4, we strongly recommend making the full payment several days before the date indicated on the Form N4, to avoid an LTB hearing and incurring hearing costs. In the case of rent payments being frequently delayed or overdue, the landlord may provide a Form 8, or “Notice to Terminate a Tenancy at the End of Term”. This notice gives the tenant(s) 60 days to vacate their apartment. The landlord can apply to the LTB for an order for an immediate eviction after the notice has been received.
First try and sort it out with your neighbour in a diplomatic way. If that does not work, please call the Meadows Of Perth Apartment management and lodge a noise complaint. A manager will come to your apartment and verify the noise complaint. If the noise is deemed greater than regular household noise, the manager will require a written or emailed complaint detailing the date, time and description of noise. We do require the proper documentation in place to effectively resolve the complaint on a long term basis. Your identification or location will not be disclosed to the offending party at any time.
If your keys are misplaced, please call a manager. When you sign a lease, you also have to provide a $200.00 deposit in case of a misplaced key. We will have to charge your deposit of $200.00 in order to provide you a new one. Our authorized locksmith will be contacted to provide a new set at the resident’s expense. Residents/outside contractors are not permitted to change locks.
As per the Residential Tenancies Act, you must provide 60 days written notice to vacate prior to the end of your tenancy. The termination date must be the last day of the lease, or rental period if on a month-to-month lease. As an example, if notice is provided on November 5th for a monthly tenancy, the termination date will be January 31st. The notice to vacate should be delivered to a building manager who can verify when it was received.
Under the Residential Tenancies Act, a landlord (or their authorized agent) is allowed to enter an apartment under specific circumstances, generally by providing 24 hours written notice, stating the reason for entering and when the apartment will be entered. There are exceptions, such as after a notice to vacate has been given, or in case of emergency.
