Condo landlords now have restrictions and new costs when evicting tenants.
Recently implemented measures intended at preventing landlords from evicting people from rental units are now in place. When a tenant is evicted and not in breach of their tenancy, landlords must now provide compensation – one-month’s rent to the evicted tenant or a comparable unit.
New rules apply regardless of reason for the eviction including a landlord or family members using the unit. If the landlord re-rents, demolishes or converts the unit within one year they will be considered to have acted in bad faith and could be fined up to $25,000.
