The Landlord’s responsibility is to deal with all matters related to the property. Ontario leases will soon be easier to read and use as a new standard lease form and guide book will roll out at the end of April, 2018.
The provincial government said it will better protect tenants from illegal terms on their leases by making the language simple and easy to understand.
As of April 30, 2018, landlords must use a uniform residential lease for their tenancies. This will only apply to new tenancies.
