Reminder to landlords in Ontario on March 1st, 2021 we must use the new version of the government lease
Ontario landlords know that we need to use the Ontario Standard Form Of Lease. Previously, residential landlords were allowed to create their own leases customized for their tenants.
Fortunately, with the government lease landlords can still add important clauses to protect our rental properties.
What’s Different About The Updated Lease?
OLA members have been discussing this on our forum. Some of the changes include things like allowing for the use of electronic signatures and clarifying the penalties for not following the rules and for “bad faith” evictions.
