New Ontario Standard
Ministry of Housing - Ontario Standard Form Lease.
Effective April 30th, 2018, most Ontario Landlords will be required to use a Standard Form Lease developed by the Government to make landlords and tenants more aware of their rights.
Many landlords are unaware of their rights and the strategies that can be used to legally enhance the performance of their investment :
Encourage rent payments on time.
Increase rents above the guideline without Board approval.
Protect yourself from privacy complaints in photographing and marketing your property.
These strategies are are authorized by the legislation and have been used by institutional landlords for years to improve performance.
I would welcome the opportunity to discuss these strategies with you and see if they can be of assistance in your rental portfolio.
