For tenants who wish to break a rental agreement, be aware that you are responsible for the entire rent due to the end of your lease. For this reason, subletting or assigning your lease is a good idea, as it reduces your liability for the rent due. 1. Order that assignment or sublease be authorized. 100. (1) Where a tenant transfers the occupancy of a rental unit in a manner other than by an assignment authorized under section 95 or by an authorized sublease under section 97, the lessor may apply to the board of directors for an order to cease lease and evict the tenant and the person to whom the occupation of the rental unit was transferred. 2006, c. 17, see 100(1). The subletting cannot exceed the duration of the master rental contract (the lease signed by the original tenant at the time of the first rental of the property). For example, if the original tenant has signed a one-year lease and has been living in the property for six months, a tenant can only rent the property for a maximum of six months. 4. The board of directors may lay down conditions for transfer or sublease.
2006, c. 17, p. 98 (4). This Agreement applies when a roomer lives with an owner or an immediate family member of the owner and shares a kitchen and/or bathroom with the owner. In this case, there is no coverage under the Housing Rental Act. This is usually the case for rooms in private homes or in some common homes where the owner`s son or daughter resides in the accommodation with you. 5. If an order is placed in accordance with paragraph 3(1) or (2), the assignment or subletting shall have the same legal effect as if the lessor had accepted it. 2006, c. 17, p.
98 (5). 98. 1. A tenant or former tenant of a rental unit may apply to the board of directors for an injunction finding that the lessor has arbitrarily or unreasonably refused consent to the assignment or sublease of a rental unit to an assignee or potential tenant. 2006, c. 17, p. 98 (1). 3.
If, in an application referred to in paragraph 1, the Management Board finds that a lessor has unlawfully refused, in an application referred to in paragraph 1, to accept an assignment or sublease, the Management Board may provide one or more of the following information: the sublease agreement shall be accompanied by a copy of the master lease. Both the original tenant and the subtenant are responsible for the conditions set out in the master-leasing, so the subcontractor must have a copy of the master-lease. (a) a rental agreement referred to in paragraph 1 or 2 is not concluded within the time limit laid down in paragraph 3; 2. If necessary, authorize by order another assignment or sublease proposed by the tenant. 104. (1) If a person lives in a rental unit as a result of an assignment of the unit without the consent of the lessor, the lessor may negotiate a new lease with the person. 2006, c. 17, p. 104 (1). If you sublet your room, the original lease between you and your landlord will remain valid, which means that you will remain liable to your landlord for the rent, all damages suffered by your tenant and all noise claims, garbage, etc. until the end of the contract.
The sublease agreement signed between you and the subtenant is separate from the lease agreement, but it is also legally binding. They actually become their owner. The tenant must never enter into an agreement with the subtenant that lasts longer than his original lease and the rent charged to the subtenant must not exceed the rent charged by the lessor to the tenant. The terms of the sublease agreement should be clear and include the rental price, the length of stay, the use of public spaces and furniture, as well as the price of incidental costs. A copy of the lease signed between the lessor and the original tenant should also be given to the subtenant at the same time as the sublease agreement.. . . .
