What methods of payment do you accept for monthly rent?
We accept cash, cheque or e-transfer.
How long are the terms of the lease?
The duration of your tenancy is outlined in the terms of your lease agreement. Typically, the properties that we manage are offered on a minimum 12-month term.
When is rent due?
Rent is due no later than the first day of each month.
What are the possible consequences of overdue rent payments?
If rent is not paid on the first of the month, we can issue a Notice to End a Tenancy Early for Non-Payment of Rent (N4). Essentially, the N4 stipulates that the tenant has 14 days to pay the overdue amount or move out.
If, after the 14-day period, the rent is still unpaid and the tenant won't move, we can submit an application to the Landlord and Tenant Board for an order that requires the tenant to pay the overdue rent and/or evicts the tenant if payment is not received by a specified deadline.
Are monthly rent receipts available?
Our policy is to provide annual receipts that detail monthly rent payments. If you require monthly rent receipts, we can provide them upon special request.

Tenant insurance is not included in your rent. It is your responsibility to secure coverage for your apartment and your belongings.

How often can the rent be increased?
As per the rent increase guidelines outlined in the Residential Tenancies Act, the rent for a unit can only be increased after 12 months have passed since the tenant either moved in or since the tenant's last rent increase.
Do you give notice of a rent increase?
If your unit is subject to a rent increase, you'll receive 90 days written notice.
