Paying rent - Other expenses
The landlord must not require or receive from a tenant a payment for the preparation, renewal or extension of a tenancy agreement. PENALTY OF UP TO $2 200
The tenant generally has to pay for any costs associated with connecting services to the property for which the tenant will be billed, such as, gas, electricity, and telephone.
Tenants moving into new properties should check if a telephone line has been installed. If it hasn’t, then the tenant should request the landlord pay to have one installed, otherwise the tenant may find him/herself paying the high cost of doing so.
