Your tenancy agreement

< Back to list

When you rent a place to live, your lessor, agent or provider must give you a written agreement to sign on or before the day you are entitled to move in.

The only exception is for a short tenancy moveable dwelling agreement for 42 days or less , where you and your lessor may make a written statement to that effect.

The agreement must be written in a clear and precise way, and include standard terms set out in the Act. Your agreement will describe your rights and responsibilities under the Act and may include additional terms agreed between you and the lessor, agent or provider. Terms of the agreement must not contradict the Act.
