During a Tenancy

During the tenancy landlords and tenants have certain rights, responsibilities, obligations and restrictions. This section deals with the most common issues arising during the tenancy.

Tenant's Duties

Responsibilities of tenants during the tenancy.

Changing Locks

Regulations and controversy regarding security and changing of locks by the tenant.

Landlord's Entry

Conditions under which your landlord can enter a rental unit.

Repairs, Upkeep and Maintenance

The Residential Tenancy Act does spell out both tenants and landlords responsibilities for dealing with regular and emergency repairs.

Quiet Enjoyment

Tenant's right to reasonable peace, comfort and privacy in rented premises and to make full use of the premises.

Termination or Restriction of Services or Facilities

Whenever there is a reduction in housing services which is included in your tenancy agreement there must be a corresponding decrease in rent.

Rent Increase

The Residential Tenancy Act of British Columbia caps annual rent increases to ensure tenants do not face unreasonable rent increases.

Subletting and Assignment

Tenants sometimes need to move before their lease or tenancy agreement is up. The landlord has the right to approve the assignment or sublet, but cannot arbitrarily withhold consent.
