Tenant's Right to Quiet Enjoyment

As a tenant you are entitled to enjoy peace and quiet in the property you rent and you should allow your neighbours peace and quiet in their properties.

What you may consider a breach of quiet enjoyment:

  • frequent entry by the landlord especially without notice
  • unreasonable and ongoing noise or other disturbance
  • harassment or intimidation
  • preventing the tenant from having guests
  • intentionally removing or restricting services
  • temporary discomfort or inconvenience is NOT a breach of the covenant of quiet enjoyment

What you can do:

  • notify your landlord in writing about the problem
  • file a claim for damages (you may be entitled to reimbursement for loss of use of a portion of the property)
  • end your tenancy when interference is substantial enough and not resolved
