I start from the way you describe the configuration, that you are a personal user and that you use the rent-a-room scheme. If this is the case, your „tenant“ is effectively a „licensee“ and the provisions of the Housing Rental Act generally do not apply to such rental agreements. However, these are exceptional circumstances and an emergency law has been passed, which also includes leases with a chamber. Indeed, you can only evacuate your tenant if „a notice has been issued before the emergency period and the RTB issues an order of finding to support the dismissal for violation of the obligations of the tenants.“ It has also proved useful to resolve disputes and clarify guidelines. What`s really good about the deal is that if you continue tenant, you can update them to fix any issues while progressing. I would call myself a „new“ owner and nothing can teach you how experience can. To date, I have five different tenants under the rent-a-room program and all of them have indicated that they are satisfied with this agreement. Some even said that they had never gotten a contract/agreement in previous leases. Tenants like it.
This is the standard household settlement of peatlands that you expect, such as cleaning common areas, removing containers, maintaining tv volume after 10 p.m., etc. But it also includes social behavior, respect for other tenants, and possible contract violations that can lead to layoffs. For me, smoking is a red flag. If someone smokes in the house, they are asked to leave. I have tried to find clarification on this subject from a legal point of view, but I have not found anything in this particular case. As a result, the condition take your away has been in the agreement since the beginning….
