The CAO’s Guides to Renting Residential Condominium Units

Are you a current landlord of a residential condo unit, or are you thinking about renting out your unit?

Are you a current tenant of a residential condo unit, or are you thinking about renting one?

If so, the CAO is proud to provide the CAO’s Guides for Residential Condominium Landlords and Tenants, developed to help landlords and tenants understand and navigate the unique features of renting a residential condo unit.

You can use these guides to learn about how renting a condominium unit is unique and to help you decide whether renting a residential condo unit is right for you.

What do the Guides Cover?

Whether you are a landlord or a tenant, renting a condo unit means you will have rights and responsibilities under two different laws:

  1. The Condominium Act, 1998 (“the Condo Act”)
    • The Condo Act sets out the rights and responsibilities of condo unit owners, residents, and condominium corporations.
  2. The Residential Tenancies Act, 2006 (“the RTA”)
    • The RTA sets out the rights and responsibilities of landlords and tenants.

These two laws are complicated, and the interplay between them can sometimes lead to confusion and misunderstandings.

That’s precisely why the CAO developed these Guides – they include information for current and prospective landlords and tenants of residential condo units on important topics, including:

  • Information about what the Condo Act and RTA say and how they apply to you;
  • The rights and responsibilities of residential condo unit landlords and tenants;
  • How renting a residential condo unit is different than renting other types of property;
  • Common questions for landlords and tenants; and
  • Who landlords and tenants should contact if they are having an issue.
