Short-Term Rentals

Step 3: Solutions

Here’s what to do now that you’ve identified your issue and reviewed your legal obligations.

  • Describe your situation
  • Another condo owner, the condo manager or the condo corporation has contacted me about a short-term rental issue

Determine what to do next

Another owner or occupant or the condo corporation may contact you if they believe that you are renting your unit on a short-term basis if there is a provision in the condo corporation’s governing documents about short-term rentals that you have not followed.

Respond to whomever contacted you to get more information or to see if you can resolve the issue. Use one of our letter templates, noting the date and time you sent it.

You may wish to ask your condo manager or board if you do not know why you’ve been contacted. You should also check your condo corporation’s governing documents to see if they contain any provisions dealing with short-term rentals.

You must comply with the Condo Act and your condo corporation’s governing documents and any provisions regarding short-term rentals.

You may wish to seek legal advice from a paralegal or lawyer licensed by the Law Society of Ontario or the Law Society Referral Service.

You must comply with your condo corporation’s governing documents. Otherwise another owner or your condo corporation may take legal action against you. This may include filing a case against you with the Condominium Authority Tribunal.


Follow up

Use the following templates for letters to your condo corporation, an owner or occupant when trying to resolve an issue. Make sure you keep a copy of your letter with the date and time you sent it.

What if these steps don’t resolve my issue?

You may be able to file an application with the Condominium Authority Tribunal if you’ve tried all the steps above and the short-term rental related issue has continued and if your condo corporation’s governing documents have provisions about short-term rentals.
