The CAO’s Guides to Condominium Unit Rentals

As the number of condominium corporations in the Province of Ontario grow, so does the number of individuals who may want to rent, or rent out, a condominium unit. However, condominium units are different from regular rental units in several important ways. The biggest difference is that all residents (including tenants) living in a condominium community must comply with the Condominium Act, 1998 (the Condo Act) and with the condominium corporation’s declaration, by-laws and rules. These documents are collectively referred to as the governing documents of the condominium corporation and contain important information regarding what is or is not allowed in the condominium community as well as the rights and obligations of owners and residents.

An additional important consideration for both landlords and tenants is the Residential Tenancies Act, 2006 (RTA). The RTA is provincial legislation that governs the relationship between landlords and tenants. The RTA does apply to most residential rental units in the Province of Ontario, including condominium units.
