Leases must comply with the residential lease agreement (external link) and the rental price law (external link). Community Economic Development Social Planner ced@vancouver.ca Be sure to include all standard terms in the lease by using these forms: Effective December 11, 2017, an „eviction clause“ requiring the tenant to relocate at the time of withdrawal of the contract can only be used in a fixed-term tenancy agreement if: the landlord and tenant must sign and date the contract. Landlords must provide a printed copy to their tenants within 21 days of the contract. If your contract is not with the landlord, you will not have protection under the Housing Lease Act. It is common practice when an existing tenant allows a roommate to move in without the landlord`s permission to include that person in the tenancy agreement. All leases must include standard conditions, protect landlords and tenants, and ensure that leases are fair and balanced. These conditions also apply in the absence of a written lease. Owners are required to establish a written agreement for each lease. Even if an owner does not prepare any of them, the standard terms of a rental agreement apply. Payment of a deposit is also a rental agreement, even if there is no written tenancy agreement and the tenant never moves in.

The Vancouver Agreement was a joint initiative of the governments of Canada, British Columbia and the City of Vancouver to develop and revitalize vancouver, and in particular its downtown eastside, through collaborative projects and departments at all levels of government, as well as community and business groups. While other parts of the city are also targeted by the initiative, the Downtown Eastside across Canada is infamous for its severe problems of poverty, drug addiction, prostitution, violent crime and homelessness, and one of the stated goals of the agreement is to promote the health, safety and economic and social well-being of the neighbourhood. The initial five-year contract began in March 2000 and expired in March 2010. Additional inmates: The contract may contain a clause limiting the number of persons detained in a rental unit or requiring the owner`s permission before the additional occupants can reside in the rental unit. If additional residents are added, a landlord can only increase the rent if the lease includes a term to vary the rent according to the number of occupants, or if the parties all agree to sign a new lease. At the end of the term of a fixed-term lease, landlords and tenants may accept another limited term or the lease continues from month to month.
