Instructions and Checklist
Month-to-Month Lease Agreement



   The Landlord must sign the Month-to-Month Lease Agreement

   The Tenant(s) must sign the Month-to-Month Lease Agreement. If there is more than one adult Tenant, each Tenant should sign the Month-to-Month Lease Agreement.

   Generally, the Landlord and the Tenant(s) will each retain an original signed Month-to-Month Lease Agreement. Therefore, if there is one Landlord and two Tenants, three original leases must be executed (i.e., signed and dated).

   Certain provinces requires the Landlord and Tenant(s) to conduct an inspection of the premises to be rented, either before physical occupancy of the property by the Tenant(s) or before the Month-to-Month Lease Agreement is signed by either party. Even if a province does not specifically require a joint inspection, it is nonetheless a good idea to conduct one for the protection of both parties.  
 
   These forms contain the basic terms and language that should be included in month-to-month lease agreements. The laws in some provinces require a lessor (i.e., the person who

is renting out his property) to make additional written disclosures, including disclosures about the condition of the dwelling, the building, the neighbourhood, the environment and any other known problems. You should consult with a real estate agent or solicitor in your area to determine what additional disclosures, if any, are required in your province or locality.  Even if these disclosures are not required by law, a Tenant may still request that they be made, and may negotiate to make them part of his agreement.

   Laws vary from time to time and from province to province. These forms are not a substitute for legal advice. These forms should be considered only a starting point, and should not be used or signed before first consulting with a solicitor to ensure that they address your particular situation. A solicitor should be consulted before negotiating any document with another party.




General Information
Month-to-Month Lease Agreement

Whenever a landlord (who may be the owner of an apartment building, condominium or residence) rents a unit to a tenant, an agreement should be written and signed by both landlord and tenant and should set forth the terms to which the parties have agreed. Such a document is generally called a lease or rental agreement. Many provinces consider oral agreements regarding the rental of real property to be invalid; these provinces require a written agreement.  

Generally the lease or rental agreement is for a fixed term (e.g., six months or one year), which means that the landlord and the tenant are contractually bound for the duration of the lease term: the tenant must continue to pay rent to the landlord and the landlord must continue to allow the tenants occupancy of the premises.  In a month-to-month lease, both parties are permitted greater flexibility than in the longer-term leases.  Either party may terminate the agreement by providing written notice, which notice must usually be at least 30 days.  This flexibility may benefit both parties.  For example, if the premises are in an appreciating rental market, the landlord may elect a month-to-month tenancy so that she has the flexibility to adjust the rent.  A tenant may choose a month-to-month tenancy if he has uncertain future plans.  

Some provinces require that the landlord and tenant conduct an inspection of the premises to be rented either before physical occupancy of the property by the tenant or before the lease is signed by either party. A joint inspection form, in which landlord and tenant agree as to the presence and condition of items in the apartment and the apartment itself, is useful to document the inspection and can help avoid problems or misunderstandings at the end of the lease term. Even if a province does not require a joint inspection, it is a good idea to complete one for the protection of both parties: a joint inspection can help the landlord justify any security deposit deductions, if warranted, or can demonstrate that certain property damage predated the tenants occupancy.

If more than one tenant signs the lease, each tenant may be held responsible for all of the obligations under the lease if the other tenants dont perform their obligations.  In other words, a tenant may be held responsible for the entire rental amount if his co-tenants do not pay their share.

If Landlord's right of reentry is exercised following abandonment of the Premises by Tenant, then Landlord shall consider any personal property belonging to Tenant and left on the Premises to also have been abandoned, in which case Landlord may dispose of all such personal property in any manner Landlord shall deem proper and Landlord is hereby relieved of all liability for doing so.

12.   Insurance.

12.1   Insurance.  Landlord and Tenant shall each be responsible for maintaining appropriate insurance for their respective interests in the Premises and property located on the Premises.

Landlord encourages Tenant to obtain renters insurance or other similar coverage to protect against risk of loss.

13.   No Other Representations, Construction; Governing Law; Consents.

13.1   No Other Representations.  Tenant expressly acknowledges and agrees that Landlord has not made and is not making, and Tenant, in executing and delivering this Lease, is not relying upon, any warranties, representations, promises or statements, except to the extent that they are expressly set forth in this Lease.  It is understood and agreed that all understandings and agreements heretofore had between the parties are merged into this Lease, which alone fully and completely expresses their agreements.

   13.2   Construction and Severability.  If any of the provisions of this Lease, or the application thereof to any person or circumstances, shall, to any extent, be held invalid or unenforceable for any reason, the remainder of this Lease, or the application of such provision or provisions to persons or circumstances other than those as to whom or which it is held invalid or unenforceable shall not be affected thereby, and every provision of this lease shall be valid and enforceable to the fullest extent permitted by law.  If any provision of this Lease is deemed invalid or unenforceable by any court of competent jurisdiction, and if limiting such provision would make the provision valid, then such provision shall be deemed to be construed as so limited.

15.   Miscellaneous.

15.1   Entire Agreement.  This Lease contains all of the understandings relating to the leasing of the Premises and the Landlords obligations in connection therewith and neither the Landlord nor any agent or representative of the Landlord has made or is making, and the Tenant in executing and delivering this Lease is not relying upon, any warranties, representations, promises or statements whatsoever, except to the extent expressly set forth in this Lease. All understandings and agreements, if any, heretofore had between the parties are merged in this Lease, which alone fully and completely expresses the agreement of the parties.  This Lease may be modified in writing and must be signed by both Landlord and Tenant.

15.2   No Waiver.  The failure of either party to insist in any instance upon the strict keeping, observance or performance of any provision of this Lease or to exercise any election in this Lease shall not be construed as a waiver or relinquishment for the future of such provision, but the same shall continue and remain in full force and effect. No waiver or modification by either party of any provision of this Lease shall be deemed to have been made unless expressed in writing and signed by the party to be charged. The receipt and retention by the Landlord of Rent with knowledge of the breach of any provision of this Lease shall not be deemed a waiver of such breach.

15.3   Cumulative Rights.  Landlords and Tenants rights under this Lease are cumulative, and shall not be construed as exclusive of each other unless otherwise required by law.

15.7   Indemnification.  To the extent permitted by law, Tenant will indemnify and hold Landlord and Landlords property, including the Premises, free and harmless from any and all liability for loss, claims, injury to or death of any person, including Tenant, or for damage to property arising from Tenants use and occupation of the Premises, or from the acts or omissions of any person or persons, including Tenant, in or about the Premises with Tenants express or implied consent, except Landlords act or negligence.

Instructions and Checklist
Month-to-Month Lease Agreement



   The Landlord must sign the Month-to-Month Lease Agreement

   The Tenant(s) must sign the Month-to-Month Lease Agreement. If there is more than one adult Tenant, each Tenant should sign the Month-to-Month Lease Agreement.

   Generally, the Landlord and the Tenant(s) will each retain an original signed Month-to-Month Lease Agreement. Therefore, if there is one Landlord and two Tenants, three original leases must be executed (i.e., signed and dated).

   Certain provinces requires the Landlord and Tenant(s) to conduct an inspection of the premises to be rented, either before physical occupancy of the property by the Tenant(s) or before the Month-to-Month Lease Agreement is signed by either party. Even if a province does not specifically require a joint inspection, it is nonetheless a good idea to conduct one for the protection of both parties.  
 
   These forms contain the basic terms and language that should be included in month-to-month lease agreements. The laws in some provinces require a lessor (i.e., the person who

is renting out his property) to make additional written disclosures, including disclosures about the condition of the dwelling, the building, the neighbourhood, the environment and any other known problems. You should consult with a real estate agent or solicitor in your area to determine what additional disclosures, if any, are required in your province or locality.  Even if these disclosures are not required by law, a Tenant may still request that they be made, and may negotiate to make them part of his agreement.

   Laws vary from time to time and from province to province. These forms are not a substitute for legal advice. These forms should be considered only a starting point, and should not be used or signed before first consulting with a solicitor to ensure that they address your particular situation. A solicitor should be consulted before negotiating any document with another party.




General Information
Month-to-Month Lease Agreement

Whenever a landlord (who may be the owner of an apartment building, condominium or residence) rents a unit to a tenant, an agreement should be written and signed by both landlord and tenant and should set forth the terms to which the parties have agreed. Such a document is generally called a lease or rental agreement. Many provinces consider oral agreements regarding the rental of real property to be invalid; these provinces require a written agreement.  

Generally the lease or rental agreement is for a fixed term (e.g., six months or one year), which means that the landlord and the tenant are contractually bound for the duration of the lease term: the tenant must continue to pay rent to the landlord and the landlord must continue to allow the tenants occupancy of the premises.  In a month-to-month lease, both parties are permitted greater flexibility than in the longer-term leases.  Either party may terminate the agreement by providing written notice, which notice must usually be at least 30 days.  This flexibility may benefit both parties.  For example, if the premises are in an appreciating rental market, the landlord may elect a month-to-month tenancy so that she has the flexibility to adjust the rent.  A tenant may choose a month-to-month tenancy if he has uncertain future plans.  

Some provinces require that the landlord and tenant conduct an inspection of the premises to be rented either before physical occupancy of the property by the tenant or before the lease is signed by either party. A joint inspection form, in which landlord and tenant agree as to the presence and condition of items in the apartment and the apartment itself, is useful to document the inspection and can help avoid problems or misunderstandings at the end of the lease term. Even if a province does not require a joint inspection, it is a good idea to complete one for the protection of both parties: a joint inspection can help the landlord justify any security deposit deductions, if warranted, or can demonstrate that certain property damage predated the tenants occupancy.

If more than one tenant signs the lease, each tenant may be held responsible for all of the obligations under the lease if the other tenants dont perform their obligations.  In other words, a tenant may be held responsible for the entire rental amount if his co-tenants do not pay their share.

If Tenant breaches any terms or conditions of this Lease, Tenant shall forfeit the Deposit, as permitted by law.

3.2   Return of Deposit.  In the event that Tenant shall fully and faithfully comply with all of the terms, provisions, covenants and conditions of this Lease, the Deposit shall be returned to Tenant after the date fixed as the end of the Lease and after delivery of entire possession of the Premises to Landlord.

4.   Default.

4.1   Event of Default.  If Tenant defaults in fulfilling any of the covenants of this Lease, Tenant shall be in default of this Lease.  Then, in any one or more of such events, subject to any statute, ordinance or law to the contrary, and upon Landlord serving a written seven (7) days notice upon Tenant specifying the nature of said default and upon the expiration of said seven (7) days, if Tenant does not cure a default of which he has been notified, or if the default cannot be completely cured or remedied in seven days, Landlord may at Landlords option: (i) cure such default and add the cost of such cure to Tenants financial obligations under the Lease; or (ii) declare Tenant in default and terminate the Lease.

Any assignment or sublease without Landlords written prior consent shall, at Landlords option, terminate this Lease.  No assignment, underletting, occupancy or collection shall be deemed a waiver of the provisions of this Lease, the acceptance of the assignee, undertenant or occupant as tenant, or a release of Tenant from the further performance by Tenant of covenants on the part of Tenant in this Lease.

If Landlord's right of reentry is exercised following abandonment of the Premises by Tenant, then Landlord shall consider any personal property belonging to Tenant and left on the Premises to also have been abandoned, in which case Landlord may dispose of all such personal property in any manner Landlord shall deem proper and Landlord is hereby relieved of all liability for doing so.

15.2   No Waiver.  The failure of either party to insist in any instance upon the strict keeping, observance or performance of any provision of this Lease or to exercise any election in this Lease shall not be construed as a waiver or relinquishment for the future of such provision, but the same shall continue and remain in full force and effect. No waiver or modification by either party of any provision of this Lease shall be deemed to have been made unless expressed in writing and signed by the party to be charged. The receipt and retention by the Landlord of Rent with knowledge of the breach of any provision of this Lease shall not be deemed a waiver of such breach.

15.7   Indemnification.  To the extent permitted by law, Tenant will indemnify and hold Landlord and Landlords property, including the Premises, free and harmless from any and all liability for loss, claims, injury to or death of any person, including Tenant, or for damage to property arising from Tenants use and occupation of the Premises, or from the acts or omissions of any person or persons, including Tenant, in or about the Premises with Tenants express or implied consent, except Landlords act or negligence.

This lease was pretty close to what we needed. We added an extra section because our house will remain on the market while being rented but the bulk of what we needed was included. The $20 spent here saved us a lot of time figuring it out ourselves... or hiring a lawyer. I would use this site again.
