MOVING OUT                                                             

Q:   How much notice do I need to give if I wish to move out?

A:   If you do not have a lease, you must give a written notice of termination to the landlord 60 days notice to the last day of a rental period. If it is a weekly or daily tenancy, 28 days is required. If you plan to leave at the end of your lease, you must still give the landlord notice.


Q:   Can I break my lease?

A:   You and your landlord can agree that you can move out before the end of your lease or with less than 60 days notice. You must get the agreement in writing.


Q:   What happens if I assign or sublet my unit without the landlord’s consent?

A:   The landlord can file an application with the Landlord and Tenant Board to evict both you and the unauthorized occupant.
