If your landlord does not let you underlease, you can ask the landlord and tenant council for permission to sublet or terminate your tenancy agreement. You can also contact the Ontario Human Rights Tribunal. 4. The House may set the terms of the transfer or sub-document. 2006, about 17, 98 (4). In Ontario, any housing tenant has the right to assign or sublet their rental unit as long as they receive the landlord`s approval. The difference between an assignment and a subletting is that, in an assignment, the original client withdraws permanently and transfers the lease to the new client. The new tenant pays the rent. In a subletting, the original tenant plans to return and the tenant pays the rent and continues to pay the landlord. If your landlord leaves you to sublet, they are allowed to charge you a fee. The fee can`t be more than what your landlord had to spend on things like a credit check and advertising, if the landlord found the new tenant. If you want to leave your place for a while and then re-enter later, you may be able to sublet to someone else while you are away. The person you sublet is called a subtenant.
(4) If a tenant sublet a rental unit to another person, if a tenant has sublet a rented apartment without the landlord`s consent, the landlord has 60 days after the discovery of the new tenant to ask the landlord and the tenant council to terminate the entire lease. If the landlord does nothing, after 60 days, it is considered the admission of the new tenant. 98. (1) A tenant or former tenant of a rental unit may apply to the board for an order finding that the lessor arbitrarily or inappropriately refused consent to the transfer or subletting of a rental unit to a potential assignee or subtenant. 2006, about 17, 98 (1). You must obtain your landlord`s permission to sublet your place to a particular person. But your landlord can`t refuse without good reason. For example, if that person has caused problems in the past for a landlord, such as.B. property damage or non-payment of 100 rents.
