About this notice...
Use this form to terminate the tenancy if the tenant owes rent and is still living in the rental unit. There are many ways that you can give this notice to the tenant. You can: • • • • hand it directly to the tenant or to an adult in the rental unit, leave it in the tenant's mailbox or where mail is ordinarily delivered, place it under the door of the rental unit or through a mail slot in the door, send it by fax to a fax machine where the tenant carries on business or to a fax machine in their residence, send it by courier to the tenant (if you courier it, you must allow one business day for delivery), send it by mail (if you mail it, you must allow five calendar days for delivery).

•

•

You cannot give the tenant this notice by posting it on the door of the tenant’s rental unit. Keep a copy of this notice for your records. If the tenant does not move out or pay the rent owing by the date that you put in this notice, you can apply to the Ontario Rental Housing Tribunal for an order terminating the tenancy and evicting the tenant and/or for payment of the rent owing.

Address of Rental Unit: Termination Date:

Fill in the address and unit number of the rental unit covered by this notice. Fill in the termination date. If the tenancy is a daily or weekly tenancy, the date on this line must be at least seven calendar days after the date you give the tenant this notice. For any other type of tenancy, such as monthly, the date on this line must be at least 14 calendar days after the date you give the tenant this notice. When you are counting the days for the notice, do not count the day that you are giving this notice. Example: Theresa Able, the landlord, has a monthly tenancy agreement with Bill Freeman. If Theresa hands this notice directly to Bill on January 10th, she would complete this line as follows: “You must move out of the rental unit identified above on or before January 24, 2001...” If Theresa mails this notice to Bill on January 10th, she would have to add an additional five calendar days for mailing. She would complete the line as follows: “You must move out of the rental unit identified above on or before January 29, 2001...”

On the form, include the total amount of rent the tenant owes. The tenant will not have to move out if the tenant pays all the rent that is due on or before the termination date.

Important Information

1.

The termination date cannot be earlier than the seventh calendar day after this notice is given for a daily or weekly tenancy, and not earlier than the 14th calendar day for all other tenancies. If the tenant does not move out by the date in this notice and does not pay the amount owing, the landlord can apply to the Ontario Rental Housing Tribunal for an order terminating the tenancy and evicting the tenant and/or ordering the payment of arrears of rent.

2.

If the tenant disagrees with what the landlord claims in this notice, the tenant does not have to move out of the rental unit. However, the landlord may apply to the Tribunal for an order terminating the tenancy and evicting the tenant. The landlord cannot apply until the day after the termination date in this notice. If the landlord applies, the Tribunal will schedule a hearing. The landlord must then give the tenant a copy of the application and the Notice of Hearing. If the landlord files an application and the tenant wants to dispute it, the tenant must file a written dispute with the Tribunal no later than five calendar days after the tenant is given the Notice of Hearing. If the tenant does not dispute the application, the Tribunal can issue an order evicting the tenant without holding a hearing.

3.

If the landlord applies to the Tribunal, the tenant can pay all of the rent in arrears, any additional rent that is owing as of the date the tenant makes the payment, plus the landlord's $150 application fee. If the tenant pays this amount before an order is issued, the part of the application terminating the tenancy and evicting the tenant for arrears of rent will be discontinued. If an order is issued, the tenant can pay all of the rent in arrears, any additional rent that is owing as of the date the tenant makes the payment, plus any costs the Tribunal has ordered the tenant to pay. The tenant must pay this amount before the order becomes enforceable. If they do, the part of the order terminating the tenancy and evicting the tenant for arrears of rent will be void. To discontinue an application or void an order, the tenant can pay the amount owing either to the landlord, or to the Tribunal in trust.

4.

If you have any questions about the law related to terminating tenancies and how it applies to this notice, you may contact the Ontario Rental Housing Tribunal at 416-645-8080 or toll-free at 1-888-332-3234. Or, you may visit the Tribunal's web site at www.orht.gov.on.ca for further information.
