Use this form to terminate the tenancy at the end of the term, if you or a member of your immediate family wants to move into the rental unit or if the purchaser or a member of the purchaser’s immediate family wants to move into the rental unit.

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 by the termination date you put in this notice, you can apply to the Ontario Rental Housing Tribunal for an order terminating the tenancy and evicting the tenant.

1

From:

Fill in the landlord’s name and address. If there is more than one landlord, fill in the names of all the landlords.

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. You must give the tenant this notice at least 60 days before the last day of the rental period or, if the tenancy is for a fixed term (such as a one year lease), at least 60 days before the last day of the fixed term. The termination date must be the last day of the rental period or the last day of the tenancy agreement, if the agreement is for a fixed term. 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. She is terminating the tenancy because her stepdaughter will move in. Theresa must give Bill at least 60 days notice of termination. She decides that she wants Bill to move out of the rental unit by August 31, 2000. The latest date that Theresa could give Bill the notice would be July 2, 2000. Once this notice has been given, the tenant may terminate the tenancy on an earlier date by giving you at least 10 calendar days written notice of the tenant’s intent to do so.

Reason for this Notice:

You can give this notice to the tenant for either of the following reasons: (1) You or a member of your immediate family wants to move into the rental unit. You have entered into an Agreement of Purchase and Sale and the purchaser or a member of their immediate family wants to move into the rental unit. (You can only terminate the tenancy for this reason if the complex contains three or fewer residential units; however, this restriction does not apply if the units are in a condominium building.)

(2)

The landlord or purchaser’s “immediate family” includes the landlord or purchaser’s child or parent, the landlord or purchaser’s spouse or same-sex partner, the spouse’s child or parent or the same sex-partner’s child or parent.
