Common Tenant Problems - Renoviction

This section is for discussing Renoviction (eviction for the purpose of renovating the building that tenants are currently living in.)

In addition to this forum there are some terrific information resources available on this topic:

• The RenovictionsTO website has a lot of helpful information regarding renoviction, including a brief overview: "Renovictions: The Basics" to get you up to speed, a guide to Your Rights, and a Renoviction Tracker that we would strongly recommend any tenants facing renoviction to should sign up with.

• From the Federation of Metro Tenants' Associations: Demolitions, Conversions, Renovations and the Residential Tenancies Act.

• From Community Legal Education Ontario (CLEO), Can my landlord make me move out for repairs or renovations?, and perhaps most importantly: Protect your right to move back in later!

How to protect yourself against 'renoviction' as rental markets heat up

Quote
a recent report from Ontario’s Advocacy Centre for Tenants (ACTO) found there has been a 294 per cent increase in landlord applications to evict tenants for renovations or conversions at the province’s Landlord and Tenant Board since 2015-16.

Quote
In most jurisdictions, landlords need the permission of the Landlord and Tenant Board before they can evict tenants for the purpose of renovations.

But many tenants may not know that, and may move out as soon as a landlord asks them to.
