Example: If the weekly rent increases from $400 to $500 18 months after the start of the rental, the landlord can only ask the tenant to pay an amount that brings the total loan to $US 2,000 or less. RTA needs an accurate statement of who contributed to the loan to ensure that the repayment process runs smoothly at the end of a lease agreement. The contract between the principal tenant and the subtenant can be classified, depending on the exact circumstances, either as a housing rental agreement or as a common law contract. Roommates strongly recommend using the standard residential tenancy agreement form. If tenants change and rental loan contracts change during a lease, a bond contributor change (Form 6) must be sent to RTA. Everyone must sign this form, including the manager/owner. The RTA Dispute Resolution Service offers a free telephone mediation service to help the parties resolve a rental dispute. The owner may not refuse to give consent inappropriately. As a general rule, the lessor can only refuse consent if the addition of a new tenant would lead to overcrowding or a violation of the rental agreement. To add a new tenant, use the Joint Tenancy Agreement Change form.
If there is a change of tenant in a joint tenancy agreement, RTA should be notified by completing a « Modification of Joint Loan Agreement » form. The form must be signed by the arriving tenant, the outgoing tenant, the existing tenants and the landlord. The form can only be used if at least one original tenant remains on the premises. As a general rule, the tenant is reimbursed in full if the conditions of the contract have not been violated and if the lessor has not suffered any costs incurred by the tenant. If it is a bond loan, the tenant must apply to the Department of Housing and Public Works to approve the amendment before sending the form to the RTA. In this situation, the primary tenant is actually the owner of the subtenant. The agreement should make it clear that the subtenant is exclusively used (e.g.B bedroom) and co-used (e.g.B. bathroom, kitchen). Before the primary tenant can sublet to a subtenant, he or she must obtain the agreement of the landlord.. . .
