How much time or notice you have to give your landlord depends on your rental agreement:
[sam id=”1″ codes=”true”]
- If you pay rent by the day or week, you must give 28 days notice (for example, if you want to leave on March 1, you have to give notice by February 1).
- If you pay rent by the month, you must generally give 60 days notice.
- If your lease is fixed for a period longer than a month, you must generally give 60 days notice.
When you give notice, you have to let your landlord know what day you want to end your tenancy. This must be the last day of the rental period. For example, if you pay rent by the month, the last day of your tenancy must be the last day of the month.
In Ontario, you need to give written notice to your landlord. You can do this by filling out a N9 -Tenant’s Notice to End the Tenancy form from the Landlord and Tenant Board.
