What Are Leaseholders’ Responsibilities for Maintenance and Repairs?
A tenant must keep their rental unit clean, up to the standard that most people would consider ordinary or normal cleanliness. The tenant is responsible for any repair or damages to the rental property caused by that tenant, the tenant's guest or another person who lives in the rental unit. This includes damage inside the tenant's unit, as well as any common area, such as a hallway, elevator, stairway and driveway or parking area. It does not matter whether the damage was done on intentionally or accidentally - the tenant is responsible. The tenant is not responsible to repair damage caused by normal "wear and tear". A landlord can apply to the Landlord and Tenant Board (LTB) if the tenant has not repaired damage caused by the tenant, the tenant’s guest or another person who lives in the rental unit. If the LTB agrees that the tenant should be held responsible for the damage, the LTB can order the tenant to pay the cost of repairing the damage. The LTB may also order the eviction of the tenant. A tenant should not withhold any part of the rent. A tenant may be evicted if they withhold the rent without getting approval from the LTB, even if the tenant feels the maintenance in the building is poor or that a necessary repair has not been completed.
