What we're about

You can give this notice to the tenant for the following reasons:

Reason 1: The tenant, the tenant’s guest or another occupant of the rental unit substantially interfered with another tenant’s or your:

• reasonable enjoyment of the residential complex, or

• interfered with another lawful right, privilege or interest of the landlord or other tenants.

If you live in the same building as the tenant and the building has three or fewer residential units you can give the tenant a Form N7 Notice to End your Tenancy for Causing Serious Problems in the Rental Unit or Residential Complex instead of a Form N5. The Form N7 cannot be voided and it has a shorter notice period.

Reason 2: The tenant, the tenant’s guest or another occupant of the rental unit wilfully or negligently damaged the rental unit or the residential complex.

• If you are giving this notice for Reason 2 and you believe you can prove the damage was caused wilfully (in other words, the person caused the damage deliberately), you can give the tenant a Form N7 Notice to End your Tenancy for Causing Serious Problems in the Rental Unit or Residential Complex. The Form N7 cannot be voided and it has a shorter notice period.

• If you are unsure whether you can prove to the LTB that the damage was done wilfully, you should use the Form N5.

Reason 3: The number of people living in the rental unit is more than permitted by health, safety or property standards.
