Bc Tenancy Agreement Dispute

If you do not wish to go through RTB`s dispute resolution process, but would like to report a rental violation issue in the residential area, you can contact RTB, who will investigate certain issues and sanction the landlord if necessary. RtB will investigate whether a landlord: If the landlord intentionally fails to return ownership of the housing unit to the tenant, the rent will decrease until the property is delivered, and the tenant may (i) terminate the lease with at least five days` written notice to the landlord, upon termination of which the landlord must repay all rents and prepaid deposits, or (ii) request the performance of the Rental Agreement by the Lessor. If the tenant wishes, they can sue for the ownership of the housing unit against the landlord or a person who is an illegal owner and recover the damage they suffered. If a person`s failure to deliver possession is intentional and not in good faith, an injured person may recover from that person the actual harm he or she suffered and reasonable attorneys` fees. If the lease does not require the tenant to take out tenant insurance, the landlord must provide the tenant with written notice prior to entering into the lease stating that (i) the landlord is not responsible for the tenant`s personal property, (ii) the landlord`s insurance coverage does not cover the tenant`s personal property, and (iii) whether the tenant wishes to protect his or her personal property, he must take out tenant insurance. The notice informs the tenant that that tenant`s insurance does not cover flood damage and advises the tenant to contact the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) or visit the FEMA National Flood Insurance Program websites or the Virginia Department of Conservation and Recreation`s Flood Risk Information System; to find out if the property is located in a particular flood risk area. The landlord`s failure to make such a notification does not affect the validity of the rental agreement. If the tenant requests a translation of the message from the English language into another language, the landlord can help the tenant get a translator or refer the tenant to an electronic translation service.

The landlord does not charge a fee for such assistance or transfer. If the landlord has not signed a written tenancy agreement and has not given it to the landlord by the landlord, the landlord`s unconditional acceptance of the rent gives the lease the same effect as if it had been signed and delivered by the landlord. If the tenant does not sign and deliver a written rental agreement signed by the landlord and given to him, the acceptance of the property or the payment of the rent without reservation gives the lease the same effect as if it had been signed and delivered by the tenant. Where a lease which has entered into force in accordance with this Section provides for a term of more than one year, it shall be effective only for one year.

Any written notification to the tenant is made in accordance with § 55.1-1202. The tenant has the right to remove his or her personal property from the living unit, premises or storage area at reasonable times within the 24-hour period following termination or at other reasonable times until the landlord has disposed of the tenant`s remaining personal property.

Nothing in this subsection shall be construed as conferring on a third party designated by the lessee the power to challenge the actions of the landlord in which the notice was sent in accordance with this subsection. The landlord`s failure to notify a third party designated by the tenant does not affect the validity of a judgment against the tenant. B. Tenants who are entitled to terminate a tenancy agreement under Subsection A must do so by notifying the landlord of a written notice of termination that will take effect on a date specified in that written notice, that date being at least 30 days after the earliest date on which the next rent payment is due and payable after the date of written notice, must lie.

In the event that a lawsuit is pending in court for breach of the lease or non-compliance by the tenant and the landlord prevails, the court will grant the landlord and tenant a monetary judgment for the requested release, which may include: (i) the rent due and due on the date of the court, as agreed in the lease; (ii) other fees and charges agreed in the Rental Agreement; (iii) the default charges agreed in the Rental Agreement; (iv) reasonable attorneys` fees as contractually agreed in the lease or as provided by law, unless the tenant proves in such an action by a balance of evidence that the tenant`s failure to pay or release rent was reasonable; (v) the costs of the proceeding as contractually agreed in the Rental Agreement or provided for by law; and (vi) damage to the living unit or premises. The Lease Tribunal is the second stage of RTB`s dispute resolution body. A dispute may be brought before the tenancy court for one of the following reasons: If the lease requires the tenant to inform the landlord of a longer planned absence of more than seven days and the tenant does not, the landlord can claim the actual damages from the tenant. If the tenant is absent for more than seven days, the landlord may enter the unit at times reasonably necessary to protect the tenant`s property and possessions. The rental agreement is deemed to have been terminated by the landlord at the time of abandonment by the tenant. If the landlord cannot determine if the premises have been abandoned by the tenant, the landlord must send the tenant a written notice in accordance with § 55.1-1202 asking the tenant to inform the landlord in writing within seven days that the tenant intends to use the premises. If the tenant gives such written notice to the landlord or if the landlord otherwise determines that the tenant remains in the occupation of the premises, the landlord will not treat the premises as abandoned. Unless the landlord receives written notice from the tenant or otherwise determines that the tenant continues to occupy the premises, there is a rebuttable presumption that the premises were abandoned by the tenant after seven days from the date of the landlord`s notification to the tenant and the lease will be deemed terminated on that day. .
