BC Residential Tenancy Act changes give more rights to tenants
… It may impact you if you have rental property.
The B.C. government on May 17 amended the Residential Tenancy Act to require landlords to give tenants four months’ notice to end a tenancy in order to demolish, renovate or repair the dwelling.
Previously, landlords could evict a tenant for those reasons by giving two months’ notice. Tenants will continue to be eligible for one month’s worth of compensation in those cases.
