Property Standards & Residential Tenancies Act

 

 

As of July 1, 2018 the Ontario Ministry of Housing will no longer be investigating

complaints from residential rental tenants regarding property maintenance

issues.  On that date, all municipalities within Ontario will be required to either;

 

1) enact a Property Standards By-Law

    or

2) have staff available/appointed to inspect complaints from residential rental

    tenants against the Maintenance Standards contained within the Residential

    Tenancies Act (RTA)and enforce those standards.

 

As per resolution 2018-073 ENFORCEMENT OF RESIDENTIAL TENANCIES

ACT, Council hereby approves Report No. 2018CT-05 and further, that the

authority to enforce the Residential Tenancies Act (RTA) standards is provided

in the RTA and the Provincial Offences Act and requires municipalities to

adopt a by-law appointing an inspector who shall be responsible for enforcing

the Residential Tenancies Act.

 

By-Law 2018-013 appoints the Municipal Enforcement Officer as an inspector

who shall be responsible for the enforcement of the Residential Tenancies Act

and Ontario Regulation 517/06, as of July 1, 2018.
