The guidelines apply to most residential rental houses covered by the Residential Lease Act (Residential Tenancies Act), but do not apply to social relief houses, long-term care homes, commercial real estate, or new houses that have moved in for the first time since November 15, 2018.
The rate of increase set in the rent increase guidelines is the maximum amount by which landlords may increase tenants’ rents without the approval of the Rental Committee (LTB), and applies to the vast majority of rent increases between January 1, 2022 and December 31, 2022.
The provincial government has frozen the rents of the vast majority of tenants in 2021. In order to support tenants, the provincial government set the rent increase at 0% in 2021.
Rent cannot be forced or automatically increased. The landlord must fill in the correct form and give written notice at least 90 days in advance before he can raise the rent. In the vast majority of cases, the rent increase should not be greater than the limit set in the rent increase guidelines. In addition, we have to wait for the tenants to stay for 12 months, or 12 months since the last rent increase, before the rent can be increased. If the tenant thinks that the landlord’s rent increase is unreasonable, he can dispute it with the Rental Committee (LTB) within 12 months.
The rent freeze will expire on December 31, 2021. Landlords can issue 2022 rent increase notices to tenants before the policy expires.
