Starting a Tenancy

Before renting a property, all parties involved should be familiar with the regulations put in place for how residential properties are rented in British Columbia.

  • Tenancy agreements: Know what to expect when entering into this kind of agreement
  • Deposits: Get information about the different types of deposits and fees required by landlords
  • Pets: Landlords and tenants should discuss whether pets will be allowed in a rental unit
  • Moving in: Review these landlord and tenant responsibilities to help ensure moving day goes smoothly

Landlords Need To Consider:

Keeping rental properties in pristine condition – they should all local standards.

Carefully review each possible tenant:

  • Ask for proof of identity
  • Thoroughly check all references
  • Contact previous landlords to ask about rental and payment history
  • Conduct a credit check to confirm income and financial suitability
  • Get the names of all persons to be living in the rental unit

Tenants Need To Consider:

If a deposit of any kind is needed pay it in full only after viewing the unit.

Before moving in, walk through the residential rental unit and complete an inspection report with your landlord.

Also consider:

  • Is the agreement with the owner of the property (or the landlord) or is it just an agreement with a roommate (if so, the Residential Tenancy Act does not apply)?
  • Does the agreement allow you to add a roommate without the landlord’s permission?
  • Is the tenancy agreement month-to-month or for a fixed length of time?
  • Is a security or pet damage deposit required?
  • Are things like parking, storage, laundry or utilities included in the tenancy agreement?
  • What are the rules of the building or property?
