The landlord must receive the written notice before the day the rent is due, for the tenant to move out at the end of the following month.

The tenants possessions and furniture shall be moved in and out of the residential property within such hours as may be specified by the Landlord and through designated doors, at the Tenants risk. The Tenant shall be responsible for any damage caused by the Tenant or the Tenant's mover(s) to the residential property or premises. Use of the elevators for moving purposes will be subject to scheduling with the building management.
The Tenant hereby grants the Landlord the authority to remove and dispose of any property or possessions of the Tenant remaining on the premises or in any storage area after the Tenant has vacated the premises and the Landlord shall not be responsible for any loss or damage to the Tenant's property or possessions thereby occasioned. The cost incurred by the Landlord to remove and dispose of such items shall be payable by the Tenant.

an additional person in the rental premises, they shall promptly apply in writing for permission from the landlord for such person to become a occupant. Failure to apply and obtain the necessary approval of the landlord in writing is considered a fundamental breach of this Agreement. The landlord may at his option give immediate notice to end this Agreement or may at his option give notice to the tenant to immediately correct the breach. The landlord has the right to end the tenancy, if the tenant fails to correct the said breach within a reasonable time after having been given written notice by the landlord.
(15). CONDITION OF PREMISES:

Should the tenant notice any item not listed on the move-in form, they have 3 days from the date of move-in inspection to notify the landlord in writing of any defects or damages.
