Please note that most commercial leases in Canada come with strict terms not often favorable to the tenants. Landlords get the upper hand and are mostly backed by law when evicting a commercial tenant. However, there are some very rare instances where the commercial tenant may enjoy certain privileges. Contact Salahi Paralegal today to get a consultation on where you stand as an evicted commercial tenant.

Residential Tenancy Law in Ontario

Provinces in Canada are in charge of the residential tenancy law. The law governs the obligation, responsibility, and rights of every tenant and landlord in Canada.

This fundamental piece of legislation protects the interest of both the landlord and tenant. The tenancy law also creates an unbiased administrative forum where landlord-tenant disputes can be resolved accordingly.

Both the landlord and tenant have the right to be subject to the laws under the Residential Tenancies Act.


Evicting a Tenant

Landlords are within their rights to evict tenants of commercial leases when there is a material breach of the lease.

In most cases, landlords get breaches involving non-payment or delayed payment of rent. Many times, tenants get evicted for a material breach of terms on their lease agreements.

Eviction for non-payment of rent

Landlords can react to the failure of rent in one of two ways. Under the Commercial Tenancies Act, landlords are within their rights to gain access to the premises, seize, and sell the tenant’s properties. This method of handling eviction for non-payment of rent comes without notifying the tenant. However, landlords must notify their tenants at least five days before selling the retrieved property.

Landlords can evict the tenant and/or terminate their lease. Most contracts do not require a notice for lease contract termination as a result of non-payment of rent. Secondly, a landlord may choose to access the premises to simply change the locks.

The lock-changing alternative mandates the landlord to wait until after 16 days of the due rent. Contact a legal representative at Salahi Paralegal for more information on commercial tenancies.

Eviction for a material breach of the lease

Commercial leases make tenants take responsibility for a lot on the premises. Landlords are within their rights to terminate the lease and/or reclaim properties when tenants fail to adhere to their obligations. Nonetheless, the landlord is also restricted to certain obligations under the Ontario Commercial Act. Tenants can only know when they’ve breached their contract when they hire legal help.

Landlords can forward their applications to small claims courts where judges get to rule the cases accordingly.

Ontario judges handle cases involving a material breach of the lease. Tenants are allowed to argue their cases during trials even when the landlord applies for the small claims court.
