Lease renewals


If your tenancy is covered under the Residential Tenancy Agreement, your landlord cannot force you to re-sign a lease, or require you to commit to another full-year if you have already fulfilled the lease agreement terms from your initial lease.

In Ontario, after one year has passed from the lease start date, your lease automatically renews and rolls over to a month-to-month lease. Just like coming to the end of a 1-year lease, you still are required to give 60 days’ written notice if you wish to end your month-to-month lease.
