Use Form P: Standard leasing type to display all the conditions for a residential rent. Owners may use Form P, another form of lease or verbal agreement, but the P-sheet terms continue to apply. Due to recent changes to the Residential Rent Act, rent is automatically granted to each tenant with a periodic lease, which means that their tenancy agreement cannot be terminated without the landlord`s valid reason. A tenant can continue to terminate their own tenancy agreement. Fully concluded leases help answer questions that tenants may have in the event of a dispute between landlord and tenant. If a tenant does not pay rent, a landlord must send the tenant a notice of termination for non-payment of rent. If the tenant still does not pay the rent owed, a landlord can usually ask the landlord to terminate the lease because of unpaid rent. Manufactured Home and Land Lease Communities www.gov.ns.ca/snsmr/access/land/residential-tenancies/landlord/manufactured-and-land-lease.asp 1 Nova Scotia Provincial New Release, March 19, 2020, accessed April 22, 2020 novascotia.ca/news/release/?id=20200319004 All annual leases are renewed for an additional year if termination is not granted by the landlord or tenant. In order for the lease to be terminated, the termination must take place three months before the anniversary of the first signing of the lease. If tenants wish to change their lease from one year to the next to a monthly tenancy agreement, they must terminate at least 3 months in advance and their landlord must accept the change.
Landlords can use Form P as a rental agreement for the housing contracts they make available to their tenant for signature. Form P contains all the conditions applicable in a rental agreement for housing contracts, even if another tenancy agreement or verbal agreement is used. Rent is considered to be delayed after a 15-day period in a month-to-month, annual or fixed-term rental agreement. Rent is considered late after a period of 7 days in a week-to-week rent, and the rent is late after a 30-day period for tenants living in old houses. In the case of a large part of the leases, the landlord may, after a period of 15 days, notify the tenant of the full payment of his rent or the evacuation of the property within 15 days of receiving the notification. If the tenant does not take action, a notice of immediate evacuation of the property may be notified.
