Rights and Responsibilities
Updated: Jan 20, 2020
When living in Conestoga Estates or any land lease community it is important that you know your rights and responsibilities.
The Ontario Residential Tenancies Act 2006 applies to land lease communities. Rented lots are covered by most of the same rules that apply to other types of residential rental units. However, there are a few rules that only apply to land lease communities.
The Landlord Tenant Board for Ontario has an excellent brochure for land lease communities that explains both your responsibilities and the landlord's as it relates to rules, maintenance and repairs. It can be found at http://www.sjto.gov.on.ca/documents/ltb/Brochures/Mobile%20Home%20Parks%20and%20Land%20Lease%20Communities%20(EN).pdf
In addition the brochure covers other topics including selling or renting your home, rent and other charges, rent increases, and terminating a tenancy,
I encourage all Conestoga Estates tenants and potential buyers to review the brochure.
