A landlord may enter the rental unit in case of emergency without notice, but only if the tenant gives the landlord permission to do so. The landlord may also enter the premises without authorization if he has terminated the tenant and must show the apartment to a potential tenant, or if it is the last day of the lease and the landlord must establish a status report for the unit. A landlord has the right to collect a fee if a tenant does not pay their rent on time. This tax may exceed $10.00 for the first day when the fee is too late, plus an additional $2 per day after for up to $100 per month`s rent. The landlord is required to tell the tenant in writing if they wish to collect a late fee. Termination by lessor (buyer or lessor intends to move to a rental unit) (form 11A) (new effective date March 1, 2013) A lessor must use this form if he terminates a lease contract because he intends to move into the unit. If a landlord offers a tenant an extension of a temporary rent, the tenant must sign the extension and return it to the landlord at least 2 months before the term expires. If the tenant does not do so, the tenancy agreement is considered terminated at the end of the period. Tenants cannot cancel the move during a fixed-term lease, but they may transfer or sublet their lease to another person who has been approved by the landlord. A lessor can legally terminate a lease only for specific and valid reasons under local law, and cannot do so simply because the term of the lease has expired.

The assignment or subletting of the lease (form 3) Landlords must use this form when allowing a tenant to sublet or assign his lease. This form is accompanied by a copy of the current lease. If a fixed-term lease becomes a monthly lease in the circumstances mentioned above, the lessor is not in a position to compel a tenant to sign another lease or accept it for another limited period. If a lease is renewed, all other terms of the tenancy agreement remain the same except for a rent increase, unless agreed by the landlord and tenant. While a tenant is still required to pay the rent in full and in a timely manner, a landlord is now temporarily prohibited from paying a late fee if the tenant does not pay the rent. This prohibition applies regardless of whether the lease allows the lessor to collect late fees in general. Tenants have the legal right to award or sublet their fixed-term tenancy agreement. The landlord has the right to accept the new tenant`s application before it is completed. Owners must have a good reason to refuse a transfer or a request for omission. A lessor may charge the original tenant a one-time administrative fee of up to $75 for the transfer or sublease as compensation for the lessor`s costs related to the liquidation of the transaction. If the lessor finds that there is no valid reason to withhold the tenant`s deposit and accrued interest, it must be returned to the tenant with a period of no more than 14 days after the end of the lease.
