Being a landlord can be complicated, but also a good way to buy land and have someone else pay all or a portion of your mortgage for you.

If you are considering becoming a landlord be sure to understand how to do it right. Tenancies are protected by law – both tenants and landlords have specific rights and responsibilities. For instance when it comes to giving tenants notice to end a tenancy two months notice must be given if the landlord will be using the property, and the tenant is entitled to one month free rent. If the landlord does not occupy the property in the manner it was agreed to the tenant could be owed up to 12 months rent.
If the landlord wants the tenancy to end in order to do a renovation, it must be a major renovation and the tenant to receive four months notice. Click here.
