Renting In British Columbia
When it comes to renting, both landlords and tenants have important considerations to make. In B.C. landlords and renters are expected to comply with tenancy laws and with orders of the Residential Tenancy Branch. If you don’t comply, you can potentially face significant monetary penalties. It’s serious business but luckily there are resources available so you can gain the knowledge you need to make good decisions no matter which side of the rental you are on.
The Residential Tenancy Branch and the Residential Tenancy Act
The Residential Tenancy Branch (RTB) offers helpful information to assist you in getting to know the rules and regulations of the Residential Tenancy Act. The Residential Tenancy Branch has information on starting and ending a tenancy, what to do during one, changes to tenancy laws, dispute resolution and other resources. For questions about rent increases, tenancy agreements, and to find helpful tips for landlords and renters, the Residential Tenancy Branch is the place to go. The RTB website even has a helpful tool called the Solution Explorer which helps landlords and tenants to manage and resolve residential tenancy disputes in B.C.
