If the tenant has signed an Agreement to Terminate a Tenancy and has not vacated the unit by the termination date the landlord within thirty days must file an L3 application to the Board along with a affidavit sworn at the Board stating when the agreement was signed, that the agreement was not signed at the time the tenancy agreement was entered into and that no other agreement was entered into thereafter that would affect the Agreement to Terminate. The Board will issue an order for eviction in the mail which the landlord may then take to the Sheriff for enforcement.

When a tenant vacates a rental unit based on having signed an Agreement to Terminate, they do not have the right of first refusal.

When a rental property is sold and there is a lease in place, the landlord cannot give notice to terminate the tenancy. The new owner would have to honour the existing lease. However, if your tenants are willing to move out earlier, ask them to sign a Form N11 which is a mutual agreement between the landlord and the tenant to terminate the tenancy. This form can be obtained from the Landlord and Tenant Board’s website at www.ltb.gov.on.ca.
