When can my landlord evict me?

  • Your landlord must have a legal reason to do so and it must be listed in the Residential Tenancies Act.
  • Your landlord can evict you for any one of the following reasons:
  • You don’t pay your rent, or you frequently pay your rent late.
  • You or your guest do something illegal in your unit or building.
  • You cause excessive damage to the apartment or building.
  • You or your guest unreasonably disturb the landlord or other tenants in the building.
  • You have too many people living in the unit. In this case, “too many” means a number that is against health, safety or housing standards.
  • You lied about your income when you applied to rent the unit.
  • The owner or a member of the owner’s family wants to move into your apartment. In this case, “family” means spouse, child, parent, spouse’s child, spouse’s parent or a caregiver for any of them.
  • The owner will destroy the building, make extensive repairs that require the unit to be empty, or change the unit so that it is no longer used as housing.

A landlord cannot evict you for these reasons:

  • You have children, or your children are noisy.
  • You have pets (unless it disturbs others).
  • You ask for repairs.
You can contact a legal clinic or housing help center for more information. To find help in your area, go to Services Near Me.
