Notice for Tenants
As winter approaches, now are the time to check and ensure door and window locks operate correctly. As the weather gets colder, these mechanisms can seize or easily jam. Thus, a little WD-40 and inspection for excessive wear can ensure the locks can secure the property all season long.
Set up a pre-authorized regular withdrawal from your account. You won’t ever need to set a reminder or
forget a payment this way!
Send your name and complete address to firstname.lastname@example.org, along with a personal void check or pre-authorized debit form obtained from your bank.

- I received an N4 Notice to End a Tenancy Early for Non-Payment of Rent, what does this mean?
Receiving an N4 means that there may be grounds for eviction because the rent is either late, or the rent payment did not process due to an NSF charge. You must pay the rent as soon as possible and no later than the eviction date on the N4. If you pay the rent by the date, the notice is voided. However, be aware that being served multiple N4s may be grounds for other legal proceedings, so best to avoid them altogether! Having N4s on your tenancy record may also negatively impact your rental history.
- Do you issue rental receipts for tax purposes?
Rent receipts are available upon request for tax purposes.
- What methods of payment do you accept for rental payments?
We accept online rent payments through direct withdrawal (most common), post dated cheques and bank drafts/money orders. Cash is not ideal but must be coordinated to ensure that the transaction is secure. Property managers are never involved with rent payments.
- My neighbours are having a party and it is past midnight, what do I do?
Please document and record the time/date/duration of the event. Bylaw and police report numbers are important. Video or sound recordings are helpful. Please report to the property manager.
