Residential leasing in BC is widely common and beneficial. It provides options to a landlord to assist with the costs of owning a home and provides tenants the ability to live comfortably without the financial stress of owning a house.
Whether you are a landlord or a tenant, it is essential you understand your rights and obligations and state your intentions in writing. A lot of renters and homeowners do not obtain legal advice on residential leasing matters prior to entering into a lease agreement. This unfortunately, causes problems down the road when a dispute arises between the parties that could have been avoided.
