Form N5 Instructions

To complete Form N5, you will need to include the following information:

  1. The names of all the tenants, the landlord's name, and the full address of the rental property.
  2. The date the tenant will be evicted from said property.
  3. Selecting why the tenant is facing eviction from the given options of issues listed on the form. You also have the option to state whether this notice is the first or second time the tenant has been told to vacate the premises. The tenant will then be given seven days to rectify the problem listed and if they fail to do so the landlord is then able to proceed to request a formal eviction.
    • Reason 1 deals with the behavior of the occupants staying at the rental unit who have made living next to them unbearable for others living nearby;
    • Reason 2 pertains to the tenant's use of the property and that it has led to damages beyond the normal day to day use or let it fall into disrepair;
    • Reason 3 argues that the tenant has exceeded the number of listed tenants on the rental agreement and how many persons can safely reside in the dwelling.
  4. The landlord will then need to detail all instances of violations and when they occurred. The final signature section is for the landlord to sign. Alternatively, the form can be signed by a representative on behalf of the property manager.

Included in the paperwork are N5 Form instructions for guidance through the next steps of the review along with instructions for the tenant should they choose to argue against the notice.
