Instructions to Landlord - Serving Notices to Vacate (Form 8b & 8d)
The Residential Tenancies Act, 2006
Tenants must get two calendar months' notice to vacate. Notices to vacate are effective on the day before the rent is
due. If the rent is due on the first of each month, a notice to vacate will be effective on the last day of a month, and must be
given one calendar month before the effective date. For example, a notice to vacate for March 31st must be delivered
to the tenant on or before January 31st of that year.
1. Complete this Form and make sufficient copies to give to the tenant(s) and the ORT.
2. Serve the tenant(s), which means get a copy to the tenant(s) by either:
a. Handing a copy to each legal occupant (personal service) - two tenants would mean handing a copy to each tenant,
- OR -
b. Both taping a copy to the front door of the rental unit, AND mailing a copy to the tenant(s) through the postal
delivery service
- OR -
c. Both taping a copy to the front door of the rental unit, AND sending a true copy of the document electronically
(email, text message, and social media).
Personal service is always better, as the person who delivered the notice knows and can say that the tenant(s) got the
notice. Notices served by posting on the door and either mailing or electronically delivering are effective when the
tenant(s) actually get(s) the notice. Mail is deemed to be delivered three business days after it is mailed, and electronic
service is deemed to be delivered on the following business day. The document must be posted on the door on or before
the date that the copy is mailed or sent electronically.
If the tenant(s) dispute(s) the notice to vacate, the tenant(s) must complete the dispute notice at the bottom of the form
and return it to you within 15 days. If the tenant(s) does/do so, and you wish to proceed with eviction, you must apply to
the ORT for a possession order and establish the validity of the reason for the notice to vacate at a hearing.
You may apply to the ORT for a possession order at any time after serving a Notice to Vacate. If the tenant(s) does/do
not dispute the reason for eviction within 15 days, the tenant(s) is/are deemed to have accepted the notice to vacate and
must move out. After the 15 days has expired, you may apply for a possession order based on an undisputed notice to
vacate.
With your application (Form 9a and a $50 fee), provide:
1. A copy of the Notice to Vacate to show exactly what was given to the tenant(s); and
2. A Certificate of Service, signed by the person who served the tenant(s), and completed to say how the tenant(s)
was/were served with the Notice to Vacate, and
3. Evidence supporting your claim. Photographic evidence must be numbered with a detailed explanation underneath
each image and submitted on one document (PDF or Word).
The ORT will schedule a hearing and provide you with a notice of hearing showing the time and place of the hearing.
Write the same reasons for eviction on the hearing notice. Deliver a completed copy of the hearing notice and all
evidence to the tenant(s) to let them know what you want, and when and where they should appear for the hearing.
Serve the notice of hearing in the same manner as described above for the notice to vacate.
