When Should You Serve a Notice of Termination on your Tenant?

Every application to the Ontario Landlord and Tenant Board seeking to evict a tenant must start by serving the tenant with a Landlord and Tenant Board approved Notice of Termination.

There is currently a backlog at the Landlord and Tenant Board of six months or more to get a hearing date.

With that in mind, you should serve a notice of termination on your tenant on the first possible day to do so.

For example, if rent is due on the first of the month, and it the rent is not paid, I recommend serving the N4 Notice of Termination on the tenant of the second day of the month.
