Eviction for Failure to Pay Rent Interpretation Guideline 11
This Guideline deals with applications based on a tenant’s failure to pay rent. (See also Guideline 10 on “Procedural Issues regarding Eviction Applications”).
Method of Ordering Arrears
If the landlord’s application for termination based on arrears of rent is granted, the tenant will be ordered to pay: a) rent arrears up to the termination date in the notice of termination, and b) lump sum compensation for use of the rental unit from the termination date in the notice to the order date.
The rent deposit and interest owing thereon will be deducted from the arrears and compensation in accordance with subsection 87(4) of Residential Tenancies Act (the “RTA”). Daily compensation will then be ordered from the order date until the tenant vacates.
