Get Rid of Your Tenant Problems

Even though you carefully performed your due diligence screening your new tenants with their previous landlord references, their employment references and credit checks – as an experienced landlord or a new landlord, more often than not, you will experience tenant problems.

If you are a landlord and haven’t faced any tenant problems, you are one of the lucky few, however and unfortunately, every landlord, experienced or not, eventually experiences tenant problems.

Other tenant problems include: unreasonably dirty premises and having too many people living in one space. When tenant problems relates directly to non-payment of rent or continual late payment of rent, you have the option of following the eviction process. When problems shift into other areas, the process becomes more challenging.

Handling Tenant Problems

It is your responsibility as a landlord to ensure avoidable problems do not occur after a property is rented. Landlords have to ensure the rental property complies with the rules and regulations for health, safety, housing and maintenance, municipal property standards and zoning bylaws, fire safety regulations and building codes. If the rental property fails to meet these standards at any point during the tenancy, the landlord must make the necessary repairs.

On the other hand, when asking your tenant to clean up and make repairs to an exceptionally dirty or damaged rental property, a simple verbal or written request (or politely worded warning) might get results. For tenant problems that violate local by-laws, landlords often call the police. In these situations, a police warning or fine may convince offending tenants or neighbours to stop breaking any noise, parking or garbage by-laws.

If initial attempts to resolve your tenant problems fail, you may need to formalize your complaint through the Residential Tenancy Branch (RTB). When the communication between you and your tenant breaks down completely, proof and witnesses will be needed to demonstrate blame and establish compensation, if in order. For example, offended neighbours or other tenants might help you support claims against noisy tenants.

Tenant Problems – What to do When Tenants Don’t Pay Their Rent

When tenants fail to pay the rent, it is important to act quickly. When this happens, you can serve your tenant with an eviction notice. You can serve this notice as soon as the tenant’s rent is late. Click the link for more information:

The Residential Tenancy Act in BC provides that a landlord may end a tenancy where the tenant is repeatedly late paying rent. Three (3) late payments are the minimum number sufficient to justify an eviction notice under these provisions.

It does not matter whether the late payments were consecutive or whether one or more rent payments have been made on time between the late payments. However, if the late payments are far apart an arbitrator may determine that, in the circumstances, the tenant cannot be said to be “repeatedly” late. A landlord who fails to act in a timely manner after the most recent late rent payment may be determined by an arbitrator to have waived reliance on this provision.

Procedures and paperwork are extremely important when dealing with tenant problems that involve cases of rent non-payment. If you have a valid reason to terminate a tenancy but make a minor mistake in the paperwork, the Tribunal in BC may not uphold the action.

Further, your tenant can submit an application to the RTB if you don’t make repairs or improvements or fail to provide services as a condition of a rent increase. Your tenant may also apply for a rent reduction if municipal taxes have been lowered or if a building service or facility is reduced or removed and you do not reduce the rent.

Emergencies and Repairs

An emergency repair is required when something in the rental property has broken and the health or safety of your tenant is in danger or the building or property is at risk until repairs can be made. By law, as the landlord you should handle and pay for emergency repairs.

At the beginning of the tenancy it is a good idea to inform the tenant that it is their responsibility to purchase content insurance. This insurance will cover damage to your tenant’s belongings resulting from a problem in the property.

In some situations, if you are not available and repairs must be performed immediately to reduce personal risk or property damage, your tenant can authorize the repair work. Repairs can also be authorized by an order from the RTB.

Solve Your Tenant Problems

You can take action to solve your tenant problems and evict your tenant if the tenant has failed to pay the rent, has caused unreasonable damage, or has bothered you or another tenant. You may also evict your tenant if you or an immediate family member (parent, son or daughter of you or your spouse only) wants to move into the property, or if you sell the rental property and the new owner or the owner’s immediate family wants to move into the property.

If you have the necessary building permits, you can end a tenancy to carry out major renovations or demolish the property. The RTB takes eviction disputes very seriously and so you must make sure you have legal reason to end the tenancy. Tenants do have the right to dispute a Notice to End Tenancy by applying for dispute resolution if they suspect the notice is not permitted by the RTB.

If you have attempted to resolve your tenant problems and perhaps provide your tenant with a second chance, but your tenant still continues to breach your tenancy agreement or the Residential Tenancy Act then speak to a tenancy law specialist at our Company for suggestions and advice regarding your tenant problems and how to evict a tenant quickly. We offer free consultation and we will explain the eviction process to you and how you can evict a tenant quickly and legally. Contact us today 604-812-3718 or

Our Company knows firsthand that finding a good tenant is a time-consuming process and the consequences that come with choosing the wrong type of tenant can be very costly.  Many property owners do not have the time or experience to perform a proper background check to thoroughly screen prospective tenants.

Finding the best tenant can be offset by a property owner’s circumstance to have the property rented in a hurry. While your time to show the property, accept and review applications and do background checks may be limited, a hasty decision on your part can cost you money in the long run. If the wrong tenant moves in, you may end up losing money due to the tenant not paying rent, the tenant causing damages and other tenancy issues and tenant problems that will most likely arise if you do not choose your tenant wisely.

Evicting a tenant is also a time consuming process in BC that can take several months with the Tenancy Branch and the eviction process can cost you thousands of dollars out of pocket especially if the tenant chooses to delay and pro-long the eviction process by the tenant applying for a Dispute Resolution with the Tenancy Branch to avoid being evicted.

Tips on Finding Good Tenants:

  1. If you can afford a possible rent loss while waiting to rent out your property, take the extra time to make the right choice of tenant.
  2. You should thoroughly research a prospective tenant before making a final decision. Getting candidates to fill in a rental application and properly screening for applicant suitability before accepting a new tenant are vital. If you accept tenants without screening and verifying their information, terminating the rental agreement may be difficult even if you discover that they provided false information.
  3. You will want to find out as much as you can legally about prospective tenants. Check their financial suitability through a credit bureau report. To access a credit report on a prospective tenant you must be a member of a credit bureau. In many areas information beyond basic financial data was previously available in a credit bureau report. However, in many areas this information is no longer being collected.
  4. There are private tenant screening services that will provide information that can be used to assess potential tenants that goes beyond the basic financial data. Such information may include rental payment habits and judicial decisions from landlords, non-profit housing corporations and collection agencies and a scoring tool.
  5. Checks for Screening Tenants
    1. Check the applicant’s credit bureau history and banking history.
    2. Confirm the applicant’s employment situation.
    3. Check the applicant’s tenancy history/evictions, if available.
    4. Check court records, if available.
    5. Check the applicant’s references and consider contacting previous landlords back two or three tenancies.
