Section 30 of the Landlord & Tenant Act
Landlord Right to Oppose Tenancy
- A landlord can oppose an application by a tenant for a new tenancy if the tenant has failed to maintain the accommodation in good repair, has caused damage to the accommodation, has consistently paid rent late or has breached the terms and conditions of the tenancy agreement.
Change in Premises
- A landlord can oppose a tenant's request to renew a tenancy if she plans to demolish, substantially renovate or use the premises as a primary residence. A landlord can offer to provide a tenant with alternative accommodations in a comparable rental dwelling, if the terms and conditions of the tenancy meet the needs and requirements of the tenant, as identified in the application for a new tenancy.
Establishment of Business on the Premises
- To oppose a tenant's application for a new tenancy based on the establishment of a business, a landlord must have controlling interest in the business or company. A landlord has controlling interest if he has the authority to make decisions regarding the appointment or removal of company members without the consent of other members, and owns at least 50 percent of the company.
