Tenant application form  

If your tenancy application has been successful the following information will be useful to you as a new tenant.

Insurance information

It is up to a landlord to insure their rental property against any damage, either through accident or otherwise. That insurance will usually be for the benefit only of the landlord. As a tenant you should arrange insurance to protect your contents and cover liability for damage to your landlord’s property. Your landlord’s insurance policy does not protect your belongings. Under the Residential Tenancies Act (RTA), tenants are liable for any damage they, or their invited guests, cause for any reason. Even if you are not named on the tenancy agreement, you should have:

  • A contents insurance policy to protect your belongings.
  • A third-party liability policy to protect you from any damage that you or your guests may cause to the property.

If an insurance company pays out to a landlord for damage and believes that a tenant is liable for that damage, the insurance company may seek compensation from the tenant. Third-party liability insurance may protect you in this situation. Speak to insurance companies for details on their policies, or download our What insurance do I need form.

Troubleshooting

Before calling for assistance or maintenance please download the Troubleshooting checklist as a PDF. This information will provide you with practical suggestions about how to first eliminate any potential causes for issues such as lack of power, hot water supply, faulty shower, oven or toilet.

Remember, if any maintenance or damage repair is required because of tenant negligence, all costs for repairs shall be the responsibility of the tenant. If an appointment has been confirmed for maintenance and the contractor is unable to gain access to the property, the tenant may be charged for that callout.
