ON 10 Day Notice to End Tenancy Early – Form N7
The Ontario 10 Day Notice to End Tenancy Early form is used when a landlord wishes to end a lease before it has termed. This form can be served to the tenant if they are not abiding with the terms and conditions of the lease, but this form is not used in cases of rental arrears.
If you are a landlord in Ontario, you may begin the eviction process by giving your tenants ten days’ notice to vacate the premises if they have been acting in violation of the terms of your lease or rental agreement. With the Ontario 10 Day Notice to End Tenancy Early form, you can legally begin the eviction process in earnest.
Who: Landlords in Ontario may serve this form to any tenant who is not in compliance with the terms and conditions of their rental agreement or lease. Once served, the tenant must vacate the premises within 10 days, or the landlord will be within their rights to begin the eviction process.
What: This eviction form is to be used if a tenant, occupant, or guest of a tenant on the premises has caused any damages to the property, has put another person in danger, misused or abused the property, or disturbed a tenant, neighbor, or landlord’s peaceful enjoyment. With this form, the landlord may give proper warning that the tenant must quit the property within 10 days of being served notice.
When: Unlike some other notices, which may require a waiting period, this eviction notice can and should be served as soon as you are made aware of any lease violations. You may not, however, begin forcible eviction proceedings until after the 10 days stipulated in the notice have passed. Furthermore, if you serve the notice by mail, you should add a minimum of three business days to the notice to ensure receipt of the form.
IMPORTANT: The 10 Day Notice to End Tenancy Early form is not to be used in cases in which a tenant is in rental arrears. You will need a different form for this situation, and notification deadlines may differ, as well.
