ON Notice to Terminate a Tenancy Early – Form N5
As a landlord in Ontario, you can use this eviction form for any tenant who is not in compliance with the terms and conditions of your lease or rental agreement. While it does not cover situations in which a tenant has fallen into rental arrears, it does cover situations in which a tenant has caused damage to the property, disturbed neighbors, other tenants, and/or the landlord’s peaceful enjoyment, and/or violated house, health, or safety standards.
Use this Ontario Notice to Terminate a Tenancy Early if you have one or more tenants refusing to abide by the terms and conditions of your lease or tenancy agreement.
Who: An Ontario landlord may serve this notice to any tenant who is in breach of any section of their lease or rental agreement.
What: This form is used to give tenants notice of early lease termination due to their refusal to abide by the terms and conditions of the lease or rental agreement. It applies to tenants, occupants, and/or guests of tenants who have deliberately caused damage to the premises, have an overabundance of occupants in violation of the lease and/or health and safety standards, and/or who have disturbed another tenant, neighbor, or the landlord’s enjoyment.
When: You will want to serve this notice to your tenant(s) as soon as you are made aware of the lease violation(s). This form may be used for a first or second notice of termination within a six-month period. If it is a first notice, then the tenant should have a given amount of time to correct any problems, make any repairs, and come into full compliance with the lease. If this is not done, then you can proceed by serving them an Ontario 10 Day Notice to End Tenancy Early form.
