Landlord Updates - Tenancy Laws in Victoria BC

The following tenancy laws have resumed:
 
  • A landlord can now issue a Notice to End Tenancy for any reason (other than unpaid or late payment rent).
  • Landlords with existing orders for eviction can take them to the courts beginning July 2, 2020, for enforcement and can enforce a writ order effective immediately.
  • Landlords can enter a rental suite with 24-hour notice and do not need the tenant’s consent. They are expected to follow health guidelines like physical distancing, cleaning and wearing masks when appropriate.
  • The change also allows for personal service of documents to resume.
 
Landlords’ ability to restrict access to common spaces for COVID-19 related health reasons remains.
