Common Law Lease Agreements for Residential Property

Following my last post, I got a few questions that made me aware that my previous post about residential lease agreements , was not clear enough.

This will be a quick in an attempt to clarify stuff.

You can’t have a residential lease agreement that is based only on common law. Because in the process of years of legislations there are Acts such a the Rental Housing Act 50 of 1999 and Regulations created by each province, that must be adhered to.

These can change common law, which means common law is no longer applicable due to the Acts, and give new guidelines on what to do and what not to do.

Because these are acts and therefore law, writing a residential lease agreement based on common law only, may not comply with acts that have be written to override common law and therefore the worst that can happen is that the lease may be found none compliant and null and void.

It is highly advised that for the purposes of creating property a good residential lease agreement, one should use a professional person to get help.
