British Columbia

Prepare notices to serve on your tenant or your landlord with these downloadable template Landlord and Tenant Notice Forms for British Columbia.

Q. How much notice is required to end a tenancy under the BC Residential Tenancy Act?

A. It depends on the reason for ending the tenancy. If a landlord is ending the tenancy because the tenant hasn't paid the rent, the notice period is 10 days. If the tenant hasn't paid the security deposit within 30 days of the start of the rental, or is repeatedly late paying the rent, the notice period is one month. A tenant must give one month's notice to end a month-to-month tenancy. All notices must be in writing.

Q. How can I be sure I'm giving proper notice to my landlord / tenant?

A. Check with the Residential Tenancy Branch. Their website has information about how notice must be given to end your tenancy, how to determine what the effective date of your notice is, and what special precautions you may need to take to ensure that you don't break the notice rules.

Q. What is the notice period for a rent increase?

A. A landlord in British Columbia must give a tenant three full months' written notice prior to the rent being increased.
