Landlords can evict a tenant renting for non payment of rent at any time. Landlords can also evict tenants at the end of their lease term if the landlord wants sell the place, or want the place for their own or for his/her immediate family or someone who will provide care services to the landlord or a member of the landlord’s immediate family, if the person who will be receiving the care services lives in the same building or complex. However, as of August 2017, new rental rules have come into effect whereby a landlord cannot evict a tenant on the pretext of own family use. In such a situation, if it is found that the landlord leased the property to another tenant within one year of lease termination with the previous tenant, he/ she can face up to $25,000 in fine.
