Abstract: The Tenants Guide begins with the process of moving in, with sections on what to look for, the lease, kinds of tenancies, security deposits, subletting, landlord rules, privacy, and illegal rent increases. It moves on to repairs and maitenance, explaining what the responsibilities of the landlord and the tenant are, and what rights the tenant has. Another chapter deals with termination and eviction. A lengthy section on rent review outlines the rules in this complex area. Another section discusses how to organize a tenant association, while yet another looks at the alternatives of co-operatives and non-profit housing. Community listings provide numbers in the Ottawa area.
