Changes to the legislation introduced new responsibilities in 2019 for landlords. Where a landlord ended a tenancy that lasted more than six months, a copy of the NoT was required to be sent to the RTB within 28 days of the tenancy termination date as listed on the Notice.
From 6 July 2022, new legislation came into effect that requires landlords to send a copy of all NoTs to the RTB on the same day the Notice is served on the tenant. The NoT is invalid if this requirement is not met. Further information on this legislation and general information on Notices of Termination can be found by here.
The data presented in the following charts relates to NoTs received by the RTB under the previous process from Q2 2019 - Q2 2022. The data on NoTs received under the new process from Q3 2022 can be found here.
It is important to note, the number of NoTs received should not be interpreted as directly correlating to one landlord/tenant/tenancy. For example, one NoT could be received which relates to multiple tenants in one tenancy or separate NoTs could be received for each tenant.
