Air B&B and Cottage Rentals Exempt from Residential Tenancies Act

Air B&B and Cottage Rentals

You don’t want to rent out your basement or your cottage using AirB&B only to find that the person says that they are now Tenants of yours month to month under Ontario legislation.

Let’s have a look at the Residential Tenancies Act:

“Exemptions from Act

This Act does not apply with respect to,

living accommodation intended to be provided to the travelling or vacationing public or occupied for a seasonal or temporary period in a hotel, motel or motor hotel, resort, lodge, tourist camp, cottage or cabin establishment, inn, campground, trailer park, tourist home, bed and breakfast vacation establishment or vacation home;”

Let’s have a look at the short form

“living accommodation intended to be provided to the … vacationing public or occupied for a seasonal or temporary period in a … cottage or cabin establishment, … tourist home, bed and breakfast vacation establishment or vacation home;”

So, that’s it, that occupant has to go!
