Lease information

The standard lease

A lease creates a contract between a landlord and a tenant when renting a residential property. We highly recommended a written lease because it clearly specifies what a landlord and tenant are agreeing to when renting a property.

Assign a lease

A lease agreement may require that get your landlord’s permission before assigning your lease to someone else. To get consent, you will need to complete a Request for Consent to Assign form and serve it to your landlord.

Ending a lease

We offer printable Notice of Termination forms that landlords and tenants can use. If this form is used, a signature is required. Landlords use the Notice of Termination to Tenant form, and tenants use the Notice of Termination to Landlord form.

A tenant that is the victim of domestic violence can end their lease early.

If your landlord asks you for documentation, you may provide them a signed Third-Party Declaration.

Roommate agreement

When more than one tenant is named on the lease agreement, they are all equally responsible for the rental unit, any damages, and the full rent amount. We encourage completing a roommate agreement together so there is a clear understanding of household rules and expectations.

Inspections

Inspection report

Before a tenant moves in or out, the landlord and tenant should walk through the rental unit together and inspect it thoroughly. An Accommodation Inspection Report will provide a record of the condition of the rental property from the beginning to the end of the lease.

Security deposits

Pay a security deposit

A tenant may pay a security deposit to the landlord or directly to a Service New Brunswick service centre. A Certificate of deposit (receipt) will be mailed to both the landlord and tenant.

Apply for the return of your security deposit

Applying online as soon as you move out is the quickest and easiest way to have your security deposit returned to you. Your application will be processed at the end of your lease term.  All tenants named on the Certificate of Deposit must apply for the return of their portion of the security deposit separately.

Transfer a security deposit

You can transfer your security deposit to another rental unit or another tenant. 

Submit a claim against security deposit

If the rental unit is dirty or damaged, or there is unpaid rent, utilities or late fees, landlords can make a claim against the security deposit. To do this, a Security Deposit Claim form must be submitted to the Residential Tenancies Tribunal within 7 days of the end of the lease.
