Roomers and Boarders Agreement

  • In situations where you share a house with the owner or a member of the owner's immediate family (including a fellow student whose parent owns your house), you are not covered by Ontario’s Residential Tenancies Act.
  • To protect your rights and fulfill your responsibilities, you need to create a contract specific to your situation.
  • In cases of dispute, this contract serves as a legal record, so make sure that you cover everything - not only how much you pay for what, but also space allocation and lifestyle issues.
  • The Student Community Relations Office has prepared a sample Roomers and Boarders Agreement to get you started.
