Management in Rooming Houses

November 6 @ 9:30 am - 1:00 pm

Rooming houses are a unique form of housing and managing them presents different challenges to managing other types of housing.  They are governed by different provisions within the Residential Tenancies Act (RTA) and they often house people with a wide variety of issues at very close quarters with shared facilities.

  • Difference between rooming house residencies and residential tenancies – legally and practically

  • Rent arrears monitoring
  • Room Inspections
  • House Rules
  • House Meetings
  • Dealing with Behavioural Issues
    • Investigating incidents
    • Case notes
    • Breach of Duty Notice
    • Compliance Orders
  • Dealing with Violent Behaviour
    • Notice to Vacate
    • Notice to Leave
    • Possession Orders
  • Effect of the Human Rights Charter
  • Responsive maintenance requests
  • Dealing with contractors
  • Essential Services

It would be suitable for:

  • New rooming house workers
  • Experienced housing workers that are not familiar with rooming houses
  • Managers of rooming house workers who are not themselves familiar with the responsibilities involved in running rooming houses.
