Can I break a rental agreement due to unfinished or neglected repairs? Some of which are a danger to my health and safety.

Hello,

Thank you for sharing your situation and question with us.

We can appreciate that you would be very concerned about this situation.

You may be able to find some helpful information in our Settlement.Org How can I end my tenancy early? article.

Here is an excerpt,

There is a problem with the rental property


If your landlord does not follow their responsibilities properly, you can apply to the Landlord and Tenant Board to end your tenancy early.

You have to prove that your landlord violated the Residential Tenancies Act (RTA). You must also prove that the best way to solve the problem is to move out.


We also suggest that you contact the nearest Community Legal Clinic for some advice regarding your situation.

I hope this information is helpful. Please let us know if you have further questions and if there is any follow up to your question/situation.
