A Notice of Lease Violation, or Notice of Violation of a Tenancy Agreement, is a document through which a landlord can inform a tenant that they are in violation of their lease. In a Notice of Lease Violation, a landlord informs the tenant what the violation is and what portion of the lease is being violated. In other words, a Notice of Lease Violation is may be sent to a tenant in order to keep a paper trail of tenant's behaviour and prior to sending a Notice to End a Tenancy, which is an official legal notice that may lead a tenant to be evicted from their unit. Should a landlord wish to terminate the tenancy, their provincial or territorial tenant board may provide a Notice to End a Tenancy or other equivalent document.
If a tenant is late to pay the rent, although it constitutes a lease violation, a landlord may use the Late Rent Notice instead.
Within a Notice of Lease Violation, there is often only basic information included: names and identifying information of the parties (landlord and tenant), the date the lease was signed and the violation and portion of the lease that is being violated.
