Rental arrears refers to a situation in which a tenant has failed to pay their agreed rent on time. Full and timely payment of rent is one of a tenant's most basic obligations to their landlord, and failure to do so is grounds for terminating a tenancy.

In a case of rental arrears, there are two options available to the landlord:

  • They can try to negotiate a new payment plan with their tenant;
  • Decide to terminate the tenancy

In the event the landlord wishes to terminate the tenancy, it is essential that the landlord first issue a valid Notice of Rental Arrears to their tenant. A copy of this notice must furnished to the Residential Tenancies Board on the same day it is sent to the tenant.

The Notice of Rental Arrears must clearly state the total amount of rent owed and give the tenant 28 days to pay all back rent in full. If the rent is not repaid within 28 days of the tenant's receipt of the notice, the landlord is entitled to issue a Notice of Termination.
