Can I work out a temporary tenancy with my new tenant without paying for their relocation?

Under the ordinance, you may establish a temporary tenancy with a new tenant that does not require relocation payments if the following are true:

  • You will be recovering the unit to occupy as your primary residence when the temporary tenancy ends;
  • You previously occupied the unit as your primary residence prior to the temporary tenancy beginning;
  • The temporary tenancy lasts longer than 30 days but less than 12 months;
  • The beginning of the temporary tenancy, you provide the tenant with a written statement that includes the length of the tenancy and that the tenancy may be terminated at the end of the temporary tenancy period.
