IMPORTANT NOTE --- City of Hamilton Licensing By Laws: City is planning to implement a program of Landlord & Property Licensing for all Rental Housing in Hamilton; incl. Student Housing. This Landlord will apply for any required License & comply with all requirements of any new By Law & Codes (e.g. Electrical Safety, Fire, HVAC etc). New Licensing & By Laws however unreasonable & irrational and subject to potential legal challanges, may require modifications of advertised configurations of the living spaces in the leased Property a.k.a. 1 DWELLING UNIT e.g. limiting number of formal shared kitchens to 1 main shared kitchen (each house i.e. 1 DWELLING UNIT to have only stoves & ovens in ONE shared kitchen), number of bedrooms allowable, and number of parking spaces allowable. Landlord's current advertising on their website & in their all Lease documents reflects the current state (wherein there is no Licensing requirement on Landlords for RENTAL Housing). Landlord will make the requisite changes to the leased Property a.k.a. 1 DWELLING UNIT as required per any new Licensing By Laws, and adjust the configuration of their rental properties accordingly e.g. reduce the number of formal kitchens to one shared kitchen (room with stove/oven), additional new parking on the Property etc. Landlord makes NO representations that the currently advertised configurations (e.g. number of formal shared kitchens in the house, number of bedrooms in the house) of their leased Properties will remain same after the new Licensing & By Laws are enacted (yet unknown). All currently advertised & agreed (Lease) Total Rent for leased Property a.k.a. 1 DWELLING UNIT reflect basic house configurations i.e. currently advertised # of bedrooms & washrooms, one main kitchen in each home with all requisite appliances; and any additional kitchen amenities in the 1 DWELLING-UNIT e.g. additional kitchens, additional stoves, fridges etc which addl. amenities per Lease provided for the 1 DWELLING UNIT at no additional cost for the convenience of the 1 Lessee, solely at the discretion of the Landlord - which amenities may have to be curtailed to comply with the new By Laws. In no case will the home be without the basic modern operating configuration & facilities/fixtures - legal bedrooms, 1 or more common (rec) rooms, 2 or more modern washrooms, 1 modern kitchen with multiple modern appliances (stove + 2 fridges), 1 laundry (washer & dryer), 1 modern furnace, 1 modern hot water heater, ESA & Fire & Gas Code compliant, and 24/7 warranty from Direct Energy etc. Total Rent for leased Property i.e. 1 DWELLING UNIT (based on # of Members in Lessee AND # of Bedrooms) - will be adjusted if the # of Bedrooms allowable per By Law has to change e.g. from 5 to 4. Landlord, is NOT in control of the aforementioned proposed City of Hamilton Licensing & By Laws for all Rental Housing; and accepts no liability flowing from it, save to comply fully with it. Lessee/Tenant release, indemnify, hold harmless, and waive all claim v Landlord/Lessor flowing from impact of said potential Licensing & By Laws & changes to their living conditions & potential behaviours therefrom. This is especially critical in areas of Lessee Health, Safety, and Security; and the compliance of both Lessee & Lessor with e.g. Usage of Living Spaces in the House, Fire Code e.g. NO disabling of fire alarms, Electrical Code, Parties, Public Disturbances, Parking, Noise, Snow Removal, Waste Management etc. Serious fines & charges flow from any violations & non compliance.
RTA Notice --- Landlord leases 1 Dwelling Unit (Entire Property) to 1 Lessee/Tenant (Group) with 1 Lease for 1 Total Rent/Month. NO - Room Rentals, Individual Leases.
