Illegal actions your landlord may be taking without you realizing it

Article Summary: 

landlords and tenants, and any clauses in a lease that contradict the Act are void. Some illegal landlord behaviours include charging deposits for damages, pets or cleaning, denying pets, not respecting tenant privacy, and failing to follow rental increase guidelines. Tenants are allowed to sublet or become month-to-month tenants after their lease ends, but can still be evicted for specific reasons. Landlords must use the Standard Form of Lease in Ontario, but can add their own terms as long as they don't contradict the Act or the lease.
