BC government extends rental supplement and moratorium on rent increases, relaxes eviction ban
The BC government announced on June 19 that they're extending the rental supplement program and moratorium on rent increases, while relaxing some of the rules around the eviction ban.
The new rules on rental and tenancy came into effect on June 24.
Eviction, access rules relaxed
The province now allows evictions for reasons other than unpaid rent. This includes the ability to evict tenants when taking possession of a home, subject to a notice period.
These changes also include relaxed guidelines on accessing occupied units for repairs, maintenance, and showings.
