Guest Policy

Your lease states as per section 1.02 (iii) of your lease:

Guests shall not be permitted to remain in the unit longer than fourteen (14) days within a twelve (12) month period without the prior written consent of the Landlord.  In the event that Tenants wish to have a guest reside in the Unit for a period longer than fourteen (14) days within a twelve (12) month period, they must first obtain the written approval of the Landlord.  The Property Manager may agree to the stay and will confirm in writing the length of the stay permitted.  The Property Manager may refuse the request if it appears the guest does not intend, or has no prospects of, moving at the end of the agreed-to Guest term, or if staff or tenants have complained about the guest’s behaviour and those complaints have been found to be valid. 

At the end of the Guest term, the Property Manager will check to ensure the Guest has left.  Guests who wish to stay beyond the normal Guest term may apply to become Tenants immediately (see additions to the household). If a Guest continues to stay in the unit without the Sault Ste. Marie Housing Corporation’s permission, the Sault Ste. Marie Housing Corporation may cut off the household’s rent subsidy with 90 days written notice. The Tenant has the right to ask for a review of this decision.  Tenants are responsible for the behaviour of their Guests at all times. Should the Tenant move out of the unit, the Guest must also move out.  Any guests staying in the unit after the lease-holding Tenant moves out will be considered trespassers and removed by the police under the Trespass to Property Act 1990, or failing that will be considered unauthorized occupants in accordance with the Residential Tenancies Act, and are responsible for paying compensation so long as they occupy the Unit.
