Tenant's Notice to End the Tenancy (N9)
This form is available as a PDF.
I am giving this notice because I want to move out of the rental unit.
The last day of my tenancy is indicated below. This is the termination date.
I will move out of the rental unit on or before the termination date.
You've selected a date less than 60 days past the end of the current rental period. Unless the unit can be rented, rental fees for this period are still due.
For most types of tenancies (including monthly tenancies) the termination date must be at least 60 days after the tenant gives the landlord this notice. Also, the termination date must be the last day of the rental period. For example, if the tenant pays on the first day of each month, the termination date must be the last day of the month. If the tenancy is for a fixed term (for example, a lease for one year), the termination date cannot be earlier than the last date of the fixed term.
The landlord can apply to the Board for an order to end the tenancy and evict the tenant as soon as the tenant gives the landlord this notice. However, if the Board issues an order ending the tenancy, the order will not require the tenant to move out any earlier than the termination date the tenant included in this notice.
The termination date set out in this notice can be 10 days (or more) after the tenant gives this notice to the landlord if the landlord has given the tenant either an N12 Notice to End your Tenancy or an N13 Notice to End your Tenancy. The termination date does not have to be the last day of a rental period.
The tenant can use this notice to end the tenancy if the tenant asked the landlord for permission to assign the rental unit to someone else, and the landlord refused. The termination date must be:
The termination date does not have to be the last day of a rental period or the last day of a fixed term.
A landlord cannot require the tenant to sign an N9 Tenant's Notice to End the Tenancy as a condition of agreeing to rent a unit. A tenant does not have to move out based on this notice if the landlord required the tenant to sign it when the tenant agreed to rent the unit.
Exceptions: A landlord can require a tenant to sign an N9 Tenant's Notice to End the Tenancy as a condition of agreeing to rent a rental unit in the following two situations:
The tenant must move out and remove all their personal possessions from the rental unit by the termination date set out on page 1. If the tenant moves out by the termination date set out above, but leaves behind personal possessions, the tenant will no longer have any rights to those possessions and the landlord will be allowed to dispose of them.
