Rosa is an author of both fiction and non-fiction, creator of the Zomb-Eh? animation, and artist/writer for Eeyayho’s Adventure.

Both Canada and the USA have specific laws that govern residential rentals. These laws, known as the Residential Tenancies Acts in Canada and Residential Landlord Tenant Laws/Acts in the US, outline the rights and responsibilities of both landlords and tenants.

Governmental branches and/or organizations such as the Landlord and Tenant Board or Residential Tenancies Branches were created to keep landlords and tenants informed about theses laws. They also assist in resolving disputes between landlords and tenants by providing mediation and/or adjudication.

The laws vary in each province/territory or state, so it is important to know your rights and responsibilities before you act. Links are provided below to take you to the site with information specific to your state, province or territory.
