Yes, the Condominium Property Act gives the condominium board the power to evict a tenant in certain situations. For example, when the tenant has:
- caused damage, other than normal wear and tear, to the common property or any other property of the condominium corporation; or
- violated one of the condominium’s bylaws.
When evicting a tenant for one of the above reasons, the condominium must give the tenant written notice and provide a copy to the owner. The owner cannot prevent the condominium board from evicting the tenant. The tenant must move out by the last day of the month immediately following the month the notice is served. For example, if the condominium board serves the notice on May 14, the tenant would need to leave by June 30.
If a tenant does not move out after receiving notice, the condominium board has the right to make an application in the Court of King’s Bench for an order requiring the tenant to leave.
