Although a minor cannot hold a lease, he can “benefit” from a lease agreement. The lease may be awarded to a third party, an “agent,” and held in trust for the minor until the age of 18. The Fraud Act, RSO 1990, c, p.19, stipulates that any agreement relating to the sale of land must be written down. However, an exception is made if the oral contract is partially cancelled. If a lease exceeds three years, it is mandatory that it be executed by a type of deed in order to be valid, but on the other hand, if a lease is three years or less, most legal orders do not need to execute a lease and the contract may take effect by parol (an oral agreement, but the parol lease may still have to be executed in writing to comply with the anti-combat provisions fraud). A rental agreement may be entered into if there is explicit or tacit consent to remain on the site, with the realization that permission to remain on the land may be revoked at any time by the landlord or tenant. In the event that a landlord resists the authorization, an appropriate notification must be made when the premises are evacuated, depending on the nature and circumstances of the tenant. When lease permits are surrendered and an adult tenant attempts to award a lease to a minor, the assignment does not transfer the legal title, but automatically creates a position of trust. The adult tenant will be the agent, unless someone else is appointed as an agent.
Accordingly, the Tribunal found that Warraich was free to proceed with his right to a reasonable interest in the property. If the owner has a commune and all the characteristics of a safe lease, the owner can grant a safe license. A secure license has the same security as a secure lease. For more information, please visit the “Safe Rental Conditions” section. The Court disagreed. Whenever the Warraich Divisional Court heard appeals against the BSA`s decisions, it expressly stated that the issue of fair co-ownership was not resolved – LTB only considered how the title was maintained in determining ownership and lease agreements. The court sided with Warraich – the trust agreement put Warraich`s interest on the property at $184,500.00, which included compensation for three months of rent arrears. There are no restrictions on minors who obtain a licence (i.e. personal permission to occupy premises).
A full rental agreement may be granted to the minor if he is 18 years old. The distinction between a rental agreement and a license is explained under What is a lease?. If there is a person 18 years of age or older who agrees to enter into a lease with the minor, a common lease can be created. The adult tenant will keep the legal property as agent for the two roommates (as above).
