HSABC and TRAC Webinar: Deposits, Fees, and Rent Increases
July 11, 2022, 10:00 - 11:30 AM
For most tenants in BC, money is tight and every dollar matters. Can your landlord charge you for having a pet? What about if you pay your rent late? Do you know about the recent legislative amendment to the annual rent increase formula? This webinar will educate you on the rules regarding deposits, fees and rent increases to ensure that you’re not paying your landlord anymore money than you need to. Presented in partnership with TRAC.
