Do you know your rights and responsibilities as a landlord or tenant? Do you have a problem you need to solve?

The Residential Tenancies Branch can help you by providing information on matters such as rent, repairs and deposits and mediating disputes between tenants and landlords. We provide information on your rights and responsibilities during a tenancy, investigate problems, and hold hearings to make decisions and issue orders on certain issues.
