Residential leasing is a specific type of real estate that can bring challenges involving landlords and tenants. Learn more about residential leasing at an upcoming web seminar (webinar) offered by the Ontario Real Estate Association (OREA).
This live webinar is free to all OREA members. It is scheduled to take place on Tuesday, November 15 at 1:00 p.m. The session, Residential leasing: Don’t go outside of the Act, will feature special guest participant Lou Radomsky, a lawyer and the legal counsel for OREA Standard Forms. The webinar will be hosted by Cassandra Agnew Walker, senior manager, standard forms, at OREA.
“Residential leasing is completely different from residential sales,” says Agnew Walker. “With an increased number of people now renting residential properties across the province, it’s very important for REALTORS® to understand at least the basics of residential leasing, while being aware of the differences between residential and commercial leasing and the issues that their clients and customers may encounter.”
Tips and cautions related to residential leasing will be featured in the upcoming webinar. Participants will also have the opportunity to discuss the following:
- Complexities of lease agreements
- Essential differences between commercial and residential leasing
- Relevant issues for non-resident landlords
- Requirements for landlords to provide tenants a relationship brochure
- Paper trail, timing and delivery of notices to tenants
- Best practices and what not to do when listing or leasing residential properties.
Participating OREA members will have a chance to submit questions and share their own experiences. This webinar is just one in a series related to standard forms being offered this year. To join in, all you need is a computer with working speakers and internet access.
Like all webinars, the format for this topic will be interactive. You can submit questions, listen to panelists and watch slides related to the topic. If you can’t participate in the seminar on the date offered, you can watch a recorded version at a later date and time convenient to you.
OREA members can register in advance in order to obtain a login link for the webinar. On the day of the webinar, members can log in up to 30 minutes before the scheduled start time. Participation in this and other webinars will be on a first-come, first-served basis. For more details on all of these resources, visit Webinars and Tutorials.
