A N12- is a government form, that a landlord can give a tenant. It’s an eviction notice (a warning letter) which asks a tenant to vacate their unit for landlord or purchaser’s own use as well as for the use of select family members.
In light of Toronto’s red-hot rental market, there is a built-in incentive for some landlords to abuse this provision in the law to try and evict tenants in bad faith, in order to bring in another tenant- at higher rent.
That’s where the N12 registry comes in! It’s a neutral platform that allows tenants to post information about N12 notices at their address. It’s an useful tool for prospective and current tenants alike.
