Can I be expelled without reason? Can I hang pictures on the wall? It’s time for a reminder of rental rights, rules and regulations.

Tenancy standards have improved somewhat in recent years, with the introduction of new regulations that have made it harder for tenants to be thrown unceremoniously onto the streets and easier to ensure they live in a warm, dry, healthy home. That’s not to say that renting in Aotearoa is a walk in the park. For Rental week On The Spinoff, we’ve published a number of stories that showcased the reality of renting, even with new rules meant to make things better.

We have heard that tenants are regularly asked to provide information above and beyond what is required when applying for a property and we have rounded up some of the most “cursed” rentals from New Zealand. We have also posted photos of some truly ungodly indoor mushroom gardens.

Rent Week has reminded me, and probably you, how confusing renting can be in New Zealand. So here I try to answer some of the questions you might have about your rights as a tenant (or landlord) in 2022 – whether you’re moving into your first apartment or just need a reminder.

Let’s start at the beginning: where can I find my rights?

The essence is in the legislation, namely the Residential Tenancies Act 1986. The general law may date from the mid-1980s, but it has been updated several times, most recently in 2020to ensure that it remains fit for purpose.

If you don’t want to dig through pages of legal documentation, you can find a lot of good – and easily understandable – information about Rental services website.

What if I own?

You’re in luck, thanks for bringing it up. The same legislation applies.

Why was the law updated in 2020?

The government said it wanted to ensure good faith relations between tenants and landlords, ensuring landlords were always protected while those living in properties received fair treatment.

Cool. But what does all this mean?

To begin with, the government removed the possibility of termination without cause on periodic rental contracts. This means that if you are on a recurring tenancy, your landlord must provide a valid reason if they want to end the tenancy. In most cases, you will have 90 days to leave the property, but in certain circumstances – such as if the landlord wishes to move back into the rental property themselves – you will have 63 days to leave. It is no longer acceptable for you to be kicked out of a recurring tenancy without an explicit reason or with little warning.

Landlords, you don’t have to worry either: you can always chase away unruly tenants. For example, landlords will still be able to terminate leases for a range of “just and justified” reasons, such as anti-social behavior. They could also evict someone for being at least three weeks behind on rent.

Speaking of rent… how many times can it be increased? Is there a limit to how much it can increase?

Your rent can only be increased once every 12 months (previously it was once every six months). This takes effect from the day you move into your property, not the start of the calendar year. You will also receive at least 60 days notice of any rent increases. There is no limit on how much your rent can increase. Often, but certainly not always, increases are in line with the broader housing market.

I want to hang a stylish gallery wall in my living room. Can my landlord stop me?

No – at least not in most cases. Under current legislation, tenants are allowed to make minor changes as long as they can be returned to substantially the same condition when the property is vacated. This means you should almost always be able to hang pictures and mirrors, or install baby safety gear, with no problem. It’s worth asking your landlord first, but if he denies your request, you can push back (unless you’re asking to knock down a wall or something).

Repel? How?

The first thing to do is always raise your concerns directly with the landlord or property manager. Often a simple e-mail explaining the problem will be enough to find an appropriate solution. If you cannot reach a diplomatic resolution, the Lease Court is always an option.

Speaking of delicate subjects: should I have my carpet cleaned by a professional before moving?

Nope! Many rental agreements will include it, but you don’t (I repeat: don’t) have to follow. The legal obligation is simply to leave the property in reasonably clean and tidy condition. Of course, if you left a huge dirty spot on the carpet, calling in a professional cleaner will probably be a good thing unless you want a big bill. You can find more examples of frequently requested, but unenforceable contract clauses on the Rental services website.

For more on what “reasonably clean and tidy” means – and how some owners piss – check out Toby Morris’ latest Side Eye.

Cleaning a rental to a spotless standard in hopes of getting your deposit back is a familiar sentiment for renters – but do landlords expect unfair standards? (Photo: Toby Morris)

How often can my apartment be inspected?

This is another often abused rental area, so here’s everything you need to know. The maximum frequency of inspections is once every four weeks and inspections must take place during normal daylight hours (8:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m.). Much like when you’re expecting a plumber, you often won’t know exactly when your landlord is going to show up that day, but they should provide at least 48 hours notice.

Let’s go back a bit: What are my rights when applying for a property? What should I reveal?

Great question – and one we tackled on The Spinoff this week. As Chris Schulz wrote, landlords are allowed to ask you about things like pets, lawn mowing and bail payments – but they are not allowed to ask about your race, gender, sexual orientation , your gender identity, relationship status, disabilities, age, political views or employment status.

One thing that is also prohibited, but which may surprise you if you have already applied for a rental: prospective tenants cannot be asked to provide copies of bank statements.

Surely these days it’s easy to find a rental that allows pets?

As Charlotte Muru-Lanning wrote for The Spinoff, recent legislative changes have unfortunately not made it easier for pet owners to find rental property. In short, the government felt the subject was too contentious to be amended. Some rentals allow pets, but you’ll need to check with the owner first.

The 2022 rental week runs from September 27 to October 2. Read the best of our rental coverage here.

As of September 23, the national average for a 30-year fixed mortgage was 6.43%, stalling the housing market across the country.

Standard home value in the United States is $356,026, up 16.5% from a year ago, although home values ​​fell 0.3% from July, the most sharp monthly decline since 2011, by Zillow Group Z.

What happened: About 64,000 home purchase deals fell through in August, corresponding to 15.2% of homes under contract for the month, RedFin reported.

The percentage of failed home purchase deals has hovered around 15% for the past three months, and before the pandemic, that percentage had hovered at 12%.

Although home values ​​have fallen since their peak in April, they are still up 43.6% since August 2019, according to Zillow.

In addition to record home values, the Fed’s interest rate policy also adds to higher mortgage payments, as the monthly mortgage is now $1,643 from $897 at the end of August 2019, up by 83% compared to before the pandemic.

The places hardest hit by rising rates are Sun Belt cities that have grown in popularity during the pandemic, including Jacksonville, Las Vegas and Atlanta.

In Jacksonville, 26.1% of homes under contract in August failed, the highest percentage among 50 of the most populous U.S. cities.

Why is this important: On September 21, the Chairman of the Federal Reserve Jerome Powell acknowledged that the housing market was hot and there needed to be a “reset” as home values ​​had reached record highs.

“Some homebuyers find that by the time they enter into a contract and lock in their mortgage rates, rates could be much higher than they were when they viewed the home and/or were pre-approved . It can kill the deal because the buyer is no longer financially comfortable with the purchase,” said Sam Chutea red fin RDFN real estate agent who works with sellers in Miami.

As more buyers pull out of the market due to exorbitant home values, the rental market has surged, with typical monthly rent at $2,090, up 12.3% year-over-year. the other.

Additionally, cities like Miami and New York lead in annual rent growth, up 21.9% and 17.9% year-over-year respectively.

It should be noted that the Sun Belt metropolitan areas have seen the strongest growth in the number of home buyers since the pandemic. Inevitably, home values ​​skyrocket, leaving those unwilling or unable to secure a mortgage to rent.

For potential buyers looking to buy their dream home, mortgage lender NASB Financial Inc. NASB offers a variety of banking products including checking, savings and certificate of deposit accounts. It also offers mortgage and refinance options, including self-employed mortgage options for the do-it-yourselfer or self-employed day trader.

Victoria Police are looking for more potential victims after they say they arrested two rental fraudsters who defrauded at least 10 victims out of thousands of dollars.

Police said they had recently been alerted to a series of “sophisticated” frauds, with victims reporting similarities in the suspects’ descriptions and methods.

Investigators say the suspects posted advertisements online and then communicated with the victims via email and text over a period of weeks to a month – after which they “brazenly” met the victims, called their references and given fake key fobs.

The victims, believing they were making valid rental agreements, transferred their first month’s rent and their deposit before realizing they had been defrauded.

Alerted property manager stings suspect

Police got a break in the case in early September, when one of the suspects met a victim to show him a suite in a building he claimed to be renting.

The victim transferred money to the suspect, but became suspicious and contacted the building manager who told him the unit was not for rent.

—Rich Ham, CEO, Fine Tune

CHICAGO, Illinois, USA, Sept. 19, 2022 /EINPresswire.com/ — Fine Tune, an indirect spend management service provider, today announced that Supply & Demand Chain Executive, the only publication covering the entire global supply chain, named Angie Claeys, vice president of uniform services at Fine Tune, as the winner of the 2022 Women in Supply Chain award.

The Women in Supply Chain award honors female supply chain leaders and executives whose accomplishments, mentorship and example have laid the foundation for women at all levels of a company’s supply chain network. . This year’s list includes individuals from software and service providers, consultants and universities, trucking and transportation companies, professional development agencies, procurement and supply divisions, etc., all of whom have helped supply chain customers and the supply chain community as a whole prepare for many of the challenges of today and tomorrow.

Angie is recognized for her work with customers in what is known as the “Customer Implementation Phase”, the beginning of the Fine Tune customer service lifecycle. In this role, Angie has helped shape the supply chain by using her world-class and insider industry knowledge to provide customers with absolutely optimal uniform leases, generating savings of 20-50% for customers.

Over the past year, Angie’s work with her customers has had even more impact in the current landscape of inflation, supply disruptions and labor shortages, as many suppliers have used these factors as margin gain opportunities. This practice has complicated the already nuanced and cumbersome uniform rental spend category, making it increasingly difficult for supply chain/supply managers to understand spend and close truly competitive deals. Angie’s work helps to extract and discern what is real from what is artificial for margin grabbing purposes, keeping things competitive in the marketplace and relieving the added burden and confusion of supply and supply chain customer plates.

The level of service Angie provides to customers is particularly remarkable due to her extensive but complex experience and knowledge of the uniform rental service. Prior to joining the Fine Tune team, she spent 13 years at Aramark Uniform Services’ factory in South Bend, Ind., one of the largest in the nation, rising from sales and service to general manager , then to the Vice President of Operations. , being the only woman and youngest executive to hold the title at that time. Such experience and understanding of how every aspect of the Uniform Rental operation influences customer costs and service levels gives customers access to unparalleled insights and, therefore, the most cost effective programs. optimal.

“Angie Claeys is a dynamic leader who has excelled in the traditionally male-dominated uniform rental industry, not despite being a woman, but because she is a woman who has practiced and developed the confidence and the tenacity necessary to achieve its objectives. Angie is a master of her craft. The deeply nuanced knowledge and experience she has gained over her career is invaluable to clients who have always struggled with the onerous nature of the uniform rental category. Angie navigates the complexities of the industry with finesse and handles even the most delicate processes with a steady hand,” commented Rich Ham, CEO of Fine Tune.

“When I launched this award three years ago, I was ready for an uphill battle. I envisioned a long way to go to educate the supply chain industry enough about why it was important to recognize women in the supply chain, but this award, the winners and those who submitted nominations, men and women, testify that supply chain organizations were already recognizing their women leaders; they had just need a better platform,” says Marina Mayer, Senior Editor of Supply & Demand Chain Executive and Food Logistics. “This year we received over 280 submissions. Nearly 100 of those submissions were from men. I’m so proud of everyone who participated, men and women. I am proud to call these women mentors, role models and friends of the industry. I am proud to interview them, support them and help promote see their journey. And I hope to see all of the winners from this year and past at our next Women in Supply Chain Forum.

Led by executive-level industry insiders, Fine Tune has also developed proprietary auditing software that monitors customer invoices to ensure compliance with implemented agreements.

Several months into the pandemic, Roy Brightwell received an email that he said could help him get back on his feet.

The 70-year-old Tarpon Springs, Florida resident had spent nearly three years battling foreclosure. Then, in March, COVID-19 hit and he was fired from his job as an insurance salesman.

At the time, “it was difficult to find money even for food,” he said.

So when a company called MV Realty offered to pay him $879 on the spot, it seemed like a godsend. All he had to do was agree to list his house with them if he decided to sell. Brightwell signed the contract without a second thought.

Two years later, her home was foreclosed and MV Realty might be able to collect around $9,000 from the sale, leaving her with nothing.

Brightwell is one of countless landlords who have gotten into legal trouble with MV Realty after breaking a contract with the company. The Delray Beach, Florida real estate brokerage is using quick money to trick homeowners into signing restrictive agreements that prevent them from transferring title to their own home without using MV Realty as an agent or paying high fees.

MV Realty is being investigated by the Florida Attorney General’s office, but so far no action has been taken.

The company says it lays out all the terms before owners sign and most customers don’t complain. MV Realty’s “homeowner benefits program” pays customers up to $5,000 for the exclusive rights to list their homes, said company spokeswoman Rachel Antman.

“MV Realty is investing in future business,” the company’s website states. “That way you get money up front and MV Realty has the ability to represent you in the future if you decide to sell. It’s a win-win!”

But critics say landlords often don’t realize the fine print locks them into a binding 40-year deal.

“The magnitude of this problem is so great,” said Matthew Weidner, a St. Petersburg attorney representing a client sued by MV Realty. “This is a situation where we really need regulators to step in and do something because this is going to stifle court cases and impact people for decades to come.”

Even if the owner dies, the contract passes on to whoever inherits the property. If a homeowner lists their home with another agent or even if they are forced to sell at a foreclosure auction, MV Realty can place a lien on the home and collect 3% of the property value .

MV Realty has sued at least 40 landlords in Pinellas, Hillsborough, and Pasco counties since 2018. In most cases, landlords end up paying the lien.

“It’s a very dense contract and the devil is in the details,” Weidner said.

“I did not find anything explicitly illegal in (the contract),” he added. “It’s not okay. It feels like people are being taken advantage of. But they signed the contract.”

Brightwell and his late partner, Michaela, moved into their four-bedroom home on Biarritz Circle in 2000. Born in England, Brightwell had traveled all over the world and expected Tarpon Springs to be his last stop. Now that he’s lost his home, he’s not sure he can afford to stay.

Brightwell breached his contract with MV Realty in December when he listed his home for sale with another brokerage. This prompted MV Realty to take legal action and place a lien on the house.

Antman with MV Realty said they again offered Brightwell the chance to list with them, but he declined.

Until then, Brightwell said he had forgotten everything about the contract he signed. He only listed his house as a last resort to avoid foreclosure. Although he was able to find a cash buyer, the deal ultimately fell apart when the buyer found out about the lien from MV Realty.

Brightwell expected to get money from the foreclosure sale. But Citi Mortgage, the Brightwell Homeowners Association and MV Realty have all filed motions asking the judge to pay them the remaining $12,662.56. The judge has not made a decision yet.

“They left me without a dime,” Brightwell said.

Kylie Mason, a spokeswoman for the Florida attorney general’s office, said her office had received 16 complaints about the company since 2020. She said there was an active consumer protection investigation, but declined. to provide details. The Tampa Bay Times reviewed the complaints and found them to be similar to those raised by Brightwell.

A man knocked on the door of Largo resident Katherine Ziems in October 2019 and offered her $550 to enroll in the homeowner benefits program. Looking back, “I should have known it was too good to be true,” she said.

When she went to sell her house in February, she said she vaguely remembered signing the deal with MV Realty, but couldn’t find the paperwork, so she just ignored it. Then, after putting the house on the market with another real estate agent, she was sued by MV Realty.

Antman said MV Realty called Ziems to remind him of the deal, but Ziems disputed it. Rather than try to fight what seemed like a losing battle, she decided to pay $5,000 from the sale to satisfy the lien.

Another client, Debra Harrell, said she tried to sell her home with MV Realty and still got in trouble with the company.

In June 2020, she enrolled in the Landlord Benefits Program and received $802 for the right to list a rental property she owned in Tarpon Springs. She contacted MV Realty in the fall and they assigned her an agent.

Harrell said the officer made no effort to help him. Eventually, Harrell found a cash buyer. She asked her listing agent to arrange a viewing, but said the agent never followed through.

Eager to close the deal, Harrell said she found another agent who agreed to represent the buyer and draft the contract. Although Harrell said the sales documents included MV Realty as the listing agent, the company sued for breach of the owner’s agreement.

In the end, the deal was dismissed and MV Realty walked away with a 3% commission.

Harrell said the experience made her wonder if MV Realty’s priority was selling homes or profiting from broken contracts.

“Nobody reads the fine print and they know it,” she said. “It’s a really shady way to do business.”

Nearly 30,000 owners have signed up for the owner benefits program since its launch in 2018, according to Antman. To date, MV Realty has sold 700 homes under the program.

“The vast majority of (homeowner benefits program) homeowners” who sell their homes through MV Realty are satisfied with their service, Antman said, “as evidenced by MV’s high ratings on Zillow and the Better Business Bureau.” .

Antman said MV takes every complaint seriously and works with relevant entities such as state attorneys general to resolve them.

To avoid complaints, she said MV Realty was clarifying the terms of the homeowner benefits program and giving them three days to cancel the deal. She added that most landlords who violate the agreement simply forget they signed it. In this case, MV Realty contacts the owner to remind them of the listing agreement.

Wes Shaw, a spokesman for the National Association of Realtors, said the organization could not comment on members’ business models, but added that it “believes consumers should be fully informed before making any an agreement, especially an agreement as important as the selection of a professional to represent in the process of selling the house.”

He urged owners who believe they have been harmed by a business to file a report with their state attorney general’s office or other appropriate agency.

Brightwell was initially given a month to move, but was able to have the deadline extended to August 26. Until the last minute, he was always scrambling to pack his things and find a place to go. After his electricity was cut off, he knew his time was up.

“I’ve lived here for twenty-two and a half years,” he says. “Just having to hand over the keys this afternoon is not going to be pleasant.

PERHAM — The University of Minnesota Extension will host several freefall meetings across the state regarding farmland leasing information. Determining a fair agricultural lease agreement is a challenge in today’s economy with the current high corn and soybean prices in 2022.

Negotiating a fair lease that satisfies landowner and farmer can be a challenge. Farm Business Management Extension Educators David Bau and Nathan Hulinsky will provide several ways, including examples, fact sheets and worksheets, to determine a fair farmland rental rate for both parties. .

Topics covered at the meetings will include historical and projected local trends in farmland rental rates, current farmland values ​​and sales, and a worksheet that will help determine a fair rental agreement. Input costs for 2022 will be presented with current corn and soybean prices in 2022. Worksheets will look at 2023 costs, affordable rental rates for farmers, rate of return to owner at current market values and review flexible tenancy arrangements.

The workshop program is available in October at extension.umn.edu. After the in-person workshops on farmland rental rates, there will be several online sessions. Starting in January 2023, there will be multiple virtual sessions across the state.

The majority of the papers presented at the workshops can be found at extension.umn.edu/business/farmland-rent-and-economics.

FINBIN database trends show Minnesota rental costs increased 4.6% from 2020 to 2021. Average USDA Minnesota statewide farmland rents increased 4.5% from 2021 to 2022. This data could be a way to plot a trend for 2023 rents.

New rental? How to turn a bland space into a personal refuge https://bcn-stay.com/new-rental-how-to-turn-a-bland-space-into-a-personal-refuge/ Sat, 10 Sep 2022 00:38:05 +0000 https://bcn-stay.com/new-rental-how-to-turn-a-bland-space-into-a-personal-refuge/ Even as she moved into a rental apartment, Alexa d’Argence was keen to put her personal mark on it. “Loving my space is more important to me than my security deposit.

Even as she moved into a rental apartment, Alexa d’Argence was keen to put her personal mark on it.

“Loving my space is more important to me than my security deposit. So I got started with paint, shelving, window treatments and upgrading the medicine cabinet,” says d’Argence, who, as a senior designer at BAR Architects in San Francisco, knows something about creating a stylish space.

“My landlord really appreciated the upgrades. I would say, consider changes that add value, and that wouldn’t be taken away if you moved,” she says.

Non-designers might not feel as comfortable doing this, as most leases say you can’t change anything permanently. Another approach: Strike up a conversation with your landlord to talk about potential changes, and maybe even offer to foot the bill.

Or, just make a few temporary tweaks, small personal touches that can turn bland and basic into hip and homey with just a trip to the hardware store.

“Personalising a rental is really easy these days; there are so many great accents that are designed to be temporary,” says Jessica Dodell-Feder, editor of HGTV Magazine.

THE WALLS

Jessica Shaw, director of interior design for The Turett Collaborative in New York, is a fan of removable wallpaper. “I have used it in my own home. Etsy, where I found mine, offers prints, murals, and custom options. At the end of your lease, you can gently remove it without leaving any residue,” she explains.

And don’t forget the ceiling. On one project, she created a wow factor by placing a colorful, removable geometry of Flavor Paper on a bedroom ceiling. Night sky patterns or photo murals of forests might be especially nice for city dwellers.

Denver designer Rachel Hoback laid an eye-catching star mosaic wallpaper on her risers. “This was a very quick and affordable project that made a huge difference in the look of our staircase,” she says.

Removable wallpapers can also add pizzazz to kitchen backsplashes, bathroom walls and cabinets. Tempaper, for its part, offers a range of designs, including those that resemble painted ceramic tile, terrazzo, marble, or embossed metals.

Liz Morrow of Tacoma, Washington temporarily lined her fridge.

“A fridge can be ugly or boring, but removable wallpaper can easily turn it into the most interesting part of the whole kitchen,” she says.

Dodell-Feder agrees: “It’s a fun, no-commitment solution for a blah kitchen.”

STORAGE

“We don’t tend to consider customizing our rental storage spaces,” says Shaw, “but there are ways to improve their aesthetics and functionality.”

Install custom closet organizers to efficiently store wardrobe and household items. (You can even find some great stuff on Amazon) Coordinating bins and baskets are inexpensive and ubiquitous at home decor stores.

Or create a spacious closet against a wall. You can take a rack with you when you move.

In a small kitchen, shelf risers and pull-out bins that fit on cabinet shelves increase your storage capacity. And adhesive hooks are perfect for hanging not only artwork, but also pots and utensils.

Metal utility carts are available in a range of colors; if you can paint, stencil or decoupage yourself. They are handy for frequently used kitchen items or bar equipment.

THE FURNITURE

New York public relations manager Gita Mirchandani gradually added colorful and meaningful pieces from her favorite designers to her all-white apartment. There are Eames chairs, a George Nelson bench, Jonathan Adler screens and Philippe Starck dining chairs. “Each serves as an important landmark for moments in my life,” she says.

She also personalized her bedroom and honored her heritage. “My headboard is a colorful hand-painted Indian screen that reminds me of my fascinating past every day,” she says.

Convertible furniture allows you to create defined spaces that did not exist. Murphy-style beds fold up into a wardrobe, with options like a sofa or table attached. Tables like the ones from Resource Furniture convert to dining, office or cafe tables, or console tables.

And a simple room screen can be a workhorse. There are rigid frame panels and room dividers in colored canvas, weave, paper, metal and wooden slats.

THE WINDOWS

Curtains or blinds can add texture, color and privacy.

If there are no rods already installed, spring-loaded or twist-and-fit rods fit different window sizes and have protective rubber ends. Kwik-Hang brackets can be pressed into window trim without a drill. Or look for peel and stick window treatments from Redi-Shade; some also offer better light control.

THE FINISHING TOUCH

Paint, especially spray paint, is an affordable way to enhance a space. Some types can be used on carpets and on decorative fabrics on furniture or curtains. (Glidden’s Max Flex is a trademark.)

Buy basic cabinet hardware or switch plate covers at a hardware store and paint them your favorite shades. Follow product instructions to prepare and test surfaces before painting.

Changing knobs and handles is another easy way to change the feel of a room, and there are plenty of creative options.

Brighten up your bathroom by replacing your shower head with a colored shower head, or a shower head that sprays like rain or in colors.

Condo rents climb to record average of $2,806 in Toronto https://bcn-stay.com/condo-rents-climb-to-record-average-of-2806-in-toronto/ Wed, 07 Sep 2022 21:16:37 +0000 https://bcn-stay.com/condo-rents-climb-to-record-average-of-2806-in-toronto/ The cost of renting a condo in Toronto hit a record average of $2,806 in August, a 19.5% year-over-year increase, or $458 per month. This is the 10th month in a row that condominium rents have risen in double digits year-over-year, rising 11.4% in the last three months alone, according to an update this week […]]]>

The cost of renting a condo in Toronto hit a record average of $2,806 in August, a 19.5% year-over-year increase, or $458 per month.

This is the 10th month in a row that condominium rents have risen in double digits year-over-year, rising 11.4% in the last three months alone, according to an update this week from the company. Urbanation market research.

Condo rents have been above pre-pandemic levels since the spring, company president Shaun Hildebrand said this week.

“It’s not a rebound effect (from the pandemic). It’s actually the growth, which makes it all the more alarming that rents are going up in a short period of time,” he said.

He attributed part of the rise in rents to rising interest rates that have slowed home buying even as the Toronto area sees high employment rates. The Bank of Canada raised its key rate by another 75 points to 3.25% on Wednesday. This rate was 0.25% at the start of the year.

“We now have higher income tenants active in the market who otherwise would have bought if the terms were right for them, if the affordability was better. They are able to pay higher rent levels and that is contributing to the exceptionally strong growth we are seeing,” said Hildebrand.

Urbanation found that 41% of renters who rented a condo in August agreed to pay more than the asking price, an average of $132 more per month. The average length of stay for condos in the rental market also fell to a record low of eight days last month.

The behavior is similar to what the rental market experienced from around 2016 to 2018; then rental growth began to slow in 2019.

“I think we’ll eventually see that too,” Hildebrand said. “The market is naturally starting to hit some resistance levels because (it) is just getting too expensive.”

At this point, tenants begin to find roommates or move into older, more affordable buildings and demand begins to slow, he said.

“We could have started to see the first signs of this in the August data. Rental transactions actually declined month-over-month and year-over-year, even though new listings were higher,” Hildebrand said. “That obviously doesn’t lead to lower rents yet. But if it continues, we could see rents start to stabilize.

Some easing of rents could also come from a better balance between market supply and demand; there are 30 percent more listings on the market than a year ago, but still less than a month’s supply.

The number of leases signed in August was 6% lower than in July, the month when students sign the most leases starting September 1.

There were 155,568 condos on Toronto’s rental market in October 2021 (the most recent numbers available), according to the Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation. That compares to 320,152 purpose-built rentals — townhouses or buildings with three or more units.
