A landlord is an owner who has leased the land, the building or a part of the land or building, to another person. A tenant is the person to whom the landlord granted temporary use of the land or building, in exchange for compensation, usually in the form of rent. Landlord and Tenant law covers the rights and responsibilities of both parties. In Canada, landlord and tenant law is covered by each province or territory and deals with such items as, rental increases, eviction, subleasing, tenant associations and repairs and maintenance.
