Peel Community Legal Services are seeking contributions from our clients and other interested parties to prepare a submission to the State Government to suggest changes to the Residential Tenancy Act 1987.
Tenants within the Peel region are invited to provide feedback and ideas of amendments to the Act that may support a more equitable system that benefits both Tenants and owners. 
The information provided by those directly involved in Tenancy is important to ensure the Department has access to stories and practical examples of issues and solutions/suggestions as part of the review.  
PCLS have prepared a number of questions and these are provided below. Please answer completely. We encourage you to answer frankly and honestly and take this opportunity to have your opinions and ideas included in our submission to decision makers.
Tenancy Lease Agreements

This section is seeking suggestions regarding lease agreements.

Fixed term agreements give security if the tenant can financially afford to stay in the property and does not have a need to move for reasons such as employment etc.   

A Periodic tenancy has benefits for both parties if circumstances/future needs are unknown or unstable or owner needs such as a need to sell the property in the near future.
