What happens when my lease is up?
Three months prior to the end of your lease, Northview will send you a renewal letter that outlines new rental rates based on a one year lease or a month-to-month term. Once you decide if you would like to renew with Northview, you will need to notify the regional office in writing of your desired lease term. If you need to move at the end of your lease, you are required to provide your notice to vacate, in writing, based on the terms of your lease agreement.
For properties in Nova Scotia and New Brunswick your lease renews automatically for another year if you do not give three months' notice prior to the anniversary date.
