     There are arguments that go both ways in this situation. You fall within the definition of tenant for the purposes of rights and obligations set out in the Residential Tenancies Act; however, you have not signed the contract (lease) between the landlord and the tenants. Because of that it could be said that you are not a party to that agreement and are therefore not bound by extra obligations that go beyond the terms of the Residential Tenancies Act.
