Question:

I have not signed a lease for my basement suite apartment. I had a roommate move in with me to help with the rent. Now my landlord says that I cannot have a roommate. Does he have the right to do that? Can I move out with just one month notice if he insists that my roommate move out?

     Although you have not signed a lease you still have an agreement or understanding with your landlord about the terms under which you live in the property. If you both agreed that you would be the only occupant of the property, then that is a term of the tenancy agreement even though it was not written down. Your landlord could then insist the agreement be kept.
