As you prepare to vacate your apartment, please refer to the terms of your Residential Tenancy Agreement and your responsibilities outlined below which must be fulfilled before you leave.
As per York Apartments Residential Tenancy Agreement:
15. Termination by Resident
The Resident acknowledges that the Resident must give at least sixty (60) days written notice of intention to vacate the apartment and end the Tenancy Agreement. The date of termination shall be on the last day of a rental period (last day of the month). Notice is to be mailed or hand delivered by the Resident to the Housing Services Office and must be confirmed by both Resident and Landlord signing a Form N11, Agreement to Terminate a Tenancy.
A Housing Services staff member will inspect the condition of your apartment before and after you move out. You will be notified of the pre-inspection at least 24 hours in advance but typically within one week of your move-out date. We expect to find reasonable wear and tear. Damage and excessive dirt do not constitute wear and tear.

- Clean the oven and stove top; move the fridge and stove away and clean behind and under the appliance. Heavy duty cleaners such as Easy-Off are recommended.
