The Vancouver City Council voted unanimously on Tuesday evening, aimed at protecting tenants from renting, and the motion-propelled consultant called it a "walkout."
Last month, activist and consultant of the housing fund, Jean Suezhen, proposed the move. This hampers the tenants from being leased out of the renters when renovating or renovating a home.
However, the most controversial aspects of the movement relate to a section calling on some urban workers, including rental leaseholders, instead of provinces. This means that lessers can not increase rental rates when renting them because they are currently available.
"The problem is that consultants listened to the dangers of homeowners, so they want to investigate all of them, and there are no teeth in the investigation," Swonson said.
One of the motion-propelled divisions supports existing laws of the Provincial Employment Law (RTA), which requires the lessees to be temporarily replaced – to increase their lease when they are not rented or repaired.
The revised movement also calls for the supervision of all apartment houses sold to the city and the provision of information about the rights of tenants in their buildings. Another section of the gesture asks you to explore ways to organize and procure all of your city lease purchases.
Regional and city jurisdiction
According to Mayor Kennedy Stewart, the correction of the movement should examine what the city can legally do, as the housing law of the staff is under the province's jurisdiction.
During the meeting, Stewart said, "If we need more information, then this is true.
In British Columbia, laws regulating lease contracts and rent control belong to RZhD, which is a step towards the settlement of disputes.
Housing Violation and Protection Policy in Vancouver acts as an addition to the City Planning Department for commenting on the City Administration and the Council.
In the City Policy, the landlord requesting a permit for a substitution of a landlord plan as part of the authorization approval require owners of the land. This includes requiring renovations to be replaced by the renter and compensation for their business.
However, if repairs are not permitted, the policy does not apply.
The original Suez Motion has called for all types of city leakage policies and all permits, but RTA and Vancouver Charter do not allow this feature at this time.
High rental, low space
Over the past two weeks, dozens of people, most of whom are employers, have participated in public hearings to support proposed changes. Many people cried out from the gallery on Tuesday's cameras.
Lessors have told renter about the new housing, while others have offered money to move, but the landlords may have left the city to find another affordable place.
Half of the city residents rented their own homes. According to the employee's written notice, the rental rate in Vancouver is only 0.9 percent – the lowest in Canada.
As noted in the memorandum, many landlords live in old buildings, which are increasingly in need of repair, renovation and repair. It also says that it is difficult for renters to make repairs by rented rates.
The province has accepted a rental housing task to solve this problem. It is expected that at the end of this month, recommendations will be made.
