Landlords and tenants rights advocates have spoken out about proposed amendments to the Residential Tenancy Act.

Changes would grant renters automatic tenure at the beginning of the lease, meaning landlords would have to provide cause before evictions.

Now a landlord has the same rights as a tenant – they must give three months notice. Tenure is granted after five years.

But some landlords worry changes would limit their ability to get rid of problem tenants.

Cole Webber of the Tenant Alliance of Nova Scotia says the amendments are a safeguard against unfair evictions.
