Other– in general, some terminology and minor amendments have changed and while some penalty provisions have been added, others have been increased.

Upcoming changes (dates to be advised)

There are also new guidelines on what information managing parties may request from prospective tenants during the rental application process

Protecting privacy– new limits apply to the personal information that can be requested and collected by managing parties
