Residential tenancy: What is quiet enjoyment?

In a residential tenancy, the landlord is obligated to ensure that the tenant’s quiet enjoyment is protected.

What does quiet enjoyment actually mean? It means:

  • freedom from unreasonable disturbance;
  • reasonable privacy;
  • exclusive possession; and
  • use of common areas, free from significant interference.

A breach of quiet enjoyment can lead to a compensation for damage from the landlord to the tenant.
