Tenant awarded $54,000 for eviction

In a recent case, the Residential Tenancy Branch ordered a landlord to pay their tenant $54,000 since they did not comply with the purposes of ending a tenancy.

A landlord can use a two-month notice to end tenancy when they or their close family member will live in the unit. This means that the tenant will be forced to move out of the unit. What happens when the landlord or their family members don’t move in though? The tenant may have a right to claim for damages for 12 months’ rent payable.
