Oshawa introduces demerit points for university-area rental homes.

 Article posted by Samar Manuel, real estate sales representative, source www.durhamregion.com/community/oshawa


Oshawa council has created a new demerit point system for rented homes in the area surrounding Durham College and UOIT campus. Points are doled out when there are bylaw infractions on the home. Seven points draws a warning letter from municipal law enforcement and 15 points results in a hearing that could see a landlord's licence to rent yanked.

Licensing - operating without a licence: 5 points

Licensing - operating contrary to regulations: 3 points

Zoning - illegal use: 3 points

Property: 2 points

Lot maintenance: 2 points

Boulevard: 2 points

Noise: 2 points
