Property Left Behind by a Tenant

Tenants should remove all their belongings from a rental unit at the end of the tenancy. Landlords must make all reasonable attempts to have a tenant remove their belongings. A landlord may be held legally responsible for disposing of a tenant’s items unlawfully. If a tenant leaves property valued at over $1,500 by a landlord, a landlord may apply to the ORT for a Property Disposition Order.

Application for Property Disposition Order

Applications for Property Disposition Orders are available through the ORT’s online portal under landlord applications as Property Disposition Order. The following information should be included in a Property Disposition Order application:

  • proof of all reasonable attempts made to the contact the tenant and have them collect their items;
  • an itemized list with associated dollar value of each item left behind;
  • if applicable, a VIN number for any serial numbered goods (vehicles or trailers); and
  • pictures of the items left behind.

Once an application of this type is received, ORT staff will review the content of the submission and mark the application as ready for payment if all necessary documentation is included. A landlord may then pay for the application in the online portal. Once the application has been paid for, it will be reviewed by a hearing officer who will decide on the application.
