Sharing Rental Housing?

It can be hard to find out what your rights and responsibilities will be when you share rental accommodation with another person. There are many different kinds of arrangements and different sets of laws that apply to them.

This web tool will help you figure out which laws apply to your situation and what your rights and responsibilities are. Here's how it works:

  • Each page will ask you a "yes or no" question.
  • The answer you give will determine what question you will be asked next.
  • At any time, you can do a question or questions over again by using the "Back" button in your web browser. Or you can start again at the beginning by clicking on the "START OVER" button at the top of each page.
  • After you have answered enough questions, you will be shown a page that tells you about some of the laws that apply to your situation. This will be based on the answers you have given.

Most of the question pages also give some explanation and examples to help you decide what your answer should be.
