Nova Scotia renters to get landlord database



As reported in The Star Halifax, an organization representing investment property owners in Nova Scotia is creating a new registry and certification program to educate its members on provincial tenancy legislation and help tenants find reputable landlords.

The Investment Property Owners Association of Nova Scotia (IPOANS) announced the landlord registry, modelled on a similar program in British Columbia, on Monday.

“It’s apparent there’s a need for more education on the landlord side, particularly with the front-line workers, to have a better understanding of the Residential Tenancies Act,” Kevin Russell, executive director of IPOANS, said in an interview.

IPOANS is designing a course on the provincial Residential Tenancies Act, which outlines the rights of landlords and tenants, for landlords and their employees, like building superintendents. Those who score 80 per cent or higher will receive an “I Rent It Right” certificate and be added to a searchable online database. The certificates will be valid for two years and then landlords and employees will have to be recertified to stay on the database. The course, which IPOANS hopes to launch this fall, will cost about $50.
