New Landlord Information

Landlords are an integral part of London's off-campus community, as they help accommodate nearly 30,000 students each year. The Off-Campus Housing Department at Western values the work you do and would like to assist you where possible.

Please be aware of the following vital information landlords should consider, which could help avoid potentially difficult situations with tenants or others in the off-campus community:

  • Check new tenant's references. An easy way to avoid potential trouble with a tenant in the future is to find out from another landlord if a tenant has caused problems in the past.
  • Keep yourself up-to-date with Ontario legislation and London city by-laws that pertain to your business. Go to the Resource section to view links to useful web sites.
  • Use the Housing Mediation Service if you need information or assistance in resolving a conflict with a tenant.

Website and Social Media Upgrades

Recent upgrades to the website include an improved picture uploader for landlord's placing listings. We have begun to send auto-emails to landlords before their listings expire. Throughout 2017 we aim to continue upgrades for the landlord user experience.

We launched a second Twitter account in 2016 as an additional feature to advertising with us. Our new Twitter account will only post rental listings. As soon as your rental listing is activated on our website, it will appear in our Twitter feed. Students following our Twitter account will instantly see new rental listings.
