13. Before entering into a lease with a person wishing to become a resident, the operator of a private seniors’ residence must make sure that the person has read the document referred to in section 37. Using that document and with the person’s agreement, the operator must then identify the services, if any, that the person wishes to receive. The operator must then enter into a written lease using, as the case may be, the forms prescribed by paragraph 4 or paragraph 5 of section 1 of the Regulation respecting mandatory lease forms and the particulars of a notice to a new lessee (chapter R-8.1, r. 3). In every case, the operator must also use the form prescribed by section 2 of that Regulation.
The operator of a private seniors’ residence must offer and maintain all the services listed in the lease and the appendix to the lease for the full term of the lease without increasing the cost or decreasing the provision of the services.
The operator must also maintain in the residence, at all times, sufficient qualified staff to respond adequately to the services agreed upon and to the commitments made to residents under the leases entered into pursuant to the first paragraph.
