I know this is a bit of a strange question.
I have a fixed term tenancy agreement and the lease is not up yet. However, the landlady really doesn't like me and has made it very unpleasant for me to live in the home. (for example, the landlady lives in the same building and has barking dogs who she won't do anything about even though I've told her they disrupt my sleep and work). The landlady has asked me to move out early, and of course I want to because it's been so unpleasant.
I was thinking of signing a "Mutual Agreement to End Tenancy Early" but I really don't think this is right as I am being pressured into moving out. I already have decided I will be filing a claim against her for loss of quiet enjoyment due to dogs barking, and was wondering if I could make the evidence strong that she broke the lease by forcing me out early? I could just not sign any agreement, but then it may look like I broke the lease (though I would still have emails about her pestering me to move out). Is there any better fit from the Tenancy Act on how to end tenancy in this situation?
How a tenancy ends
44 (1) A tenancy ends only if one or more of the following applies:
(a) the tenant or landlord gives notice to end the tenancy in accordance with one of the following:
(i) section 45 [tenant's notice];
(i.1) section 45.1 [tenant's notice: family violence or long-term care];
(ii) section 46 [landlord's notice: non-payment of rent];
(iii) section 47 [landlord's notice: cause];
(iv) section 48 [landlord's notice: end of employment];
(v) section 49 [landlord's notice: landlord's use of property];
(vi) section 49.1 [landlord's notice: tenant ceases to qualify];
(vii) section 50 [tenant may end tenancy early];
(b) the tenancy agreement is a fixed term tenancy agreement that, in circumstances prescribed under section 97 (2) (a.1), requires the tenant to vacate the rental unit at the end of the term;
(c) the landlord and tenant agree in writing to end the tenancy;
(d) the tenant vacates or abandons the rental unit;
(e) the tenancy agreement is frustrated;
(f) the director orders that the tenancy is ended;
(g) the tenancy agreement is a sublease agreement.
I know I am within my rights to stay, but considering how unpleasant it is (with things like dogs barking) I want to move first and then be compensated for damages latter. The only reason the landlord gave me to move out is because she doesn't want "a man" living in the home.
