A Landlord can retain a maximum deposit of one month’s normal rent.
A Landlord is obligated to pay the tenant interest on the rent deposit every year. The applicable interest rate is always the same as the Rent Increase Guideline as discussed above.

3 Common mistakes people make when buying investment property
1. Bidding too high or getting into bidding war. If you over pay on a property, it already seems like a bad investment.
2. Buying a fixture upper that’s a great price but ends up costing more than it’s worth with renovations
3. Not getting a pre-approval. Just because you have 20% downpayment saved doesn’t mean you’ll be approved for the mortgage amount you’ll still need.
