3.1 Types of Evidence

Evidence is the collection of information and facts that is submitted in support of an application. You and your witnesses will have the chance to present oral evidence in the form of sworn or affirmed testimony during the hearing, but you should also submit relevant documentary and/or digital evidence in advance of the hearing. Here are some common examples of acceptable evidence:

  • the tenancy agreement;
  • condition inspection reports;
  • other approved forms and notices;
  • letters, emails, and text messages;
  • receipts and estimates;
  • sworn or unsworn written statements;
  • photos, videos, and audio recordings; and
  • internet research.
