I am sorry to hear this.This is grounds for eviction. It doesn't matter that you have a fixed term lease. She has breached the lease in many ways. She misrepresented herself as a student so that you would rent her the space. She did not tell you that she was receiving social assistance. And, she is carrying out a laundry cleaning service at your expense in the residential unit she is renting. For her to be able to carry out a business she has to have a commercial lease and has to let the landlord know what the businesses.I suggest that you contact the residential tenancies branch tomorrow and asked them how to get this woman out as quickly as possible. You will need to provide her with an conviction notice and then get an order for eviction if she doesn't leave.
