A tenant subject to a procedure for non-payment of rent for non-payment of rent can avoid repayment by paying before the judgment, in addition to the rent owed and interest at the rate agreed under Section 28 of the Tax Administration Act (R.S.Q., Chapter A-6.002) (s. 1883 Civil Code of Quebec). In addition, the law requires the public sector to use the Housing Authority`s current rental methods for renting in low-rent housing under section 1984 of the Civil Code of Quebec and for the rental of a dwelling in an educational institution by a student enrolled in that institution. The landlord must use the existing forms of leasing of the Housing Authority: the form of renting of the administrative housing court has been compulsory since 1 September 1996. It must be used for every new apartment rental, whether it is a bedroom, an apartment, a condo, a house, etc. Since September 1, 1996, the rental method of the Housing Authority (rental table) must be used. The form must be used for all newly leased contracts, whether it is a room, an apartment or a house. Unfortunately, this is not possible in Quebec. When a tenant signs a rental agreement, he is responsible for the agreement with the landlord. A landlord wishing to recover a dwelling must inform the taker at least six months before the expiry of the tenancy agreement in the event of a fixed lease of more than six months; If the term of the lease is less than or equal to six months, the notice period is one month. (Article 1960, paragraph 1, Civil Code of Quebec) The only specific situations in which one can opt out of the lease are: if the lease is less than 12 months or if the duration is indeterminate, the change in conditions must be notified at least one month and no more than 2 months before the expiry of the contract. In the case of a lease of 12 months or more, the termination must take place at least 3 months and no more than 6 months before the expiry of the lease. For the rental of a room, the termination is no less than ten days or more than twenty days (Article 1942 Civil Code of Quebec).
Please note that there is also the low-rent rental mode and the rental mode for renting a student`s accommodation through an educational institution. When the tenancy agreement is terminated for security reasons, the taker must submit a notification containing a certificate issued by an official or official appointed by the Minister of Justice, who supports the tenant`s statement. If you do not find that the increase is unjustified after an interview with the landlord, you can contact the Housing Authority (514-873-2245) to ask that they judge whether the increase is justified or not. This must be done within 10 days of signing the rental agreement if the landlord has given you the amount of rent paid by the previous tenant and within 2 months if the landlord has not done so. Quebec law authorizes a rent increase when a new tenant occupies a rental unit; However, at the time of the closing agreement, the landlord must provide the tenant with a notice indicating the lowest rent in the 12 months prior to the start of the lease. The tenant can challenge the rent and ask the Housing Authority to set his rent (Article 1896 Civil Code of Quebec). The tenant must inform the landlord in writing of his intention to sublet or transfer the tenancy agreement and to indicate the name and address of the proposed person. The landlord then has 15 days to inform the tenant if he accepts or refuses the proposed person. If you refuse, there is a reason. If the lessor does not respond, the lessor is deemed to be consenting to the sub-cession or transfer (Articles 1870 and 1871 Civil Code of Quebec).
