When a lease is terminated because of wrongdoing by the tenant(s), be it either at a termination by a judge of the Régie du logement for non-payment, or because of noise causing serious harm, or whether it is during an automatic termination, or when the tenant abandons the dwelling for no reason, taking his movable goods with him/her and ceasing to pay the rent, the landlord is entitled to contractual damages with interest because of such termination.

Under the Civil Code, the landlord may give this notice, at least three (3) months but not more than six (6) months, before the end of the lease.
