The tenant, under Section 1968 of the Civil Code of Quebec, may recover damages + interest resulting from a repossession of a housing in bad faith, whether he has consented or not to the recovery of his housing. He may also ask punitive damages + interest from the offending owner, in addition to moral and material damages.

The Association of Quebec Landlords (APQ) notes, while reading the annual report of the Régie du logement for the fiscal year 2014-2015, that rental housing owners are still seeing their investment and their time reduced by delays of almost two years.

"The delay for a common cause, such as - for instance - a disordered peaceful enjoyment of the premises, takes an average of 20.3 months before being heard. And this is only the first hearing date. One does not speak yet of possible postponements and the reception of the decision," says the APQ.

Although a slight decrease of 6.3% of cases of non-payment of rent is reported, 40,905 files were submitted in 2014-2015, more than half of the total number of files, i.e. 69,821.

The Association of Quebec Landlords (APQ) reminds you that the tenant who has notified his departure must move out on the last day of his lease, i.e. on June 30th for all leases ending on the 30th of June.

“There are only a few days left for rental property owners before the big moving day. One last tip: go see your tenants, if it is not already done, and ask them about the time of their moving to their new place. You can be sure that your tenants prepare their moving well,” says the APQ.

One of the worst situations that can happen on the 1st of July, or at any end date of the lease, is that the tenant decides to stay in the dwelling. Your former tenant, “theoretically”, does not want to leave anymore and your new tenant is at the front door. If you are unable to make him understand reason, you will need to open a file at the Régie du logement for “Eviction of an occupant without right.” This request is given priority.

The same tenants whom the associations defend.
