"A tenant will help me getting by until the end of the month and maintain a presence in the apartment until I will return to live at the dwelling when I need it," you may tell yourself. Your neighbour may have done so, or your brother-in-law, during a buffer period when his residence was empty, and the tenant left after a year and he was able to regain possession of his house. One would like this to be as easy as it sounds. In this particular situation your neighbour or your brother-in-law were probably lucky that the tenant left at the end of his lease, quite simply. The situation could have been much different though. We can never stress it enough: the tenant has the right to maintain occupancy of the premises, that is to say, his lease is renewed automatically.

The co-owner alleges that it was not he who had installed this improper pipe but rather the one he bought the condo from. Sued for collateral by the current co-owner the former co-owner was ordered to pay damages plus interest in the same amount to the current co-owner.

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.
