Whether it be repairing a brick wall, the balconies, the parking lot, the roofing, from landscaping to the foundation, an owner of income property should know about the consequences of this work and his obligations to his tenants. 1 – THE NOTICE: The obligatory notice mechanism is required under section 1922 for work carried out inside the housing only. Thus, external work does not require formal notice being given to tenants. This rule was confirmed in 2012 in Reid v. 1745 Cedar Ave Inc. 31-120621-042. However, a courtesy notice given in advance to your tenants will allow them to take steps to minimize the impact of these works on their lives. For instance, a holiday taken at the same time, working with the family rather than at home, etc… There is no delay time to do it since this notice is not binding. This approach is a way to help maintaining a good relationship between you and your tenants and possibly reduce the damages claimed.

The Association of Québec Landlords (APQ) notes with regret that the rental property owners are, once again, the big forgotten ones of Mr. Leitao’s budget.

“After LogiRenov, it is now Renovert that is offered to homeowners. But make no mistake! Not to all owners! If you have a dwelling and you want to renovate to improve the housing conditions, you will receive nothing!” says Martin Messier, President of the APQ.

Also, 1200 supplementary new rental units will be granted in 2016-2017 at a cost of $5 million.
