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 APQ not only informs you that a file exists at the Rental Board. As always, we go further to better support you, so that you will have the date of the decision, the apartment concerned and the amount of the decision in the case of non-payment of rent. Similarly, if the APQ finds a criminal or civil record you will know the date, the address concerned and the offense committed. It is important, before making an informed choice, to know the nature of the offense. Your decision will perhaps not be the same if your tenant has been in breach of the traffic code at one time or if he was arrested for armed assault.

The Association of Quebec Landlords (APQ) questions the willingness of the government to not reform the rental law which is 30 years old now. Tenants associations disseminate press releases on housing of which the tenants take possession and that are dirty. But who has made the housing dirty, or even rendered it unsanitary? The same tenants whom the associations defend.

The parking lot of your building has reached the end of its useful life and the asphalt must be redone; you should put a coat of sealer on the asphalt or even redo the parking lines; so you must tell your tenants to organize the site. You have sent a notice to each tenant and you are sure they are aware and that they must evacuate the parking lot. You even posted a notice at the entrance and exit of the building.

However, the lease section to maintain the price of rents should be abolished altogether. Indeed, the APQ considers it necessary to let the market control the rental price of a dwelling following the departure of a tenant: “It is simply outrageous to see that the Government maintains its position on control of the rental price of a dwelling even when the tenant has put an end to the lease,” concludes Martin Messier, President of the APQ.
