MANDATE OF THE QUEBEC LANDLORDS ASSOCIATION
has among its mandates to interact actively with governments through public consultations, governmental or quasi-governmental events, and a media presence on various topical issues.
Several regulations of more than 35 years old are causing headaches to owners of rental housing. Our actions affect multiple fields, all of them being in need of active representation, including, more in particular, the file of the Régie du logement which is dealing with a roll that is ever more busy particularly because of non-payment of rent.
On this page you will find the latest changes submitted and we will inform you of changes as events present themselves.
