Bill tabled to limit the right to amend a lease for a new housing
The Association des Propriétaires du Québec (APQ) is against this bill, which once again wants to limit the rights of rental housing owners.
Remember that clause F of the mandatory lease form, which is discussed here, is an important clause for any owner of new housing.
If checked, this clause provides that the owner can modify, in the first 5 years of existence of the building, the price of the rents without the tenant being able to refuse the increases transmitted.

The repossession of a housing is one of the most restrictive processes for a homeowner; not everyone easily repossesses a house that he wants to take back!
Subletting in an HLM (Low Rent Housing)?
In Paris, France, a tenant was punctually subletting part of her housing with Airbnb while the regulations forbade it.
Madame challenged her eviction explaining that if she subleased her housing on Airbnb, it was because of financial difficulties related to the amount of her income (« 2250 euros per month »), while the Régie Immobilière (Real-Estate Board) of the City of Paris replied that she has « a salary of 2289 euros, alimony, and a family-support allowance, in respect of a rental rate representing less than a third of her income, i.e. a disposable income of 1,000 euros ».
But if a tenant who benefits from social housing wants to sublet this dwelling, does he have the right to do so?
