Theft, or non-payment of rent: Some unfortunate situations on July 1, and Pictures of Housings
The Association des Propriétaires du Québec (APQ) draws up a portrait of the situation during moving day.
We often talk about dirty housing, theft, unpaid rents, low vacancy rates, but as D-Day approaches on July 1, what exactly is the current situation?
Animals and housing – No, the owner is not protected by the law
Montreal, June 27, 2022 --- As July 1 approaches, various organizations, such as the SPA (i.e., la Société Protectrice des Animaux de Québec), are campaigning for the prohibition of the clause allowing rental building owners to prohibit animals in a dwelling. These organizations argue that the law already protects landlords since they can open a file at the Administrative Housing Tribunal (TAL) for damages.
How to solve various problems between tenants and rental housing owners? With a security deposit!

As July 1 approaches quickly now, we see more and more rental dwellings left behind dirty or even unsanitary, by their former occupant.
