Terminating the lease in the case of an elderly person

Terminating the lease in the case of an elderly person

Sometimes one begins a lease, and one has to put an end to it for different reasons in life. The tenant then has different options available to him in order to comply with his contract, namely the assignment of his lease or sublease of his dwelling, and in most cases he cannot put an end to his contract without the landlord’s authorization.

There are various exceptions allowing the tenant to terminate his contract prematurely, and leaving for a seniors’ home is part of it. However, it is not a question of just any residence in any kind of situation. It must be a residential and long-term care centre, an intermediate resource service, or a private residence for seniors where nursing or personal assistance are provided in view of his health situation, or any other place of accommodation where such care or services are offered to him.
