Leases and the Québec Housing Authority
(Régie du logement)
In matters regarding residential leases, our office is able to assist you in front of the Rental Board (the Régie du logement), or, in appeal, before the Court of Québec, in cases involving problems between landlords and tenants. Whether the issue is one of collection of unpaid rent, the repossession of an accommodation, the peaceable enjoyment of the dwelling (for instance, excessive noise or poor sanitary conditions), we represent both the property owner as well as the tenant.
We are also active in the area of commercial leases, drawing up leases as well as taking on cases involving complaints pertaining to the rights and responsibilities of tenants and landlords by virtue of a lease or the Civil Code of Québec. Although the majority of cases we have undertaken have dealt with the collection of unpaid rent, we have also reached settlements in cases concerning the end of a lease or its automatic renewal, the repossession of the rented premises because of the change of use, and the illegal use of the rented premises.
