Your right to stay as a tenant

This document answers basic questions about your right to renew your lease and receive compensation if evacuated from your apartment during major repairs.

Your right to refuse a rent increase

Document from the Regroupement des Comités Logement et Associations de Locataires du Québec (RCLALQ) on rent increases. 

Rent increase calculation

Form from the Rental Board (Régie du Logement) that helps you calculate if the rent increase you got is fair.

Cockroaches

Information leaflet on cockroaches

Bedbugs

Information leaflet on bedbugs

Formal Demand (template)

The first official step if a landlord is not addressing repairs, safety and/or pests is to write a letter and have it sent by registered mail (from the post office). This letter must be written in the language of the lease. The letter attached provides the basic format for a letter to a landlord (available in French and English). This step is necessary for filing a complaint with the Rental board (Régie du logement) and the city inspectors. The city inspectors can be contacted without a letter if it is a safety emergency. For example, no locks or broken entryway door, missing fire detectors, blocked fire escapes

Your rights as a tenant
