Under the “conditions,” it is also worth mentioning the duration of the agreement and the date on which the lease begins and expires. The rent recovery information should also be available somewhere, as well as mention of the increase in rents: when, how much to expect and how much announcement should be made. If you think you want to sublet your apartment, the rental agreement must indicate that you can do so. However, tenants who do so would be ill-advised! A tenancy agreement is a binding document that describes your rights and obligations as a tenant as well as those of your landlord. As such, it will settle your experience as a tenant in rental accommodations – for better or for worse! In the case of an oral lease, the taker must provide the taker with the “mandatory letter” form within 10 days of the contract. This form is sold in the offices of the Housing Authority (Article 1895 Civil Code of Quebec). A tenant who is disturbed by the behaviour of another tenant or who does not respect the agreement between them (for example. B he does not pay his share of the rent) has legal action against the defaulting tenant. The law requires that a tenant be entitled to a copy of the lease within 10 days of signing (Article 1895 desbgbus de Québec). On the other hand, a resident has rights and duties towards the other tenant of the apartment. They must then refer to the written or oral agreement reached between them. This does not apply to a lease agreement with a fixed period that must be respected until it expires, except in cases provided for by law or with the agreement of the lessor.

If there is no other agreement, the rent must be paid on the first day of each month (or weekly, if it is a weekly weekly weekly rental contract). The rent is considered late if it is not paid until the day of the due date. Some agreements are made verbally between tenants and landlords, and in some provinces this is accepted. However, it is always best to put everything on paper to protect yourself. In addition, the common rent offers the possibility of sharing a larger dwelling, household tasks, etc.
