Subletting in an HLM (Low Rent Housing)?

In Paris, France, a tenant was punctually subletting part of her housing with Airbnb while the regulations forbade it.

Madame challenged her eviction explaining that if she subleased her housing on Airbnb, it was because of financial difficulties related to the amount of her income (« 2250 euros per month »), while the Régie Immobilière (Real-Estate Board) of the City of Paris replied that she has « a salary of 2289 euros, alimony, and a family-support allowance, in respect of a rental rate representing less than a third of her income, i.e. a disposable income of 1,000 euros ».

But if a tenant who benefits from social housing wants to sublet this dwelling, does he have the right to do so?

The APQ in parliamentary committee for Bill 54: An Act to improve the legal situation of animals

The Association of Quebec Landlords (APQ) was adopted in committee to hear the views of the owners as one of the items legislated by the Bill is the abandonment of animals in a housing.

For owners of rental properties it is appreciated that greater accountability has been put into place for people who abandon their animals in their dwelling. Because each year many owners carry the heavy burden of managing a painful situation, both emotionally and operationally: we open the door of the housing and find that there are animals inside whereas the housing is empty.
