Minimizing the damage following a housing abandonment

When a lease is terminated because of wrongdoing by the tenant(s), be it either at a termination by a judge of the Régie du logement for non-payment, or because of noise causing serious harm, or whether it is during an automatic termination, or when the tenant abandons the dwelling for no reason, taking his movable goods with him/her and ceasing to pay the rent, the landlord is entitled to contractual damages with interest because of such termination. This damage is usually qualified as a relocation allowance.

The Régie du logement re-iterates that a tenant may waive the public order of protection

In a previous article we discussed a decision of the Régie du logement which recognized that a tenant could give up the public order of protection.(1) The public order of protection prevents the parties from condoning a lease agreement that goes against the sections of the Civil Code of Quebec. The parties could not agree that the landlord would have the right to increase the rent by giving notice to modify the lease, one month before the end of the lease for a one-year lease. Under the Civil Code, the landlord may give this notice, at least three (3) months but not more than six (6) months, before the end of the lease.
