Caution! The number of undesirable tenants is increasing!

Our rental evaluation services allow us to notice a significant increase in candidates for whom the records are inadequate.

Indeed, in spite of the decrease in the number of evaluations with the coming of the rental season on July 1, we have noticed a significant increase in the number of bad records while 27% of the tenants checked have civil or criminal records or at the Rental Board.

The APQ asks this year for your support to take legal action against ALL the tenants who leave their housing in a poor condition and to reward the good tenants.

Enough is enough! Every year we deplore a significant number of dwellings that are left in woeful condition by the tenant.

Many owners communicate with us regularly to talk to us about the difficulties that concern a situation of non-payment of the rent.

There is first the introduction of the request before the Régie du logement. For many, taking time off from daily duties is complicated and time-consuming. Time which they simply do not have. For others the notification by a bailiff or the fact of sending a letter by registered mail is a major inconvenience.

Will rental property owners be forced to accept animals?

Some proponents of animal rights are asking for a legislative amendment aiming at requiring owners of rental housing to accept pets.
The Association of Quebec Landlords (APQ) thinks that this would be a serious mistake. Firstly because the animals by themselves are rarely the problem. The problems most usually occur because the tenant who is responsible for them does not assume his/her obligations properly.

Votre locataire ne paie pas son loyer. Vous n'avez pas le temps d'aller à la Régie du logement. Vous attendez, un mois, deux mois de plus avant de finalement vous déplacer à la Régie du logement pour introduire une demande en résiliation de bail en raison du retard dans le paiement du loyer.Your tenant does not pay the rent. And you do not have the time to go to the Rental Board. You wait, one month, two months longer, before finally going to the Régie du logement to submit a request for termination of the lease because of the delay in the payment of the rent.
