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.
