When becoming the new owner of a rental building: how to manage the leases concluded before but poorly respected?

First, a tenant has the right to remain in the premises, in accordance with Section 1936 of the C.c.Q. This duty to respect the terms of the residential lease remains, even when the building in which he lives is sold to a new owner, principle coupled with Section 1886 of the C.c.Q. which states that the lease remains in force in spite of such a change.

Moreover, generally, the lease contains a section where one finds mainly information on the obligations and rights of the tenant and the landlord. It turns out to be very useful since it gives information relating to rules of law that are often mandatory and therefore it allows both parties to be adequately informed.

Ignorance of the law

Who has not heard yet the saying that “no one is supposed to ignore the law”? In most cases ignorance of the law is not an excuse for committing a wrongful act or failing to act, such as the response to a notice when necessary. In reality, however, it is almost impossible to know all the laws that apply in every situation with legal implications. Everyone, however, has his share of responsibility as far as informing himself is concerned.
