The repossession of a housing: you are entitled to it!

Housing repossession is a fundamental right that rental property owners can exercise. But often this housing repossession is accompanied by binding and even unfair rules according to many rental property owners. Owners are entitled to the repossession of their house!

The repossession of a housing is one of the most restrictive processes for a homeowner; not everyone easily repossesses a house that he wants to take back!

Unlike the possession of any other property, the owner must respect:
- deadlines;
- he cannot take it back for whoever he wants;
- he cannot take it back depending on who is currently renting the dwelling;
- the tenant can refuse;
- he will have to pay compensation to the tenants in many cases;
- he will even have to prove his good faith.

Who can find a more restrictive process of a person’s property rights?

Every year we see dramatic situations of new rental property owners who access a property through the purchase of a plex. These new owners are already moving to their new home on July 1st, and there they hit a wall: they discover the minimum 6-month period to notify tenants who must move if the lease is a lease of 12 months or more, often it is too late for that! Or with a tight budget in which all expenses are calculated so as not to exceed their limits, tenants refuse termination of the lease and ask for compensation.

The Association des Propriétaires du Québec (APQ) is of the opinion that the repossession of a housing must be one of the major changes that rental law urgently needs.

It is inconceivable that a property owner cannot use his property according to his needs.

The Association of Québec Landlords (APQ) hopes that the government will take a major turn by reforming rental law that has not been amended since 1981.

It should be noted that the repossession of a housing has already been amended with Bill 492, an Act to amend the Civil Code in order to protect the rights of senior tenants. But this amendment came to further increase the right to repossess housing by imposing additional conditions when the current tenant is a senior.

The Association des Propriétaires du Québec (APQ) is always available to submit its recommendations and findings.
