Renting in Montreal

Renting in Montreal comes with several rights and responsibilities intended to protect both renters and landlords alike. There are a lot of myths about renting in Montreal that even locals will tell you as if they were fact. Part of the reason for this is that the rules are so well established that most people don’t run into serious problems personally. As a result, they tell you local horror stories heard from a friend of a friend. The reality is that the Regie de Logement Quebec has a long-standing system established to help protect renters from abuse and to give landlords recourse against bad tenants. If you ever have a serious problem regarding your apartment or landlord, you should contact the Regie immediately to find out what your legal rights and recourses are.
