A Students Guide to Renting Part 4

Updated: Feb 10, 2020

This is our final installment on Renting in Montreal. For our new students you will be in student housing for the first four months. That does not mean that you do not hold the same responsibilities and rights as any other tenant however. Consider it a practice run for the real thing!



Breaking leases: Breaking a lease is not the same thing as deciding not to renew. You may only break your lease under special circumstances; if your landlord is not doing necessary repairs or, fails to heat your apartment properly if it is included in the lease for instance. If you are a victim of spousal violence or your children are in danger of the same. Or, if you have special needs and need to relocate as a result, moving to an old folks’ home or care center for instance.
