Decision from the Rental Board

Most claims from landlords at the Rental Board seeks the resiliation of a lease and eviction of the tenant within a certain period.

If the Tenant remedies his default, a judgment may become moot and the tenant may have rights to remain in the premises.

Therefore, if the tenant meets his obligations and pays the arrears of re nt or ceases to infringe the lease before the judgement or the eviction, he may not be evicted from the premises, or the eviction may be suspended.

Consequently, it is in the best interests of the landlord to ensure that any judgments reflect all the defaults of the tenant to ensure that the expulsion order against the tenant may be executed appropriately and in a timely manner.

If you wish to contest a Rental Board’s decision, please note that it is possible to apply for a number of different recourses such as correction, revocation, review, or an appeal of the judgment to the Court of Quebec. However, the appropriate recourse will depend on the circumstances of each case and the reasoning behind the grounds for contestation.
