Under the Civil Code of Quebec, both landlords and tenants have rights and obligations to which they are bound to respect.
While residential leases are widespread, they are often misunderstood by tenants which leads to a plethora of legal issues.
RESIDENTIAL REAL ESTATE DISPUTES
The Rental Board is the competent court and forum for the legal disputes between a residential landlord and residential tenant.

STEP 1: CONSULT A LAWYER
Before undertaking legal procedures, it is recommended that you seek legal advice in order to fully inform yourself as to your rights and obligations. Often, a situation is more complicated than initially perceived.
This is why we believe that a lawyer specialized in real estate matters should fulfill the role of helping you acknowledge all possible options in a world of delays and procedures that may be overwhelming for the uninitiated.
STEP 2: LETTER OF DEMAND
Prior to institute legal proceedings, the first step is to send a letter of demand as quickly as possible to remind the person that it is in default and to remedy its default. Failure to remedy his default can result in a legal proceeding and a judgment may be rendered against him.
