Repossession of a Dwelling

Replying to a Landlord after Receiving a Notice of Repossession

To reply to a landlord after receiving a notice of repossession, the tenant must give written notice, within the period prescribed, of his or her agreement or refusal to vacate the dwelling.

The Régie du logement strongly recommends that tenants use the Reply to a Notice of Repossession form that it has drawn up for this purpose. This form meets all legal requirements. 

Proof of Receipt
It is recommended that the landlord be notified in one of the following ways:

  • by registered mail
  • by hand (obtain an acknowledgement of receipt)
  • by bailiff
  • by any other means that allows a proof of receipt to be obtained

In the event of a hearing, the bailiff may require a proof of receipt.
