Renewing or Modifying a Lease

Notifying the Lessee of a Rent Increase or the Modification of Another Condition of the Lease

To notify a lessee of a rent increase or a modification of another condition of the lease, the lessor must send the lessee a written notice of modification containing the required information within the period prescribed.

Lessees can obtain the form entitled Notice of Rent Increase and Modification of Another Condition of the Lease from the Régie du logement. The Régie strongly recommends that lessees use the form, which meets the applicable legal requirements.

Proof of Delivery
The Régie recommends that the lessor send the notice of modification to the lessee in one of the following ways: 

  • Registered mail
  • Hand delivery (obtain a delivery confirmation)
  • Any other means that provides the lessor with a valid proof of delivery

In the event of a hearing, the commissioner may require proof that the notice was delivered.
