Residential Lease

Entering into a Residential Lease

To enter into a residential lease, complete the form corresponding to the type of rental concerned: 
  • Lease of a Dwelling
  • Lease for a Dwelling in Low-Rental Housing
  • Schedule 6 to the Lease: Services Offered to the Lessee by the Lessor (if services of a personal nature are to be included in the lease entered into between a senior and a private seniors' residence, or if particular services are to be provided to a person with a disability, for example)
  • Lease of Land Intended for the Installation of a Mobile Home
  • Lease of a Dwelling in a Cooperative
  • Lease in an Educational Institution
  • Mandatory Writing in the Case of an Oral Lease
The above forms are available at the Régie du logement, Les Publications du Québec and its service outlets and in certain bookstores and convenience stores (dépanneurs).
Lease with a private seniors' residence
Before signing a lease with a private seniors' residence, we strongly recommend:
  • Reading the following documents
    • the welcome package provided by the residence, which contains information on the services provided and their cost, the general operating rules of the residence and how to lodge a complaint in the event of dissatisfaction (residences housing 6 residents or more must provide this document to prospective residents)
    • the residence's code of ethics, which details the manner in which staff and volunteers must treat residents and their loved ones
  • Using the online service Registre des résidences privées pour aînés (Register of private seniors’ residences) (French only) to verify whether the residence holds a certificate of compliance
