Renewing or Modifying a Lease
Régie du logement
If the lessor has not sent a notice of modification of the lease and the lessee does not wish to renew the lease, the lessee must send a written notice to that effect to the lessor within the prescribed time period. The Régie du logement strongly recommends using the model Notice of Non-Renewal of the Lease by the Tenant form, as it meets the statutory requirements. Proof of deliveryThe Régie recommends that the lessee notify the lessor in one of the following ways:
In the event of a hearing, proof that the notice has been sent and received may be required.
The notice must be sent to the lessor:
For example, for a lease for 12 months or more that ends on June 30, the lessee must send the notice of non-renewal to the lessor between January 1 and March 31. The postmark attests to compliance with the deadline. Note In the case of a lease for a room, the notice must be sent to the lessor between 10 and 20 days before the end of the lease if the lease is for a fixed term or before the desired termination of the lease if the lease is for an indeterminate term.
