Renewing or Modifying a Lease

Notifying the Lessor of the Non-Renewal of a Lease when no Notice of Modification of the Lease Has Been Received

If the lessor has not sent a notice of modification of the lease and the lessee does not wish to renew, the lessee must send written notice to that effect to the lessor within the period prescribed.

The Régie du logement strongly recommends using the form Notice of Non-Renewal of the Lease by the Tenant, as it meets the statutory requirements.

Proof of Delivery
The Régie recommends that the lessee notify the lessor in one of the following ways:

  • By registered mail
  • By hand (obtain an acknowledgement of receipt)
  • By any other means enabling the lessee to obtain proof that the notice of non-renewal has been sent and received

In the event of a hearing, proof may be required that the notice has been sent and received.
