Make the most out of your rentals this year! Stay up to date with Quebec’s 2023 Rent Increase guidelines, summarized for you below.
There is no limit on rent increases in Quebec for 2023. However, the Regie du Logement has published its recommended increase rates corresponding to the type of dwelling. If the landlord provides a tenant with proper written notice, both parties have to agree on the proposed amount in order for a rent increase to happen on a residential unit.
The landlord must give the tenant proper written notice of the rent increase before it takes effect.
Use the forms available from the Tribunal Administratif du Logement to give proper notice. Don’t forget, if you do not give proper notice, or do not come to an agreement with the tenant on the new rent amount, your tenant can dispute it within 1 month of receiving the notice.
If the tenant does not respond to the notice of rent increase, it is presumed that they have agreed on the new rent amount proposed by the landlord. If the tenant disputes the notice of rent increase, the landlord has 1 month after receiving the tenant’s notice of objection to apply to the Tribunal Administratif du Logement for a rent increase.
