Moving Day in Montreal is next week and many people are scrambling to get ready for the big day. While you've probably already found a place to live, many are still on the hunt.\nWhile July 1st fast approaches, many tenants are wondering what exactly their rights are when it comes to renting an apartment in the city. If you're a local, you know that some landlords might have shady practices.\nWhether you've rented in Montreal before or not, it's important to know your rights. Luckily, here at MTLBlog, we've looked into this for you! Thanks to this handy guide from the Régie du Logement Québec, we've outlined all the major tenants' rights that you need to know about.\nYour landlord cannot terminate your lease if your roommate moves out.\nThis happens sometimes, especially during this time of the year. If your landlord complains and threatens eviction, remind them that it's against the law.\nView this post on Instagram Say something Say something to me In the quiet hours of the night In the month of June When the sun sets late, behind the hills And we welcome darkness A post shared by Daniel Bromberg (@daniel.bromberg) on Jun 22, 2019 at 6:37am PDT\nYour landlord cannot modify a preexisting agreement without written consent.\nLet's say your new apartment was supposed to come with a parking space. By law, your landlord has to include that in the lease. If they rescind the parking space even though it's on the lease, that's illegal.\nView this post on Instagram #escaliersdemontréal ☁️ A post shared by Naomi Fontaine (@fleurde.lys) on May 13, 2019 at 1:21pm PDT\nYour landlord cannot ask you for additional fees or deposits on rent.\nIt's a well-known rule, yet most people fall into the trap. No landlord has the right to ask for more than the first month's rent when you sign your lease.\nREAD ALSO: Most Authentic Butter Chicken In Montreal\nYour landlord is not allowed to ask for private information.\nIf you're coming in from out of town, your landlord might ask you for your passport or visa papers, driver's license, etc. Don't give it to them. It's illegal for them to ask for anything other than one proof of I.D., proof of address, and date of birth to conduct a credit check.\nView this post on Instagram The beautiful days of spring are coming ahead!🙂👍🌸 • • • • • #perfect_worldplaces #bestworldpics#bestworldplaces #living_destinations#topstreetphoto #culturetrip#cbviews #hello_worldpics#theweekoninstagram#awesome_earthpix#awesome_phototrip #king_villages#king_shots #king_hdr#suitcasetravels #wonderful_places#bestcitybreaks #mtlmoments #mtl#voyaged #mybestcityshots#citiesoftheworld#travelworld_addiction#bestplacestogo #fuji_xseries#fujilove #theprettycities#alluring_villages #travel_drops#montreal A post shared by Karl Vibes (@karlvibes) on Apr 2, 2019 at 8:27am PDT\nYour landlord cannot enter your apartment without 24 hours notice.\nIf your apartment is up for rent, you're used to the constant parade of people in and out. However, your landlord needs to give you 24 hours notice before any apartment viewings. If they haven't they're breaking the law.\nView this post on Instagram Hochelaga-Maisonneuve, quartier en pleine expansion que j’ai découvert il y a 2 jours ☀️ [ Même après tout ce temps, je visite encore certains endroits telle une vraie touriste !
