Rental Increases 2021
No one wants to pay more rent. We are in the coldest part of the year  in Montreal, and it’s the time of year where tenants typically begin to receive notices of rental increase and lease modifications from their landlord. Each year, the percentage of average rental increases fluctuates, as they take into account all the rental components, which include taxes (municipal and school), insurance, and any renovations that were done in the building or in your apartment. As such, there is no fixed number for a fair rental increase, but you can use the Tribunal Administratif du Logement’s rent calculation tool for 2021 to determine what constitutes a reasonable rental increase for your dwelling.   … The following link contains the rent calculation tool for 2021, as well as information…
