Tribunal administratif du logement

This section provides you with tools so you can calculate a rent increase. There are two ways to do so.
You can use the online form Calculation 2021 Tool (in French only). It is a shortened version of the Calculation 2021 form applicable to leases beginning after April 1, 2021. The income and expenses for the building must be indicated in the applicable boxes. The calculation of the rent increase is done automatically, in compliance with the Regulation respecting the criteria for the fixing of rent.
You can also print the PDF version of the Calculation 2021 form and complete it by hand.
We have provided a completed example of how to use the Calculation 2021 form to help you.
After filing an Application to modify the lease to have the Tribunal fix the rent, the lessor must complete a single copy of the form per immovable, even if there are several rents to be fixed.
You must NOTIFY the Necessary information regarding the fixing of rent form to each lessee appearing on the lease of the dwelling concerned by the application and for all applications for the fixing of the rent.
The original copy of the duly completed form and proof of notification to each lessee must be filed with the Tribunal administratif du logement within 90 days of sending the form. Each proof of notification filed with the Tribunal must clearly identify the lessee and record concerned.
If your form concerns several applications, you must clearly indicate the record numbers of all the applications on the form.
If you do not fulfill those obligations within 90 days of sending the form, your application will be dismissed.
If those requirements are met, the Tribunal administratif du logement will summon you to a hearing, where you must present the statements and invoices to support the amounts entered on the form.
If expenses apply to non-residential premises, or to certain dwellings only, you must be able to provide details.
If you recently acquired the immovable and are unable to obtain the required documents, you may ask an administrative judge or a special clerk of the Tribunal to issue a subpoena requiring the previous owner to attend the hearing and bring the documents necessary to support your application. The subpoena must be served by bailiff, at your expense, at least three days before the hearing. The subpoena may also be issued by your attorney, if applicable.
The term “immovable” usually refers to the building in which the dwelling whose rent is to be fixed is located. Depending on the situation, it may include a group of adjacent and commonly managed buildings, a rooming house, a mobile home park or a dwelling held in divided co-ownership.
