AT WhAT point are you considered a tenant if you are being assigned a lease?

Good Morning,

I have recently been assigned a lease to an apartment, from the ‘assigner’ whose lease will expire on March 31st, 2021.

I am assuming that due to Quebec’s tenancy laws, my lease will be automatically renewed at that point.

I have already signed the the assignment agreement, but have not yet paid the first month’s rent. I have passed the credit and background checks.

My question is: At what point am I considered a tenant under Quebec law?


Thanks!

It would help to know for what purpose are you asking? (Ie, what right are you trying to exercise, or what concerns do you have?)

Also, if your lease was assigned (as opposed to sublet) then it will renew according to normal procedures.
