The Association of Quebec Landlords (APQ) declares war on bad payers : In search of Facebook

MONTREAL, QUEBEC--(Marketwired - Dec. 12, 2014) - The Association of Quebec Landlords (APQ) is pleased to announce that it is offering a new service for all rental property owners in Quebec: the APQ search notice.

Thanks to the APQ network of contacts,in partnership with the RPHL, we will issue the search notices on the Facebook and Twitter pages of the APQ and the RPHL.

"Thousands of residential property owners are getting decision seach year (see table below) but for lack of money, time and available resources, they cannot enforce their decisions. To recover the sums lost for which the tenant is found guilty, the owners are left alone to fend for themselves.We will help tenants who forgot to pay to remember the importance of meeting their obligations."

By completing a simplified questionnaire, the Association of Quebec Landlords (APQ) will send the search notice on a dedicated Facebook page as well as on Twitter.

Nothing is easier! The reply form will be available for 30 days to anyone likely to inform the owner and areport will be sent to the applicant after this time.

No fee and a possibility to recover and enforce the judgment thanks to the largest network of contacts in Quebec!

"The owners have the right to have their judgment enforced. Rampage of a housing, leaving it without paying, is an act punishable by law. The APQ is proud to contribute so that justice is done,"adds Martin Messier.

"With more than 30-year-old laws, with no safety deposit,with a G clause affecting the right of ownership of rental housing, with negligible rental rate increases, it is good to see that one can rely on the APQ, a dynamic and credible force that targets its demands and services to balance the scales!" concludes the President of the APQ.

Founded in 1984, the Quebec Landlords Association(APQ) is the most important association to offer services to rental property owners in all regions of Quebec. It also offers an assessment service of tenants which is unique in Quebec.
