Some Montreal landlords are banning the use of cannabis in their rental units.
As the likely legalization of marijuana looms, many are currently renewing leases with a new clause that forbids tenants from smoking up.
Rental property owners are asking tenants to sign new leases which would include a ban on smoking cannabis anywhere on the property.
Landlords say they’re concerned the legalization of marijuana will cause a problem akin to complaints from neighbours about noise or cigarette smoking.
If the smell is too strong, just like if noise is too loud, it can be considered a nuisance that affects the quality of life of the other tenants.
Landlord Christian Perron said tenants who are annoyed by marijuana smoke could see their rent reduced.
