The Association of Quebec Landlords (APQ) explains that it is of the utmost importance that in the venomous situation of bedbugs, both landlords and tenants try to alleviate the situation.

It is true that the problem of bedbugs remains real, but it is also especially important to be conscious of the fact that the tenants’ awareness-making remains laborious, according to the Association of Quebec Landlords (APQ).

“The landlords are often facing situations where tenants refuse to collaborate in preventing access to housing infected with bedbugs,” says Martin Messier, president of the APQ.

In such situations, it is clear that the problem of bedbugs gets worse as well as the long waiting times at the Régie, causing thereby a difficult process for the parties, according to the APQ.

The APQ positions itself then by explaining that it becomes difficult to act quickly, which aggravates the situation. To enable us to deal with a situation of bedbugs effectively, it is essential to educate both tenants and landlords.
