Régie du logement - Taux d'ajustement de loyer 2020 : Des taux dérisoires et des dommages de plus en plus chers!

L'Association des Propriétaires du Québec (APQ) ne peut que déplorer, qu'encore cette année, la perception des locataires face aux augmentations de loyer sera faussée.

Taux pour les travaux majeurs inacceptable

Avec un retour sur investissement de plus de 32 ans, il est inconcevable de demander aux propriétaires d'entretenir leurs immeubles et d'investir dans l'efficacité énergétique : un taux qui permettrait un retour sur 10-12 ans serait à préconiser.

L'Association des Propriétaires du Québec (APQ) revendique un changement complet de la méthode de fixation de loyer.
"Cette année, le taux est légèrement plus haut soit 3.1% mais cela ne signifie pas que les propriétaires peuvent investir en 2020. Cela veut simplement signifier que le retour sur investissement ne sera plus de 40 ans mais de 32 ans." d'ajouter Martin Messier.

Prenons l'exemple de la maison saccagée à Sainte-Calixte avec simplement des travaux majeurs à 100 000$ :
La propriétaire aurait droit à une augmentation de 235.00$ par mois.
Combien d'années pour un retour sur investissement avec les taux de la Régie? 32 ans
ET Hypothèque de 100 000$ sur 20 ans à 3.49%, le paiement serait de 578,16$ par mois

Election 2019 and Owning Up to Canada’s Two-tier Tax System
