Paying your rent

Rent is due on the first day of the month and can be paid by preauthorized payment.

Calculating rent

Your rent consists of two components: basic rent (25% of income for all members of the household) and building occupancy expenses. The OMHM bases your rent on your household's income for the year preceding the lease start date. This amount is reduced by 10% in the case of employment income.

What your rent covers

Your basic rent covers heating, hot water, and city, school and water taxes.

Building occupancy expenses

Some monthly expenses, such as electricity consumption, air conditioner use, and parking fees, are in addition to the basic rent.

Supplement

A supplementary charge also applies for any other member of the household who is at least 18 years of age and not a student.

Rent reduction

If, during the term of your lease, your income or that of a member of your household decreases, you can request a rent reduction. Please speak with your rental agent for more information on this subject. To obtain such a reduction, you must make a written request to your rental agent and provide proof of your income decrease by including your pay stub or a copy of your pay cheque showing your new gross income.

Your rent depends on the size of your apartment and its location. Your rent does not cover electricity, heating or parking.
