Caution

The purpose of the Website is to assist its users in their day-to-day management of rental housing and all elements and individuals related to rental housing. It is the responsibility of the owner/property manager and his/her management team to complete all necessary and legal documents as agreed to the Tribunal administratif du logement when renting units, where applicable, with the understanding that BLOC SOLUTIONS is not involved in the rental cycle. To be transparent to potential tenants who use the site, the phone number indicated in the advertisement and on the sign of the Property for rent must be that of the landlord. If the rental of the Property is entrusted to a third party, it is not allowed to refer potential tenants to that third party from the contents of the advertisement (phone number, email, description, etc.) or the sign. Failure to do so will result in the advertisement being removed from the Website with no possibility of reimbursement.

While BLOC SOLUTIONS makes best efforts to maintain the security and integrity of the Website, BLOC SOLUTIONS does NOT MAKE ANY WARRANTIES OR REPRESENTATIONS CONCERNING ACCOMMODATION, AS TO THE VALIDITY OR ACCURACY OF THEIR DESCRIPTIONS, OR THE ABILITY OF LANDLORDS TO RENT PROPERTIES OR THE ABILITY OF TENANTS TO RENT THEM.
