25. This By-law comes into force on 21 August 2001. It shall apply to any lease entered into or renewed from that date.
Notwithstanding the foregoing, for a lease in effect on 21 August 2001, for which the basic rent was calculated by considering the income earned by a child of occupant 1 or of his spouse who is aged between 18 and 20 years, section 8 of this By-law does not apply upon renewal of the lease and, where applicable, at subsequent renewals until that child has reached the age of 21, if:
(1) there has been no change in the composition of the household that was considered for the purposes of the preceding lease;
(2) that child continues to be occupant 2 for the purposes of determining the basic rent applicable to the renewed lease;
(3) the application of section 8 of this By-law entails for the household an increase in the minimum basic rent as determined under section 2 of the By-law respecting the conditions for the leasing of dwellings in low-rental housing (O.C. 251-92, 92-02-26).
In such case, the minimum basic rent applicable to the renewed lease is that determined pursuant to section 2 above.
