Full text
44. Subject to the application of all municipal by-laws then in force and especially by-laws respecting the construction and alteration of immoveables in the municipality, the administrator may authorize the subdivision into several dwellings, of a large house occupied by a single lessee under a prolongation of a lease, upon such conditions as he may determine for the protection of the rights of such lessee and of the lessees of the new dwellings.
If such a subdivision is made without the authorization of the administrator, the lessor or the lessee of any dwelling resulting therefrom may obtain from the administrator the fixing of a reasonable rent for any such dwelling, on application made within sixty days of the lessee’s entry into possession.
