Frequently Asked Questions

Can we sell a building or a real estate business?
We buy residential rental properties. Contact us at and discuss it with our experts to discover the advantages of selling your asset to one of our collective real estate companies.
What is affordable housing?

There are several definitions of “affordable housing”. ACHAT and its members define it as follows:

  • housing owned by a non-speculative collective enterprise
  • housing whose rental price remains affordable in perpetuity
  • housing whose rental price is at least 20% below the market price
  • housing whose affordability index increases over time (rental prices increase less rapidly than market prices)

The terms ”social housing” and “community housing” essentially both refer to affordability in perpetuity (with or without specific services for tenants).

Is there housing available at the moment?
Individual members should be contacted to verify availability of housing. However, ACHAT is working to set up a centralized rental platform that will make your life easier.
Where can I find help for tenants?

Housing committees are at the service of tenants, find yours on the RCLALQ website.

You can also find legal help for tenants via Legal Clinics, Novum or Juripop.
