Probably easier to get help moving this weekend than it would be in Montreal
I'm Canadian and I had no idea!
That’s absurd and kind of awesome.
I wonder how landlords cope? It seems like things like assessing whether to refund damage deposits, and doing routine between-renter cleaning, repairs, painting, etc would be very difficult if the turnover happens in the same day. And what about prospective tenants getting a look at the place before they sign a lease? Must be pretty crazy!
Lawrence is similar with nearly all rental leases beginning August 1. It is a mess. It also made it hard and expensive to find a place if you don't want an August-August rental.
A lot of college towns are that way (same here in Oxford), but the students mostly move out in May or June, with new ones moving in in August - leaving a bit of cleaning and maintenance gap.
