Condominium Corporations cannot use the Provincial Court of Alberta or the RTDRS to terminate a lease, repossess or obtain an order to clear the rental premises. If you move from your rented premises, you must inform your landlord. Notice periods depend on the nature of the lease you have. If a tenant commits a substantial breach of the rental agreement, the lessor may ask the RTDRS or the court to terminate the tenancy or to give the tenant at least 14 days` notice in advance to end the tenancy. The date of termination and the day of the extract cannot be included within fourteen days, bringing the required termination to 16 days. If tenants and landlords are unable to agree on a dispute, one of them can contact an information officer at the Consumer Contact Centre. Please note that CPLEA does not provide any accommodation rental or dispute resolution forms. If you are looking for forms, please read: The City of Edmonton`s Landlord and Tenant Advisory Board (LTAB) has worked with tenants and landlords to raise awareness of their rights and obligations and resolve rental issues. We value the relationships we have built over many years with our owner clients. Before a tenant moves in, the tenant and landlord must agree to the terms of the lease in a contract called a housing or lease agreement. For example, tenants and landlords can agree that the lease is valid for a fixed term of 2 years, from January 1, 2016 to December 31, 2018.
The lease agreement ends automatically on December 31, 2018. At the beginning of a lease, tenants and landlords should agree on who can live in rental units. The names of all tenants should be included in the rental agreement. If a person not listed in the rental agreement resides in the rental premises, the lessor has the right to leave that person at least 14 days in advance. If the tenant has moved, the landlord can notify the unauthorized occupant at least 48 hours in advance. In Alberta, residential leases can be periodic or temporary. A temporary lease begins and ends on certain dates. The RTA defines specific responsibilities for landlords and tenants.
Even if these responsibilities are not included in the residential tenancy agreement, landlords and tenants must meet the requirements of the legislation. The lease is a contract concluded between the landlord and the tenant before the tenant moves. The agreement can be written, oral or tacit, but the written is always better because it provides evidence, there should be a problem. The landlord is responsible for maintaining the rental premises at all times, not just at the beginning of a lease, reasonably safe and in good condition. The standards of safety and comfort are set by the Public Health Act and the Housing Ordinance. If the lessor terminates you through a periodic rental agreement, the lessor must justify in writing the termination of the lease, identify the premises, indicate the date on which the tenant must move and indicate the notice period as follows: A tenant who sublets or assigns the premises may or may not be responsible for the rest of the housing rental agreement, and can choose: Seek legal advice.
