Alberta Periodic Tenancy Agreement

A periodic lease agreement means that no end date is included in the residential lease agreement. The tenant can continue to reside in the property until the tenant or landlord sends the termination of the lease. There are different types of periodic rentals, including monthly periodic rentals (for which the tenant agrees to rent monthly and pay the monthly rent) and weekly periodic rentals (for which the tenant agrees to rent week after week and pay weekly rent). The lessor must pay your deposit with interest within 10 days of your departure from the premises. If the lessor does not return your deposit within 10 days, he must provide a written statement in which he creates the reasons why he did not pay it. If you owe money for rent, cleaning, damage to the apartment or other costs related to the premises, the landlord will withdraw this amount. The owner must provide a statement of account showing how the deductions were issued. It is an offence for the owner not to comply with these requirements and there is a fine of up to US$5,000 for non-compliance. Contact your local Alberta Government Services office if you have not been paid. Disagreements over the deductions made can be resolved by bringing an action in the Small Claims Court Court Of the Provincial Court. If you refuse to move at the end of your tenancy, the landlord can obtain a court order and have you forcibly removed by a civil enforcement service. The landlord can bring an action for damages such as loss of rent and expenses of the new tenant while waiting for you to party.

You must receive notifications on all applications from the Tribunal so that you can be heard by the courts. If the lessor terminates you for a periodic lease, the lessor must justify in writing why the rental agreement is terminated, identify the premises, indicate the date on which the tenant must move and indicate the notice period as follows: If you leave your rented premises, you must inform your landlord. Notice periods depend on the nature of the lease you have. Boarding is for accommodation where the owner provides meals both in the room and in certain situations and where the owner does not live in the residence. The lessor decides whether the contract will be a fixed or periodic term. The Residential Tenancy Act is always enforced through any agreement entered into by the owners and tenants themselves. If the law remains silent on a particular subject, landlords and tenants can accept everything as long as it is not illegal. For example, the rental agreement usually contains conditions for whether pets are allowed, which is not covered by law. Landlords and tenants must make their own pet deals. If a lessor wishes to carry out major renovations where the rental premises must be empty or if the lessor intends to transform the premises into a condo, the lessor must give the tenant a period of one year to terminate the periodic lease.

Major renovations do not include painting, flooring replacement, or routine maintenance. If you move without properly informing the landlord, the landlord may refuse to accept your move while considering you a tenant. If the landlord refuses to accept your departure as the end of the lease, the landlord can sue you for the rental indemnity due until other tenants start a lease. You must pay the unpaid rent and the period during which the premises were empty. The temporary rental agreement ends without notice on the date indicated in the rental agreement. . . .
