When you've taken the time to read through the lease thoroughly (don't let the landlord rush you!), check to see that the lease mentions which province will regulate this agreement. Then validate the document with the date and your name and signature (make sure the landlord signs it too!). Keep a copy for your files, and don't hand any money over until you actually sign the lease.
The tenant will have to read their lease as most agreements automatically convert to a month-to-month lease (tenancy-at-will) if there is no termination by either party. In most cases, the landlord will send the tenant a Lease Extension Addendum before the original lease ends to extend the term. The extension will detail the new end date, along with any other changes, while maintaining the rest of the terms of the original lease agreement.

Security Deposit – This is the mount of deposit the landlord collects upfront before the renter moves in. The security deposit is usually 1 to 2 times the amount of the monthly rent and is returned to the tenant at the end of the lease term if nothing has been broken or damaged. Take a look at your local state laws as some states put a cap on the amount of security a landlord collect.

A landlord is required to deliver the dwelling in "good habitable condition" and the tenant is required to leave the dwelling  in "good habitable condition." In between, it is the landlord's responsibility to maintain upkeep. Request repairs to the super/janitor, where applicable, and, if needed, then follow up with the landlord. If there are neglect disputes, especially regarding urgent repairs follow up with the Regie.
You must provide proper notice to the landlord that you do not intend to renew the lease, before the lease expires. Notice must be given a certain amount of time before the lease expires, as dictated by statute in your jurisdiction. This amount of time is called the "notice period". Typically, the notice period is one month for leases with a term of one month or less, and two or three months for leases with a term of more than one month, but this will vary according to the jurisdiction. You should consult the governing statute for the jurisdiction the property is located in to find out the required notice period for your lease.
A: Usually if the tenant does not have a lot of credit history or is particularly young (such as a college student), then the landlord will require a cosigner or guarantor. Requiring a cosigner for the tenant is mainly for the landlord’s protection in case the tenant defaults on the lease.  In case the tenant defaults and cannot pay rent, the cosigner is responsible for paying the amount due to the landlord. The guarantor is usually someone in good financial standing or has excellent credit. Feel free to use a Lease Application in order to require any prospective tenants to undergo a credit check before allowing them to sign a lease agreement.
A lease with a predetermined end date, usually called a fixed term lease, is when the tenant agrees to rent the property for a certain period of time at a fixed price. This type of lease uses calendar dates to specify the start and end of the lease. At the end of a fixed term lease, the landlord and tenant can sign a new lease with updated dates and information or move on.

Additional occupants: The agreement may include a term restricting the number of occupants in a rental unit or requiring the landlord’s permission before additional occupants can live in the rental unit.  If additional occupants are added, a landlord can only increase the rent if the tenancy agreement includes a term allowing the rent to vary based on the number of occupants or the parties all agree to sign a new tenancy agreement.  


Alberta doesn’t have standard leases or residential tenancy agreement forms. This means that the landlord and the tenant can make up their own agreements, or they can use forms available from organizations across Alberta that develop them. Landlords and tenants should make sure that they are using an agreement that has been developed for Alberta, as each province has different renting laws.
An option to purchase refers to a lease which allows the tenant to buy the property at an agreed price during the lease term. Usually the tenant pays the landlord a non-refundable option deposit and in exchange the tenant has the exclusive right to buy the property from the landlord. The tenant is given only a certain amount of time to exercise the option. If the Tenant takes advantage of the option, the Tenant's option deposit will go towards the purchase price of the property. If the Tenant does not take advantage of the option, the Landlord will get to keep the deposit and neither party will have any rights or claims against each other concerning the option.
Security Deposit – This is the mount of deposit the landlord collects upfront before the renter moves in. The security deposit is usually 1 to 2 times the amount of the monthly rent and is returned to the tenant at the end of the lease term if nothing has been broken or damaged. Take a look at your local state laws as some states put a cap on the amount of security a landlord collect.

A rental agreement is often called a lease, especially when real estate is rented. In addition to the basics of a rental (who, what, when, how much), a real estate rental may go into much more detail on these and other issues. The real estate may be rented for housing, parking a vehicle(s), storage, business, agricultural, institutional, or government use, or other reasons.

A Residential Lease Agreement should be used when leasing any kind of livable property to a tenant which may include a house, apartment, room, condo, mobile home or some other type of habitable property. It’s very important to use a lease to minimize disputes and if ever a problem results in the need for court, such as an eviction, a lease is needed in order for either party to win their case, especially the landlord.
Otherwise known as the “landlord” and “tenant”, decide who will be named in the lease. This is an important question that is asked to tenants that will be living together such as those in a romantic relationship. A general rule is if the rent can only be supported by both persons’ incomes, then it’s advised that both individuals are named as tenants.
The Tenant acknowledges that the Landlord’s property insurance does not cover the Tenant’s personal property. The Landlord accepts no liability for damage or loss to the Tenant’s personal property for any reason. The Tenant acknlowledges their responsibility to obtain appropriate Renters’ Insurance to protect the value of their personal belongings.
In the event the tenant is adding another individual to the residence (i.e. roommate, family member, etc.), the lease agreement should be consulted for requirements. Standard Residential Lease agreements have guidelines that new tenant additions be added specifically as a co-tenant. The additional tenant may be subject to criminal and financial screening, and rental history review. Furthermore, the current lease agreement may need to be reviewed to ensure the occupancy limit is not exceeded.
Section 17. The Tenant shall not make any alterations to the premises, including but not limited to installing aerials, lighting fixtures, dishwashers, washing machines, dryers or other items without first obtaining written permission from the Landlord. The Tenant shall not change or install locks, paint, or wallpaper said premises without Landlords' prior written consent, the Tenant shall not place placards, signs, or other exhibits in a window or any other place where they can be viewed by other residents or by the general public.
