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.
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.
The time use of a chattel or other so called "personal property" is covered under general contract law, but the term lease also nowadays extends to long term rental contracts of more expensive non-Real properties such as automobiles, boats, planes, office equipment and so forth. The distinction in that case is long term versus short term rentals. Some non-real properties commonly available for rent or lease are:
This lease agreement template provides for a one year term, which is the most common, however the term can be longer or shorter as agreed upon by the parties. In the first blank, insert the date on which the rental term will begin. This is the date on which the tenant can take possession and begin to occupy the premises, and the date on which rent will commence. Ideally, the term will begin on the first day of a calendar month (this approach makes the accounting and record keeping easier), but it doesn't need to. In the second blank, insert the date on which the rental term will expire. For a one year term, this will be the day before the anniversary of the start date, for example: beginning on February 1, 2017, and ending on January 31, 2018.
A: In the event the Tenant defaults by failing to pay rent, the Landlord may give written notice to the Tenant to terminate the agreement. The Landlord must give the Tenant adequate warning in writing a certain number of days number of days before terminating the agreement. The notice period can vary by state so we recommend you check your local laws. Read these guidelines if you aren’t sure what to do when a Tenant is late paying the rent.
In addition to sections that must be completed setting out the relevant lease terms, the Standard Lease contains an appendix containing general information (the “General Information Appendix”) for landlords and renters on rights, responsibilities and unenforceable tenancy conditions. Items that are summarized in the General Information Appendix include, among others, material relating to illegal charges, pets, smoking, and rules governing the ending of a tenancy and evictions.
A: In the event the Tenant defaults by any reason other than failing to pay rent (i.e. having a pet if not permitted or breaking any other rule specified in the Agreement), the Landlord may give written notice to the Tenant to terminate the agreement. Specify the number of days’ written notice the Landlord will give to the Tenant before terminating the agreement. The notice period can vary by state so we recommend you check your local laws.

A landlord who has issued a 10 Day Notice to End Tenancy for Unpaid Rent or Utilities RTB-30 (PDF) may use the Direct Request process to apply for an Order of Possession and a Monetary Order for Unpaid Rent or Utilities when the tenant has neither paid the amount owing nor applied to the Residential Tenancy Branch to cancel the notice within 5 days of receiving it.

Next, look for a mention about deposits. Sometimes they're called damage or security deposits. This money should be held in trust by the landlord until you move out, unless there is rent that has been left unpaid or furniture has been damaged. If there's no mention of a deposit but the landlord has asked you for one, first check that deposits are allowed in your province, and then ask to have it included in the lease before you hand any money over.

While technically considered an occupant, pets are not a landlord’s best friend. Even if they are allowed on the property, the landlord should state exactly which types are allowed so that an “organic” tenant doesn’t have farm animals on the premises. Furthermore, it’s recommended that the landlord place a maximum weight the animal may be for liability (dangerous dogs tend to be larger) and damage to the premises.
Alberta doesn’t have standard leases or residential tenancy agreement forms.

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.

There will certainly be a requirement to show a driver's license, and only those drivers appearing on the contract may be authorized to drive. It may include an option to purchase auto insurance (motor insurance, UK), if the renter does not already have a policy to cover rentals—another important consideration for multiple drivers. Some agencies may even require a bond payable if the car is not returned in order, often held in the form of a credit-card authorization—voided if the car is returned per agreement. A renter should be advised that he or she will be responsible for any parking or traffic violations incurred upon the vehicle during the rental period. There should also be advice on handling thefts, accidents, break-downs, and towing.
The Standard Lease applies to most residential tenancies in Ontario, including leases of condominiums, single-family homes and units in apartment buildings. The Standard Lease does not apply to commercial properties, residential sub-tenancies, as well as tenancies involving student residences, retirement homes, land lease communities and other property types that are exempt from the RTA. However, the Ontario government announced that it is also working on standard form leases for some of the foregoing exempt classes of residential tenancies. There is no estimated publication date for these additional standard lease forms.
