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.
20.1 The fact that we do not insist on the full implementation of any of your obligations hereunder or that we do not exercise any of the rights that the presents gives us, should not be construed as a waiver for future to request your that you comply with your obligations. Neglect or delay in exercising any right or remedy under this Agreement shall in no way be construed as a waiver by us of that right or remedy.

If a "Fixed" term is selected, the leasing relationship may still continue after expiry if both the landlord and the tenant wish it to. In some jurisdictions, statute dictates that it will become a Periodic term lease, usually of the month-to-month variety, though this may vary. In other jurisdictions, the Fixed term lease may become a "tenancy at will" or a "tenancy at sufferance" when it expires, which lasts only as long as both parties wish it to, and is not subject to as much legal protection as a Periodic lease. If you wish to terminate all rights under a Fixed term lease as soon as the lease expires, you must serve proper notice before the end of the lease term, in accordance with local statute.


Who: The parties involved in the contract, the lessor (sometimes called the owner or landlord) and the lessee (sometimes called the renter or tenant) are identified in the contract. A housing lease may specify whether the renter is living alone, with family, children, roommate, visitors. A rental may delineate the rights and obligations of each of these. For example, a "sub-let" to a stranger might not be permitted without permission of the landlord. This also applies to whether or not pets may be kept by the renter. On the other hand, the renter may also have specific rights against intrusions by the landlord (or other tenants), except under emergency circumstances. A renter is in possession of the property, and a landlord would be trespassing upon the renter's rights if entry is made without proper notice and authority (e.g., 24 hours' notice, daytime, knock first, except for emergency repairs, in case of fire, flood, etc.).

Various things can affect the state of an apartment: a sagging ceiling, toxic mold or no running water. Depending on how serious the situation is, you can cancel the lease, leave the apartment during repairs or simply refuse to move in.   By law, when is an apartment unit unfit to live in? The law considers that a rental unit is unfit to live in when there is a serious risk to the health or...

A rental agreement can be written, verbal or implied. Since the rental agreement is the most important part of a landlord and tenant relationship, it should be in writing. The advantage of a written agreement is that it outlines the terms and conditions agreed to by both parties. Once the landlord and tenant agree to the terms and conditions of their contract, it cannot be changed unless both parties agree.
The chances of a landlord pursuing the matter often depends on the size of the property management company. A landlord with one duplex and a day job might not want to endure the hassle and costs of a day off work as well as the lawyer/paralegal fees. On the other hand, if you have a professional landlord who owns and manages thousands of units, Aaron says they’ve likely got someone dedicated to going after tenants five days a week. “Yours is just another file in their caseload.”
Starting April 30, 2018, Ontario landlords leasing private residential rental units must use a new standard form of lease (the "New Form"). If you are a landlord, or a property management company, you should be aware that the New Form may affect how you do business. The New Form sets out the essential terms of a lease and outlines both your and your tenant's rights and responsibilities.
RentQuebecApartments.com may share information with companies who work on our behalf to provide certain services, such as email processing and delivery and conducting research and analysis. Except as otherwise provided by applicable legislation, these companies are prohibited from using this information for any other purpose or from sharing this information with other companies.
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 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.
Landlord acknowledges that Tenant has a right to allow guests at the Property from time to time. Thus, Tenant may allow guests into the Property for up to fourteen (14) consecutive days without requiring written consent from the Landlord. Guests residing at the Property for longer than fourteen (14) days may only do so with prior written consent from the Landlord. 

Tenants will be respectful of the neighbors and community where the Property is located and not create nuisances or excessive noise, nor will any illegal conduct be carried out on the premises.  Commission of criminal conduct on the Property will be grounds for immediate termination of this Residential Lease Agreement and an obligation for Tenant to immediately vacate the Property.

When the tenant has broken the lease conditions and vacated prior to the expiry of the lease term, the landlord may charge a "rerent levy" to recover their lost rental income and costs associated with finding a new tenant. It is usually only charged when the term of the lease is six months or more, and some jurisdictions do not permit the landlord to charge a rerent levy. The amount charged must be reasonable given the circumstances, and must not exceed the damages that the landlord suffers from the tenant leaving early.

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.

A weekly/monthly/yearly lease with automatic renewal (a periodic tenancy) will continue so long as neither party wishes to terminate the lease. To terminate the lease the landlord and tenant must give notice of their intention to leave as specified by statute. A landlord can raise the rent, or change the terms of the lease in these types of agreements by providing proper notice as required by statute. At the end of the notice period the tenant must move out or the landlord can start eviction proceedings against them.

These customs duties and these possible taxes are at your expense and your responsibility. MCW cannot verify or inform you about customs duties and applicable taxes. MCW advises you to inquire with the proper authorities of your country.
It is acknowledged that the Landlord is not liable for these occurrences. It is acknowledged that the Tenants’ insurance policy shall solely indemnify the Tenant for any losses sustained. Tenants’ failure to maintain said policy shall be a complete waiver of the Tenants’ right to seek damages against the Landlord for the above stated losses. The parties acknowledge that the premises are not to be considered a security building which would hold the Landlord to a higher degree of care.

Typically, renting a room or a basement suite means you are sharing an accommodation with the landlord. A basement suite is a self-contained dwelling unit complete with its own kitchen, bathroom, and living area. Most tenants of a basement suite use a separate entrance to enter the house than the rest of the occupants. If you rent a room, you will likely share either the kitchen or bathroom with the landlord or other tenants.


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.
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.
Landlord agrees to rent the property located at [Property.Street] [Property.City], [Property.State] [Property.Zip] (the “Property”) to the Tenant for use as a residential accommodation. Tenant agrees to use the Property solely as a single-family place of residence for themselves, their dependents, and additional occupants approved by the Landlord. Furthermore, Tenant agrees not to use the Property as a place of business or commercial operation.
To make sure that you're well protected under the law, make sure that the landlord uses a standard lease agreement for the province you live in, and negotiate any other items you feel should be included. If, for example, the landlord agreed during your visit of the apartment that the windows needed to be changed, this should be reflected in the lease, with a mention of when the repairs will be made.

The "Act" refers to the legislation governing residential tenancy agreements in your jurisdiction. After you select the Location of Property when you are filling out the Lease Agreement Details, you will see a link beneath your selection to the governing legislation for the jurisdiction you have selected. It is not necessary to specifically state the name of the "Act" in your contract, as the relevant legislation is satisfactorily identified by the "severability clause" of your lease.

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.
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.
The landlord can deduct from the security deposit when the tenancy ends and the tenant owes the landlord money for either unpaid rent or damage to the premises. The landlord generally cannot deduct for reasonable "wear and tear" on the premises, (i.e. wear and tear that occurs just from living in the premises). The landlord can deduct for stains on the carpet or countertops, large holes in the wall, and missing appliances and other such things that are beyond reasonable wear and tear.
From the Landlord's perspective, there doesn't appear to be many disadvantages to this type of lease other than the Landlord will not receive an immediate cash sale on the property. Also, if the real estate market is rising, the Landlord could possibly lose out on the appreciated value of their property if they have specified a specific purchase price of the property. Consequently, it may be safer for the Landlord to make the purchase price equal to the market value of the property at the time the option is exercised.
A body corporate is the group of all the owners of lots or units which share common property. The body corporate bylaws refer to the set of rules governing the internal management of those lots. The bylaws may specify rules relating to noise, parking, behaviour of guests, pets, garbage disposal and the use of common property. The bylaws are sometimes referred to as a Community Management Statement or Condominium Bylaws.
