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.

The Landlord reserves the right to dispose of any personal belongings left behind by the tenant, and furthermore reserves the right to rent the Property to additional occupants, and hold the Tenant financially responsible for any difference between the monthly rent that would have been paid under this rental agreement, and the rental payment under any additional rental agreements with subsequent Property occupants.
It is recommended for landlords to elect not permitting water filled furnishings on the property due to the potential damage they may cause if they should puncture. Chances are that the amount of damage a waterbed can cause, which is usually between 196 to 235 gallons, would exceed the amount held for the security deposit. Therefore, it is in the landlords best interest to not allow this type of furniture.

Prior to moving in, the tenant and the landlord should walk through the premises and write down any existing damage. This written account is called an inspection report. The landlord and tenant should both get a copy of this report. In some jurisdictions, an inspection report is also required upon moving out, as a condition for the landlord to make a claim against the tenant's security deposit.
Only tenants and people listed as occupants may reside in the premises. The landlord must be informed and approve of any change to the list of permitted tenants. Children born or adopted while the tenant lives in the premises are automatically added to the lease as occupants. Also, each jurisdiction may restrict the number of tenants/occupants in the premises if that number violates health or safety standards for housing. Health and safety standards are typically expressed as 1 person per X sq. ft. The standard varies from jurisdiction to jurisdiction so if you are concerned, check with your local housing/public health authority.

A Standard Residential Lease is the most basic and popular type of document used when renting property to an individual, known as a tenant. It is highly customizable which is very important for landlords and property owners who wish to alter the agreement according to their needs and property type. The 3 main subjects a lease should entail is the term (length of time), the amount per month or period, and any type of deposit such as a security or pet deposit. The lease guarantees that the rights and responsibilities of both landlord and tenant be ensured, according to the state.
If you’re a tenant and want to move before the end of the lease, there are two ways you can avoid paying rent until the end of the lease.    What is the difference between subletting and assigning a lease?

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.
A rental agreement is extremely important for any landlord wanting to rent their property. Even if you are renting to a friend or family member, or just for a short time, a residential lease agreement can help save you from a lot of problems if (when) things don't work out. A rental contract should outline all your expectations for the renter, and it helps keep both the renter AND the landlord responsible and accountable for their part of the agreement.

In the first blank, insert the amount of the security deposit. Often this amount is equal to one month's rent, however the parties may choose to agree on any amount. In the second blank, insert the portion (if any) of the security deposit that will not be refundable at the end of the term. For example, the landlord might have a policy of having the carpets professionally cleaned after each tenant, and in that case the landlord might state that $200 of the security deposit will be non-refundable. Of course, the landlord has the right to utilize the entire deposit, if necessary, toward unpaid rent or the cost of repairing any damage to the premises caused by tenant, as set forth in more detail in this section of the agreement.

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.

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.

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.
