hello, i am hoping to become a new landlord and wanted to see a few examples of lease forms ( in Alberta preferably) that my tenants would have to sign ( and what format would i have to use in order to make my own). Also what would be the best way to check the background/credit score of a tenant ?
Hey George, you can probably find many examples of leases here on the website, I haven't looked in a while but I'm assuming the document section is still available for free. Look under "tools".
Hi @George Pedro I would highly recommend using one specific for Alberta to comply with Alberta Residential Tenancies Act. You can find one here :
As for background checks, you can have the applicants do it themselves from a place like Equifax and provide you a copy, and/or use TenantVerification(dot)ca
This is extremely helpful, thank you ❗️
@George Pedro in calgary the residential landlord association can provide much the same package of docs. What we don’t seem to have is a acrobat enabled version where the tenant can fill it out on a computer and sign. Instead I get it mostly filled on my computer and get them to sign and scan back the package. Not as good but at least is digitized at that stage.
Hi @George Pedro ! Were you able to get a good Alberta fixed term lease agreement? I actually am looking for one right now and would love to get a template! Let me know if you found something and where. Thanks!
Rentfaster.ca has a ton of great stuff for landlords
