Tenants Speak Out and Share Their Concerns and Opinions on the Rental Industry

As part of our “Let’s Improve the Alberta Rental Industry” we have invited landlords and tenants to share their opinions on how we can make these improvements. These opinions are from individual contributors and are not the opinions of the Alberta Landlords Association. We believe by fostering communication between landlords and tenants we can improve the Alberta rental industry. Landlords and tenants can share your thoughts and opinions by emailing us at landlordtenantsolutions@groupmail.com

The Residential Tenancy Dispute Resolution Service Really Does Protect Tenants.  Don’t Fight Your Landlord Directly If You have Any Problems With Your Rental Home Take Your Landlord To the Residential Tenancy Dispute Service

This email is to help Alberta Tenants like myself know our rights which are often covered up in Alberta.

Anyone else have lots of arguments with their landlords these days? I bet a lot of you have!

In my case let’s see some problems since I decided to pay her mortgage for her while she dreams the property will up in value next year and she will sell, lol!

There are probably good landlords around but I find the landlords here like to “bully” tenants so it’s basically impossible to work things out, as they are unreasonable and often act like psychopaths. Not everyone, but in my case it was like dealing with the Tasmanian devil you see in the Bugs Bunny cartoons!

At the Residential Dispute Tenancy Dispute Service the Landlord Can’t Bully You and Must Treat You With Respect

I had a big bully of a landlord who was so proud and looked down on me as a renter.  We had problems and she treated me with no respect. She failed to realize that my hard earned rent money was paying her mortgage each month and I was someone who wouldn’t put up with her treating me like anything but the A+++ tenant I am.

I took her to the Residential Tenancy Dispute Resolution Service and she was polite and weak…and I won! No bullying, no bullsh*t and no threats. 

Avoid Face To Face Interactions and Just Go To Landlord/Tenant Court (RTDRS)

I found landlords here like to try to intimidate tenants. So just avoid them and take all your concerns directing tot he RTDRS. This is a legal court and the landlords have to behave or they can be punished!

Tenants Make Sure You Use The Residential Tenancy Dispute Resolution Service (RTDRS)

I contacted the Residential Tenancy Dispute Resolution Service (RTDRS) directly and asked them to provide some details to us.

The Residential Tenancy Dispute Resolution Service (RTDRS) offers landlords and tenants an alternative means of resolving serious disputes outside of court.The RTDRS is designed to be faster, more informal and less expensive than the courts. The RTDRS can help tenants in four main ways:

Damages – This means the landlord will be ordered to pay the tenant for any financial losses because the landlord didn’t follow their legal obligations.

Rent Abatement – If the landlord doesn’t take their responsibilities laid out in both the lease and the Residential Tenancies Act they will be ordered to reduce the rent for the tenant.

Compensation –  If the landlord doesn’t do needed repairs to keep you safe and comfortable in your home you can apply to get money from the landlord.

Termination of the Tenancy – You file and will get to move out early

Let’s look at some of the issues me and the landlord right out of Game of Thrones had.

1. The frickin shower is moldy and the landlord is responsible to fix it

I told my landlady aka “the landlord from Hell” about this and she said it was because of my long showers and not turning on the fan. My reply is: like hey, I turn on the fan and it just isn’t strong enough because you went ‘cheap’ on buying the fan and it won’t stop mold! And what I did doesn’t even really matter because the landlord is responsible for repairing mold.

2. The people next door are noisy are smoking weed and it bothers me and the landlord is responsible to protect me and my enjoyment

I have the right to peaceful enjoyment to the property. So Ms. Moneybags tells me “her hands are tied and there’s nothing she can do.” Well you need to follow the lease and it’s not my problem!

3. This rental isn’t safe

If you don’t feel safe you can make the landlord put in locks, security cameras and more. If they don’t you can apply to the RTDRS to MAKE THE LANDORD MAKE YOUR HOME SAFE!

4. Maintenance issues galore

The drains are filled with hair or something and it’s almost impossible to even have a normal bath! I’m paying for this property and paying for your mortgage and I need to be able to have a bath!

The fridge and washer and dryer are too old You expect me to pay for power when you give me these old crappy appliances? That’s not right and if you aren’t at least going to buy new appliances you legally need to keep the old ones in good shape.

5. Landlord won’t pay back the deposit

This problem is so common. Tenants need to go to the tenant-friendly RTDRS to seek justice!

Alberta Tenants Need to Avoid Your Landlord And File At Court Where A Judge Will Stop Their Bulling and Intimidation

Don’t argue with your landlord directly, always go over their head and have an official with legal power be an impartial judge.  This way you don’t ever need to feel intimidated.

(a) Demand the Return of Your Security Deposit

So many tenants struggling to survive face evil landlords who refuse to return their security deposits. Tenants can apply at the RTDRS and get you money back.

(b) Ending the Tenancy Due to the Landlord’s Breach of the Rental Agreement

This can mean lots of things such as not maintaining the property or you have to put up with noise or eve the bathroom clogs. You are not handcuffed to a bad rental property just because you have a lease.

(c) Financial damages form the Landlord’s Rental Agreement Breach

Did you have to move when you didn’t want to because of problems with your rental property your landlord didn’t fix? Take your landlord to the RTDRS and “sue” them for all the money you had to spend to move. If the landlord doesn’t pay you then garnish their wages or put a lien on the rental property.

d) Reduction of rent for loss of benefit of a rental agreement

If you think the landlord broke the lease in any way, take them to the RTDRS and you can get a decrease in rent.

(e) Compensation for performing the landlord’s obligations as outlined in the rental agreement

If the landlord didn’t follow the lease as you see it, you can make them pay you money.

Where Can Tenants Get More Information About These Services?

Detailed information and downloadable tip sheets about using the service at their website at www.servicealberta.ca.

There Is No Need To Argue With Your Landlord Directly.  Avoid Intimidation and Harassment Taking Any Issues Directly to the RTDRS

Being a tenant can make you feel lonely and scared. Landlords can come right to your door and they even enter. By putting them in an “official court” they have to behave and follow the rules. 

It was amazing to how my super aggressive landlady turned into a soft-spoken and careful person when I took her to court.

The Residential Tenancy Dispute Resolution Service is Fair and Protects Your Rights!

Some of you might be thinking it’s complicated and time consuming.  But it’s not that bad at all. And remember you are fighting for your home and your rights as a Tenant under the Alberta Residential Tenancies Act.

Alberta Tenants have rights must you must stand up and demand them!

Who Can You Contact For More Information?

If you have further questions, please contact the RTDRS at:

Get Real World “In the Trenches” Advice From Experienced and Successful Alberta Landlords & Property Managers

Experienced and successful Alberta landlords know there are a lot of great renters out there. For years Alberta has been a place hard-working people from across Canada want to come to.

Even with the recent economic downturn people see Alberta as the ideal place to find a job, start a business, put down roots, start a family, and invest in the future.

What Makes A Great Renter?

Long time landlords know the key to being a successful Alberta landlord is finding good renters. These are people who pay their rent on time, take care of the rental property, and respect their landlord and other renters (if it’s a multi-unit rental).

An Edmonton landlord wrote about her great tenants saying:

“They are a couple who moved here from Nova Scotia and found work. They keep the property clean, pay the rent with post-dated cheques and are just wonderful people.” 

A Calgary landlord who rents his basement wrote:

“There are still good renters out there if you have an attractive place at the right price. I rent to a younger guy who is working two jobs now and also studying at night! He says his goal is to land a good job and be a landlord himself one day!”

Be Careful Because Bad Renters Are Out There Too!

A recent story on the CBC news site is about a landlord named Jennifer Leeming who owns a rental property in Calgary. 

Jennifer did all the right things. She had a bright and spacious rental property on the market and had the best intentions to be a super landlord and rent out her beautiful rental property. It sounds so simple, right? A caring landlord with a wonderful rental property just waiting for good renters. It should be so simple…but it isn’t!

Dedicated, caring single mom landlord tried to help her renters out, and in return they destroyed her rental property

Tenants From Hell

Jennifer ended up with “Tenants from Hell” who played the system and ended up costing her huge financial losses.When the renters asked for a break this landlord tried to accommodate them and work something out. This was a big mistake as it only led to more damages to the rental unit, more non-paid rent, and bigger problems.

The new flooring was treated like an ashtray.  The renters didn’t even have the common courtesy to buy an ashtray at the dollar or go outside to smoke.

Alberta landlords rental vault 3

There were many holes in the drywall all over the property. And the stair railings were ripped out making it dangerous to go up and down the stairs.

Alberta landlords rental vault 4

The nicely renovated bathrooms were destroyed.

These “Tenant From Hell” caused tens of thousands of dollars in damages!

Just Follow the System, Right?

Wrong.  Look what happened.

When Jennifer started the eviction process the renters challenged her and said: “I’M NOT MOVING UNTIL YOU PROVIDE A COURT DOCUMENT! “ Unfortunately this type of rude and aggressive behaviour is common with bad tenants who are going to rip you off.

Tenants Finally Left…Then Vanished Without Paying a Cent

And when Jennifer used the RTDRS and got them out what happened? She got paid by the tenants for the amount the RTDRS ordered right? Unfortunately, it didn’t work out that way.

After she served the tenants, they did a midnight run and took off to Saskatchewan. They did all the damages and it will be basically impossible to ever to recover her losses from these “Tenants From Hell”.

Dealing With Alberta Tenant Challenges

When you rent to tenants you need to be aware of the system and the rules. The old saying “Knowledge is Power” really applies to being a landlord in Alberta these days.

And as Jennifer found out, just going through the system often isn’t enough and leads to huge headaches, drawn out evictions, and even bigger financial losses. 

According to landlord Jennifer:

“I feel it’s so unfair. I’ve worked my entire life to provide for my family and my child’s future and people have come along and taken that all away and that’s just so wrong”

Alberta Landlords and Tenants Working Together For Success

Alberta landlords Alberta Tenants Win Win Campaign

Alberta Landlords are Looking for Good Tenants. Alberta Tenants are Looking for Good Landlords and Nice Properties. Let’s Work Together and Communicate To Make a “Win Win” Situation for Everyone!

We keep reading about complicated and dramatic landlord and tenant issues in Alberta. But being a landlord or a tenant really should be simple shouldn’t it?

Let’s look at it this way. Someone invests in a product. They want to attract good clients so they make sure the product is high quality. On the other hand, there are clients out there looking for a high quality product. When they meet if they both have what the other wants, the transaction is made and both sides are happy.

This is the way it should be for Alberta rental properties. Landlords invest in a nice rental property and advertise it. Tenants are looking for a good rental, see it, and both sides meet. If both sides see what they want the landlord offers the rental unit to the tenant and they sign the lease. It sounds so simple right?

Unfortunately while it sounds simple, in reality it’s not always like that. The Alberta Residential Tenancy Dispute Resolution Service is busy and that is because there are landlords and tenants who are in conflict, fighting each other. We also see lots of bad stories in the news about problems between landlords and tenants.

In some cases it’s good tenants who are having problems with their landlord. We have had politicians accusing landlords of gouging good tenants when the vacancy rates were low and the economy was strong.

In many other cases it’s a good landlord getting ripped off and hurt by bad tenants. For example, this Calgary landlord is out tens of thousands of dollars because the system failed her when manipulated by tenants who were unethical and out to do no good.

Alberta Has A Lot of Good Landlords

Alberta has a lot of hard working people who want to invest in rental properties here. These are people who likely rented themselves at one point and want to invest in nice properties that they themselves would have wanted to live in. Landlords are people who are investing their hard earned money back into the province because they believe in a bright future here. Alberta landlords are important stake holders and play an important role in the success of our province.

Landlords and Tenants Need To Communicate With Each Other

Many of our landlords members think the best way landlords and tenants can create a “win win” situation is for us to communicate with each other.  Not at “hearings” or in the “media”, but with some frank and friendly talk between landlords and tenants.  Let’s get to know each other better and learn what both sides are looking for these days.

We know you are our future “customers” and we want to make sure we are the “best landlords” we can be and we have the “best rental rental properties we can have”. We want to be the best Alberta landlords you have ever had! Let’s work together to make this happen!

What Do Good Alberta Tenants Want? Let Us Know

Good Alberta landlords are always looking for good paying tenants. So we want to hear from all the tenants out there. We are asking you to “help us, so we can help you.”

1. What types of things are most important for you when choosing a rental?

2. Is there anything about a rental that would be a big turn off?

3. Is there anything particular that would lead you to choose a rental over another?

4. What are the ways you find potential places to rent?

5. How important is it for the rental ad to have pictures?

6. Is there anything particular that makes a rental ad stand out to you?

7. What are you looking for in a person who will be your potential landlord?

8. Is important for you to rent from an experienced landlord?

9. What types of questions do you have for landlords to show they are professional?

10. Is there anything you would do to improve the Alberta rental industry?

Tenants can write in to us at tenantexperiences@groupmail.com and let us know your answers to these questions or about anything else to improve the Alberta rental industry. We won’t edit or censor anything and are looking for your side of things.

Alberta Landlords and Tenants Working Together For Success

Both landlords and tenants play an important role in the success of our province. Let’s work together to make things better and improve the Alberta rental industry for years to come.

Most Tenants Leaving Condemned Huntington Hills Find New Apartments

Saturday, December 24th, 2011

December 24th, 2011

What’s this story about?

Huntington Hills was said to be “unfit” for habitation after the owner failed to comply with a couple of Alberta court orders to fix safety and health concerns.

The owners had two years of warnings after Alberta Health Services informed them there were serious health concerns with the building.  One of the main concerns was asbestos.

What happened to the tenants?

This left many tenants living in Huntington Hills to scramble to find new places to live, even a day before they were to be evicted.

Many of the ninety tenants scrambling to find new housing were newcomers to Canada and seniors with low incomes.

Fortunately, before the deadline only three had found a new rental.

How did these tenants handle it?

Two tenants involved feel they are happy to home for the Christmas break.  They are Melissa and Andrew Rayburn.  Just days before being forced to move they and their two daughters managed to find a new rental within blocks of their Huntsville building.

According to Melissa: “It’s been really stressful but I guess I’m glad that we left because I don’t want to live in a place that could make my kids sick.” Melissa is six months pregnant and said  “I’m really glad we’re out of there. We don’t need the hassle.”

Why didn’t the government work closely with the Huntington Hills owners to solve this before it came to this point?

That is something only the owners and the government know.

Uh Oh! The Sheriff Is A Comin’!

What Can you Do If your Tenants Refuse to Leave?

It sounds a little “wild, wild, west, doesn’t it?  Your problem tenants are finally going to leave…because the Landlord and Tenant Board directed them to do so. What do you do if they are directed to move out, and don’t?   Cue the music, kick the tumbleweed. It’s time for the Sheriff. (more…)
