With oil prices dropping significantly and Target closing its doors, thousands of Albertans have lost their jobs. Many thousands more are worried everyday that they could lose their job.
The Centre for Public Legal Education (CPLEA) has created a new tip sheet for Alberta tenants who are having trouble keeping up with their rent due to the economic downturn. If your Employment Ends… Laws for Tenants in Alberta, explains what options tenants have if they want to move out early.
For Albertans who own their homes and are thinking of finding a tenant to supplement their income, CPLEA’s free booklet Renting out a Room in your Home provides key information on the laws surrounding such living arrangements.
You can find more information from CPLEA about renting in Alberta at www.landlordandtenant.org/resources.
CPLEA’s Laws for Landlords and Tenants in Alberta program is generously supported by the Alberta Real Estate Foundation.
