Tenant Policies

For your convenience and reference, we have listed some of our policies for our tenants. Please remember that you are required to adhere to these policies at all times.

As this is not a complete comprehensive list of our policies and regulations, please consult the Residential Tenancy Agreement that you signed when you first moved in. If you have any questions or concerns, don't hesitate to contact us.



Utilities and Services

  1. The tenant agrees to move utilities and services over into their name immediately and retroactively to the commencement date of this agreement and agrees not to disconnect any of the utilities until the last day of the agreement.

  2. The tenant agrees to provide Alberta Property Management Solutions Inc. with account numbers within 2 business days of signing the lease. Failure to do so will result in administration fees of a minimum of $50.00/day for each day.

  3. If the use of the provided utilities and services exceed a 20% increase over historical averages for the unit, the tenant accepts responsibility for the additional costs to the owner or accepts an increase in the rent to allow the Landlord to recover these costs, plus back charges to the beginning of their lease, for the remainder of their lease.
