Owners Can Also Evict Tenants

The owner of the condominium unit also has the power to evict if the tenant has committed a substantial breach under the Residential Tenancies Act. More information about evictions can be found by visiting Laws for Landlords and Tenants in Alberta: Eviction Notices.

If you are planning to rent your condominium unit, the lease should clearly state whether or not the tenant is responsible for paying the condominium contributions. Keep in mind that serious consequences can result if the condominium contributions are not paid.

If you are renting your unit and condominium contributions go unpaid, the condominium corporation can require the tenant to pay the rent to the corporation instead of you to cover the unpaid contributions. If you are at fault for not paying the contributions, you cannot take any actions against the tenant.
