The Residential Tenancies Act of Alberta gives details about when your landlord can make you move out of your rented home. Your lease agreement will provide additional information about the type of lease you have. This will determine how and when you can be asked to leave.
If you decide to move out by giving notice to your landlord, you must give your notice in the way that the law and your lease require.
Remember to look for any details in your lease agreement about what the condition of the premises should be after you leave and about exactly when you must leave. Look especially for any agreement you might have made about cleaning the premises. Note: the law requires a tenant to clean and repair anything beyond "normal wear and tear".

If you are in a situation where your landlord wants to evict you for being at fault in some way, or you want to end the tenancy because you feel your landlord is at fault, you need to refer to the “Disputes” section.
