The landlord can apply for an order to terminate the tenancy and get back possession of the property. They can do this through the Residential Tenancy Dispute Resolution Service or Alberta Court of Justice Civil .When the landlord applies for this order, the tenant will be served with new documents from the landlord. See our Who Can Help page for a list of service providers that can provide further information to landlords and tenants about this process.
If the tenant does not move after being served the order, the landlord may hire a civil enforcement agency to evict the tenant. A civil enforcement agency bailiff can then come to the property, remove the tenant and any of the tenant’s belongings. Only the bailiff has the power to physically remove the tenant and the tenant’s belongings. The landlord cannot remove the tenant themselves.
