5 Tips to sell tenant occupied properties ways to make money in alberta

I’m well known around my office for knowing quite a what are some ways to make money bit about landlording and the laws that govern tenancies in what are some ways to make money alberta, or at least knowing where to go to find answers. It’s not surprising that I get a lot more questions what are some ways to make money when it’s spring and leases are up for students or people what are some ways to make money want to sell. I’ve had the same basic question twice this week so what are some ways to make money I thought it’s blog post time. (thanks to bill, doug, oliver and christian for the push to actually get typing.)

The essential question is two-fold. First, can I get rid of the tenant so I have what are some ways to make money a vacant property to market and sell? Second, if I’m selling with a tenant in place, how do I get in and how can I get what are some ways to make money vacant possession for the buyers? There’s a lot of realtors out there who don’t understand the law in enough detail to help you what are some ways to make money decide if you can/should accept an offer that required vacant possession. Imagine you accept an offer that asks for 30 day what are some ways to make money possession and your tenant refuses. Your sale could collapse and you may end up with what are some ways to make money a lawsuit on your hands. These tips may help and I’m always happy to help you sell your rental property. Access to your rental property

An agent called my yesterday who has a property where what are some ways to make money the tenant is refusing to let the realtors in for what are some ways to make money a quick look around. Here’s the first big rule which helps owners and realtors: tenants can’t refuse access. The only exception is on a day of religious worship what are some ways to make money if the tenants have informed the owner in writing in what are some ways to make money advance. I’ll quote from service alberta’s website:

My advice to the owner or agent. Post a notice, leave voice mails, text messages, or whatever, and then just go. I’m presuming you have keys, but just go. If nothing else the tenant who refuses access usually has what are some ways to make money committed a substantial breach such as having 5 roommates, having trashed the place or is otherwise contravening the lease. Notice to vacate (fixed-term leases vs month to month)

If your tenant is on a fixed term lease you’ve got a double edged sword. First, you can’t break a fixed term lease, no matter what the purchase agreement or the lease says. You’ve got to wait until the lease expires however you’re not obligated to renew the lease or go to what are some ways to make money month to month. Your only other legal option here is eviction for substantial what are some ways to make money breach. There’s one more option I’ll talk about at the end.

The smart reader who actually went down the list of what are some ways to make money reasons to terminate above will be asking if we can what are some ways to make money use family or renos as a reason. Yes, but you actually have to take the action required. The notice periods aren’t fun either. For condo conversion or substantial renos, you need a full year notice. For family or owner occupation you can get away with what are some ways to make money “just” 90 days. **note that if you’re buying it for a rental you can’t use these reasons to terminate the old tenants’ lease and put your own tenant in. I’m not saying it doesn’t happen but if a well informed tenant wants to what are some ways to make money they can force you to rent to them.

Third, give advance notice for showing windows. Imagine that instead of giving 24 hour notice and setting what are some ways to make money up a showing every time you get a request, you give the tenants a letter on monday morning with what are some ways to make money notice for tuesday, thursday and saturday afternoon between 2-6pm. That fulfils your legal requirement for notice, and then you follow up with a phone call or what are some ways to make money text for actually scheduled showings. I prefer to work out a good time with tenants what are some ways to make money ahead of time and keep everyone happy. Paper letters like this help keep tenants happy and cooperative what are some ways to make money because then they really see that you’re working hard to fulfil the legal obligations you’re all working under.

Hi, we have rented our house to a ‘friend’ that has been residing in it for the past 6 what are some ways to make money months or so. Being that she was my friend we never signed a what are some ways to make money lease agreement-the idea was it would be month to month, she never paid a damage deposit, she is paying less than the amount of our mortgage what are some ways to make money by $300 and we pay the town bill and the power what are some ways to make money bill. (I know, I know, I’m an idiot!) I thought I was doing her a favor as she what are some ways to make money is a single mom and as I said, we are/were friends. We are renting a house in the town we live what are some ways to make money in now and the lease will be up in 5 what are some ways to make money months so we want to list our house, that is currently being rented to my friend, so it will be sold by the time our lease what are some ways to make money is up. We need to sell our house in order to be what are some ways to make money approved for a mortgage and get on with our lives. We told her that we planned to list the house what are some ways to make money in the next few months and she flipped out and what are some ways to make money said she couldn’t believe I was doing this to her, etc. Etc. My question is, do we need to give 3 months notice before we what are some ways to make money list the house, or 3 months notice to vacate? Thanks in advance.

Just an FYI I am a renter, and also was property owner multiple times and landlord with what are some ways to make money many years experience in property management. Many things you say may be setting up agents for what are some ways to make money failure especially with your comment about leaving multiple dates for what are some ways to make money the notice to enter. I am not insinuating this is a lack of knowledge what are some ways to make money on your part by any means, but you could say, “clear as mud” and there will always be someone who takes it literally what are some ways to make money thinking there is clear mud. Ex. Delivering a notice for entry on the dates monday, wednesday & thursday… legally a notice to enter can only be for one what are some ways to make money day only. You can service all notices on the same day but… legally there must be three separate notices. Also, a 24 hour notice to enter cannot be for a what are some ways to make money date any longer than 30 days in the future. I know this may be tedious and a waste of what are some ways to make money time to make three pieces of paper, BUT in the end, it could save you from any legal proceedings from a what are some ways to make money pissed of tenant looking for any reason to get back what are some ways to make money at the landlord. Also, you stated that leaving a notice gives them (tenant) no option but to allow you(landlords agent) to enter. This is also not true, the tenant has the right to enjoy their premises and what are some ways to make money also has the right to privacy and if continuous showings what are some ways to make money are getting in the way of the tenants right to what are some ways to make money enjoy the premises then the landlord/agent is actually at risk of breaching the agreement. One more thing to remember about notice to enter, you stated the hours and days permitted to enter which what are some ways to make money were mostly right but you missed one day. A landlord or agent may enter from monday-saturday during the times 8AM-8PM. The time of entry must be stated on the notice what are some ways to make money with a REASONABLE duration of time. There is no entry allowed unless permission is granted on what are some ways to make money sundays ( or any other day of worship) and holidays!!!! Also on that note, a tenant cannot get in the way of the landlords what are some ways to make money rights either. And its the landlords right to sell the premises or what are some ways to make money re-rent it. They also have to keep the premises in a cleanly what are some ways to make money state, but that can differ from a landlord trying to sell what are some ways to make money their premises and the tenant who may be a single what are some ways to make money mom of 2 kids working 2 jobs. Also, I see this one often…. Animals MUST be contained or confined to a space where what are some ways to make money they are out of the way during any entry by what are some ways to make money landlord or agent. YES even if you are against kenneling your dog, you may have to if that is the only way what are some ways to make money to confine the animal when you are not home. OR be home during the showing to ensure the animal what are some ways to make money is not a risk to anyone entering the premises. I have had both shitty landlords and shitty renters… working in property management about 80% of cases that went to court were due to a what are some ways to make money real estate agent or an agent of the landlord of what are some ways to make money some sort not following the RTA or PIPA. Which, I believe is due to the fact that its a what are some ways to make money whole different set of rules and regulations for real estate what are some ways to make money agents. I have had experiences of all types and recently more what are some ways to make money with the “shitty type” most recently my landlord has put their house for sale what are some ways to make money and the real estate agent put “IMMEDIATE POSSESSION” in the ad as well as various pictures containing personal what are some ways to make money information of mine in the back round, which I did not give consent to and never would. Well, having immediate possession on the ad has now confirmed the what are some ways to make money landlord harassment case of trying to force me (tenant) out by two illegal notices to terminate the tenancy, followed by a notice of raising the rent by over what are some ways to make money $600 when they realized the termination was invalid, claiming to not receive rent e-transfer, only to accept the transfer the day after an invalid what are some ways to make money eviction notice was posted.

I think the moral is for everyone to respect everyone’s rights. Communication is key. If my landlords came to me and wanted to sell what are some ways to make money the house vacant and tried to talk with me offering what are some ways to make money me an incentive I would’ve been more than happy to comply. The sad thing is if I didn’t have the experience or education I do, I may have thought my landlord was in the right.

For all of the people on here that are saying what are some ways to make money negative things about tenants …. There are just as many SLUM lords as there are what are some ways to make money shitty tenants. I truly believe that before anyone is allowed to be what are some ways to make money a landlord they are to take the residential tenancies in what are some ways to make money alberta course (or whatever province they are in) I also believe this should be addressed in highschool.
