The Alberta Residential Tenancy Dispute Resolution Service is now accepting applications from residents and landlords of mobile-home communities for tenancy-related disputes, including return of security deposits and disputes over damages.
Legislation passed in May has made this possible.
Residents and landlords of mobile-home communities can also participate in an online survey until Dec. 13 about other issues and concerns.
RTDRS is a faster, less expensive way to help resolve tenancy disputes for Albertans renting residential properties and mobile-home sites. The RTDRS application fee is $75, while provincial court fees can range from $100 to $200.
It was launched in 2006 and now receives more than 11,000 applications annually. Currently, urgent applications related to eviction and ending tenancies are being heard within 10-15 business days. Applications regarding security deposits and damages are heard in about 30-45 business days.
