Applications open for provincial residential tenancy disputes

By Medicine Hat News on November 25, 2020.

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.

The online survey is at: https://www.alberta.ca/mobile-home-site-issues engagement.aspx
