Evidence collection, case preparation and hearing representation
before Alberta Residential Tenancy Dispute Resolution Service (RTDRS)
in both Calgary or Edmonton. We can represent clients in the following
cities and surrounding areas:
Problem tenants can often be persuaded to change their behaviour
or vacate the premises prior the situation escalating to the point
where clients need to seek legal remedy through the courts. We provide
hourly consultation and support services, including:
Coaching and tactical advice;
Dispute intervention and negotiation;
Property inspections (for evidence collection);
Legal notices (e.g. Letters of Demand
for Payment, Letters addressing interference, etc.).
Notices of Default and Civil Enforcement Coordination
Notices of Default are prepared and served in accordance with
court Orders (referred to as Conditional Orders/Cinderella Orders)
on Tenants, upon default on payment and failure to vacate. Service
of a Notice of Default is usually possible within 4 to 12 hours.
Where Tenants fail to abide the Notice of Default and fail to vacate
on own accord, Affidavits of Service and required documents are
prepared that give Civil Enforcement Agencies authority to enter
and take possession of premises or lands and, if necessary, to remove
the Tenants. The process from the time of instructing the preparation
of the documents and the Bailiff to removing the tenant takes approximately
1-and-half to 2 days and is coordinated by AES at no additional
Damage Claims allow Landlords to seek compensation for rental
arrears, breach of rental terms and/or the cost of repair to damaged
property. AES constructs with its clients feasible, credible and
legitimate Damage Claims to secure strong court Orders for the purpose
of immediate or future enforcement. The procedure follows the same
order as described under RTDRS
Process and Timeframes, with possible extension of the timeframes
due to the complexity of a claim and evidence.
Once court Orders are obtained, Writs of Enforcement and Garnishee
Summons are prepared which initiates the collection process whereby
funds that are owed by the Tenant (Debtor) are diverted to the Landlord
(Creditor) through a third party (i.e., employer) in trust of the
courts. AES garnishees only employment earnings, not bank accounts.
Document service on parties on behalf of Landlords and law firms
can be executed within 4 to 12 hours. AES has servers and affiliates
throughout the province of Alberta.
Webinars, In-House Training, Public Speaking
Webinars and other training mechanisms provide a forum for sharing
and exchanging gained knowledge and experience pertaining to Alberta
residential tenancies. Real estate owners and operators are updated
about changes in legislation, new case precedent, current trends
in tendencies of Tenants, and focus on the areas of tenancy management
that are typically neglected. The power found in knowledge translates
into minimized risk, disputes and revenue loss.
Associated Eviction Services (AES) offers
paralegal services to local and remote Alberta real estate investors,
property managers, real estate agents representing investors and
building managers. We specialize in residential tenancy dispute
matters within Alberta jurisdiction.
