Just going to throw this out there, hoping it doesn't cause someone else the headache I went through...
Disclaimer: this is some-what a dick move on my part, and not my normal practice, but work events led it this way.
Was in a lease, living in Edson, Alberta (middle of nowhere) for work. After my lease expired, my landlord agreed to let me rent month to month (as I had anticipations to transfer out of Edson), and knew it would be on rather last minute notice.
I found out on the last day of February 2016, and needed to be out of Edson by the end of March. So i called my landlord first thing in the morning on March 1.
- back and forth, she wanted me to pay for April as well, given that I had not given enough notice.
Back and forth with landlord and tenancy board, legislation is worded that a months notice is the day of the last month or any time prior.
So an FYI, you can give a months notice on the first day of the last month you plan on renting somewhere....
Like i said prior, I wouldn't recommend making this a common practice, but sometimes life throws your curve balls you gotta deal with, and would likely rather not get screwed in the process.
