Vacating Prior to end of Lease

The Tenant must provide a complete and signed Landlord’s Vacating Notice Form to terminate their fixed term lease prior to the leases end date. There will be a contract breaking fee that equals one month’s rent if the Tenant ends the tenancy prior to the end of the tenancy agreement.

If the Tenant needs to terminate their fixed term lease prior to the end of the tenancy agreement, due to one of the following conditions, the contract breaking fee will be waived, provided the Tenant supplies proper documentation along with the Landlord’s Vacating Notice Form:

  • Medical reasons, where the Tenant has provided a medical certificate from their family physician, medical specialist or psychiatrist stating the reasons as to why the Tenant ought not to continue residing in the Premises;
  • Proof of termination of employment with UCalgary

The Tenant must provide a complete and signed Landlord’s Vacating Notice Form, on or before the last day of a calendar month to be effective on the last day of the next calendar month.

Vacating at end of Lease

Tenants will receive a notice from Housing Services the month beginning of the month that the tenants lease ends. The tenant will be able to renew the lease or vacate at the end of their lease. All information will be stated in the email from Housing Services.

Moving Out

Family housing move-out is at the end of each month year round. Proper vacating notice and final inspection are required. Due to Covid, final inspections will be complete after the tenant has moved out of their unit. Tenants will be required to drop of their keys and parking passes into the key drop box, located outside of the 400 lounge.
