    1. Lease Agreements: Tenants have the right to a written lease agreement outlining the terms and conditions of the tenancy, including rent amount, payment schedule, and rules set by the landlord. APOLLO Insurance provides coverage tailored to renters' needs, ensuring they are protected throughout the lease term.

    2. Rent Increases: The Alberta Residential Tenancies Act governs rent increases. Landlords must provide tenants with written notice at least three months before raising the rent. APOLLO Insurance offers coverage to protect against unexpected financial burdens, providing peace of mind for renters.

    3. Repairs and Maintenance: Landlords are responsible for maintaining a safe and habitable living space. Tenants have the right to prompt repairs for essential services and must report any issues to the landlord. APOLLO Insurance offers additional coverage for personal belongings in case of damage due to landlord negligence.

    4. Privacy Rights: Tenants have the right to privacy in their rented space. Landlords must provide reasonable notice before entering the property for non-emergency reasons. APOLLO Insurance protects tenants' privacy and belongings, offering added reassurance.

    5. Eviction Laws: Alberta landlords can only evict tenants for specific reasons outlined in the Residential Tenancies Act. Understanding the legal eviction process is crucial for both parties. APOLLO Insurance offers tenant insurance to safeguard against unforeseen circumstances during eviction or displacement.
