My landlord has served me with a claim for loss of rent (I left a fixed term tenancy before the term was finished) and for the cost of damage to the property. The papers say it is a Civil Claim in provincial court. What should I do?

     If you want to defend the claim you must file the Dispute Note that was served with the claim. It must be filed with the court within 20 days of receiving the claim, or 30 days if you are outside Alberta. You can include details of any claim you are making against your landlord. This is called a Counterclaim. Once you have filed and served your papers, the court will set a hearing date.
