So I'm currently looking for places to rent and the ads are asking for 1 year leases, 6 months etc.

Can someone school me on what I need to know about a lease? Is it basically a contract where I have to live there for the required time?

thats exactly what it is, so you can't decide you don't like it in two months and move out.

That's what i figured. So lets say that scenario does happen. Will I be "required" to pay a fee? Or will it depend on the landlord?

You can get out of a lease early, but there are rules and there may be additional costs.
Quote:
Fixed-Term Tenancies

If a fixed-term tenancy agreement (or a lease) has a move-out clause that requires the tenant to move out at the end of the term, the tenant can move at the end of the term without giving the landlord notice.

When a fixed-term agreement doesn’t require the tenant to move out at the end of the term, the tenant must serve written notice to end the tenancy so that it’s received:

At least one month before the effective date of the notice, and
Before the day that rent is due
The effective date of the notice cannot be earlier than the end of the fixed term.

A fixed-term tenancy agreement that doesn’t require the tenant to move out at the end of the term will continue as a month-to-month tenancy under the same tenancy agreement if the tenant doesn’t give notice to end the tenancy.

Leaving Before the End of a Fixed Term

Written agreement is required to end a fixed-term tenancy early – both parties need to sign the document and keep a copy.

Mutual Agreement to End Tenancy (PDF, 1.6MB)
If a tenant ends a fixed-term tenancy early without the landlord’s permission, the tenant may have to reimburse the landlord for costs of re-renting the unit – like advertising or lost rent. The landlord must do their best to limit these costs by trying to rent the unit as soon as possible. Sometimes a fixed-tenancy agreement includes a “liquidated damages” term that requires the tenant to pay to end the tenancy early.

Policy Guideline – Liquidated Damages (PDF)
A tenant may ask the landlord for written permission to sublet or assign the tenancy agreement to someone else.

expect to sign this lease. It's a template from the government.
http://www2.gov.bc.ca/assets/gov/hou...forms/rtb1.pdf

source: Forms - Province of British Columbia

you don't have to physically live there for the required time, but you are responsible for paying them rent for the required time.

Today Houston is experiencing "unprecedented" weather in many parts of the city. Flooding is...well...everywhere



LIVE WEATHER BLOG: Flash Flood Warning extended | khou.com

I live within walking distance of NASA's Johnson Space Centre ("Houston" in "Houston, we have a problem") and aside from some wet socks, we're doing ok down here. (Down here meaning I'm living in the South-East part of the city. If Houston were displayed on a clock, I'd live at the 5'o'clock mark) Other places aren't doing so well.



Things are bad for a lot of people, and terrible for the animals. This little guy is going straight from the flood to a warmer place...



...which would be somebody's oven. If you can't get to the grocery store you still gotta eat right?


Things is bad in some places.




.......and worse in others


But the real tragedy is the loss of this Honda


I've pulled these together from the Houston subreddit. A lot of places have closed operations today and told their employees to stay home. Not mine though. Unless you want to use vacation time to stay home. Then you're perfectly welcome to.

I'm lucky but I know there are a bunch of people out there who aren't. There wasn't a lot of warning for this one and it didn't get bad here until late last night. I hope that the worst of it has passed though.

I'll keep y'all posted.


Yep

I think it depends on how and how often you drive. Personally I skipped it on my X6, because I rotate between a few cars.

Also I find service of CT is actually pretty good.

Any 2nd level resellers like 7-11/ PetroCanada or PC will be cheaper than the big 3s.

Vancouver votes to permanently close part of Robson Street to traffic - British Columbia - CBC News

They're closing off Robson, between Howe and Hornby to be a permanent no-traffic zone.

Best part of the article "According to the city;s manager of engineering, Jerry Dobrovolny, at peak times the narrow two-lane street accommodates 400 vehicles, 2,800 pedestrians, 400 buses and three bikes per hour."
