All landlords are required to have an agent in Saskatchewan to whom the tenant may deliver notices or documents required under the Act (section 83 of the Act). Complete Form 1 - Power of Attorney and file it with the Office of Residential Tenancies.

If an out-of-province landlord does not file a valid power of attorney with the Office of Residential Tenancies, a tenant may serve the Director of the Office of Residential Tenancies with any notice intended for the landlord (section 82), including, for example, Notice to Vacate and Notice of a Hearing. If the Office of Residential Tenancies doesn't have a Power of Attorney from an out-of-province landlord, it is possible for tenants to vacate and for orders may be made against the landlord without the landlord receiving notice.

In lieu of Form 1, a corporate landlord may file a copy of the power of attorney required under The Corporations Act for out-of-province corporations carrying on business in Saskatchewan.  Any landlord that is required by law to file a power of attorney for any other purpose may submit a copy of the power of attorney to the Director of the Office of Residential Tenancies to determine if the power of attorney is sufficient for the purpose of section 82.  The landlord should inform the person appointed that they may receive documents served under The Residential Tenancies Act, 2006.
