Under the Residential Tenancy Act of Alberta a Security Deposit can only equal up to a maximum of one month of ๐—ฅ๐—˜๐—ก๐—ง.

If utilities, pet fee or parking are specified separately in a lease then they cannot be collected as a security deposit of rent.

๐—˜๐˜…๐—ฎ๐—บ๐—ฝ๐—น๐—ฒ ๐—ผ๐—ณ ๐—œ๐—ก๐—–๐—ข๐—ฅ๐—ฅ๐—˜๐—–๐—ง ๐—ง๐—ฒ๐—ฟ๐—บ ๐—ถ๐—ป ๐—Ÿ๐—ฒ๐—ฎ๐˜€๐—ฒ:

The tenant will pay a total of $2,300 per month which includes rent at $2,000, flat rate utilities at $250 and monthly pet fee of $50.

***A security deposit can only be collected on what you have specified the ๐—ฅ๐—˜๐—ก๐—ง amount to be (which is $2,000) and NOT the total of $2,300. This over payment needs to be paid back to the tenants as soon as possible. ***

๐—˜๐˜…๐—ฎ๐—บ๐—ฝ๐—น๐—ฒ ๐—ผ๐—ณ ๐—–๐—ข๐—ฅ๐—ฅ๐—˜๐—–๐—ง ๐—ง๐—ฒ๐—ฟ๐—บ ๐—ถ๐—ป ๐—Ÿ๐—ฒ๐—ฎ๐˜€๐—ฒ:

Tenant shall pay monthly, in advance to the Landlord a rental payment of $ 2,300 per month on or before the first day of each and every month of the term of this Agreement. The Tenant shall pay for all (or the following portion: UTILITIES ARE INCLUDED IN RENT ) of the sewer, water, electrical, natural gas and other utilities and charges respecting the Tenant's occupation and use of the premises from the Commencement Date until the return of the premises to the Landlord by the Tenant . Additional utilities to be paid by the Tenant: Cable/Internet & Phone

With this correct term now you can collect the total amount owing as a security deposit of $2,300.
