Landlord is difficult to handle
- Landlord enters suites without notice
- Poorly managed, Sussex will only respond if you are firm and persistent
- Landlord will try to keep your damage deposit
- Infested with silverfish bugs (harmless but gross) and mice in basement
- Big dog feces everywhere outside
- Smells like mildew inside
- Doors are easier to open without a key than with a key (unsafe)
- Loud building (24/7 traffic and planes)
- Rent is high for small size of suites
- Black mould in washroom
- Closets do not fit hangers
- Limited laundry washers/dryers (usually broken too)
- Small laundry washing machine (only takes half loads)
- Water runs brown on most days

If you do decide to rent this apartment, make sure you take pictures of every square inch before you move in because they will try to keep your damage deposit no matter how clean you are. I also suggest installing a live camera that detects motion, because the landlord will enter your apartment without notice.

All apartments have their ups and downs, but save yourself the headache – this small loud dingy place is not worth it. I’ve only rented 3 other apartments, but the New Mount Royal Apartments are by far the worst. RUN!

Was told complete lies about this building. They did not clean, paint or repair unit before move in as promised. Found rodent infestation after moved in, they would not repair - had to repair at our own cost. (found out previous renter left because of rodents) Noisy building, other tenants are rude - have had vehicle damaged by poor parking on either side - had to get repaired 3 times so far at my own cost. Laundry facility is filthy (had to purchase our own appliances). Ventilation is filthy - we had the ducts and mini furnace cleaned in the unit at our own cost, but ducts connecting to other units are black, have to vacuum daily. Cigarette smoke from other tenants fill the our unit, even with filters installed.
They say heat included - but thermostat is locked at 17 degrees Celsius in winter. And you pay for electricity on the fan - so heat isn't really included. Hot water included - when it is working. Water often brown - not sure if that's a city or building issue. Windows not installed correctly - cold/hot air from outside comes in through sides. Kitchen not insulated - ice cold in winter. Dishwasher not installed correctly, have to lift and turn to close as it doesn't fit in space under counter. Stove isn't level, fridge damaged and noisy. Snow not cleared from parking lot, need AWD and snow tires to climb over snow to park. This building is in need of repair, and in desperate need of a care taker who cares <section removed to comply with terms>. building is dirty and broken - To top it off, we handed in our notice - Legally, they do not have to give notice when showing the unit to potential renters - and they don't - they just come right in when ever they want. Disgusting treatment of tenants.
Just because I rent does not mean I have to and I cannot afford to purchase a house. Perhaps I don't want to invest in real-estate. I am treated if though I am homeless and they are doing me a favor by letting me squat in the unit.

pricing is ridiculous. management - wish it would be much better. rented for a year. managing company rises the price for all existing tenants but proposes much lower ones for new tenants. They cant explain it. building half full as a consequence. airport just in 4 blocks. not noisy but NOOOISY. plus portage driveway. plus several caretakers which you can hardly find when you need... I'm moving out. easily found 2 bdrm in the same area for the price they want for 1 bd. + not as close to landing planes.
