This property rents a basement and upper level suite. Top floor doesn't have a private entrance, basement does. Family of the landlords live on the main level of house - big Indian family, lots of people coming and going. Rent is paid in cash, you have to hassle them for receipts. Neither apartment has a suite number or identifier, all mail goes to main level entrance, and good luck getting a pizza delivery to either apartment.

There has been a high turnover of tenants. The house needs a lot of work. From the exterior, especially the back, paint is peeling, siding is in bad shape, yard is junky, they just don't take care of the house, and won't do repairs unless they can do it themselves, and workmanship will be poor. As long as things are "sot of" functioning, they are "fine". Soundproofing is pretty bad, and they expect very quiet tenants. You'll need to like the smell of curry. Some electrical outlets work better than others, and fuses will blow on occasion. The main level controls the heating - basement tenants tend to freeze, top floor tenant bakes.

Coin laundry is on site but outdoors (under the deck) so constantly covered in dirt, and doesn't work properly (buttons don't work to change temperature, coin slot jams - probably because it is exposed to so much moisture in the air). You will have mice problems in the fall, they won't do anything about it and have blamed the problem on their tenants (even though there are multiple visible entry points, like where the outdoor laundry pipes tie into the house). They're bad at communicating and can be hard to reach sometimes.

Location is decent just off W Broadway, with bus 2, 22, 9, 14, 99 all within a couple blocks. There is pretty much always street parking available.

tldr; property is rough around the edges but livable if you're desperate, landlords are way too chill and a bit nosey - they treat you more like a houseguest than a paying tenant sometimes. If you need something like repairs they aren't likely to get done. Decent short-term option for UBC students. They'll let you break your lease if you find a new tenant. Could be worse.
