This is the worst place I have ever lived. I was extremely excited to move in - the building is so unique, the area is fantastic, and the suite we were moving into was particularly attractive. Let me just start off by saying the caretakers who live here are lovely people, but globe general agencies is terrible, and i will never rent with them again. After about 5 months, we noticed a very dark mold forming all over the bathroom cieling. We checked the rest of the suite and sure enough it was EVERYWHERE. Inside unused cupboards, etc. We told Globe immediately and they said they would send a cleaner. We waited as the mold continued to visibly sprout all over our apartment, more and more each day it seemed. The cleaner arrived, and when he left, sure enough he missed a huge patch in the living room (not to mention he didnt check under the carpet and I would be willing to bet big money there is nasty mold under there). Apparently, the reason for this mold is the bathroom ceiling fan was broken. Due to the improper cleaning, I felt that there was still a ton of mold and convinced Globe to move us into a different suite - which was half the size and $30 more per month. (We did not get any type of deal, or apology). Sure enough moving our stuff upstairs, we find mold behind our furniture (our bed, shelves, etc). Just covered.

Moving on to the new suite they put us in. They seemed to be doing construction on the building from the day we moved in to the day we moved out. They would begin their construction at 8AM every day - and this construction involved chipping paint off the windows - which was extremely extremely loud. It was like someone hitting my bedroom window with a hammer every single morning for hours. I would get up and blast music and the noise was still audible.

Have I complained enough? Probably. But there's more.
We were under the impression our rent was $910 each month in the upstairs apartment.. So that is what we paid, each month. When we moved out, we cleaned well and were told we would get our full damage deposit back. When we recieved the cheque it was for about half of the deposit. I called globe and apparently our rent was not $910 each month. We were underpaying every month and Globe did not even attempt to notify us, not once. (which makes no sense to me???)

The suites are small, overpriced, and have zero storage. There are no dishwashers or air conditioners. The building has about 30 suites and only 2 washers and 2 dryers, and it costs $5 to do a load of laundry.

I was so so so so glad to be finished my lease here. I have moved to Corydon and I do miss living 30 seconds away from Shoppers and the LC lol, but DAMN I AM SO GLAD TO BE GONE.

The Roslyn is a party building, so the noise can be pretty bad sometimes. The property management company (Globe General Agencies) has taken months to deal with a serious issue in our apartment. They also over-value their 1 bedroom apartments. With the discount I pay under 700 a month, but the without the discount the rent would be over 1000. For the state of the building and the poor service, that is hugely over-valued. Globe pops down the discount whenever they want to raise the rent higher than is permitted by statute.
