So this building has a cockroach problem and we've complained for over a month before they did anything bout it and they apparently fumigated the building but only certain suites. So of course they would return and I can't seem to live with the fact there's roaches. How am I supposed to get out of this lease? Caretakers are never around, building is filthy and nothing ever gets fixed around here. Water temperature is always bad. Cupboards and floors are total trash. This whole building just needs to be torn down!

The neighbourhood and location is awesome - West Broadway is beautiful, bus stops are right out side the building, a small grocer, a pharmacy, two medical clinics, a 24-hour convenience store, a yoga/health studio, 3 hair salons and the community centre are all within less than 5 minutes walking distance.

The building, the caretakers, and the owners on the other hand are not so great. The previous caretaker was wonderful for keeping the building cleaned and well maintained but since he left, there has been new caretakers every couple of months and the building is so dirty, inside and out. Maintenance and repairs are seldom done, and usually renters have to get the Tenancy branch involved before required repairs are done in their apartments (this includes repairs that are health threats - mould, fire hazards, etc. As in most older buildings, sound travels, whcih is to be expected - however the caretakers are very slow to react to any late night noise issues (people fighting in hallways, loud music/parties). Heating is by radiator and as long as the water heater doesn't conk out (which it does on a regular basis) the place is quite warm during the colder months. There is no ensuite cooling, but being an old building with heavy brick walls, the suites stay relatively cool in the summer without air conditioning. Air conditioning units are allowed in the windows. Laundry is on-site however the laundry room is filthy and a great place for picking up bedbugs as the machines do not heat enough to kill anything. Storage is also located in the laundry room. Safety - well the neighbourhood is relatively safe however the mailboxes in the one building do not lock and are accessible without a key and the doors are often propped open, so the building is not secure. The fire escapes are poorly lit and poorly maintaned. Parking - no parking with the building but it is available on the streets - for tenants, the city offers an annual parking pass for $25 so the 2-hour limit does not apply. Hot water supply is horrible. To get hot water from the taps, you often have to run them completely open for a number of minutes - for showers, it cuts out regularly (as does the cold) - water pressure and plumbing is incredibly poorly maintained here.

Other issues - there is a consistent bed bug problem, the garbage bin outside is often over flowing, there is no recycling on-site, maintenance workers are allowed into your apartment without notice and without you being present

The place is cheap (for now - they are consistently trying to raise the rent) and provided one can put up with the various nusiances, you get what you pay for. This building has declined considerably i nthe last couple of years, so unless the agency actually takes responsibility for truly maintaining it and not just slapping bandaid solutions over major problems, I would absolutely not recommend this building to potential tenants.

Very noisy, can hear everything neighbours do through walls and floor. Many tenants get drunk and stand in the courtyard arguing all night. Caretaker keeps the halls tidy and smelling nice but it is an old, worn building. Extremely convenient for all bus routes and walking distance to all necessities.
