Let's be clear; if you are moving here, it's because you are desperate. Either you can't afford to live anywhere else, have had trouble finding housing, or have pets that no one will take.

When you try to rent the apartment, he will likely try to engage you in a bidding war to get more money from you. If there is anything wrong with the unit and you complain, he may try to blame it on you and threaten to take you to the Rental Tenancy Board. Don't expect to get your deposit back - he will make claims that there is fundamental damage to the unit that you have caused. The landlord also refuses to attend court dates, which could make getting that money back through legal channels very difficult.

The building is riddled with structural damage, has severe drainage issues which result in flooding and mould during periods of heavy rain, is home to large colonies of mice that run between units and rats that enter the walls of living and bedrooms from the rotting exterior. Many units house cockroaches and earwigs.

There is one hot water unit for the entire building, meaning you are very unlikely to be able to have a warm bath or shower during the busy times of day (7am-10am, 4pm-9pm), particularly during the winter months when many tenants use the hot water to warm themselves because most of the units do not have functioning baseboard heaters and terrible insulation.

The people in the building are generally wonderful people in terrible situations, but expect the police to show up at least once every two weeks to deal with one or two bad apples who display violent tendancies. Some of the tenants have very verbally abusive relationships and the thin walls mean you will be living through their personal dramas. The doors have locks that very rarely function and are often left slightly ajar, to permit 'small business owners' who sell products from their apartments to enter and exit on a regular basis.

All that said, if you can find a way to accept the situation, it is pretty centrally located, takes animals and isn't as expensive as other places nearby. Also, if you're interested in trying your hand at home improvement, it's not a bad place to learn new skills. Be warned and informed and make your decision very carefully!

THE WORST BUILDING AND LANDLORD. There are cockroaches, mice, and bedbugs in just about every unit in this building. <section removed to comply with terms> The building is even listed in this news article: http://www.metronews.ca/news/vancouver/2013/02/06/vancouvers-five-worst-rental-buildings-do-you-live-in-one.html
