So I have been having some problems with my apartment. One of the problems we have been having is that the floor tiles have kept popping out of the floor. It happened before in the summer and we called the superintendent to have it fixed. We went on our honeymoon came back and the floor was still unfixed. At this point we made a stink to building management and they finally sent some one to fix it. Unfortunately a few weeks later the floor tiles in a different area of the apartment started to pop out again. It has now been close to 3 weeks since we reported the problem and it still has not been fixed. We are thinking about taking this to the Ontario Rental Housing Tribunal. Below is a pic of what is happening.
We also had an issue with how often they were emptying the garbage bins. They would let it pile up to the point that you couldn't even throw stuff to the top of it. Below is an example
The third issue we were having was with mold. This is more serious as mold is very dangerous to our health. The mold was building up around the windows. We called the building management and reported the problem. They said it was because of the difference in temperature between the outside and inside. This is completely ridiculous. This is Canada it is supposed to be colder outside than it is inside. THAT IS THE POINT OF BEING INSIDE!!!! They also suggested it would stop if we left the windows open. Do they actually expect us to leave the windows open in the winter?
Eventually they came and wiped the place down and repainted the effected area. We also called someone from the board of health to make sure that the place was safe for us. They said it was. Now I wipe the windows down myself every other week with disinfectant wipes.
Honestly at this point I am just fed up. We need to live in an apartment for a little while longer while we save for our first home but these issues are truly annoying. Maybe I have been spoiled by living in a house my whole life but I don't think that these things are supposed to happen.
That's it for this week.
Next week ... It's the busy time at work
