Hate to be bumping this post...

My friend got a call from RTB two weeks ago saying the landlord has filed for a review and claims that their contract states $700 instead of $1400. So basically they altered the contract then filed for a review.

God damn this is gonna be a huge mess.

You'll be fine if you have a copy of the original contract. If not, its your word v theirs.

The best thing you can do is let them talk.

I like to keep my notes humorous and sarcastic. I find it helps get the message across if people can chuckle at the letter.

Well the message you're trying to get across is unpleasant ("stop doing xyz") - so humour definitely helps lighten the situation!

Funny, never really heard much about bed bugs when growing up. The around 2007, that's when I first starting hearing about bed bugs.
Nasty nasty little critters.

Bring back DDT and kill everything or keep spending $$$ to band-aid the problem.

I don't really know what 'the' singular answer is.

If you look on Bed Bug Registry - Check Apartments and Hotels Across North America it's just retarded.

I find a main problem is people wanting to deal with it as cheaply as possible. I get it. You really get nothing for your money. There are also a bunch of shady operators out there cashing in on dealing with them. We had one guy come here, and I had already had another company come and do a dog inspection for $125. He charged $90 and looked around with the light from a cell phone.

With spray, so much depends on the prep from the tenant. As I said above, you are usually dealing with people that are paycheck to paycheck so to tell them you need to take EVERYTHING soft that you own and wash it all at once, oh, and then we need to throw out some of your furniture-you are really dealing a death blow to them.

So the problem continues to linger. And then spread to adjoining units. And then a person visits a friend and deposits them there. Then you have 2 buildings affected. And so on and so on it goes.

And with spraying, it doesn't affect the eggs. So 2 weeks after spraying, you have them again, and hopefully kill them before they lay eggs.

We advocate heat treating. One shot, its done and guaranteed. It's expensive, but worth it. And it kills eggs.

I think if buildings handled it that way, then you would notice the spread decrease dramatically.

When we were dealing with it in the building, we ended up finding one in our sofa. Notice the difference. We live clean, normal lives and found one bug. Thankfully, it was only one and we never had a problem, but I would have lost it. It's bad enough I have to interact with some of these people, but my home is my home man. Of all the tenants we've ever had, I think 6 have ever made it past the front door.

I remember when I was young, my grandmother was typical asian in that she would bring home whatever was free that she either saw on the side of the road or her friends were giving away. We had a nasty roach problem one day but after some heavy spraying and telling her not to bring anything home, the roaches disappeared.

Many years later, she moved out and into an old folks retirement apartment to be closer to her friends. When she passed away and we were cleaning her apartment, the roach problem was much much worse than some of the grosses downtown apartments I had the unfortunate pleasure of working in. And no, she never quit bringing "free" stuff home when she moved out.

Tenant Verification Website? Tell me more

These letters list him disturbing the quiet enjoyment and threatening the health and safety. I get a copy of the 2 police reports and I also write a letter regarding his late payment of rent 3 or more times within the last 10 month and add to the health and safety issue and note that he is chain smoking inside his apartment. This also now become a damage issue. I give his an apt inspection letter....enter and proceed to take photos of all the nicotine stains on the walls, ceilings, windows, etc. and any other damage that I see.

I put together a pretty little package....which in all reality takes me a couple phone calls and about an hour to do. I march over to his door, give him a 30 day eviction notice and how him the package. Tell him what is happening....cause ya know...I dig ruining a dudes day.

He has two option:
1- Take it and move. Uses me as a reference...I am honest. Has issues finding a place because of shitty reference but then learns to not give my name. Clean his apt from top to bottom, make no further issues. Spends hours upon hours trying to rid the apt of all traces of cig smoke...he'll be lucky to get half his deposit back. But, he will leave with his tail between his legs...if he has found a place.

2-Fight it. Fine. This is my fav! He has to take the day off work and go to the Tenancy and to file a wrongful eviction. He pays $50 (which, I know he doesn't have). I get notification and file my own package (see above) with all the reasons I have to evict. At the same time, I also file for an order of possession (which allows me to call a bailiff, claim his shit if he doesnt move, and have the police physically remove him-so much FUN! I love it when dudes cry). We have our arbitration case lay it all out...I must add, this is like clockwork for me. I always win. I Know my shit. This dude goes apeshit on the phone...cause lets face it, they all do. Not only do I win my case, but now he loses his security deposit, has refunds me my $50 that I have to pay to file an eviction notice, I charge him for all the damage and not cleaning (note: I dont hire cheap people), and he has no place to live because not only do I give him a terrible reference, but I also register it on the Tenant Verification website.

So this dude is having to take days off work to file his case, to go to arbitration, and now to find a place b/c with the order of possession, the branch only gives you like 10 days. Meanwhile, I have all the time in the world for a little entertainment.

Wanna fuck up a dudes week, take his house and make him pay you for it.


So remember, when I say do you want the hard way or easy way...Always take the easy way. I don't fuck around...it is truly the easy way. At least then, you get fake smile, maybe a hand shake, and I'll give you and okay reference...hell, you may ever get some of your deposit back. Cause lets put it simple...it aint my money and in the grand of things, a few hundred dollars to the building owners means shit...BUT, a few hundred dollars to a dude that can barely make his rent now is going to fuck him.

And don't forget...I always win. I don't go into a fight unless I know I'm going to win it.

As for the Donkey (above), he got an extra month, he got the smile, and the handshake. Loses about $100 in cleaning (he did an okay job) and can go on living his life with little disruption.

At the end of the day, I don't give a fuck...just get the fuck out. You do it or I do it. The end result will be the same.

It's the site of the company we send credit checks to.

It's not officially a list of bad tenants site, but they specialize in tenant/credit issues.

do people that rent out their basement use this, or is it mostly used by the building management industry?
