Think rent prices are too high?
Besides the fact that local house prices are the highest they have ever been, along with yearly rising taxes, utilities, costs of repairs, etc, another fact you can think for high rent prices is the outrageous number of horrific tenants in our area.
Don’t believe me? Well, contrary to popular belief, it is pretty simple for landlords to find the names of people they don’t want to rent to, since full names are all posted on https://www.canlii.org/en/on/onltb/ along with their stories – people owing $10-20-30,000 (couldn’t evict for many many months when COVID began), destroying peoples property, people evicted two years in a row…
So if you find someone you know on there, you can thank them for their contribution to rising rent costs, as well as for landlords being untrusting and asking for things like credit checks or not accepting people on assistance.
