I can attest that the building supers are never around, except one one day: rent day. I had never missed a cheque but had to change cities. I was lucky my new landlord was able to contact the old one because they called on the 1st.

In addition, either the landlord or the super are incredibly dishonest. I left my suite in good condition, yet they charged an 800 dollar fee to clean an 800 sq. ft. apartment! I could have seen a small fee for clea

ning the carpet and perhaps the oven (though really that should be bourne by the property owners).

Soooooo, did you have bedbugs ?
Did you just come here to rant about something other than bedbugs?
Did you read this is a bedbug registry, and not a place just to gossip ?
That would be a very big bill, never saw one that big for cleaning before.
You must be very bored.

To Whom It May Concern,


We have been reading the posts of supposed previous tenants who were 'eaten alive by bedbugs' at our building.

We have NEVER had anything like that happen.

Once a tenant reported they suspected bedbugs we IMMEDIATELY called our pest control specialist,PCO Orkin, a well known and trusted company, gave the tenant detailed instructions on how to prepare, offered them help, bags, tape, etc… and oversaw the whole procedure to completion.

We have had VERY f

ew bedbug problems and the ones we did have were cleared up as quickly as possible, with scheduled visits,the first within days if not the same day, to ensure nothing was missed.

Bedbugs can arrive on luggage, clothing, backpacks in delivery vans,on shoes to name but a few ways!

We even outlined each suite with diatomaceous earth and filled in wall plugs to prevent bugs, all or any, travelling suite to suite.

We have notices posted in our elevators informing everyone of this unique Vancouver problem.

We discourage tenants buying used or flea market finds and we discuss bedbugs when anyone enquires about available suites.

To our knowledge, we are going above and beyond to protect our tenants and will continue to do so.

Our tenants are important to us and we will not risk their comfort.Happy tenants = happy managers.

For those of you using this registry to ascertain the cleanliness and quality of our building I would advise you to be aware disgruntled tenants could falsely post here, misaddressed posts,etc…There are no guidelines and it seems to me little is done to make sure the posts are valid and I have noticed, no suite numbers or signatures are available.

We do not have a way to refute these posts so we are writing this.
This registry does serve a useful purpose but it should not be accepted as 100% accurate,please ask the building managers and other tenants yourself to get the real information.


Thank you,

Jason Waddell ,mgr

i moved in and was eaten alive with bed bugs. the managers lie and try to dodge questions. you can never find them either. i did ask if there were any pest problems and told no and told how great everythings is. and they are immoral. give your rent money to better investors. the landlord told me he wasn't supposed to spend money. had to throw out near new mattress and futon and linens, etx. big headache and no body cared. and lies!


Ask before you rent?

What landlord is going to admit to bedbugs?

get real!


After living in the suite for a few months, our room was ridden with bed bugs which resulted in months of inconvenience, throwing out a virtually brand new mattress and potential infestation of a new couch.

The neighbors said they hadn't had problems that year, but our suite was infested.

The landlord had it sprayed, we had to purchase mattress covers and keep our belongings in storage and adopted the habit of vacuuming daily.

Ask, before you rent!
