I moved into this building over a year ago and since then have had bed bugs multiple times and they just will no go AWAY!!!!!!!! The owner of this building is a piece of shit and so is the property management company. My bathroom is full of mold, there are tiles falling off the wall and my kitchen cupboards are dilapidated. Oh! and recently there was a funny smell in my kitchen so i pulled out my fridge to clean inside and behind it (thought it might be old food) turns out there were three dead

mice behind my fridge. Nice. The property management company will not do repairs and all complaints go unheard and nothing is ever done. I've been living with a suite that is embarrassing ever since I moved in, and the only reason I moved in is because repairs and updates were promised. This building,and it's owners are so shady. If I could afford to move I would. I woke up with bites again today!!! Here we go again!
DO NOT MOVE IN HERE

Seeing as the last report was in 2009, here's a newer report. The building is under new management, but a few months after we moved in, we had our apartment sprayed due to neighbors having bed bugs. A few months after that, I rolled over to find a little red bug on my pillow, captured it, called pest control and they confirmed that it was indeed a bed bug, and we had our apartment sprayed. They survived after that and the number of bugs increased within a couple of weeks. We had the apartment tr

eated again, and this morning I woke up to find my boyfriend killing a larger bed bug than what we've seen so far. There have been a number of other apartments with the same issue, and apartments getting treated every couple of months. We are moving and have to throw out all of our furniture. So far there have been more reports of bed bugs in the building on the 2nd and 4th floors.

I dont have to report bed bugs I just have to say GO stuff YOURSELF for discriminating against pitbulls!!! There the most loving dogs on the planet and because of your inability to learn more about the breed instead of just assuming is why innocent dogs are being treated horrible! You have Probably never even spent time with the breed because your to busy crossing the street trying to get away! Please next time just think of how you would feel if someone crossed the road to get away from you.


After ignoring the condemned balconies, broken windows that are never fixed, seeing the building manager vacuuming with a cigarette hanging out of his mouth, laundry facilities that do not work, and many drug users and dealers who reside in the building, BED BUGS WERE THE LAST STRAW!!! Living on the 4th floor for close to a year has made it necessary to abandon an expensive laz-e-boy recliner, bed, couch, and several artricles of clothes and luggage. Landlords do nothing about complaints and hav

e made us super resentful about our entire experience at 405 Catherine. RENTERS BEWARE!!!!

Ex caretaker-located resided @ 405 Catherine Street, Victoria BC building has had bedbug infestation for yrs 1st & 2nd floor are riddled with them including common areas hallways (carpet) laundry room. Building is never properly treated (landlords Mehta Family are cheap east indian creeps). Visiters whom have visited this building have transported bedbugs to their homes so it's a good idea to stay OUT of this building. If you take a close look in the building the walls/interior are covered with

bedbugs it's a ongoing frustration to tenants, once you devide to vacate you have no choice but to abandon all belongings.

Because it has had a serious issue regarding bedgugs the units in this building are not suitable for living in as a result it should be condemned and or ripped down.

Best of luck to previous tenants and any one who dares to reside there.

ps
To the landlords karma's gonna get you!

I recently moved to 405 catherine and was told by sonny mehta the owner that this building was recently purchased over by pacific west and that they were renovating the whole building well it\'s been a 2months and sadly no one has been doing anything about the Bed Bugs my poor 4yr old daughter was complaining about itchy sores and bugs in her bed So i looked at her bed didn\'t notice anything, when i asked the owner he DENIED everything but soon admitted to the bed bugs and mice said that someth

ing was being done...Well nothing is being done on top of that he\'s a liar and a thief, R.T.A is not doing it\'s job when it comes down to it The building is not liveable and should be torn down and or property should be sold! After the fire last night this building is NOT SAFE. I\'ll have to leave my furniture aswell it is really sad to see slumlords getting away with this.

I rented a suite on the 3rd floor, at the time right beside the landlords suite. TERRIBLE ! I was never told about the bed bugs until after I moved in. My rent was 750 and the landlord is just a scum, aswell as the owner. I had massive bites from the bedbugs and had to leave every peice of furnituure I owned behind at there expense for doing nothing regarding the bed bugs. This appartment should be shut down by the city and have major reno's or just be torn down all together. I had a WONDERFUL v

iew of the inner harbour from my mouldy falling apart balcony though that was suppsose to be fixed. Not to mention the pitbull that lived across from me and the drug addicts above me, it was not a pretty situatiion ! DO NOT RENT THERE !!!!!!!!!!!!!
