This building is absolutely horrendous, I moved into this building and stayed for three months.
Upon viewing the apartment they told us that the building had a roach and mice problem and our apartment had been sprayed and cleaned.
Soon after moving in the roach problem was so bad that I couldn't go a day without seeing at least 6 cockroaches within 2 minutes upon turning on a bathroom or kitchen light.

I lived and resided in the building for about 4 months roughly and since moving in I had

nothing but stress and headaches, Approaching the winter months there was no heat whatsoever, We asked for our apartment to be sprayed numerous times but they never did and finally prior to me moving out they finally did and it never did a damn thing.

That whole building is entirely infested from top to bottom, everything needs to be torn out, they are living within every crack in the wall, behind the walls in the kitchen, and panel that has any space in between.

Painters drink on duty in the building and stay illegally on the premise in un-rented apartments and visit tenants in the building and do drugs while on duty.

The supervisors are hired off the street and illegally with criminal backgrounds, They are promised free cogenco tv, free rent and $1000 a month and last months deposit back.

It's actually free months rent, $1000 dollars (Half of the time it takes months to get paid) Last months rent is taken and never given back, Supervisors are let go with no cause and no pay or severance.
The illegally hired supervisors are 24/7 on call and duty while JOE AND SARAH do nothing, Sarah doesn't clean or look after any of the work, Joe threatens and throws around slander about tenants in the building and other supervisors.

HAZMAT and POLICE are called into the building on a daily basis, Due to fights, drugs, Homeless people squatting in the building in empty apartments.

Hazmat cleaned out units a couple months back that had large amounts of chemicals used for making meth, They found units with dead cats and kittens and in two cases NO LIE even Dead babies that were decaying.

NO ONE SHOULD LIVE HERE! EVEN IF YOU ARE DESPERATE!
This place will ruin you!
This place made me so sick while living there with the black mold and no heat that shortly after moving out I ended up in the hospital and now I am chronically ill.

There is no safety in place and crack dealers and junkies wedge the main doors open so that people may freely come and go in the building.
There are blind spots in the building where cameras arent placed and on one occasion someone actually got stabbed.

Whatever you do, please for your sake do not move to this building, This place needs to be commended and written off, NO ONE SHOULD GO THROUGH THIS.
NOT EVEN YOU.

i have lived at 150 sanford ave n and it was HORRIBLE.
i lived there for a year from november 2013 till november 2014 and in that time they changed their whole staff about 3 times.
i personally never had bedbugs but ive had a few roaches
ive had my apartment sprayed 4 times in that year i lived there and right before i moved i asked them for 2 months to spray it and nothing was done.
i had a mouse too right before i moved that i ended up finding dead.
it also takes them FOREVER to fix some

thing IF your lucky enough that they come fix it.
i had asked them to fix something 9 months before i moved and when i moved it still wasnt fixed.
as the person below me states EVEN IF YOU'RE DESPERATE DON'T GO THERE

This is a scary neighborhood. This high-rise is disgusting. Apart from this building falling apart, it is filled with drugs, gross odors and violence. No one has written a comment on here for so long because everyone had to throw out their things due to bug infestations. Yeah they might fix stuff here and there but let's face the facts - this building should have been demolished along with the school across the way, a couple years back! SO grosss If you are desperate for a place anywhere, do not

go here! See for yourself and google news this

Happy in east end suckas =)

I dont live at 150 Sanford. Nor would I ever!
I feel for the tenants and what their going through at this time. Funny thing is... when you read these comments about the building...
All the positive ones are made by the same ppl.
Do they think ppl are stupid?! Your grammar is poor. Spelling is poor. And punctuation is horrendous! Not to mention... they use the EXACT SAME use of word in comments that were posted months apart. Idiots!
Eg:

1. "the maintanace crew is quick to help

with things that POP up

2. "The housekeeping are always trying to keep things CLEAN AND TIDY".

NEXT TIME THE OWNER SHOULD PAY OFF IDIOTS WHO HAVE SOME INTELLIGENCE AND GRAMMAR!

Well I never read such a load of garbage in my life. You are retarded. I have no doubt you will be evicted from your new place just as quick.
Every good building puts out its trash. The landlord runs a great building. I love it here, never any trouble since the new owners purchased the building, the building is super clean everyday. I have never seen any roaches, bed bugs or mice in my unit, or in any hallways.
I recommend everyone to come see for themselves.


I don't know how the people in this building afford the rent. But the building is full of dirty, dirty, dirty people. There are cockroaches and bed bugs everywhere. Your neighbors I guarantee are drug dealers or crack heads. The building owners will let ANY BODY move in. If you like to live with the cockroaches, bed bugs and drug dealers this is the place for you. Oh and by the way the police told me there are at least 2 stabbings a year in this building and told me to get out with just the clot

hing on my back!

My husband and I looked at 150 Sanford Ave back in 2011 and never rented due to bedbugs. In Jan we came back and looked at a 3bdrm and feel in love with the lay out and the size, we have had EXCELLENT service from the office, I have not seen any kind of bug or anything else for that matter, every place has issues its not the place you live in its the people you have over..I AM HAPPY WITH MY APARTMENT HERE AND I WOULD RECOMMENED ANYONE TO MOVE IN...


Any of the reviews on here that are good say all the same thing but by different people, so please don't believe them. I went to a viewing and I seen people with bites and a cockroach on the wall in the hallway!

the elevator was super slow too and they didn't seem very friendly either.


We have recently moved in to a three bedroom unit at 150 Sanford avenue north. I had been told some negative comments about this building. I have to honestly say I have had nothing but positive results with my apartment and the building. The owner is very helpful and the cleaning staff are always keeping the building clean and tidy. Their is work men who are more than willing to take care of any problems that pop up.Truly the building is spotless.


i moved in oct 1 i signed a 12 mth lease part of the lease was agreement not to bring bikes into the building i dont have a bike but i asked why anyway i was told that renovations to the building are at 2 million dollars in last 12 months and because people do not respect the work done in hallways stairwells and elevators by not keeping peddles and handlebars from gouging the new walls and paint, also people running tires up the walls leaving black marks. this means constant repairs to keep the

place looking new. he has provided a locked room with bike racks to lock up your bike,it is well lighted and has security cameras. a friend of mine is looking for an apartment and he told me about this web site i was very surprised to read some of these posts.i have been in many apartments over the years and i have never met a more responsible landlord who cares more passionately about the condition of the building and his tenants.the only people that have a problem here are the ones that have no respect for the building and their neighbours.i have seen no bugs.i recomended this place to my friend without reservation.dan

I just moved in today, and not even one minute after walking in for the first time there was a roach on the kitchen counter and I am on one of the higher floors. Not only that we heard stories tosay that the first three floors are infested with mice and roaches. I am so dissappointed the apartment was left in a horrible mess and I just signed a one year lease. What did I get myself into?


Myself+4 kids moved to 150 Sandford Ave N ,its a great building, the renovations are frantastic and modern living, the staff is very helpful and always with a smile, i can honestly say the building does not have a bedbug problem, and bedbugs can be anywhere or any other building people have to know that. They are great about spraying if you need your apartment sprayed, the building is kept clean and i see the cleaners everyday keeping the keep of the building.

150 Sanford Ave. North has bed bugs, roaches and mice. The bed bugs are travelling from one apartment to the others through electrical outlets, on pets and through people. This building has been bought and sold many times and the present owners will lie to you and tell you their is not much of a problem with bugs, but believe me there is a very big problem. Do not rent an apartment at this address. The building has many problems (plumbing, elevators, electrical, cable ) to name a few, but the be

d bugs and roaches are extremely severe and once you get the bed bug infestation it is close to impossible to get rid of them. Do yourself a favor and just stay away from the place.

I am living in the building for the last few months. Ever since I moved in, I was very impressed by the maintenance crew. Whenever you ask for any repair or mantenance issues things start getting done right away. I will definently reccomend this building to all of my friends.


Don't be fooled by good reports in building. They have lots of bedbug problems even n hallways . They let anyone move in. But other report is right about water and elevators being down. We are on list for for more affordable housing but until that comes we have to stay here. My kids go to Kathy Weaver school and they said they have bugs there too. I would like to get out of this whole area. There seems to have been lots of people who owned the building but problems are always the same.


Moved to this building 2 months ago.
The apartment is beautiful completly renovated and the appliances are all new.
Found the staff very helpful and nice always trying to keep the place clean and in tip top condition.
Didnt find any insects or bed bugs and in general got only good things to say.
I am very happy to live here.

I am in building to and have been here for year before new owners. I think they are Europe people but any way we been bitten by the bedbug and they don't really spray for us and I spray for myself. This problem I told has been here very long time and it gets worse and nothing done. I even see the bugs in hall outside and elevator. Don't know what I do but call city and they say they help but nbody comes here to see. Bad bug in this place.


Hi, i moved in 150 Sandford Ave N with my mother who is ederley within 2 weeks i moved out, its full of coackaroaches, bedbugs and mice, the hallways smell of garbage all the time, its a dump don,t let the renovations fool you! This is why they do no checks of credit and offer money off because its a dump!!!!!!! TOTAL DUMP 150 Sandford Ave N


150 Sandford Ave is seriously full of cockaroaches, mice and bedbugs, the owners will promise you the worled but once you move in and they have your money they turn there back, the elevators do not work proberley, you have to wait forever, the water is shut off always the apartments are way over priced to live with roaches and BEDBUGS DO NOT RENT FROM THEM!

hand to hand contact with anybody no matter where you are, and do not enter other peoples homes. do not invite neighbors in and keep your door closed. one strip of double sided tape under your doorway is very efficient as well. clean your sheets regularly as the high heat from dryers kill bed bugs. most importantly the moment u suspect you may have even one bed bug in your unit speak with management AS SOON AS POSSIBLE! they will immediately spray your apartment as they do not wish to spread the insects. its people who do nothing that cause infestation. bed bugs are EVERYWHERE. allover canada and the us. the more suits in a building equal more chances someone will have them. nothing but good things to say about 150 sanford north so far! great lake view, quiet when it needs to be. people respect the time and do not have music blasting when inappropriate. great staff

This place is full of bedbugs. Mice and cockroaches. I moved in here last month. The owners. Mike forrest. Who shows the apts seems like a good guy not a slumlord. After finding out about all the bugs and such I asked for a return of my rent and was basically told to go to hell now just so you know they prey mostly on forigners to rent their places due to there lack of knowing canadian law. I just moved out and am now happy with my new place. Which cost me a lot of money to rid of their bedbug

s today is oct first. And after they kept my deposit and sent me packing with bedbug costs now at least I am free from them. But definatly not a place you want to go. And they will promise you the world and do nothing
