............COCK ROACHES & FIRE HAZARD............

The date today is Oct 23 2012 and we have lived here for a few months at 1080 Kingston Rd. The apt we moved into is one of the newly renovated apts, not to mention the huge price increase in rent that consists of bad living. We were told that the price was high since it is an upgraded apt and that the building is going to be upgraded completely.
The lies started as soon as we viewed the disarrayed apt due to renovations, we were tol

d there was granite counter tops being installed, guess what the counter tops were when we moved in they were laminate garbage. That was the first of the problems we have been dealing with since the 1st week we moved in to this location. We also asked if there were any bug issues in this building because that would effect us from moving into this location, and they said there is no bugs. So we've found cock roaches and so has alot of people that live here. They say its an isolated issue. If this is an isolated issue how is it that there is cock roaches on seperate floors and different ends of the building. they do not want to fumigate the whole building cause they are cheap cock suckers.
At 10:30 pm an electrical problem was happening. Our power was cutting on and off all night and we checked the fuse box and sparks were coming out of it. So i tried to contact the on site super with no answer for the 3rd time. So we went outside of the building to see if it was the whole building and it was only our apt. There was no storm or anything it was an issue with the electrical hook up. So we contacted the on site super over and over with no answer, so we had to sleep on it once again with no reply when there is a fire hazard. So we told the super the following day and he said an electrician can come sometime this week. We couldnt believe there was no concern for the safety of our family and pets. So i was sick of being sluffed off and had made myself clear to have someone in today or i was going to contact the fire dept, he was so quick to respond that the electrician will be here in an hour. So a few hours later an electrician showed up to check the fire hazard and the electrician looked shocked how everything was hooked up and said that all the wires are burning hot and it was all burned on the metal conections he re-stripped the wires and cleaned the black residue off of the fuse box and told us that he wasnt sure how long this will last till it goes on fire that we should just smell the fuse box periodically to smell if anything is burning and that someone should fix the problem asap. the super said he would follow up in a few days with the issue and have it fixed. To this day no one has came to fix it and we had enough we are reporting our issue to the fire dept and most likely to the housing tribunal.

people say this building was nice years ago not any more. i am planning to move out after two yrs. being in this building. i have seen many people already moved out and will be more. left over are old people they gonna move out in the bags. this building becoming building for old age people and trans global put in advertisement they want seniors in this building. i don't like this building i thaught i would. the smell of this building is disgusting never going away summer or winter and no

matter what you doing the smell stays. people cook a lot, using those perfumes (burning oil), you can smell pots of marijuana somebody keeps below, you named. and on top of that they don't have fans in the halls or ventilation system. prety soon there will be so much of those bed bugs. people don't clean up themselves or apartments. not to mention asians is full this building who like to cook a lot. if you do something that the neighbour next to you don't like it they come right away knocking on your door and after that the superintendent comes harasing you.
amen

I suffered an infestation here last year wherein a professional exterminator was brought in and fortunately because I did all the "DO" things I no longer have the little blood-sucking visitors. But despite having to spend over $1500 to replace my bed, dry-cleaning costs, laundry, caulking costs, etc. I was never compensated in any manner. I too plan to be out of this building in the very near future.
