My superintendent is out checking who has a/c units installed.
She doesn't know it's illegal to charge extra fees.
So, what happens next?
Will another form be placed on our doors?
You see in Ontario, the LL can't charge extra for a/c usage UNLESS it's in the lease or they've discussed it with you & you agree.
They put the "How do you want to pay?" form on all of our doors thinking THAT'S a discussion.
The sad part is mentioned above, the Super has no idea she's doing anything illegal & this is how it's done.
I've already discussed the subsidized unit on the first floor that's been empty almost 4 years now. When I urged her not to turn up the heat which would stop the fire alarm from beeping, she said:
"I am just one person. I cannot do anything about that."
If she did, she'd be shown the door & for supers, that means you get 48 hours to leave the unit you live in as part of your remuneration.
Oh ... this is the shortest & curliest that they have them by.
And it just might be that the Rental Industry has the least oversight of all. This is because of cronyism & the fact that our politicians & their elite-minded families on all levels have lined their pockets in the Rental industry.
For relevance, the Gerretsens have always had rentals in the Queen's area & some of those rentals are the slummiest in the city. Both Dad and son were/are in Politics representing the very people they're ripping off to this day with GP Properties .
Nepotism in Politics should be banned.
Oh well, it doesn't really affect me. I wish this fact meant more. I'm still enraged at my neighbors paying $170 more each season than they legally have to.
Ontario ... a place to grow ... if you're a corrupt politician otherwise known as a politician.
