I'm not walking away and paying more for somewhere else because he wants to live like a college student. I'm going to stay and house hunt and avoid the headache of moving again and again. Like I said I'm working 60 hour weeks because of this pandemic and I don't have time to do that crap.PointsHubby wrote: ↑ It’s not worth playing games with this guy...
That never works out well for a Tenant
Go by the book here 100%
You are not required to do maintenance
That’s the landlord / owners responsibility
You are entitled to a peaceful enjoyment of your home
He’s not providing that
You could call bylaw about the noise
But he knows that’s you complaining
And let’s face it ...
He’s not the type to change his ways
Best advice here
ITS TIME TO LEAVE this crap behind
You’ve been a GREAT TENANT
That he hasn’t appreciated (good tenants are hard to find)
And he’s TAKEN ADVANTAGE OF THAT
DOWNRIGHT ABUSED THAT RELATIONSHIP
So it’s time to end it
Time for you to go / move
Moving twice sucks for sure
But your sanity is worth it
Get your ducks in a row
Best info here was back at Replies # 7 and # 12 by @CNeufeld
Your GF and you need to double down on the home search
Get to the bank
Work with your RE Agent
You need a house solution by April ... if not sooner
Worse case scenario ... find a really temporary arrangement to bridge the gap
Be that another rental, a room, a house share, etc
In reality ...
6 months isn’t a long time
But it is if you are being tortured
PS... the law here is ON YOUR SIDE
All you gotta do is know your rights on how to get out of this lease
And then go thru the proper channels
At the end of the day I'm paying to live in this place. I'm not leaving because of his parties. The last place I left because the landlord and his gf had their 3rd kid and this child would NEVER stop crying 24/7 and she told me to deal with it and she's not coddling her newborn.
When I left I put up ads all over the place stating to do not rent the basement at that address as the landlord cares about nothing and the gf is even worse.
But yes, no more property maintenance. I'll shovel my entrance and area for the car... Nothing else. If he tells me I have to do it then hell be getting a letter in his never checked mailbox stating it's $100 every time I shovel snow on his side and stairs, if it goes over an hour then that will be higher. Probably not enforceable but I don't care.
But for sure if I or my gf get injured on those stairs when going to get mail I will definitely sue the hell out of him.
