Apartment Hunting Tips


Choosing the right place to live requires weighting different options. If you are planning to rent in Toronto, below are a few things that you should consider.

  1. Check hot water pressure – turn on all taps yourself.
  2. Check if toilet works – flush it yourself
  3. Check the shower pressure.
  4. Locks on all doors – ask landlord if they’ll be changing the lock after the previous tenant leaves or if it’s okay for you to change it yourself (Note: If you change the lock yourself, you will probably have to provide the landlord with a key, but you can usually take the lock with you when you move out.).
  5. Do windows open and close properly and do locks work?
  6. What kind of heating?
  7. Are utilities included?  Estimated cost?
  8. Is the street noisy?
  9. Are there vermin?
  10. Can you paint the walls?  If so, do you need to restore the apartment to the original colour when you leave?
  11. Is there a super in the building?
  12. Who is responsible for repair costs?  Plumbing costs?
  13. What is the neighbourhood like?
  14. Are you close to transit? – do a dry run to school before making a decision.
  15. Are pets allowed?  What restrictions are there?
  16. Where are the laundry facilities and how much do they cost?
  17. Where is the garbage/recycling area?  Who is responsible for taking the garbage to the curb?  On what days?
  18. Who is responsible for shoveling snow, raking leaves, etc.?
  19. Is there enough storage space?
  20. How long is the lease?  How do you break a lease?

If you feel your rights as a tenant are being ignored, or are completely unaware of the rights you have, call the Tenant Hotline, 416-921-9494. For more information click here
