Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
So basically, today i went to check out a new apartment in Toronto. It seemed ok, it was a little smaller than the floorplan on their website. I said i wanted to fill out an application, so i go back to the supers office. When i get there, five things happened that really turned me off of the place.
One, some weirdos came in to drop off their termination notice, the supers were rude to them. Plus they seemed generally crazy, and they werent the only people with a weird vibe i saw at that place.
Two, some guy called, his pipes broke, they told him they werent going to fix it till monday...
Three, the apartments going to cost 50 dollars more a month than listed on the website, plus parking fees...
Four, they want to charge me a fucking key deposit which is I know is goddamn illegal, so basically they want 2100 dollars from me before i move in (The apartment costs 800 a month, plus parking)....
Five, the place just seemed fucking sketchy.
So basically i had already filled out the rental app, and was just going over the other information with her when im thinking "This place is fucking terrible, i dont want to be stuck here for a year". But everythings all signed, and im thinking its only an application, so i should be ok. But as im driving home, i get the sinking feeling that this is something thats going to come back and bite me in the ass.
So, TL;DR, how binding is an apartment rental application in Ontario, Canada? I really dont want to live at that place.
