“We moved into an old farmhouse that had been renovated...”

Written on: 01/06/2017 by AishaCooney328 (1 review written)

We moved into an old farmhouse that had been renovated with addition on addition on addition. Needless to say, the place needed work. We knew that. We moved in full aware it was not mint condition. But we needed a place. Rent was fine, split with another couple. Then the issues began. We were never informed that the electrical panels were BLOCKED OFF by structures that were literally SCREWED into the wall (sorry but that's illegal). This was a major problem because living in Metchosin through the winter, you run into a lot of power outages. Then there were the rats, again, expected in the country. Anytime the landlord was contacted about issues we were treated like children. (We are all in our mid-late 20's) As long as we didn't call her, everything was fine. Until it wasn't. The couple we lived with split up. One left. So we were offered to remain and take up their share of the rent, or move out a month early. We chose the latter. Upon moving out, my partner and I had cleaned our area spotless (except a tiny spot on the carpet), MUCH better condition that how we had received it. The roommate that had already moved out, didnt clean a thing or move out their stuff. So us who remained were forced to choose, loose the DD or clean the rest of the house. My partner and I chose to leave the DD to our other roommate who decided to try and clean. Then the landlord hired someone to clean the house.... which was pretty bloody clean by the time we left, and after, told us it would cost her OVER $600 to clean!?!?!?! Are you serious... Anyway, look out for her if you're under 35 years old... She was stuck up and had a 'holier than thou' attitude when dealing with her tenants.
