I have nothing but good things to say. Love Tony and Donna. Well kept building.
Clean, but elevators are terrible.
I have saw problems when I first moved in three and a half years . But those problems disappeared when Trans was bought out. Should see the property now in 2016. Nice work Metcaps.
BTW I have no bug problems none. I live in the 758 block and I have seen only seen two very sick ones out in the hall, in recent years, If one was to experience problems you have to ask maybe one question "Leaving things out at night, or in any place that would be attractive? Probably is not a good practice. I follow a simple routine to discourage them from moving in.
Added to that, the present management always works closely and quickly for critters. Hope each tenant follows good practices.
I am a fair person and as unbiased as possible. I have no gain to saying the above. I too run in a problems once in awhile. Even beat MetCap in two court cases. The first I told them was a free be...the next time they made the same mistake would cost them if they made the same mistake.
I knowing the court system and my rights. I know if someone drags your ass out of bed in the morning to go to court and your boss is freaking that your not at work? and property management messed up I simple asked the presiding Judge for restitution. The Judge told MetCap to pay me my days wages after looking at my bank statements. I even called in CBC as added embarrassment to Management.
What people should factor in, and yes there are slum lords out there, no matter where you live or the people your doing business with, once in a while your not going to see eye to eye. Don't get frustrated be calm and get even and get justice!
Did you know the rental tribunal has a doc you could submit and you can have your landlord in court the next month? If the slum lord does not show up. Then the Judge has no other alternative but to award you what your asking....justice!
I have been renting at 40 Fountainhead Rd. for almost 2 years and so far haven't had any problems. No bed bugs, and only saw 1 roach in the sink once. The main issue certainly is lack of heating in the winter, and facing the west we battle heat in the summer. This can be solved with window AC units for summertime, and in the winter having a heater run. The hydro is included in rent so it does't matter how long you run your AC/heat units, which is nice. In the past there were few water outages, but it didn't affect me at all. I pre-packed big bottles of water for next time it happened and used that to wash and clean if I needed to. The grocery store and bus stop are very close, as well as a nice bike trail. I moved here to be close to York University as I finished my degree in 2014. Now there is Rent Moola so I can pay my rent online with few clicks which is super convenient :)
Great company to work with!!
I moved to metcap living 35 fountainhead 3 months ago. So far i'm happy despite the renovations going on, managers & staff are well dedicated. Building is always clean & maintenance issues fast as unexpected. Can't make everybody happy but honestly most problems starts from tenants.
I moved to a Metcap property 7 months ago at 35 Fountainhead & i don't have any idea where these people get there harsh words against the building staffs.i can't blame theme w/ there experience but pls don't generalize because it's not fair for those people who's doing a good job. Our staffs at 35 Fountainhead so far maybe not d best but they're great. It's different from what i read because our building was always clean,maintenance service is way faster than my past residence,sometimes i don't even have to fill out that maintenance form just call the office # & our Building Manager would come in few minutes to see & fix d problem. I even asked my friends & relatives to move in this building. There are some renovations but that has nothing to do w/ services from d staff & for sure it's for more comforts of d tenants when it's done. I don't know about d past but for now as i experienced our building is so so fine. Not all Metcap properties are similar so pls don't generalize. In addition, the resident managers (binu&dipesh)names u see on site doesn't exist. Our resident managers are hardworking filipino couple (Ronaldo & Laura)
I was with Metcap Living for over 8 years and in those years it was the best experience I had ever had in Landlord and Tenant relations, the Staff made me feel like part of a family, from Fountain Head to Downtown Dufferin Street it was always a great experience, don't put this company down has Slum Lords has it is the tenants who make it bad. If you call the main lines they are there to help, so please look before you speak and make sure you point the right finger at the right person TENANTS.
