We are very committed to reducing our carbon footprint and conserving energy. We regularly use energy efficient light bulbs and do our best to ensure that our properties are in good condition. We recommend that when you replace light bulbs, you also use energy efficient bulbs. Please note that the inexpensive bulbs from some stores, do not last or do not work at all. You may find yourself replacing those bulbs more often, thus, not realizing any savings. You may want to invest in a more expensive and longer lasting bulb. Things like water usage and excessive electrical usage can make utility bills quite high. Any time that there are plumbing issues, like leaks and running toilets, please check our plumbing section in our troubleshooting guide first, as you might be able to resolve a problem yourself or call us immediately. Heating and cooling are also high-energy consumers. Some things you can do to help lower utility costs are turning the heat down slightly at bed-time, as our body temperature drops slightly while we sleep, or turning the heat down a bit when you are not home. The same general guidelines apply to cooling in the summer. Whether you pay your own utilities or if your rent is inclusive, each tenant should be aware and proactive about their energy usage. Please click on the links below for more ideas on how to manage your energy consumption.

Payment is due by the 1st of each month and if you are not able to pay in full on the 1st, we expect to be notified of that in advance. Communication is critical so please call and speak to us about your situation so we can work something out that is amicable for both of us.
There will be a $25.00 late fee charged for any payments received after the due date. We issue N4 eviction notices to anyone who has not paid in full on the first of the month. If you receive an N4 keep in mind that this is the beginning of the eviction process. Once you have paid your rent, we can no longer proceed. We prefer to work with our tenants to avoid eviction. If you believe you have received an N4 in error, please contact us and we will investigate to see if your payment has been properly processed. In some cases we need more information to process your payment. It only takes a phone call to resolve these situations.
All tenants whose payments are returned as NSF (non-sufficient funds) by their banking institution will be subject to a $25.00 administration fee. Once 2 NSF cheques have been received alternate arrangements for payment will need to be made as personal cheques will no longer be accepted.
Please note that upon move-in you must pay in cash for your agreed upon first and last month rent. Once you have moved in, the following payment types are acceptable:
WE CAN NO LONGER ACCEPT CASH DEPOSITED DIRECTLY TO OUR ACCOUNT. PLEASE CHOOSE ONE OF THE OPTIONS LISTED BELOW.
