"About Us" really means "about me".
I've been living in Vancouver for the past 20 years. I know that finding Vancouver apartments for rent is a challenge. I've always been a renter so I know what it's like. I've lived in apartments in various areas including North Vancouver and the West End of Vancouver. If you're looking for apartments to rent in Vancouver these days, there is a good chance you will want to consider the West End. It's where I've been living for years and yes, you can raise a family here just fine thank you very much.
One of the big problems when it comes to renting apartments in Vancouver is a lack of information. A lack of knowledge on both the renters and the landlords. Never assume that what you're being told it truthful or factual. A landlord may not be intending to mislead you. They simp ly may be incorrect about what they are telling you.
My motto is: "Arm yourself with knowledge". In other words, know your rights because you have plenty of them as a apartment renter in Vancouver. As an apartment renter there will be times when you must push back.
Back in the day, before the Liberal government reformed the Tenancy Act, it was a rather simply process when disputing rent increases. As a result, when that yearly rent increase hit my mailbox, I proceeded to the Tenancy branch and filed to dispute the rent increase. As a result I wasn't popular with my landlords, but I was simply doing what I was entitled to do. The apartment owner had to prove and justify their rent increases. Needless to say I never left a hearing disappointed. It was empowering to know that my rights as a renter were heard and supported. Landlords do have more power in terms of rent increases and understandably, they use those maximum limits for increasing your rent.
Why did I launch this website?
I'm passionate about the Vancouver apartments scene. More specifically, I'm passionate about renters knowing their rights. As mentioned above, I've been in the apartment rental game for a long time. I can't say that all landlords are out to get you, but if you get in an apartment with a bad landlord your life can be miserable. On the other hand I've had some really great landlords who I will say hi to when I see them on the street.
So more specifically I launched this website so you, as a person looking for Vancouver apartments for rent, have all the resources and information in one place. If there is a apartment related news release or organization I will let you know about it and provide you with the contact information.
In addition I hope to lessen your stress when it comes to your searching for Vancouver apartments. One website that hopefully provides you with everything you need as you seek out Vancouver apartments for rent.
