We've all dealt with a shitty landlord at one point or another while renting an apartment in Montreal. The possibilities for a bad landlord are endless:
Maybe they're incredibly foreign, and speak little to no French/English, thus making getting your toilet fixed a whole process. Maybe they hate all noise, and threaten to call the cops when you play some tunes past 9pm. Maybe they're just a straight up asshole and just live to make your life miserable.
Whatever the reason, never get stuck with another crappy landlord with this handy website: ShouldYouRent.com
ShouldYouRent.com is a community-based website all about sharing unbiased information regarding properties and the people who own them. We all know how nice landlords try to make themselves and they're property seem when you're checking it out, but that can drastically change once you sign the lease.
Help out your fellow citizens and head to ShouldYouRent.com and give the real lowdown on your previous apartment. If you're skeptical about a place, just plug in the address and see what past tenants had to say. Perfect for those a little wary about where they might be moving to come July 1st.
