Terrible Apartments
Terrible apartments, even worse tenants.
Filthy building, broken beer bottle on the floor in hallway for 2 weeks and counting, broken main door every week, hot water shuts off every 2 days during winter, elevators work when they feel like it, laundry machines break down regularly, laundry card reader died and took over a month to be fixed... Hallway windows sealed shut with screws.. not sure if that is even legal. Do not rent this crap even if they pay you to live there. If I could give this apartment complex negative stars I would.

NO CARE FOR HUMAN LIFE AND WELL BEING
Hello, I would just like to apologize in advance if my review seems overly frustrated maybe after you read it you will be equally as frustrated as I am. I signed my tenancy agreement around the 9th of september 2011 to move in on the 1st of September 2011 at 35 Fountainhead. Even though they had my first and last months cheque since August 15th 2011. However they told me I could not move in till after the 1st of september on the first of september becaus the apartment was not ready, the flooring had not been done, painting had not been done, the tap was broken, they had not sprayed for roaches, bed bugs or mice and trust me when I tell you that it is over run with all 3. Anyway eventually in mid October yes Mid october I moved in, had to take all the costs of keeping my new furniture which was delivered in september had to keep things in storage by friends etc.. Ended up having cable and internet installation being delayed and me being charged penalties etc.. Eventually Metcap still charged me for september had to fight them for several months to get them to agree that my occupancy really started mid October by no fault of my own and they tried to ruin my credit. Then I had issues with them illegally entering the apartment, they would give you notice for one day that pest control or other maintenance or contractors would come, then they would come another day, having supplied no new notice and just enter your apartment. I have woken up to find men and yes i am a single 22 year old female living alone, in my apartment and when I would ask them to leave, to let me get dressed, they would say we need to make sure you are ready for whatever treatment they planned to do that day or the next. anyways after having my privacy and rights ignored so many times i never complained.

My next issue is with the state of the smell in their cupboards and in their kitchen and bathroom I guess with all the dead roaches and stuff it caused it to stink. eventually I bought a pantry and I no longer put any of my things in their kitchen cupboards.Other issues like the hot water not working properly during winter, the heat being turned off etc are just normal everyday issues you get with this Building.

Finally the straw that has broken the camels (MY) back. On Monday 29th April 2013, i was given notice that there would be pest control being done for that well in advance which is out of their usual behavior. So i had previously prearranged plans to leave for a few days because what ever chemical they put down causes me to itch and also they say you should not be in the room for 4-24 hours. So after Pest control came to my apartment I left. Video cameras will show that I sat in the lobby for over 2 hours waiting on my ride and did not come back until Thursday May 2nd Morning. When I returned to my apartment it was in disarray, there was no notice on my door, it smelled like a toilet. as i walked in i tripped, the reason was because the wooden tiles i left in place were now jutting up or were simply off the ground. I later came to hear 2 stories about what happened. The first was that there was an ongoing leak from the 23rd floor down to my floor that resulted in damage to my property. the second story after i asked about compensation for loss of my clothing, speakers, laptop,and furniture was that there was an issue in my bathroom that the toilet piping suddenly burst after not being used for an entire day that resulted in it flooding my apartment. Now due to all the flooring and tiles being up i attempted to clean my apartment but as it stands its not livable. I almost fell multiple times, have splinters stuck in my foot, my eyes, nose, lips throat and skin is burning and itching me from so chemical and the apartment just smells like a toilet for $835, I expected better treatment and now that I am saying,that due to the these living conditions and no one has even attempted to move me into another apartment or get a cleaning company or anything to address these issues I am having. I told them I am moving out immediately and I am also refusing to pay rent because I can not live there at the moment. My advice STAY AWAY FROM ANY PROPERTY OWNED OR RUN BY METCAP, THEIR CUSTOMER SERVICE AS WELL AS THEIR LACK OF CARE AND CONSIDERATION FOR THEIR RENTERS LIFE AND WELLBEING is what makes me say that they are slumlords, the living conditions versus the amount of money in rent you are expected to pay is cruel and unusual.

You are right as I am going through nothing but bullshit with these assholes,the place stinks,bugs everywhere and 5 months after I moved in I still had dishwaser water coming up through my sink,these people that run MetCap are nothing more then SLUM LORDS

Sub-human company to deal with.
We were almost a week late on the rent (each of us thought the other had paid it - silly, I know, but these things do happen) and we got a notice of their intent to evict us in the mail. Lovely people! Really? Not even a warning first? We have lived in this building for well over a decade, that is a nice way to treat long-term tenants. What a way to do business. This building has and will continue to go downhill with these acknowledged slumlords as the "management". Stay far, far away from Metcap.

Getting them to do the reno's before I sign a lease and move in at 317 Parklawn
I promise that I will write a review once I am fully moved in.

The place I am moving into is at such a great location and the super told me that the cleanup wasn't final and will be done before my move in date. To say the least, I wasn't impressed with what I saw, but knowing the competition for apartments and the usual lengthy application process to get one, even a slum can get filled pretty quickly, owners and operators know this fact very well and many of them use this fact to take shortcuts on their reno's. I also knew very well that some managers will not want to keep a tenant who complains about the condition of their dwelling. Making that complaint to the upper management of Metcap and backing it up with pictures to me was very scary, but I also knew that I didn't want to move into an unclean, pre-damaged and bug infested apartment.

5 days before move in. The place looks decently clean at first glance. Upon further inspection, there are dead and a couple of live roaches on the window seals, I was watching a couple of em scurrying about where heating unit is. The bathroom has dirty, discolored tiles and grouting, floorboards around the toilet were exposed up to an inch around as if it was made for a larger toilet exposing the wood to moisture and eventual rot is definately not good, the whole place was still dirty with sawdust, there was still major damage to one of the under-sink cabinet floorboards, there is broken glass from a broken mirror in the closet, the deadbolt on my apartment has no screws in it and the garage has a broken lock. the garage had about a cm or so of filth and sharp objects in it ready to flatten my tires.

So, I fired off this angry letter to upper management mentioning all of the above and told them that having run a familly motel business for 20 years in the past, I would have been deeply ashamed to rent out rooms in the condition that I see with these apartments. I also told them that I suspect that they are taking shortcuts in their reno's because they know they're unit will be rented regardless and that I would rather lose the apartment than move into one in that condition. Now is my move in date and To my surprise, They seem to genuinely want to make the repairs I asked for, today is date where the apartment is officially mine. In the end, which would you rather have, a long term tenant who doesn't just move out at the end of his or her lease, or one who will stay for several years. Luckilly, I didn't lose the apartment as I thought might happen, The reply was positive and immediate, they apologized to me for the shoddy workmanship and the state of my apartment, they said the repairs and clean up will be done and told also me they will set a higher standard in their reno's. Today being the first day I will make my inspection of the reno's. I graded them a little higher than I should, I am hoping they are being genuinely sincere in wanting to do well by their renters.

Wish me luck.

To be continued.

Looking forward to hearing how it goes.
Comment by Coolcustomer on Apr 09, 2013
we've identified bed bugs in our apartment, the wife is freaked out, we were assured that the place will be treated by some guys called magic pest control, we also found out that the heat radiators are so old that they can leak at any time. There are alot of problems with this place. Not good at all.
Comment by stm on May 30, 2013
Hi Coolcustomer,

I'm thinking of renting the ground floor apartment in this unit 317 Park Lawn, read your review & a little freaked out right now about the bedbugs. I was wondering if the situation has improved since u moved in & if there are still bed bugs and roaches in your unit. Also what floor are u on? I wouldn't be looking at this place if I didn't have to...everything else around that area seems worse! Pls advice & thx.

DISGUSTING!
I can't even give this company a star, it is awful! I pulled the fire alarm by accident then was charged $300!! after the manager would say I didn't pay and take money from me and use it for her self! MetCRAP is the worst company to ever rent from it is filled with cockroaches and bedbugs I live in 1276 Islington Ave it is truly the worst building ever I have white black, and gray roaches in my house the toilet is filled with roaches I do not reccomend this company to anyone! The manager does nothing at all just brings people to clean the roaches away but what I noticed is that they always some how bring more roaches back its nasty here is a picture of the roaches I have all over my suit- http://www.google.ca/imgres?imgurl=http://www.shaharin.com/roaches/PAm-white.jpg&imgrefurl=http://thestudyofracialism.org/viewtopic.php?f=8&t=5223&h=330&w=500&sz=41&tbnid=YmZ99PfMTFelCM:&tbnh=90&tbnw=136&zoom=1&usg=__F3Y9aK-IPLDoe5Fgk9mzSvqZB9k=&docid=j4CGHD4z_Z7LMM&hl=en&sa=X&ei=ZfdxUOTmD4-D0QHslYC4Dw&ved=0CDUQ9QEwAg&dur=326 I seriously want to move but I can't find anywhere to go!

METCAP MUST HAVE SHARES WITH MAGICAL PEST CONTROL BECAUSE THEY WON'T CHANGE PEST CONTROL COMPANY AND THEY ARE HERE IN THIS BUILDING ON A DAILY BASIS. AS PER THE HEALTH DEPT THEY ARE EVEN DOING IT PROPERLY. FOR ROACHES THEY DON'T USE THE RIGHT STUFF BROWN GEL CRAP THAT DOESN'T WORK. AS FOR THE BEDBUGS THEY ARE TO VACUUM BEFORE AND AFTER DOING THE POWDER AND THEY TELL YOU ITS YOUR JOB BUT ITS THERE'S THEY DON'T CARE. I HAD TO CALL THE HEALTH DEPT ON THEM TWICE AND ORDERS WERE ISSUED TO METCAP. PROPERTY MANGER AND VP OF MAGICAL ARE VERY WELL KNOWN AT THE HEALTH DEPT ALL I DID WAS GIVE MY NAME AND ADDRESS THE HEALTH DEPT TOLD ME EVERYTHING ELSE BEFORE I EVEN GOT A CHANCE TOO. VERY WELL KNOWN IN THE HEALTH DEPT MET CAP IS

Good supers but constant elevator and water pipe shut downs
Pros: efficient and hardworking supers who seem to really care about keeping the building clean
Landscaped grounds
Large windows, lots of light
Large apartments
Steps from Don Mills, Fairview Mall and 24 hr Foodland
Decent tenants, mostly working families and generally quiet ( at least on my floor)
Cons: one of three elevators is out of service on an almost monthly basis and for some reason when the elevators are not use they're all on the top floor, not the lobby floor, which makes no sense.
There are constant water pipe repairs. In the two years I have been here the water has been shut off no less than 12 times which occasionally results in no hot water for several hours after the water is back on, not fun during winter.
Units need a facelift. My kitchen cabinet shelves are loose and I'm afraid to stack plates on them. The kitchen floor laminate looks like its been there since the building was built and no amount of floor cleaners or polish can make it look anything but old and stepped on for 50+ yrs. the countertop is literally worn in several places and there's mold behind the sink faucet.
Tenants don't control the heaters. That's fine if you live on the bottom floors but heat rises and on the 14th floor where I am it's like an oven in winter. My only method to turning the heat down is leaving the windows open, so the money metcap spends on the heat for my apartment is literally going out the window.

It's one of the better apartment buildings for cleanliness and general appearance and in a good location. If you don't mind units that look run down I would recommend it. However I would not recommend it if you are tired of living in post WWII apartments with mauve shower tiles and scratched up parkay floors, but then I've just described every other apartment in the city.

I have never seen such worst supervisors that we got at Metcap Apts 110 Parkway Forest Drive. There is absolutely no courtesy or even basis manners to talk to customers.

Especially Maria, she sounded horrible. I don't understand how can Metcap hire such stupid people, I would never recommend anyone in my lifetime to look for rentals in this community.

Metcap building managers are very rude
I have never had such a bad experience in my life as a tenant. I have rented townhouses in the york mills region for 4 years before I moved here.

1) The building manager Ian (for 32-50 Forest Manor Road) has no courtesy. He comes in our house anytime he pleases (even in our absence) although by law he is required to give a 24 hrs notice before he does so. Although we have asked him a bazillion times to ask permission before entry, such things dont get into his head.

2) The whole townhouse is poorly managed. We once had a major leak in our washroom and when we called his plumber from Metcap to correct it, he replied "to put a bucket underneath and wait till the next week". Plus, Metcap employs people who have no manners. This same person behaved very rudely with my mom.

The amount of frustation I have with Metcap is no measurable. They are greedy, money hungry, rude and lacking total sense of cusotmer skills.

Your supers actions are completely illegal. Go to tribunal, if that doesn't work go to the media.

Bad Experience
On the date when I was supposed to move in at 35 Fountainhead Rd in North York the place was not cleaned, neither was the appliances and the balcony was covered in pigeons mess.The cheque I paid for the apartment was deposited to my account and up to a week after the ist of the month the place was not ready. I had to contact management before the place was cleaned.
The first day I moved in I developed health problems due to traffic noise which enters through the glass which is at he front of the apartment.The glass is thin and seem to be made of plastic material and is thin and flexible. It is certainly not sound proof. Although the apartment is about 50 metres from Finch Ave.when a bus or truck passes the noise which comes into the apartment deafen the ears.I complained to customer service and they say that the building is not owned by metcap so they cannot do modifications to the building. I also went to the Rental Office and was told that the property manager controls the budget so he is the one to talk to.

When I spoke to the property manager he asked me if I did not see Finch Ave when I came to look at the department. I told him that I honestly did not realize that it was so close to Finch Ave because the addressis 35 Fountainhead Rd. I asked him if he could relocate me to a quieter appointment but he says no because a lot of students live in the complex and I would soon br complaining about noisy neighbours. He suggested that I should leave and I would have to bear some of the cost.

I have only been here about a month and there have been no hot water for about a total of three times.

I had to spend $840.00 on drapes to help block out the noise to the apartment.My ears have been ringing since I have moved in and have been to several doctors.My doctor and others have told me to move because The problem started about three hours after I moved in.They seem to have a high turn over of tenants so I would not recommend them.

Terrible Management Company
I've been living at 60 Tyndall Avenue in Toronto since October 2011. Having lived in rentals starting 6 years ago in University this company has been far and above the worst to deal with in my personal experience. From the first day my room mate and myself moved in the company failed to live up to its obligations never apologizing or offering any form of compensation.

To start, when I moved in I spent the night in the dark and cold. Apparently they hadn't bothered to switch on the power to the unit. I inquired about the heat while I was speaking to the building manager the next day. They informed me that there was no heat nor would there be for a full 6 weeks (which would mean mid-November) due to a defective boiler part in the radiant heating system. The contract I signed just weeks prior to moving in stated that landlord would provide heat at no cost to me or my room mate. I therefore requested that the manager provide me with unit heaters and pay my electricity bill until the problem was resolved.

The manager said she had contacted Metcap and they wouldn't pay any part of my electric bill. I received a call from Metcap. While they claimed to be working on the problem they informed me they would not pay the additional charge which would be incurred on my electric bill if I used unit heaters. I went for a full week without heat and no resolution was proposed by MetCap. Doing some research I found that MetCap was not only violating their contract with me, they were also violating the Toronto heating bylaw. I contacted 311 and the next day an inspector came to the building and the heating issue "magically" resolved itself. Apparently they must have gotten the part that day because the heat came back on the day the City Inspector spoke to them.

But this wasn't the end of my troubles with MetCap. My room mate owns a car and he was promised a parking stall in the building's underground garage. Upon moving in he was informed that the garage was being renovated and he would have to park outside (in a pretty shady neighbourhood). Another promise broken by MetCap with no compensation not even an apology.

The heating issue seemed to be taken care of for the winter. However, this April the heat was turned off and back on sporadically. It only seemed to happen when it was warm during the day. The heat, however, was left off overnight and for several days in a row. I tried multiple times to contact my landlord concerning this. I left messages on their phone which they never replied to and tried to find them at their office which was always closed when I came home from work. I contacted MetCap and the City again concerning this. MetCap told me there had been maintenance on the heating system and it had been left off by mistake. Apparently this "maintenance" only happened when it was warm outside and they "forgot" to turn it back on multiple times. MetCap also didn't think it was worth informing the tenants about the maintenance by posting information in the lobby like they had done with every other type of maintenance. Heat in Canada is really just a luxury afterall.

Recently, my room mate had gone away on a business trip and forgotten to give the landlord a post-dated cheque. He was 4 days late giving them rent. Instead of taking the elevator up to talk to him or myself or calling either of us on the phone they put a legal notice in our mailbox telling us we would be evicted if we didn't pay in 20 days. I didn't get this notice until a month later since I rarely check my mailbox, however, by that time we had already paid a long time before. I felt this harassment is due to the fact we complained about the heat and their complete disregard for the law or the health/comfort of the building's occupants. We both would have given the building manager post-dated cheques, however, given that they have broken the law and our tenancy agreement on multiple occasions providing them with a year's worth of rent cheques seemed like a bad idea.

In conclusion if you want to live in a building owned by a company that violates your tenancy agreement and the law to save a few bucks, doesn't provide essential services (such as heat and hot water) to its tenants and tries to evict you when you complain choose a MetCap property.

P.S. I only gave MetCap 1/2 of a star because 0 stars or negative stars wasn't an option.

Worst Management
Management : don't know how to behave with tenets , no respect what so ever , teat you like a beggar , office is closed most of the time . I am sure you will bang your head against the wall thinking why you rented in this complex.

Appartment : 45 year old one , things brake quite often, water shut off out proper notice is the Big problem , if you want to ask management why water is shut down they will show you a notice that is stick at 1 st ans ground floor .

Parking : You need to be careful where you park and how you park

i can give 1/2 out of 5 for this apartment as a tenet living here almost one year .

You need to decide what you want.

MetCap Sucks
Have lived at the Pall Mal for over ten years. MetCap took over about 3 years ago. At least 8 different super's in that time. I can honestly say they are the worst management company I've ever experienced. They spend thousands on the landscaping but won't do the most basic repairs. Stay away!!!
Comment by chewy on Jan 31, 2013
Speaking as a former super , met cap pays crap, expects you to do all the work (including the property managers job) they don't care that you have to live with all the tenants also. They really try to force them out. So please be nice to the good supers they are trying their best.

Disgusting company
We have lived in our building at 106 Goodwood Park for over 30 years, never had a problem, people were nice, and there was maybe 5 times the superintendents ever had to come into our apartment.

We are good tenants, we always pay our rent, we never make requests, we always pay by cheque, and we are never late with the rent. We understand the owner has a right to make a return on his or her property, we don't mind rent increases. We are as fair as can be for tenants and we NEVER complain.

The last 5 years since MetCap was the property management company, this place has turned into hell. Human urine and excrement in the stairs and elevators, cockroaches roaming the hallways, and bedbugs galore.

Since MetCap came almost everyone has moved out. Rents have actually DECREASED (I wonder why). This place is now filled with drifters, ex-cons, and the worst society has to offer. Noise complaints ignored, police here every other day, Sherrif's notices for evictions commonplace, I could go on and on.

In a MetCap building there is no point getting to know the "Resident Managers" as they never stay more than 3 months. They also LOVE coming into your apartment without notice and they LOVE doing inspections every month. You truly have no privacy at all in a MetCap building. It is a SHAME I have to move out of here because of the deteriorating conditions.

I have NEVER hated a company as much as I hate MetCap and I truly wish nothing but the worst for them.

Do yourself the favour and DO NOT rent from them. I am not an "angry" tenant. If anyone in the end does rent from them in the end, you WILL regret it. Nobody, I mean NOBODY likes them.

130 GH
130 George Henry used to be a very good building when CF owned it when it was built to about the mid 1980's! It was the "in building" at that time.

I remember living in it as a kid. My parents moved because after it was sold (a few times) it was cheaper to pay a mortgage and hydro etc - then to pay this rent!

If you do decide to buy a condo here please check out the area a few times! It was a great area, however with more high rises traffic is bad during rush hour!

the Property Manager for Parkway Forest Community is rude and had no experience to deal with tenants.very poor customer service.choose any other landlord,not Met Cap.they need the rent to be paid on time,but they do not care about tenants.

STAY AWAY! It's for your own good!
Terrible management! They rennovated to make the common areas of the building look good, but the truth is, that MetCap staff go out of their way to avoid doing repairs and actually caring for 1276 Islington Ave. This place is infested with ROACHES and BEDBUGS. Infact the bedbugs are so bad, that I see the bug guy coming in weekly to spray (they use the gel for roaches, not spray). Even then, trying to get management to deal with the problem - they blame it on you, saying it wasn't a problem before.

If you want to give up all your belongings when you move here, deal with a lack of repairs, and face mean and nasty office staff... move on in. This place is a nightmare.
Comment by vramkiss on Aug 09, 2010
My Husband and I moved here. We are dealing with an enormous amount of stress from DAY 1 of moving. Roaches are now a problem and they are doing nothing about it. BEDBUGS? I am moving if I even see ONE bedbug. I had one experience with bedbugs and I had scars on my body for an entire year! NO WAY! DO not move here if you can!

110 parkway forest dr
i would like to say the team from 110 PF drive is professional and efficient. and building is well managed especially for an old building. i have been here for over a year now.

i have also lived in 130 GH blvd for about 3 years between 2004 - 2007, that building wasn't managed as properly, but now that they would be demolishing it for condominium development, i suppose its understandable.

Horrid
For a company that is supposed to be "managing" something, they are doing an awful job. Buildings are in terrible condition, every repair or maintenance done is done in the cheapest, quickest, and least caring way possible. If something broke (e.g. rotten walls collapsing in the shower, mold on walls and floors, chipped or broken windows) you better look into ways of fixing it yourself because the company will take their sweet time while you continue paying for horrible conditions.

Ask the people employed there what qualifications they have, chances are at least half didn't finish high school. If you live in a MetCap building you already know that there's a new couple of managers and superintendents every few months. Why do you think that is? Because the company cares as little about its employees as it does about the tenants.

Elevators are broken days upon days without repair, why? There are pools of urine on stairways, why? Rodents, cockroaches... why? money.

For a company that is supposed to be "managing" something, they are doing an awful job. Buildings are in terrible condition, every repair or maintenance done is done in the cheapest, quickest, and least caring way possible. If something broke (e.g. rotten walls collapsing in the shower, mold on walls and floors, chipped or broken windows) you better look into ways of fixing it yourself because the company will take their sweet time while you continue paying for horrible conditions.

Ask the people employed there what qualifications they have, chances are at least half didn't finish high school. If you live in a MetCap building you already know that there's a new couple of managers and superintendents every few months. Why do you think that is? Because the company cares as little about its employees as it does about the tenants.

Elevators are broken days upon days without repair, why? There are pools of urine on stairways, why? Rodents, cockroaches... why? money.

don't ever think about moving into a building by METCAP
half a star but there should be NO star for this building. I live in 125 parkway forest and been itching to move out of here but we are in a 1 year contract.

building is poorly managed. the building manager isn't much help. we came home one night with the apartment smelling like something's burning, turned out there was a short in the circuit breaker.we complained about it to elizabeth (the building manager); she was even angry because according to her, we were overloading it. How can that be when we don't even any appliance in the apartment. My mother in law had to complain everyday before they even did something.

avoid MetCap
I have nothing good to say about MetCap. They are hungry for your money - they don't care about people, they care about how much of your money they've taken.

Avoid this company at all costs. It has been a headache since day one, and I know many tenants with similar experiences here.

Round here, the tenants refer to the company as Met Crap.

AVOID METCAP
MetCap is a very bad property management company, they staff is unqualified, buildings are in bad shape, maintenance requests are usually ignored. They do not return deposits. The buildings are full of bedbugs and cockroaches.

If you thinking about moving in to one of buildings managed by MetCap. Do yourself a favor. ASK tenants of the building, about living there.
