I have lived in this building through the bed bug infestation through the summer of 2010, having gone through court for being lied to about a bed bug infestation. I won the case. I've watched the property manager lie to new tenants about bed bug problems. The bugs are back twice as bad. The property manager of the building quit because he/she couldn't lie to people any more for Skyline Property Management. He/she was offered a unit to continue living in which is heavily infested. He/She is torn
to pieces of the dirty offer from her boss Joanne Fisher, Regional manager. University students, college students, elderly people, families with young children live here and can't afford to move right now. The bugs are back with a vengeance. Three times worse and hungry. I've sealed off my unit with caulking and duct tape. I pray that this will help until I can find affordable housing.
I also live at this address. I had been infested due to neighbours not taking care of business, and CERTAIN people REFUSING to be sprayed and/or inspected. I am really upset about the remarks made about the management, and know for a fact that not all of what has been written is true. Every time I had a problem, the management took care of it within days, and because of their actions, I have been bed bug free for quite some time. This is just the crazy rantings of someone who doesn't have th
e whole story, and who feels the need to fabricate information, and spread gossip. If I were you, I wouldn't believe everything I hear. Take the time to talk to management because they have been nothing but helpful, proactive and efficient in dealing with this matter. People who have nothing better to do than sit and complain and cause problems should keep their opinions to themselves unless they know the whole truth! To the management, I think you have done a GREAT job in handling something that has been deemed a NATIONAL EPIDEMIC. If you don't know what that means, it means that it's a Canada wide problem, and that there's not much that can be done about it. Unless of course Canada allows the use of DDT that was outlawed years ago due to irresponsible usage.
In rebuttle of that scathing posting. I am also a resident of this building. The Management Company as well as the manager of the building are doing thier very best to erradicate this. It's people who A: don't report the problem till it's bad, and B: arn't fully ready, or improperly prepared. I was ready for the full building inspection and DON'T have bed bugs. As far as RUMOR goes, only 4 unit's had them. Grow up. This company is excellent, and I for one Thank them, for working so hard and dill
I have been infested with bed bugs in August, 2010 in an 11 story building with 60 units. The occupants directly above me have been infested for over one year and had over 11 treatments from a pest control company. The occupant directly below me has been infested for one year and had 3 treatments. When I reported that my son was getting bites, the resident manager did not offer any information of the possibility of bed bugs. When I received bites I asked the resident manager if there were bed bu
gs in the building and she stated that it was just a rumor. After conducting my own investigation I have found other units recently infested. The property manager stated that managers were not obligated to inform occupants of a bed bug infestation unless they were asked directly as which point they were legally obligated to reveal such information. A mandatory inspection was conducted. An occupant directly asked the resident manager if there were bed bugs on her floor. The resident manager said that there was no problem. The occupant asked a second time after I informed her that her neighbor directly beside her has been infested for one year and she received the same response. Notices were posted in the building to tell occupants to keep bulk items in their units until an arrangement could be made for a bulk pick up from the city. This would take up to two weeks. I questioned the resident manager of the possibility of infecting other units if people were keeping infested items in their unit. She responded that she was acting on orders from her managers. I have thrown out items and asked for compensation. I received a notice to be evicted. I've filed an application to be compensated for my loses. Had I been informed of the infestations over a year ago I would have had the opportunity to protect myself, my family and my belongings. I view the property managers as deliberately and carelessly negligent. I view them as contributors to the bed bug epidemic. I reside at 200 Park Street South, Hamilton, Ontario Canada.
