No bedbugs noticed on the 10th floor but tons of cockroaches.

I found a single bedbug when sitting on my couch. I didnt look like it had recently fed. This apartment building is dirty and poorly maintained. I found this bedbug a couple days after there were "fire inspections" completed in the units without proper written notification.

Currently live in this building and do not have any bed bugs...BUT...have seen them in the hallway and have been able to prevent them from entering my own apartment by putting 2x4 wood planks at the entrance of my door and sealing the gaps with rubber. So, even though I know some of the neighbors have bedbugs, especially on the lower floors, it's not that bad.
Bad thing is, the building is absolutely filthy and has been this way for the years I've lived here. The water is shut off "almost" ev
ery 2nd week for for some reason and they never painted my apartment after coming in and plastering all the little cracks in the wall. So, after so many years, I still have plaster in let's see...something like 20 points in my walls and the gross paint that they were supposed to re-paint after I moved in.
Good news is, they have new superintendents as of around 2 months ago. The old one "Jorge" actually busted in on me once when I was sleeping and half naked. Fucking guy wouldn't even give me 10 seconds to put my clothes on as the fire inspector guy was laughing. Service is shit...what service? Whole building is filthy and disgusting...there are homeless people sleeping in the underground parking every 3rd or 4th night...and now they even put motion detectors in the underground parking so that when you go there, it's pitch black, providing lots of private spaces for the homeless men and drug addicts to do their shit next to the cars. It's a goddamn slum if I've ever seen one. Good news is...the rent is cheap...which makes it all worth it. LOL
I live here currently. Rather, I moved in recently and totally regret it.
To the person who said something like "those who expect top service and low rent" should look elsewhere, how about "any service"? Any? AT ALL?!!
Your current landlady, who I'm fairly certain was lobotimized due to her complete inability to have a dialogue of any sort, does not answer any questions or resolve any tenant issues - ever. That's not charity work, it's her fucking job. I might pay low rent but I still pay
rent and it's illegal to be a slum lord.
Hidden fees - let's talk about those now. Read the fine print before moving in here. I wish I had. There's an administrative fee, which I'm going to discus with a lawyer, that they state they will charge you should you ever wish to move out. $500. Yep. A fee to move out.
Bed bugs? Not in my experience but BEETLES yes!
My neighbour is a drug dealer too. So that's been awesome to find out. I love waking up at 3am to screams and things breaking and smashing next door. It smells like weed all damn day, I hate being home because it gives me a headache when my neighbour goes on one of his drug binges.
Don't move here. It's the fucking Hotel California.
I lived in one of their apartments at 70 Spadina for six years, we had the odd boiler failure in winter or other such mishaps but they were fixed within reasonable time and considering the low rent we paid it was OK and well situated downtown. I know people who have been living there for 40 years, so it can´t be that bad. The Wynns are nice people and are in business, not charity work, so those who want top service and apartments and low rents as well will never be satisfied, you gotta be r
easonable in your expèctations... I live now in South America but I still visit the Wynns in Dupont St. when I come to Toronto, I´ve got nice memories of my time living at 70 Spadina.
ps - For those who say that this is because the
Wynns are latinos, and favour such, that's wrong,
they're jewish and work hard for their money,
like all jews I know.
I used to live in #110 in 70 Spadina Road. Four months after I moved into the unit(January 2008). My neighbor(#108) informed me that she has bedbug problem and had been sprayed. A week later, I found bedbug in my unit. They sprayed my unit. But the bedbugs came back and they sprayed me and neighbors on my both sides(#108p) two more times. However, the bedbug kept returning and in order to get out of my lease, I had to file a report with the tenant board regarding the management company(
the Wynn family group). Before I moved out, I still kept finding bedbugs in my room.
