We informed the landlord that we could not live like this anymore and he was very understanding. We are moving for May 1 and he will not have new tenants moving in. He says that he will be evicting the neighbouring tenants in the summer, gutting the building, and putting in bachelor apartments. .

If you are looking in to this apartment and it is brand new and sometime in fall 2011 or after, safe to say that he has done a thorough job of getting rid of the problem, but if it is before that time then BEWARE. If it is a two bedroom apartment that is run down then he did not do the renovations above mentioned and is simply moving on to the next victim. DO NOT rent this apartment unless it is newly renovated and perhaps even ask that it be inspected by a PCO and attend the inspection if you are seriously considering even the renovated unit.
