Far investments has got to be the worst management of all time , not only is the building invested with bed bugs and cock roaches .. They are rude and ignorant when asked about the problem saying things like "it's only some units and we fixed the problem but if it happens we can't control that " I applied for an apartment and they denied my acceptance and told me they would only accept me if I paid 6-8. Months rent advance .. I provided the, with first and last plus a security deposit , I have e
xceptional Lanlord reference from my current Lanlord , I do not have credit history but I had 2 people to be my guarantor and they told me no they can't unless I pay 6-8months rent in advance which is ILLEGAL!!!! When I asked to speak to the head manager from far investments the lady told me I can speak to her or the super, when I informed her it was illegal to ask that and why she won't rent to me with my guarantor she then hung up on me .... They also wouldn't let us see the apartment because it was not suitable to view but that they would be renovating it , I took this very unprofessional behaviour not to rent from this company .. You will probably move there , have bed bugs and roaches and they will hang up on you and say it's not our problem. I would not re commend ever renting from Far Investments Inc .

The building is infested with cockroaches and bed bugs. The management never responds until you send out three eork orders. Last time i had to warn to call city for thrm to take an action towsrds rosches... They then sent me a form after three work orders for pest control service. Moreoverz management misplaces things very easily ajd is jot professional at all. I gave a notice on April first in writing to move on June 1st and I never gotna response. Even thiugh I had asked them to call me
if they need anything. Also, i then sent a notice on Aptil 17th stating i am folloeing uo to confirm you acknowledged it.. Very nicely too snd they gave me a bad reference for moving out stating i didnt give a 60 day notice and thay i am an irresponsible tenant. I then confronted them amd they argued their way of calling mr a liar for putting a notice on the 1st. I was like I am sick of living in your cockroach infested buikding amd the fact that you ignired my first notice ajd threw it out - I have no choice but to wait til July 1st now. Also, why would you give me a bad reference when I have always paid rent on time. You are lucky in almost three years I haven't called the city on lack of maintenance in various forms in this building. They denied giving me a bad reference even though they did do that. Moreover, they randomly gave my parking spot in mid January to someone else duplicating people on it. They made me change the spot as i complained someone else was parked there and they said sorry we can't change them now even though its your spot first. It was as if they were favoured and i was not too happy. Id have argued more but i had a death in the family so i didnt feel like it. The second spot had leakages snd was dsmaging my car but they made me deal with it. I was told to go buy a car cover and that they cant do anything. Even upon moving here in 2012 I was given a dirty apartment.. Toilet seat was yellow and in bad shape same with sink, trims had cracks and so did cabinets, cabinets wouldnt close they told me this is how their supposed to be. The exhaust wasnt working well and they told me i am supposed to clean it myself as well ss i eas given the washroom filled with mold and was told me its my responsibility to clean it. Thr iven was also dirty upon move in. The year i movrd in the ac was shut off for the whole summer thry turned it on for two weeks at the end of summer. Its in a bad shape overall. Thr management doesn't care. Also it says no pets allowed but there are pets everyehere and thats fine but they never clean floors snd carpets in this building. Food is also left on floors due to lack of garbage and no care. Also dogs piss on the carpet it stinks a lot of times snd management doesnt do snything either. I have to close my nose crossing my hallway to the aptment. The ceiling is even falling apsrt on my floor.. They dont bother fixing it.

I had bedbugs in my apartment only noticing while I was vacuuming my mattress. I told management about it and they told me what goes on in my apartment does not concern them. I spoke to a second person and they said they would let me know when pest control is around to spray my apartment. I asked how much time would they give me to prepare and they told me when they are spraying someone else's apartment ( because pest control only is called only if there are more than one cases) th
ey will do mine in the same day, they will open the door for them and they will do there job. I told her I have a dog and he couldn't be there for when that was happening and she told me it was to bad then.
My toilet broke once. It took two weeks for them to fix it. I had to use a neighbors bathroom and shower for two weeks. I can go on forever, I did not like this building what so ever and I had to move.

Cockroaches are also very common in this building, When we reported to the management they treated like we brought those cockroaches from some where or we created the in house. We reported several times but they delayed always they said wait until their action team(pest controller) come to this building.
Now think this way..if you have cancer and if you knew that and wait extra 15 days for proper treatment, what will happen to your health. immediate action could resolve the problem at the tim
e we reported but not. and It might not let those cockroaches spreaded out all over other apartments in this building if they took action immediately. Their superabundants (always changes!) are not really behaving well to this building tenants. We have several issues from our neibourhood too.
so our request to the community to take care of us when you read those message from we like people.
reduce those bedbugs/cockroaces/some kind of flies(small sizes!) from this building and let us live healthy and sound...

Found bed bugs. Went to office to report it, they say they will pay for a treatment, but if another treatment is needed tenant has to pay for it, they then proceed to tell you that you WILL require a second treatment. When I asked why I would have to pay for it, they said "well we have never had a bed bug problem before this" I responded with "Well neither have I in any place I have lived in" They said the pest control would come in 5 days. It's pretty ridiculous overall.

On Nov.1, 2009 noticed couple bed bugs under a mattress. Many more unfortunately were hiding in and around the bed frame/ baseboards. Building super didn't look surprised to hear about my problem. I was lucky to get exterminators in 10 days, taking into account that they come to treat the building only once a month.
