Nacel Properties Ltd. — Residence at 423 E. 10th. Ave.
I moved into this building in the summer time and out less than 6 months later. The day I was moving in water started leaking through the walls in the kitchen. The landlord never properly addressed the situation stating it was a pipe that burst and that was it. Nothing in the suite was looked at to determine the amount of mold the property contained. The second day in the building I met a young father who was dumping all of his belonging and quite aggrivated at having bed bugs in his new apartment. His wife and young daughter were also at risk. The apartment was not properly cleaned or they would have known this. He had to destroy most belongings. This is not the only reported case of bed bugs in this apartment building. I arrived home on several occasions to find the front door unlocked. It remained in this condition for the entire 6 months I lived there. Meanwhile suites were being broken into and the Landlord, Gina did nothing to address this with the tenants. Needless to say this is not a friendly building to live in. Mail is stolen and urine in the elevators. Drugs are rampant in the building. How these people stay in business accepting tenant such as these I'll never know. I was convinced to go on a Direct Withdrawl system of paying the rent which was fine until the Landlord didn't properly cancel the request at the bank. I wound up paying a months rent there and therefore bouncing my rent check at my currect residence. I took 10 days for them to return my money in the form of a check. I was originally told the funds would just be returned to my account by the Landlord. She gave me the run around for a week and said they would pay none of my incured costs. Save yourself some heart-ache and don't move into this building at 423 East 10th Ave. in Vancouver, B.C. and do not rent in a building without checking the bedbugregistry.com or any building "maintained" by Nacel Properties Ltd.
