EDITORS’ NOTES

w

hen it comes to rental accommodations, it’s important to be as diligent as possible to make sure you have a good experience from start to finish. If possible, speak to current tenants and ask about their experience. If you’re shown a model, ask to view the actual suite where you’ll be living so you can check out the view and get a sense of exactly what you’re getting beforehand so there are no surprises. While you’re renting, know your rights. Tenants are not responsible for normal wear and tear on the premises during the tenancy. The landlord is responsible for general upkeep, including wear and tear. You should be asked to fill out an Inspection Worksheet when you move in, which the landlord will sign. This is an important document to keep on hand for moving day. Consider taking photographs if there are damaged areas, or bring a video camera if you have one and tape the inspection. A little diligence now ensures peace of mind for later.

ou’ve got the reno bug. I know, it sounds like fun. A new bathroom vanity, deep mocha hardwood flooring. But you can’t. You rent. You’re stuck reading all of these great décor magazines with no way to express your inner interior decorator! I’ve got two things to say: 1) You’ll never truly appreciate how lucky you are that you don’t have to live through a renovation. It’s hard to believe, but the experience of dirt, dust and disruption really does take away from the enjoyment of the final outcome. 2) Think outside the big beige box. Sure, you may not be able to rip up floors – but there are reams of products out there that will do the trick. Floating floors – they click together and are temporary – if you move you can even take them with you to your new home and reconfigure them there! Or go with a rug or hallway runner. Since they’re not permanent you can be more daring, go with colour, pattern or texture that can easily be changed as something new in your décor mag strikes a chord. You can’t tear out that bathroom vanity, but you can spend that extra money in changing up the hardware and on really amazing accessories. If you need more storage, find a chrome trolley, the ones on casters are totally on trend. They offer great storage capacity and be adapted for use in the office, bedroom or kitchen when you want to change things up. Sometimes it’s just easier to move when there’s a lot you want to change about your space. With Renters Guide in hand you’ll find that perfect place. Our magazine and website, TheRentersGuide.ca, offer the best selection of available apartments, informative articles and advice, making it easy to make your move!

moving It’s important to inform your kids about the family’s plans to move as soon as you can. The more time they have to prepare, the easier it will be for them, say child psychologists who suggest that children should participate in the decision-making. If kids feel included and take ownership of their new-home decision, the transition will go much easier. Moving is a family process so share the excitement and responsibilities with every member of the family. Give everyone an age-appropriate responsibility. Kids will enjoy decorating their moving boxes. And when you are in your new home, it will be easier for them to find their stuff. Throughout the move, stay as upbeat and calm as possible. Give your children a chance to express their feelings and try to be honest about your own feelings. Most children will feel some anger, sadness or may worry about the move. Reassure them they aren’t alone and it’s OK to have these feelings. Involve your kids in the packing process and start packing items you will not need ahead of time. Sentimental items your children treasure such as special blankets, beloved stuffed animals and photo albums should be kept in a separate bag or box which they can keep close until moving day, and then bring with them to your new home. Plan a date to tour your new neighbourhood with your family. If it’s not a long distance, why not ride your bikes and scope out your children’s favourite activities and even fast food locations, new neighbourhood tennis courts, soccer clubs, baseball associations.

emails and addresses of important people in their lives. Prepare cards that have their name and new address on them to hand out to friends. If you are moving within the same city, try to schedule a few play dates with their friends before your move day.

Check with the local school PTA to determine if there is a Welcome Wagon TheRentersGuide.ca program, arrange a tour of their new school and meet the teachers ahead of moving day.

Give your kids an inexpensive digital camera to take as many pictures as possible of their friends prior to moving day. This way, they’ll have a reason to stay in touch as they share the photos.

Make sure children say goodbye to the important people in their lives. Help TheRentersGuide.ca them prepare a list of phone numbers,

Keep them involved with the sports teams they were associated with until the end of the season, so they

can maintain their friendships while they make new friends in their new neighbourhood. Child psychology experts agree that if kids know they can stay in touch with friends and loved ones, it will make the move less traumatic.

Security

is everyone’s business By Jane He rman

G

enerally, it’s the building owner and management who are responsible for the security of your building. The Residential Tenancies Act notes that the building’s windows, doors, locks and lighting must be in a good state of repair. The safety of your neighbourhood can also have a significant impact on your building’s security. However, residents can also help to ensure that the building is safe and secure. Be alert and help to prevent dangerous situations before they occur.

Residents have a right to expect reasonable protection, both inside TheRentersGuide.ca their apartments as well as in common areas such as parking garages and elevators. This includes proper lighting in lobbies, corridors

and laundry facilities, and deadbolt locks on doors and window locks. Responsible landlords maintain and fix security problems, such as burnedout lights, and deal with complaints about suspicious activities or broken security items. Check out the condition of security features when apartment hunting and after you move in. If you notice that any of your building’s safety features are broken or malfunctioning, report them immediately to the management. One of the most important ways to help keep your building safe is to restrict and prevent access to the building by persons who are not authorized to be there. This can create serious potential security risks. Do not be afraid to question someone who is waiting for you to buzz them in.

Burglars have been known to pose as delivery people to gain entry. Though the convenience may make it tempting, you should never make a key for friends or family members, or give out your building access code or card to anyone who does not lawfully reside in the building. Relationships change, friends come and go – there’s no need for someone with whom you are no longer involved with to have access to your home, raising safety concerns for both you and other residents in the building. If you have any concerns or notice anything suspicious, be sure to contact the appropriate person as soon as possible, be TheRentersGuide.ca it the superintendent, building management, or even the police.

renter’shelp To help keep your building safe and secure, Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation recommends that you:

previously arranged for the work. Likewise, beware of tradespeople or security personnel who knock on your door unannounced.

» Report any security concerns or problems to the building manager

» If you live near the ground and you like to open your windows, make sure they do not open wide enough to let someone through.

» Do not disable security features. Safety latches on windows keep

intruders out – and children in. » Do not prop exit doors open. These are designed to stay closed for security and fire safety. » Do not hold the door for a stranger to enter. Be wary of strangers who linger around the front door and dash to hold the door open after it has been unlocked. » Do not give your apartment keys or passcards to strangers or tell strangers the access codes to the building or amenities like the pool, gym, underground garage or other entrance.

TheRentersGuide.ca

» Do not let anyone in to do work in your apartment unless you, the landlord or building manager has

» Keep your door locked at all times, even when you are in your apartment. Remember to lock you apartment when you step out to do something in the building, like transfer your laundry, get the mail or take out the recycling. » Keep your balcony doors locked at all times. If they are not equipped with a good deadbolt lock, make sure to keep a sturdy bar in the door’s track to prevent it from opening. » Do not leave bicycles or other personal items on your balcony, especially if you are on a ground or

low floor – thieves can easily climb a ladder to steal them. Conceal and store items you cannot store inside. Thanks to modern technology, security systems are becoming increasingly sophisticated. Security pass cards and innovative key fob passes are issued to residents in many buildings. These can be

enabled and disabled remotely by the administration, thus limiting building access to tenants who presently reside in the building. Security cameras are commonplace, but in many buildings residents can see who they are buzzing in on a designated channel in their own apartment. But sometimes just old-fashioned precautions, awareness of one’s surroundings, and consideration for others in the community can also help to be effective in creating a safe and secure living environment.

quicktips

taking back time by Hellen Buttigieg

You onlY live once. life is too short. time

is money. Don’t waste my time. There are all kinds of clichés about time, and the sad part is, they are all true. The time you waste is time you will never get back. Spending time on tasks you don’t enjoy is practically a crime. Be conscious of the way you spend your time and streamline tasks to save time where you can. That extra time can be used for the better things in life. As John Lennon said “Life is what happens when you are busy making other plans.” Find it fast by clear labeling You can retrieve anything you need quickly and effortlessly when you store related items in clear (see-through) containers and label the contents with large, easy-to-read labels. You can create labels using a label maker, computer-generated adhesive labels or handwritten shipping labels attached with clear packing tape (use a thick black marker). Time management I’ve always maintained that the task expands to fit the time allotted for it, especially for perfectionists. But there is a point of diminishing returns on the time invested. When you begin a task or project, decide how much time it’s worth spending on the activity and stick to that (set a timer to help keep you on track). Understand your high/low energy periods and schedule your daily tasks accordingly Tackle tough tasks during high-energy periods and less-demanding tasks during low ones. Also consider your work style when planning your day; do you work best in short bursts or long stretches? You’ll be amazed at how much more you can accomplish by keeping your style in mind when planning your daily activities. What is your time worth? Do you wish you had more time yet find yourself spending time to save money? If you spend hours doing unpleasant tasks that you could hire someone to do, or drive across the city to save a few dollars on a grocery store special, you are squandering a precious commodity. Average people TheRentersGuide.ca spend time to save money; successful people spend money to save time. Look at it this way: You can always make more money but you can never have more than 24 hours in a day. Before doing any task, get into the habit of asking yourself what it’s costing you in terms of your time and weigh the return on TheRentersGuide.ca that investment.

An extra hour I was listening to the radio when the announcer asked “If you had an extra hour in your day, what would you do with it?” My first thought was that another question needs to be asked before I could answer that one, and it is: “What can you do to free up an extra hour in your day?” I decided to hire someone to do my bookkeeping so I could free up time to take my dog for a leisurely walk instead of rushing. I challenged my daughter with this question and she decided to give up watching “Survivor” this year so she could learn a dance solo for the studio’s competitive program. How we spend our time is our choice; we need to choose consciously. So, “what can you do to free up an extra hour in your day?” Save steps Store items near the place you use them. For example, I keep a bottle of vinegar and water and a roll of paper towel in the kitchen and in each of the bathrooms. When a quick cleanup is required, it takes less time and energy because the supplies are handy. One of my most-often used items in the house is a basket I keep in the hall closet on a shelf at waist height. I toss my keys and sunglasses in it so I never have to go searching for them when I’m rushing out the door. I also have a drawer there for my dog’s leash and bags – so handy! Find it fast It’s easy to forget where we put the items we don’t use on a regular basis. Create an inventory that details the storage location of items you use only on a seasonal or occasional basis. Keep the document on your computer with a shortcut on your desktop. As the list grows, you can always find the information quickly by using the Edit/Find feature in MS Word. Now you never have to worry about remembering where you put your passport! Consolidate tasks to save time For example, return calls and emails in batches rather than interrupting yourself throughout the day.

Scrumpdillyicious

LesLie styLes, foodie & traveL aficionado, shares some deLicious dishes found on her traveLs around the worLd.

Lemon Posset and Lemon Pistachio shortbread Lemon PistAchio shortbreAd ingredients makes about 40

› 2/3 cup unsalted butter, softened › 1/3 cup + 1 tbsp icing sugar, sifted › 1/4 cup lemon juice › 2 lemons, finely grated zest › 1 tsp vanilla extract › 1 3/4 cups + 1 tbsp all purpose flour, sifted › 1/2 cup pistachios, finely chopped › 2 tbsp cornstarch, sifted › 2/3 cup icing sugar for garnish, sifted directions

L

emon Posset is a traditional British dessert that was based on a drink popular during the Middle Ages, when access to lemons was a sign of wealth and power. Known simply as Posset, it was originally made with milk beaten with eggs, sugar, and spices and curdled with ale or wine. Over the centuries, the word posset has come to mean a simple pudding, and although this recipe is over five hundred years old, the hallmark of any great dish that has stood the test of time is simplicity, and Posset is no exception, containing just three ingredients: heavy cream, sugar and lemon juice. Simple, elegant and deliciously tangy, Lemon Posset delivers great results with very little effort. Similar to Italian panna cotta which is made with milk, Posset is made with cream for a more velvety, rich and smooth texture. Made in a matter of minutes, then left to TheRentersGuide.ca chill, this rich tangy and creamy lemon curd-style dessert is delicious garnished with a dollop of whipped cream, fresh Ontario wild blueberries, and a flurry of lemon zest. Serve with one of the great pleasures of life – buttery Lemon TheRentersGuide.ca Pistachio Shortbread.

Lemon Posset ingredients

makes Four 4-oz servings Adapted from a recipe by gordon ramsay

› 1 1/3 cup English double cream (48%) or whipping cream (35%) › 1/3 cup caster sugar

Place the butter and icing sugar in the bowl of an electric mixer and beat for eight minutes or until pale and creamy. Add the lemon juice, zest and vanilla and beat until combined. Add the flour and corn starch and beat just until a smooth dough forms. Add the chopped pistachios and mix until well blended. Turn dough onto a lightly floured surface and divide in half. Divide the dough into two parts, and roll each into a log about two inches in diameter. Wrap each log in plastic wrap and referigerate for at least two hours or until firm.

› 2 lemons, juiced directions

Pour the cream and the sugar into a small saucepan over a low heat and bring to the boil slowly, stirring constantly to dissolve the sugar. Once it comes to the boil, let the cream bubble for three minutes, stirring continuously. Remove the pan from the heat and pour in the juice of one lemon, stirring the mixture thoroughly as you do so. It should start to thicken instantly. Taste the mixture and add a little more lemon juice if it’s not tart enough. The Posset should be sweet, tangy and creamy. Allow to cool for about five minutes, then pour into individual glasses, pots or decorative bowls. Cover with plastic wrap and chill in the refrigerator for at least three hours or overnight. If the Possets are very firm, take them out of the refrigerator 15 minutes before serving to soften. Serve with Lemon Pistachio Shortbread Cookies.

Preheat the oven to 350°F. When the dough is chilled, use a sharp knife to cut 1/4-inch to 1/2-inch thick disks from the log. Bake on a parchment covered baking sheet for 10 to 12 minutes, until lightly golden. Remove from the oven and let cool about five minutes, then gently toss the warm shortbreads in the extra icing sugar and allow to cool completely on wire racks.
