ou’ve decided it’s time to rent a new space. Now you have another decision to make – choosing your property management company. How can you check the reputation of the company or landlord you’re considering renting from? First, find out how long the company has been in business by asking the staff or visiting the company’s website to see what information they offer online.

Most property management companies have well-established business practices in place to ensure that the customer comes first. If possible, drive around existing communities managed by the company you’re considering and speak to some of the renters in the building. Many property management companies will be able to put you in touch with people who would be happy to provide a testimonial. Get a feel for each company and the staff. You should be comfortable and courteous asking questions and in turn you should expect to be treated with consideration and respect. Think twice about any property management company that doesn’t willingly provide any information you respectfully request. Putting the customer first and offering the best quality rental space for your money is a property management company’s ultimate goal. Once you find the perfect space, don’t hesitate in going for it and making it your own! Let us know how your search for a new home goes. We’d love to hear from you!

es, it’s cold. I think we can all admit it’s cold out there. I don’t care what the statistics say, I say it’s the coldest year I’ve ever experienced. (But I say that every year.) And when it’s not cold, it’s wet. So please, just indulge me and stop reminding me that I’m Canadian. I’ll take snowy walks, go ice skating, spend a day on the ski hills – but I will not say ‘eh’ and I will not accept how awful the weather is. Windchill just depresses me. For those of you who feel the same, picking the right home is a great way to offset the whining.

Part of the problem with winter is lack of sunlight. The days are too short and it’s difficult for some of us to contend with. Pick your apartment by exposure. If you’re a morning person, an eastern exposure will get you a sunrise and morning to mid-day sun. If you’re home all day perhaps a southern exposure will max out your sunlight quotient. Opt for a community with underground parking. The less time out in the elements the better. It’s those days sitting in an ice-cold car, revving the engine with the defrost on high after battling with the ice scraper that leave you cold and miserable and Googling jobs in sunny climates. Finally, try finding a resort-like community. Something with an indoor pool, whirlpool and sauna. The outdoor pool may be a spectacular summer bonus, but in the winter, being able to luxuriate without stepping outside may add the tropical twist that your winter-resenting heart desires. With this in mind, you’re ready for a winter move, and we’re here to help. Our magazine and website, TheRentersGuide.ca, offer the best selection of apartments, informative articles and advice, making it easy to make your move!

Live in the heart of North York

nown for style, quality and great management, Sheppard Centre Apartments just took midtown living up a notch with newly renovated suites. Condostyle features and design, the premium suites feature stained flooring, mirrored closet doors and a new bathroom. The open concept layout shows off the designer kitchen with stainless steel appliances.

In December, the Sheppard Centre Apartment’s renovation was recognized at the 2013 MAC FRPO Awards – the Oscars of the rental industry. The Suite Renovation Award is a prestigious nod to a well-deserving team. Tandem has created some exceptional suites and will soon offer a model suite so you can tour this must-see opportunity. Sheppard Centre Apartments also offers a great selection of traditional rental suites. These bachelors one-, two- and threebedroom suites are modern and spacious, accommodating all, from singles, students and couples to families. It’s popular with empty nesters who don’t want to leave the neighbourhood as they downsize from the family home. Modern, furnished short-term rentals are also available.“More affordable than a hotel – bigger, and nicely decorated,” says Leonard Visconti senior property manager at Tandem Property Management. Suites have everything: TheRentersGuide.ca Internet, maid service, laundry and parking are included. Suites are fully equipped for that ‘at-home’ comfort and are available the week, the month – or for as long as you like.

The buildings offer peace of mind. They also value Sheppard Centre Apartments as not just a place to live, but a community, and hold tenant functions and events that allow neighbours to mingle, fostering a great sense of community. The heart of North York is where people want to be. The location has amazing nightlife, great dining, shopping, pampering and cultural options as well as a huge array of businesses and services. The Sheppard Centre Apartments, Managed by Tandem Property Management is ideally situated directly at Sheppard and Yonge - giving residents access to the mall on the lower floors as well as putting them at the subway crossroads, where the north/south line meets the east/west line, putting access to the whole city just an elevator ride away.

Ndc\ZVcYH]ZeeVgY The heart of North York

O

BY JANE HERMAN

nce upon a time, Yonge St. north of the 401 was a two-lane road in the country, flanked by block after block of low-rise commercial and residential buildings. Today, North York has evolved into a city that resembles a smaller version of Toronto’s downtown. The area of North York centring around Yonge and Sheppard encompasses the communities of Lansing and Willowdale. TheRentersGuide.ca Here, you’ll enjoy many of the benefits that living in a city offers – such as access to government services, cultural TheRentersGuide.ca amenities, work opportunities and transportation networks, without the same congestion and density of downtown. TheRentersGuide.ca 10

TheRentersGuide.ca


HAVING FUN Yonge and Sheppard offers much to enjoy in the way of recreation and entertainment. The Toronto Centre for the Arts is a major entertainment venue offering an exciting lineup of shows and events. The Douglas Snow Aquatic Centre, situated just to the north of the North York Civic Centre at 5100 Yonge St. is a multi-purpose community centre featuring a large public pool with a fabulous waterslide. During the winter you can skate on the frozen reflecting pool in front of Mel Lastman Square. The adjacent North York Central Library is the largest full-service Toronto Public Library building, second to the Metro Reference Library in square footage. There are movie theatres located just to the south at Yonge and Sheppard, and more in Empress Walk. There are a multitude of restaurants serving foods of all ethnicities from Thai to Japanese, Italian, Greek and French, plus pub fare, fast food and fine dining lining Yonge St. throughout the neighbourhood. Outdoor enthusiasts will enjoy the proximity to the Don Valley Golf Course, just south of the 401 on Yonge St., and Earl Bales Park at Bathurst and Sheppard with its many kilometers of scenic trails and downhill skiing and snowboarding in the winter. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s even a public lawn bowling court on Beecroft Rd., directly behind the Civic Centre complex.

SHOPPING The two major shopping malls in the area, the Sheppard Centre and Empress Walk, have underground access to the TTC, while the Sheppard subway line has spurred additional development along Sheppard Ave. E. Empress Walk is built around a large multi-storey cathedral-like hall and features a grocery, a business centre, liquor store and many additional businesses and professional services. The Sheppard Centre Mall at Yonge and Sheppard has more than 75 stores, shops, services and eateries, including popular chains, brand names and all the major banks.

LIVING IN THE AREA At Yonge and Sheppard there are numerous lifestyle options for singles, couples and families of all sizes. Choose from luxurious highrises with spectacular views, condo-style amenities, fitness facilities, games and party rooms. There is a group of highrise buildings with direct access into the subway, so you can do your shopping, meet friends for lunch, and avoid any inclement weather. You can opt for a spacious low-rise in a park-like setting. The area is ideal for urban living, providing access to the highway and the ease of traveling across the GTA, but will TheRentersGuide.ca appreciate the new construction and the reduced congestion and access to numerous suburban amenities.

Code of Conduct guides actions through CERTIFIED RENTAL BUILDING PROGRAM B Y TED WHI T EHEAD

O

ne of the many benefits of choosing an apartment in a rental building that bears the Certified Rental Building Program (CRBP) distinction is knowing that the owners and/or property managers have agreed to conduct business according to a Member Code of Conduct.

agree to pursue, along with avoidance of and protection against fraud, misrepresentation and unethical practices of any kind.

This brings great peace of mind to renters, and offers CRBP members a clear, concise reminder of what is expected of them once their buildings have been granted certification status.

Another aspect of the Code includes continual education, training and communication. Members agree to ongoing efforts to uphold and improve professional standards. This benefits everyone, from renters to managers, owners, and professional industry organizations.

The CRBP is managed and operated by the Federation of Rental Housing Providers of Ontario (FRPO) with the goal of protecting the interests of all multiresidential apartment building stakeholders – and the Code of Conduct plays a major role in accomplishing that goal. What does it mean for renters? The key word in the Code of Conduct is “professionalism.” CRBP members agree to operate their buildings with high standards of integrity and honesty – and that goes for renters, suppliers, employees and contractors. Managers and owners must do their best to make sure the apartment building is safe and secure for everyone who lives and works there. Of course, members are required to comply with municipal, provincial and federal legislation and by-laws when it comes to the operation of residential buildings, and the Code of Conduct contains a reminder. There is also an item that covers the agreement to not discriminate against anyone on the basis of race, colour, creed, gender, sexual orientation, family status, national origin, receipt of public assistance or source of income. Beyond this point, CRBP members agree to report to the Program’s administration any laws or policies that they may find unfair or prejudicial to renters or rental housing providers. Much of the Code of Conduct is based on the golden rule. For example, there is an item stipulating that members agree to treat their tenants with respect, and should expect to receive respect in return. All parties involved in a rental residence TheRentersGuide.ca situation should know and uphold their responsibilities. If and when a dispute arises, the building owner or manager is expected to resolve it in good faith. Tenants should be aware that there is a mediation service offered by the Ontario Rental Housing Tribunal for cases that are not resolved adequately between the parties at the building level. Fairness is the operating principle that members TheRentersGuide.ca

28

Fairness, conscientiousness, honesty, integrity, respect – these are the concepts that form the basis for the CRBP Code of Conduct. These are excellent values that should guide all business interactions, and in fact, life in general. The bottom line result for tenants is improved communication with their building manager and/or owner, as well as a better quality of life for all parties. A copy of the Program’s Code of Conduct is available by sending an email to info@crbprogram.com For more information visit crbprogram.org

UNDERSTANDING the language of

MOVING BY CHUCK R ESNICK

Dolly, LD, corrugated, internal move – hearing the terms used to describe your move may give you panicked flashbacks of high school second language classes.

moving within the province. Although the move is still considered intraprovince, different rates may apply if the move is considered “Long Distance.”

Professional moving can be a very technical business. There are industry-specific terms to describe moving processes and products that most people have never heard before. No need to worry.

Local move: A move in which all stages of moving take place near the moving company’s origin.

Consider the following list your intro to the Moving Language course; you’ll be saying pass the stretch-wrap before you know it! SOME HELPFUL TERMS Appliance dolly: A special dolly with straps to help load and unload large items such as appliances and oversized furniture.

compensate for the higher cost of fuel. When getting a quote, be sure to ask your mover,“Will this be the final cost, or are there additional fees?”

Larger screen TV dolly: A special hard-cased enclosed box with wheels that can safely accommodate any largescreen television to allow it to be moved safely. If you have a large screen TV, be sure your mover has this specialized equipment to make sure it does not get damaged during your move.

Corrugated: Describes a type of cardboard used to make boxes for moving and storage. Corrugated boxes have multiple layers of cardboard called “fluting” that give strength and durability to the box’s structure.

Binding estimate: A flat price based upon a given inventory meaning no matter how long the job takes, the flat price is always paid. This is typically restricted to situations when an on-site estimate is performed. Bill of lading: A contract between the mover and the customer that also acts as a receipt. Make sure you understand TheRentersGuide.ca everything on the bill before you sign it. Fuel surcharge: When gasoline prices are in a period of flux, some movers will charge the customer an added fee TheRentersGuide.ca in addition to the cost of the move to

32

Dish cells: Cardboard inserts that provide individual cubicles for your dishware within a cardboard box. Dish cells give extra support to breakable dishes and prevent the box from caving or allowing direct contact between pieces. Internal move: A move in which the items stay in the same building. Internal moves are useful for preparing your home or office for painting, carpet cleaning, furniture rearrangement and holiday decorating. LD: Short for long distance move. Many provinces regulate the moving industry based on the distance the items are

Non-binding estimate: When an in-home estimate cannot be conducted, the customers give a description of items to be moved. The mover then gives the customer his best guess of what the move will cost based on his previous experience with similar jobs. These estimates are typically requested by the customer last minute, agreed to over the phone and are subject to change. Stretch-wrap: A thin plastic packing and moving material used to secure moving blankets covering your items during the moving process. Stretch-wrap is used to protect your furniture from precipitation, sweat and tearing. Shrink-wrap: A thicker plastic, which requires heat to adhere to furniture. Typical items do not require packaging this thick for moving. Like learning any new language, it’s important to ask questions. If there is a term you do not understand, ask the representative from your moving company to clarify. Confusion about some moving terms is not only frustrating, it can be costly.

BRINGING TOGETHER

‘His’ & ‘Her’ Style BY YANIC SIMARD

36


THE REALITY IS THAT ONCE YOU MOVE IN

together you have to share a space, and your space ultimately reflects your style. You have to take what you both have already and determine what to keep, what will work and what won’t. Whether it be her childhood teddy bear, or that ugly thing he calls a “sofa,” the issue that arises is how to blend her past along with his, and still have an extremely welldecorated and tasteful place to go home to.

DO WE HAVE TO KEEP THAT? WHAT IS THAT? WHAT DO WE NEED TO BUY? THESE ARE JUST SOME OF THE QUESTIONS THAT WILL COME UP ALONG THE WAY Do we have to keep that? What is that? What do we need to buy? These are just some of the questions that will come up along the way. You both need to be on board, and working toward a design goal that will make both of you happy at the end of the day. Hopefully you share at least some of the same taste! Opposites attract, so pairing your pieces together can work. Mix heavier and lighter pieces together, and mix opaque with transparent. When you start mixing and matching your styles you will be surprised at how harmonious it can look. Just make sure that you listen to each other – you need to understand each other’s needs and wants. It’s a good idea to spend a weekend and analyze what you both have to determine where you stand in terms furnishings for your home. Will you be having children down the road? Children will determine a lot of things, such as what you really need to invest in. Do you really need that 52-inch plasma television, or should you spend on something else? Make a wish list that is prioritized, starting with what you really need and where your TheRentersGuide.ca money needs to go first. Find common ground and choose on an overall design style and concept.

If you have a piece of furniture that you just can’t let go of, changing the look of it is the best way to hold onto it. Consider re-upholstering or painting it to match your new, blended décor. Complement your existing furniture with newer pieces that link both styles. You can take his dining room chairs, match it with her dining room table and purchase a new light fixture that will join the two styles. By combining your pieces, you can create some of the most visually interesting and appealing rooms. Merging your styles together will not happen over night. Eventually the two styles will come together, creating what will hopefully be a balanced and harmonious space. Combining the styles will take thought, and whether it be including her teddy bear, or that ugly sofa of his, it just needs to be executed in the right way, creating an extremely well-decorated and tasteful place to go home to.

TOP 10 TIPS TO

Being a good

neighbour BY JANE HERMAN

P

eaceful, harmonious apartment living is all about treating others with respect and consideration. When you act with sensitivity to your neighbours, it’s amazing how others will respond. The following are 10 etiquette tips that make for good neighbours.

TheRentersGuide.ca TheRentersGuide.ca TheRentersGuide.ca 48

TheRentersGuide.ca


1

Keep the noise down. Apartment walls are notoriously thin, and at the best of times, sharing walls is bound to mean hearing your neighbours, so try to consider whether your neighbours really want to hear your activities. Keep in mind that people have different sleeping schedules. Neighbours could be working at night and sleeping when you are awake! Likewise, 10pm is not the appropriate time to vacuum or hang pictures. Avoid loud noise at all times, but particularly late at night and early in the morning, especially arguing, playing music or watching the television at excessive volumes. If you like it loud, consider getting a pair of headphones for your home entertainment. High heels on the floors, bouncing a ball and other repetitive noises will affect the neighbour below, whose ceiling is attached to your floor. The click-clacking of shoes can become quite an irritant.

2

Clothing is not optional! Remember to dress appropriately with at least a shirt and sandals when taking out trash, recycling, doing laundry or getting something from your car.

3

Respect and maintain common areas as if they were an extension of your own home. Tidy up after yourself in the laundry room. After using the barbecue or party room, take out all trash and leave as you found it.

4

Check up on your laundry regularly. Don’t leave it sitting in the washer or dryer after it has finished, it annoys other people who are waiting to use the machine. Invest in a drying rack and dry delicate items inside, not on your balcony.

5

Be aware of your neighbours but also respect their right to privacy. This means not making their business – like when they enter and leave the building, where they are going – or who they are with – your business. While some communities are friendly and open, try to avoid the gossip mill.

6

When cooking, open your window so that it doesn’t smell up the entire floor. Your dinner may smell appetizing to you – but not everyone needs to know what’s on the menu. And when several apartments on the same floor share their dinner aromas it can be an unappetizing sensory overload. There is nothing worse than emerging from the elevator to a pungent-smelling hall.

7

Be cognizant of, and promptly report any crimes or suspicious persons in the building. Be aware of your surroundings, you and your neighbours should be looking out for ear other. It’s your duty to report any signs of domestic disputes, child abuse, or suspicious persons in the building. This is not just a matter of etiquette, but of community safety. Be proactive by maintaining secure practices like locking your apartment door and not letting strangers access your building.

8

Ensure that your pet is a good neighbour, too. To prevent accidents, walk your pet regularly, and make sure TheRentersGuide.ca he or she isn’t howling all day or barking all night. The balcony shouldn’t be the doggy bathroom, and any accidents out there should be cleaned promptly

9

Be a model citizen in the parking lot. Keep the music down and drive slowly and carefully, anticipating seniors and children. Likewise, stick to your own parking space and make sure your guests do the same. Even if you know your neighbour works during the day, stay out of their assigned spot. They may have to come home for a quick break.

10

Waiting for a ride? Honking is just plain rude. Ask your carpool driver to give you a quick ring or text. Better yet, be waiting in front of the building and be prepared.

Etiquette is just a set of guidelines for acting in accordance with the needs of others. If you treat your neighbours with respect and courtesy, you’ll help to foster a harmonious apartment community that you too will enjoy.

MAKE DO A MONTH B Y GAI L VAZ -OX LADE

I

f there’s any month when you’re most likely to wonder if all the bills will get TheRentersGuide.ca paid it’s usually January. After the feverish rush of the holidays and all the unexpected expenses that popped up, no doubt things will be a little tight. Add TheRentersGuide.ca the extra cost of heating and the jump in “fresh” food prices and you’ll be looking for ways to trim back. TheRentersGuide.ca

58

TheRentersGuide.ca


But what if you have family or friends whose birthday falls in January. You’ll have to buy something. No you don’t. You can give something of yourself instead of something purchased. Make their favorite cookies, offer to cook them a meal or a bunch of meals for the freezer for those extra busy workdays, or create a coupon for three nights of free babysitting. Maybe you’re a computer genius and can offer to do maintenance or repairs. Perhaps you’re a mechanic and can offer a tune-up. Substitute your energy for spending money. After the buzz of the holidays you’ll no doubt be happy to stay home for the first couple of weeks. Then you may start feeling itchy. You’ve got to get out. You can feel the walls closing in. Time to hit that great new restaurant that just opened up, or head out to the clubs. Wait a minute. This is Make Do Month.

Enter Make Do Month. This is the month when you stretch everything a little farther so you spend a lot less. If you get invited to a party, you don’t rush out and buy something new, you get creative and shop your closet. And if you need a little something different, you shop a friend’s closet. Or hold a clothing exchange. What you don’t do is spend money. When the weather is warm, it’s easy to do lots of free things. When it’s cold, entertainment gets more expensive. Sure there’s that great movie you’d love to take the family to for a night out of the house. For a family of four, you’re probably looking at $100 or more with popcorn and drinks. Recycle a movie you already own or do a movie swap with friends, add some home-made popcorn and a 12pack of pop and you can probably do it for $10. Now that’s making do. January is also a good month to experiment with a new routine as you make do. If you’re used to buying coffee every day, brew your own at home or work and save big-time. If you regularly go out for lunch, pack one from home for four out of TheRentersGuide.ca every five days and not only will you drop those holiday pounds, you’ll be able to pay off that holiday debt.

Call up a couple of friend and throw a pot-luck game night instead. See if you can do it at their house this time. Start a tradition of once a month game or poker nights and rotate from one friend’s home to another. No one says you can’t have fun in Make Do Month. You just can’t spend gobs of money. Make Do Month is a conscious decision to stretch every dollar as far as it’ll go. Try it and see if just becoming conscious save you money. I’ll bet your pleasantly surprised.

GET THE NEW YEAR OFF TO A GOOD START WITH A HOME INSURANCE REVIEW AFTER THE EXCITEMENT OF THE HOLIDAYS AND THE EXCHANGE OF GIFTS, many people have a little break around the New Year. It’s the perfect time to review your home insurance policy and update your home inventory, especially if you’ve received expensive gifts such as jewellery, TVs or electronics this Christmas. “Maintaining a home inventory protects you in the event of theft or damage to your home’s contents. Having an inventory helps ensure you have the right amount of coverage and may help speed up the claims settlement process faster after a loss,” says Bill Adams, IBC VicePresident, Western & Pacific.

Here are a few tips to protect your possessions in the New Year: Note the approximate replacement value of each item, along with makes, models, serial numbers, receipts, credit card statements and other identifying marks. They can serve as proof of ownership. If you have any questions about which items are covered by your policy, contact your insurance representative. If you are renting, remember that your landlord’s insurance policy typically does not cover your personal belongings or liability. It is up to you to ensure you have coverage in place. Contact an insurance professional to discuss your specific circumstances. Renters should also keep an up to date list of their belongings in case of theft, loss or damage. Move room to room and take photos or video footage of all of your valuable possessions. Remember to update your list of inventory as needed. For a complete home inventory worksheet visit ibc.ca.

TheRentersGuide.ca

Keep your list of inventory in a safety deposit box or other safe place away from home. It is your responsibility to make sure that your insurance company has an accurate and up-to-date description of your home which can help speed up the claims settlement process after a loss. TheRentersGuide.ca

2014 RENT INCREASE CAP

SECOND LOWEST SINCE 1975 Ontario Government Committed to Affordable Housing THE MINISTRY OF MUNICIPAL AFFAIRS AND HOUSING released its numbers last summer, and they couldn’t have been more favourable for renters. In 2014 the guideline rental increase in Ontario will be just 0.8 per cent. The Rent Increase Guideline is based on the Ontario Consumer Price Index. This year’s rate will be the second lowest in history. It will help to ensure Ontario families have more money in their pockets while keeping housing affordable.” says Linda Jeffrey, Minister of Municipal Affairs and Housing. The ministry is obligated to release their number by August 31 for the following year. This gives renters the opportunity to budget for an increase – should they be given one – and the opportunity for landlords and property management companies to budget for the increased revenues – should they choose to implement the rent increase. Ministry of Municipal Affairs and Housing Ontario is capping rent increases for 2014 at 0.8 per cent for the province’s one million tenant households – the second lowest cap since the introduction of rent regulation 38 years ago. The cap, also known as the Rent Increase Guideline, is the maximum amount a landlord can increase a tenants’ rent without seeking the approval of the Landlord and Tenant Board. Under circumstances dictated by the Residential Tenancies Act, upon successful application by the landlord the rent can be increased above the guideline, but only if specific criteria are met, such as substantial capital improvements.

QUICK FACTS The average rent increase guideline from 2004 to 2013 was 2.1 per cent. The average rent increase guideline from 1993 to 2003 was 3.1 per cent. The Ontario government passed legislation in 2012 to amend the Residential Tenancies Act, 2006 to ensure that the guideline is capped at no higher than 2.5 per cent. The 2014 guideline applies to rent increases that occur between Jan. 1 and Dec. 31, 2014. A tenant must be given proper written notice of a rent increase at least 90 days before the rent increase takes effect.

TheRentersGuide.ca

The guideline is calculated under the Residential Tenancies Act, 2006, which came into force on Jan. 31, 2007. The calculation is based on the Ontario Consumer Price Index, a measure of inflation that is calculated by Statistics Canada.

TheRentersGuide.ca 70

The guideline does not apply to: Vacant residential units – a landlord or property management company is free to set the rent on any vacant apartment, the guidelines only apply to current tenants. Residential units first occupied on or after Nov. 1, 1991 – Apartment buildings, rental suites and rental condos occupied on or after November 1, 1991, do not have a capped annual increase. This means that, after 12 months of occupancy the rent can be increased by any amount that the management wishes to implement. Social housing units – Subsidized, not-for-profit and rent-gearedto-income are based on need an income and follow different legislation. Nursing homes – Specialized service housing is governed by different rules and fee structures. Cohabiting with homeowner – If you share a kitchen or bathroom with the owner of the home. Seasonal or temporary housing – These are also governed by different rules. Commercial property – A commercial lease is not bound by residential bylaws or the Residential Tenancies Act. Providing Ontarians with affordable TheRentersGuide.ca housing is part of the government’s plan to create a fair and prosperous society and help people in their everyday lives.

Accessorize

me!

BY JANE LOCKHART

L

ooking to add some “pow!” to your space? Want to make a new home feel lived in and warm? Or are you simply looking to put some personality into a lifeless room? Look no further, the answer is clear – it’s in the power of accessories! There is no better way to finish a room than by adding those little touches that not only complete the design vision, but they often take seemingly unconnected items and simply tie them together.

TheRentersGuide.ca

TheRentersGuide.ca 76

Today there are an abundance of accessories available in multiple colours and endless styles. Accessories can range from the obvious furnishings like pillows and throws, to clocks, area rugs and even artwork and lamps. Truly, anything short of the main items in a room required for it to function can be considered an accessory. Even some small pieces of furniture such as ottomans and side chairs can be classified as room accessories, depending on the space. But for the most part, people generally think of those little decorative items as the TheRentersGuide.ca finishing touches which have immense impact, despite their small size.

TheRentersGuide.ca


Accessorizing can perform multiple functions within a room, depending on the style desired. For instance, the best way to tie a colour scheme together in a room is with throw pillows, blankets and small objects in a variety of co-ordinating colours. If high impact is your goal, select items in complementary or high-contrast colours to the room itself so they stand out against their surroundings. Or, if your space seems a bit flat, go for pieces that have strong pattern and texture compared to those larger items surrounding their placement. The key to great accessories is to determine the overall goal to be achieved. Once this has happened, shopping for particular items can start. Know what you are shopping for before your begin, otherwise the temptation is to buy multiple items with no overall plan for their display. Accessory placement is as important as the item itself. Where possible, it’s best to stick to groups of objects rather than random placement of things all over surfaces. Groups of objects create mini focal points and reinforce the visual picture to the viewer. Varying heights and sizes of objects together add interest and break up flat walls behind. But remember to always keep it simple. When beginning the process of placing items within a room, clear the space of all existing accessories. Move them to an adjacent room, and then add newly acquired pieces to this group as well. It’s from this group that you will select the pieces for positioning within the desired room. This allows you to determine key areas for placement. TheRentersGuide.ca Now, there is a fine line between well-displayed accessories and visual clutter. This can occur when too many items are

placed all over a room with little rhyme or reason for location. Having too many accessories is as bad as too few, and can completely tank a good room design quickly. Use restraint – you can always add more over time. Never overlook fresh flowers as a soft and fragrant accessory to any room. The colour and texture of a bouquet can add that personal flair and brings a touch of the outdoors in. When shopping for accessories, check out local shops or unrelated retail stores, as items from these locations can often fit your room perfectly but offer a more individual element to the space. Even when you are on holiday or business travel, check out regional shops to see if anything catches your eye. Unique pieces gathered over a lifetime can add wonderful richness and depth to your home, making it personal to you. In fact, well-chosen and cleverly displayed objects will continue to tell a story within a room and speak volumes about you and your loved ones without you even speaking a word.

obvious cost, there are also many other less-visible expenses that are often overlooked, but which can easily add up over time. When figuring out how much home you can afford, don’t forget to consider such questions as:

aren’t included in your rent, find out which utility companies provide services to the building, and contact them to see if they can give you an idea of the average monthly costs.

monthly basis – and help you avoid any unwelcome surprises later. » Are features such as laundry and parking included, or will you need to pay more for the use of these services? » Will your monthly travel costs increase, decrease or stay about the same at the new location? » Will you need to purchase or provide your own appliances? » Is there any form of provincial or territorial rent control in place? If not, what are the landlord’s plans for future rent increases? How much you can afford to spend on rent depends on a number of factors, including your overall household income, how much debt you or your family are comfortable with, how

important your lifestyle is to you and how much you want to put aside for the future. As a general rule, however, your entire monthly housing costs – including rent, electricity, heat, water and municipal services – should total less than 30 per cent of the before-tax income of your household. This doesn’t include the cost of property insurance, parking, cable, telephone and Internet service, each of which should also be figured into your budget if you plan on using them. If you can’t find a suitable place in the area where you’re looking that meets your price range, you may want to revisit your list of preferences, and decide if there are any other costsaving measures you can make. After cost, location can be the most important factor in a rental search. Prime locations that are close to work, school, public transit or other

amenities usually cost more, but they may also offer other advantages, such as reduced commuting time and expenses. Lastly, other important considerations in choosing a rental home are the safety of the building and community, as well as its proximity to family and friends. To help you decide, prepare a list of locations that best match your needs, and then add another list of secondary locations that you could also consider if necessary.

quicktips

start the new year by freeing yourself by HELLEN BUTTIGIEG

THERE IS SO MUCH BUILDUP AT THE END OF THE

year that it can almost feel like a race to the finish line. Then January 1st arrives, the social calendar calms down and the cocooning begins as you prepare to ride out the rest of the winter. Before you jump right back to everything you were doing before the holidays, take some time to look around and decide what needs to change. Not that you have to go making grand resolutions for the new year – unless that’s your thing – but look at it as an opportunity to free yourself of things that weren’t working for you. Try new methods that may improve your life in little, noticeable ways. Get clear on the year ahead If setting New Year’s resolutions is not your thing, there’s another way of defining what you’d like your life to look like – create a vision board. Get some magazines, glue and a poster board TheRentersGuide.ca and start cutting and pasting images that you feel drawn to or that represent something you’d like to be or have in your life. If you would like to learn more about the power of these dream boards, and have a look at some of the ones I’ve created personally, check out my blog post, Creating a TheRentersGuide.ca Dream Board (WeOrganizeU.com) 106

End procrastination by knowing your payoff Ever wonder how to motivate yourself to tackle that daunting task you’ve been putting off? Rather than dwelling on the chore itself, turn your attention to how you will benefit once the job is done. If you can come up with two or three compelling ways your life will be better as a result of completing what you’ve been procrastinating on, you will find the inspiration to take action. Make your ‘someday’ a reality How many times have you wistfully said, “Someday, I’d like to…” It’s interesting how we often procrastinate on doing the things we most want to do. We continue to put it off because something more pressing always seems to come up. But life is short, and habitually putting off doing those meaningful things that bring us joy can literally suck the life right out of us. One thing that I personally find very effective is to catch myself when I say I’d like to do something, and immediately pull out my calendar and schedule it in, even if it’s not for another month or two… or even six. The trick is to allow enough time to prepare for the event in advance and, once the date approaches, treat it as you would any other appointment you’ve booked with someone important – keep it. Make decisions fearlessly Clutter often represents unmade decisions. Many people struggle with indecision because of the fear of making a mistake (especially perfectionists). It may seem easier to avoid making the decision, but by doing so, you are deciding to procrastinate and stay stuck. Whenever possible, make decisions as you go along, before they accumulate. Although there’s no guarantee you will make the right decision, you will be taking the option that appears to be the right thing to do at the time. Avoid berating yourself if the outcome is less than you had hoped, and besides, there’s usually some recourse. See it as a great learning experience and move on. One effective decision-making technique is to ask: “What’s the worse thing that can happen if I make the wrong decision?” and “Can I live with that consequence?” This usually puts the decision into perspective and helps you make it confidently.

AN INSIDERâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;S GUIDE TO

creating a stylish and functional nursery

M

oms seem instinctively to know the importance of creating a special nursery space where they can bond, interact and love every moment with their baby. In fact, a survey from PlaytexBaby found that an overwhelming majority of moms (87 percent) agree that itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s essential to put time into making the nursery a great space for their little one.

TheRentersGuide.ca TheRentersGuide.ca TheRentersGuide.ca 110

TheRentersGuide.ca


Yet often times, creating a nursery can be daunting, as moms strive to ensure this space provides functionality, while also conveying a certain style. To help simplify the process, celebrity nursery designer and founder of Bratt Decor, Mary Bauer, provides expert tips to help moms get started. “Moms are spending so much time in the nursery each day, so they want to create a room that is fun and stylish, but also one that’s functional - and you can have both,” says Bauer. “By following a few simple tips when creating a nursery, moms can ensure that their journey is easy and enjoyable, and that they end up with the ideal nursery space for herself and her baby.”

Bauer’s tips include: Make the most of your room size: If you have a small space, avoid using small-scale furniture. Instead, use a few normal-sized pieces, and choose TheRentersGuide.ca furniture that can do double duty - like a changer that’s a dresser, or an ottoman with a storage compartment.

Using soft, cool tones will also make your room feel larger. Create a convenient changing space: Ensure that your changing table is well-stocked with baby wipes, diapers and an extra set of clothes right at your finger tips, so you never have a reason to leave your baby unattended. Position your diaper pail right next to the changing table and choose a pail that makes the whole process as easy as possible. The Diaper Genie II Elite Pail offers a convenient foot pedal, allowing you to hold your child and dispose of a diaper at the same time. Make it personal: Adding personality to your decor doesn’t have to be super expensive - create your own personal touches in your nursery to make it meaningful to you. Include vintage photographs, your baby’s silver cup, framed family heirloom christening gowns, or anything else that means a lot. This gives heritage to a brand new space, and makes it all your own.

Secure your sleep haven: Whatever your budget is, don’t scrimp on the crib - it’s the place where your baby spends the most time without you and should be a safe and comfortable space. Check out the crib buying guide, safety reports and recalls through the Health Canada website – www.hc-sc.gc.ca – before making your purchase. Many models have been recalled in the last few years, and most drop-side models have been both recalled and taken off the market. It’s best to buy new, but if you’re being given a crib make sure to check that it meets today’s safety standards and hasn’t been recalled. Create a timeless feel: No one wants to redo their rooms every year with the changing trends. Keep furnishings which are the big ticket items - timeless in design, and add trends with more affordable accent items like bedding and paint. For more tips and information, visit PlaytexBaby.com.

CHOOSING

THE RIGHT LANDLORD Six tips from an industry insider By Sheryl Erenberg

2 3 4 5

T

here are a lot of choices out there. Here are six tips from Marketing Consultant Sheryl Erenberg, who specializes in rental communities:

1

How attractive is the exterior of the building?

6

Finding the person who does rentals It shouldn’t be an obstacle course or an episode of CSI to get from the parking lot to the person who rents apartments. We call this “The Golden Path” to the product. The “path” should be clean, welllit and have plenty of signs along the way. Ideally, a sign above the enterphone panel should tell you who to call. First impressions are important Are you made to feel welcome when you arrive? How hard is the person representing the building trying to assist you? Encourage you to rent? If they are distracted or unpleasant would you want to live there? Trust your instincts. Watch and listen to how the staff interact with one another Do they appear to be working as a team? Listen to the radio chatter if you have the chance. Is the conversation between employees pleasant? Professional? A lot can be learned about the landlord by who they choose to represent them and how they train/motivate their employees. Yes, you can predict the future! If, while they are with you, the staff come in contact with an existing tenant, listen carefully to their tone of voice, their willingness to assist that customer and watch their body language. Do they know tenants by name when they meet them in the building? How effectively do they handle complaints? This could be you next month or next year! The lobby test After your visit, sit in the lobby and do an informal survey by asking passing/waiting tenants how long they’ve lived at the property and whether they would recommend it. A good sample for your survey is five to seven people.

We call this “curb appeal” in the industry. TheRentersGuide.ca

Are the grounds kept? Are the hedges trimmed? Is the grass cut and are the flower beds planted? Is the building sign visible and up to date? If the property looks neglected, the chances are good that TheRentersGuide.ca tenants will be too!

Making winter travel plans? TIPS FOR SNOWBIRDS and other TRAVELLERS ITâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;S THAT TIME OF YEAR AGAIN, WHEN CANADIAN SNOWBIRDS MAKE THEIR WAY TO WINTER IN WARMER LOCALES.RSA, one of Canadaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s leading travel insurance providers, surveyed more than 2,400 Canadian travel consumers and discovered there are different categories of snowbirds with varying travel habits and preferences. â&#x20AC;&#x153;As our population ages, the snowbird sector has grown and diversified,â&#x20AC;? says Erin Finn, director of underwriting for RSAâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s travel insurance division. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our research has found there is noticeable variation in travel habits between different categories of snowbirds, in terms of trip lengths, frequency and destinations.â&#x20AC;? In addition to traditional snowbirds â&#x20AC;&#x201C; 65-and-ups who travel longer than 30 days at a time and typically spend their winters in the common U.S. sun destinations â&#x20AC;&#x201C; there is also a younger segment TheRentersGuide.ca of snowbirds emerging.

Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re Baby Boomer age, 55 to 64, and they have their own unique preferences, typically favouring trips to more exotic, overseas locations. Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re also more likely to spend their time parasailing or trekking than lying on the beach. And, they tend to travel more frequently, but take slightly shorter trips than traditional snowbirds.RSA offers some recommendations for snowbirds and others buying travel insurance: t%POUXBJUVOUJMUIFMBTUNJOVUF5BMLUPBOFYQFSJFODFEUSBWFMJOTVSBODF broker and get a policy that suits your travel needs. t&OTVSFUIBUZPVIBWFBEFRVBUFFNFSHFODZNFEJDBMJOTVSBODFoVQUP NJMMJPOoBTXFMMBT5SJQ$BODFMMBUJPO*OUFSSVQUJPOJOTVSBODF JGZPVSFRVJSF it for your trip. t&OTVSFZPVSQPMJDZIBTZPVDPWFSFEGPSUIFFOUJSFEVSBUJPOPGZPVSUSJQ t$IFDLUPTFFXIBUFYDMVTJPOTBOEMJNJUBUJPOTZPVSQPMJDZDPOUBJOT"SFUIFSF conditions around your health status, the part of the world youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re visiting PSUIFBDUJWJUJFTZPVMMCFEPJOH *UTBHPPEJEFBUPUBMLUPZPVSCSPLFSBCPVU your destination and the kinds of activities you have planned to make sure you have the right coverage. t&OTVSFZPVIBWFBDDFTTUP XPSMEXJEFUFMFQIPOFBTTJTUBODF TIPVMEZPV have to report a claim or require travel assistance. t*GZPVUSBWFMNPSFUIBOPODFBZFBS DPOTJEFSBOBOOVBMQMBOUIBUDPWFSTZPV for multiple trips.

LESLIE STYLES, FOODIE & TRAVEL AFICIONADO, SHARES SOME DELICIOUS DISHES FOUND ON HER TRAVELS AROUND THE WORLD.

CAULIFLOWER CAKE OTTOLENGHI

DIRECTIONS

Heat the oven to 350°F. Break the cauliflower into medium-sized florets and put them in a pot with a teaspoon of salt, cover with water and simmer for 15 minutes until quite soft. Strain, and leave in the colander for a few minutes to cool and get rid of all the water. While the cauliflower’s cooking, prepare the batter. Halve the red onion and cut a few thin rings off the end of one side and set aside – these will go on top of the cake – coarsely chop the rest. Heat the oil in a pan and on a low heat, sauté the chopped onion and rosemary for eight minutes. Remove from the heat and allow to cool down. Once cool, whisk in the eggs then stir in the basil. In a separate bowl, mix together the flour, baking powder, turmeric, cheese, 1 1/2 teaspoons salt and many grinds of black pepper, then add it to the egg mixture, whisking thoroughly to remove any lumps. Stir in the cauliflower very gently, so that most pieces remain whole.

i

nspired by a recipe from Yotam Ottolenghi’s food column, The New Vegetarian, in Britain’s Guardian newspaper, this spectacular dish is part of his ongoing campaign to give cauliflower some well-earned glory. Ottolenghi’s light and wonderfully flavourful Cauliflower Cake is similar to a Spanish tortilla, but what makes it unusual is the addition of almost a dozen eggs, baking powder and the quantity of flour. The finished dish is rather like a firm omelet that slices like a cake, but instead of being humdrum, as baked egg dishes can often be, the addition of a whole head of cooked cauliflower, sautéed red onion, grated parmesan cheese, ground turmeric, minced rosemary, fresh basil – and Ottolenghi’s ever-so-clever touch of baking it all in a springform pan lined with black sesame seeds – makes this a deliciously unique and completely addictive dish. Kept chilled, Ottolenghi’s saffron-hued onion-speckled Cauliflower Cake tastes even better the next day. That is, if it lasts that long!

Line the bottom of a 9-inch round springform pan with parchment paper, and brush the sides generously with butter. Pour the sesame seeds into the pan and roll them around so that they stick to the sides, tipping out those that don’t adhere. Pour in the cauliflower batter, arranging the reserved onion rings on top, and bake in the center of the oven for 45 minutes, until golden brown and set. To remove the cake, gently release the springform pan so that the seeded crust remains intact. Serve warm or at room temperature with a light salad.

INGREDIENTS Serves 6-8 › 1 medium cauliflower, about 1.5 lb ›TheRentersGuide.ca 1 large red onion, peeled

› 1/2 tsp ground turmeric

› 1/2 cup olive oil

› 2 cups grated parmesan cheese

› 1/2 tsp finely chopped rosemary

› 1/2 tsp salt

› 10 medium or 8 large eggs

› 1/2 tbsp fresh ground black pepper

› 2 tbsp chopped basil

› 2 tbsp butter, melted for greasing

›TheRentersGuide.ca 3/4 cup plain flour

130

› 2 1/2 tsp baking powder

› 2 tbsp black sesame seeds
