EDITORS’ NOTES

r

enting an apartment over owning a home makes lots of financial sense for people in many different life situations. Maybe you just can’t afford to buy a home or don’t want to spend your hard-earned money on one. Maybe you have a plan to buy a home in a few years and want to start saving for a down payment. Or maybe you’re simply not interested in the cost and commitment that come with being a homeowner. No matter why you’re renting an apartment, you need to know your rights as a tenant. As part of the process, your landlord must give you a copy of the agreement after you sign and return it. Since this document outlines all the terms you’ve agreed to, it’s an important document to have on hand. You should avoid breaking a lease if at all possible. Each lease agreement has its own penalties for not honouring the outlined terms. Be sure to check your lease to make sure you can handle the financial ramifications that come with breaking a lease – before you break it.

p

ersonally, I think making the decision to move takes a lot of courage. It’s so easy to stay put, to make do, to find solutions to make it work, even when it clearly isn’t working. The alternative – moving – can be challenging. But when you look at it objectively, it makes so much more sense to move. Yes, it’s an inconvenience, but it’s brief, and better than living with constant inconvenience. That’s one of the major perks of renting – there is no reason to put up with the wrong apartment. It’s as easy to change as giving two months of notice (in writing of course). Whether you want to move across town to be closer to your work, or you want to move into a different size of apartment within the same building, it’s really not that difficult. Most people think moving is a hassle because of the effort to pack up your possessions and ferry them from one place to another. But the fact is, going through your possessions and paring them back is a good process to complete on occasion. Declutter. Get rid of the unnecessary stuff weighing you down. Moving is the perfect opportunity to realize what is unnecessarily taking up space in your home – and in your life. Start decluttering. Pack only what you need to keep and throw away or donate the rest. You’ll find the brief inconvenience is greatly outweighed by the satisfaction of a new home that best fits your needs – without the excess weighing you down! If you want to make the move, we’re here to help. Our magazine and website, TheRentersGuide.ca, offer the best selection of available apartments, informative articles and advice, making it easy to make your move!

Briarlane A distinguished address – Ramsden Place

Your tastes are discerning, your expectations high. You want an apartment that offers more. You want condo style, customer service and a quality residence – but with the ease, comfort and reliability that come with renting. Four words for you: Briarlane, Yorkville, Ramsden Place. Located at Bay and Davenport, at 30-50 Hillsboro, this Yorkville location begins by giving you an address of prestige. The upscale community is known for its luxury brand shopping and boutiques, its extensive array of restaurants and cafés and its abundance of spas and salons. It’s a neighbourhood that indulges its residents. Located in the heart of the city, Ramsden Place is ideal for the urbanite looking to take advantage TheRentersGuide.ca all that the city has to offer. Near Rosedale station close to the crossroads of Bloor and Yonge, it’s extremely easy and hassle-free to get around the GTA, though it’s absolutely amazing to see what’s right within walking distance of this community. TheRentersGuide.ca 8G

Nestled into a quiet side street overlooking Ramsden Park, the community is buffered from the city’s pace. The manicured grounds lead to a welcoming entryway. Recently renovated, the building also features an indoor pool with sun terrace overlooking the park as well as a fitness room, outfitted with state-of-the-art equipment. Suites are the ideal complement to the lifestyle. Also recently renovated, these suites exude style and quality. Kitchens feature new cabinetry, granite countertops and stainless steel appliances – including an over-the-range microwave. The chic gooseneck faucet in the deep-basin sink is backed by a sophisticated backsplash and ceramic flooring. Bathrooms also feature granite ‘banjo’ countertops that have the extended counter space. Large mirrors are a fabulous accent and the beveled-edge subway tile wall and tub surround give these bathrooms a designer finish. Dark stained flooring and large windows set the tone for your decor, while ample closet space provide for your storage needs. The sumptuous style is paralleled by the customer service. The dedicated onsite staff are always available to assist residence with their needs. Known for providing exceptional service, Briarlane has earned an enviable reputation in the rental industry for their high standards of quality and for resident satisfaction. With great attention to detail, they’re a property management company that makes resident needs their first priority, ensuring a TheRentersGuide.ca comfortable and well-maintained community to call home.

Yonge and Bloor

In the heart of it all by Jane Herman

E

very city has a point from which everything emanates. In Toronto it’s Yonge and Bloor. Here’s where the two main subway lines intersect. As well, addresses on all the TheRentersGuide.ca major east-west streets (i.e. Bloor, St. Clair, Eglinton) are designated as “east” or “west” from Yonge St. outward. TheRentersGuide.ca

12G

In the vertical city, the character of the neighbourhood can change significantly in just a few blocks. Such is the case at Yonge and Bloor. To the west the streetscape is dominated by luxury retailers, while to the east lies a mixed office and residential district. To the northwest lies Yorkville with its chic shops, luxury hotels and restaurants. Yorkville offers a few distinguished rental addresses. Rosedale, one of the city’s most beautiful residential areas, with many historic homes, TheRentersGuide.ca begins north and east of Yonge and Bloor. You can find some fabulous apartment buildings perched onto the Rosedale ravine, but vacancies are scarce.

TheRentersGuide.ca


Having Fun The scenic Rosedale Valley Ravine is easily accessed via Aylmer St. or Park Rd. and provides a network of pathways for walking, jogging and cycling that continues all the way to the Don River. Ramsden Park lies just across from the Rosedale subway station and has a delightful children’s playground and wading pool, tennis courts and outdoor skating rink, as well as lots of beautifully landscaped greenspace. The iconic Metro Reference Library is one block north of Bloor on Yonge. Living at Yonge and Bloor you’re close to the Manulife Centre, where you can enjoy movies, restaurants and browsing at Indigo. This can be especially fun and convenient during the winter months.

SHopping Yonge and Bloor abounds with amazing shopping. The Hudson’s Bay Centre, anchored by The Bay, features an extensive retail concourse with many shops, eateries and services. Just to the west, Cumberland Terrace, another underground mall, connects to the Manulife and Holt Renfrew Centre. Bloor St. W. – the whole Yorkville area – is a shopaholic’s paradise, featuring such upscale stores and ultra-luxury brands such as Holt Renfrew, Harry Rosen, Nike, Tiffany and Co, Chanel and Louis Vuitton. In the Manulife Centre you’ll find William Ashley China and many others.

Living in tHe area The area from Yonge St. east to Church, along Bloor and south offers the most choice of rental accommodation, while the rentals lying west of Yonge are some of the city’s most prestigious addresses. If you like the idea of living in the heart of downtown this area offers good selection and value. There are a number of highrise and smaller highrise/midrise buildings. You can find traditional suites, ideal for the urbanite and young professional. There are also some exceptionally large and luxurious suites available in various exclusive buildings. Prices are above average for Toronto, this is one of Toronto’s most upscale neighbourhoods.

Get organized in the

bedroom by yanic simard

PHOTO BY TED YARWOOD

It’s your favourIte tIme of year. It’s time for spring cleaning, which means it’s time to clear the clutter and get organized! Bedroom organizing is often last on the list because it’s a room that not many people see, but it should really be a priority because having this room under control will make your life a whole lot easier. And I’ll admit it –TheRentersGuide.ca usually I’m the one who procrastinates until I have no choice but to do it! There are so many hiding spots and creative storage ideas for those items that don’t have a “home.”

Under the bed What’s under your bed? If your bed doesn’t have fixed drawers already, make your own “closet on wheels” by attaching casters to wooden boxes. Paint them or stain them to match the colour of your bed to make them disappear into the furniture. electronics drawer Dedicate one drawer in one of your night stands to charge your cell phone, MP3 player, headset and the like. Cut a small hole in the back of the bedside table to feed wires of the chargers through, and be sure there is an outlet close by. Close the drawer and the mess is gone! Jewelry & accessory storage TheRentersGuide.ca There are many beautiful jewelry boxes and holders that look great on a dresser, if you’ve got the room. If you consider yourself crafty, try making your own!

DIy Project All you need is an old cabinet door and some kitchen cabinetry hardware: knobs, pulls and hooks. Mount the assorted hardware to the cabinet door as you please and voilà! It’s a beautiful display piece for necklaces, which can hang on the knobs, earrings can rest on the pulls, and bracelets can dangle from the hooks. Mount it to your wall and it can double as artwork. umbra’s Little Black Dress (pictured above) is another smart and savvy way to store your bling. Shaped just like your little black dress, it’s got clear pockets all over it for storage, and it can all be hung in your closet – out of sight, our of mind, until you need it! the power of pegboard Vertical space is often wasted space, and in the closet there is a ton of it! Installing pegboard to the walls in your closet will give you so much added storage you never even knew you had. Add hooks or nails to the pegboard, which will serve as spots to hang your belts, purses and scarves. Paint the pegboard the same colour as your walls for a seamless look. seasonal clothing It won’t be long before the summer clothes will be coming out, which means the winter clothes will need to be stored away. Have you ever thought of using your travel luggage as a storage place for these bulky items? When the seasons change, do the switch! it’s all an illUsion Taking five minutes out of every day to complete simple tasks in the TheRentersGuide.ca

bedroom like making the beds, keeping drawers and doors shut, and neatly folding linens and clothes. This will make your bedroom appear to be a lot more organized and a lot less cluttered.

Thorncliffe Park Women’s Committee celebrates first harvest with Premier wynne

O

n August 29 the Thorncliffe Park Women’s Committee was thrilled to welcome and tour special guests including Premier Kathleen Wynne, Councillor John Parker as well as members of the media, project funders, and supporters through their pop-up container garden in Thorncliffe Park.

Guests enjoyed the fresh flavours of the garden and learned from the volunteer gardeners from the Women’s Committee all about the vegetables that were being harvested, the unique containerized gardening system that is being piloted and why they are so excited to be part of this initiative. “It was a great event and a wonderful opportunity for the garden volunteers to showcase their good work. This garden is one way of engaging women to grow local and culturally diverse food in urban areas. It is the first garden of its kind on private property and could be a model for Thorncliffe Park” explained Sabina Ali, the Coordinator for the Thorncliffe Park Women’s Committee. Premier Wynne, who is also Ontario’s Minister of Agriculture, helped the TheRentersGuide.ca women with the morning’s harvest and was enthusiastic in her support for this local growing initiative. This container gardening project in Thorncliffe Park focuses on an TheRentersGuide.ca innovative method of growing healthy

food, supported with community engagement and an aim to demonstrate and build the foundation for a local social enterprise based on local, sustainable food production. To help gain gardening skills and pilot the pop-up garden approach, the Committee has partnered with Verity Dimock, of The Growing Connection. Verity has trained the volunteers in the use of the EarthBox®, a highly space and water efficient system for growing vegetables. “Our goal is to engage women in sustainable urban food production and to demonstrate the potential for expanding the pilot, including revenue generating activities” explains Suzanne Karajaberlian with Summerhill, a local business who has partnered with the Thorncliffe Park Women’s Committee and Thorncliffe Neighbourhood Office to deliver this project. This project has been funded by The Home Depot Canada Foundation, The McLean Foundation and Summerhill and is supported by MorguardTheRentersGuide.ca properties. About Thorncliffe Park: Thorncliffe Park is the home to over 30,000 people, who live in 34 high rise buildings off one main street in an area that is approximately two square kilometers; it is densely populated and very diverse.

here are loads of books focused on how to be successful. From investing to debt repayment, from setting goals to improving your earning power, advice is everywhere.

Whether you’re determined to learn to live on less or make more money to get to debt free forever, you can succeed – you can pass – if you do the following: Plan. Yup, that’s the “P” in PASS. You can’t do anything without a plan. I liken trying to get anything accomplished with a solid plan to driving down the road blindfolded. You’re gonna end up in a ditch. Begin by clearly defining what it is you want to achieve. How will you measure your progress? If what you want isn’t quantifiable, how will you know that you achieved it? And if it doesn’t have a timeframe attached, it’s just a dream, not a plan. You have to be very specific about what you want: I want to pay off my $1200 credit card by Christmas this year. I want to have the money to pay for my $3200 honeymoon before I get married

or many first-year university or college students, a new school year means a new home.

TheRentersGuide.ca TheRentersGuide.ca TheRentersGuide.ca TheRentersGuide.ca 64G


Moving out for the first time can be a stressful change, an the transition to college or university on top of that can make it a very overwhelming experience. However, taking a few painless steps can make the move to the new “home away from home” go more smoothly. Moving children to their university or college of choice for the first time can leave parents and their student children physically and emotionally drained, if unprepared. It’s easy to get frustrated when faced with packing and condensing belongings which will ultimately have to fit in a small room in a space often shared by one, two, three or more people. So here are some tips for parents and students to make the process easier: Start early Don’t wait until the last minute to collect boxes and moving supplies. Start packing non-essential items immediately, such as seasonal clothing. Clearly label all boxes so unpacking is made easier. Try to condense Go through the new student’s belongings before packing. Reduce the amount of items to move to start the school year clutter-free. Use the right supplies Shop around for competitive prices on supplies. Avoid using old shopping bags, laundry baskets or topless boxes to transport belongings. Items can get tossed around during the move and if loose items fall out, people can get hurt. Also, beware of using grocery store boxes – they stored food and can carry bugs. Pack similar items together Label the boxes so they are easily identified. This will help the student prioritize unpacking without making a huge mess. Don’t over-pack boxes Remember, the heavier the item, the smaller the box. Use original packaging for large electronics when possible The safest way to transport electronics such as a computer, TV, mini-fridge or a microwave is to use the original packaging. If it’s not available, wrap the electronics in antistatic bubble wrap. Recycle Buying reusable supplies such as high-quality containers is good for parents’ wallets and for the environment. Most corrugated cardboard boxes can be easily folded and stored during the school year. Plastic storage bins with lids are also a good option. The containers parents buy this year can be reused and recycled throughout their student’s university career.

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

Guyanaese

Beef short riB curry directions In a blender, combine the onion, garlic, thyme leaves, pepper, and 1/4 cup water and process until smooth and thick, almost like a smoothie. Cut the beef short ribs into three-inch pieces and pat dry with paper towel then set aside in a large bowl. Add 2 tablespoons of the seasoning to the short ribs and massage it into the meat. Let rest for 1/2 hour. In a small bowl, mix the remaining seasoning, garam masala, curry powder, cumin, allspice, turmeric, tomato paste and 1/3 cup water into a thick paste. Heat a medium sized pot with the vegetable oil over mediumhigh and when the oil starts to shimmer, add the paste and fry for one to two minutes, stirring constantly until the mixture looks darker and not watery. Add the beef short ribs and stir to coat with the paste. Cook the meat for a minute or so in the fragrant mixture. Season with salt, to taste.

I

nspired by some fabulous curried beef short ribs that we had at the Keating Channel Pub & Grill this summer, I have been looking forward to trying to reproduce this dish, so exquisitely prepared by Chef Balan Balavijith. I started my investigation by exploring Guyanese curry recipes, and came across a number which featured either goat or chicken, but no short ribs. Not one to give up easily, I simply adapted those recipes and used beef short ribs instead. And I’m so glad I did because the Beef Short Rib Curry was absolutely delicious. The short ribs were enormously tender, and the sauce was delicately flavoured, velvety smooth and richly aromatic. Serving the dish with warm naan, rotis or rice ensures that it can be enjoyed to the very last drop.

Add 3 cups of water, or enough to cover the meat, and bring to a boil; then lower the heat to simmer, cover and cook for two to 2 1/2 hours, until the meat is tender. Towards the end, defat the broth if necessary by skimming the surface with a broad spoon. For a thicker gravy, remove the short ribs from the pot, set aside and keep warm, and set the sauce over medium-high and cook until it has reduced and thickened to your taste. Serve with rice, rotis or some warm naan.

ingredients serves 4-6 › 1 medium onion, chopped › 1 head of garlic cloves, peeled TheRentersGuide.ca › leaves of a few sprigs of fresh thyme › desired amount of sambal oeelk chili sauce › 1/4 cup water › 4 lbs beef short ribs › 2 tbsp seasoning (for short ribs) › 4 tbsp seasoning (for curry-masala paste) TheRentersGuide.ca › 4 tbsp garam masala

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.

TheRentersGuide.ca 84G

TheRentersGuide.ca


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. » Do not let anyone in to do work in your apartment unless you, the TheRentersGuide.ca 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.

décor

Choose multi-functional products with hidden technology and beautiful design to create a modern feel. Think televisions hidden in cabinets, speakers mounted behind the wall, and sleek kitchen faucets with a hidden sprayer. Technology that seamlessly blends into a space will always feel new. Consider incorporating accessories in shades such as clean green, saffron, ocean blue, and magenta to create a soothing atmosphere that will never feel tired. “Adding sleek pieces in a colour that you’ll always love – rather than a trendy colour – makes your style timeless, not to mention wallet-friendly,”says Jo Alcorn, a Toronto-based interior design expert. Update fabrics to those that feature timeless geometric designs, overlapping layers, or stripes. All of these can instantly make a home more contemporary without a large investment. Sleek and simple architectural details add maximum design impact and can become the focal point in any room.

Create

a timeless look in your home

L

ike fashion, interior design trends change with the seasons. Each month, different colours and patterns become the new “it” look, inspiring us to overhaul our home décor.

Keeping up with the latest looks can be challenging, not to mention expensive. That’s why it’s important to remember that keeping your home décor modern isn’t so much TheRentersGuide.ca about buying trendy furniture as it is about being practical. Invest in timeless pieces that are suited to your lifestyle and create a calm environment. Delta Faucet, a leader in beautifying home interiors, offers the following tips to make sure your space will always feel fresh: TheRentersGuide.ca

“Paying attention to your hardware including cabinet handles, light fixtures and even faucets can play a huge role in making your place look more modern,” says Alcorn. For instance, the strong, angular lines of the Vero lavatory faucet bring a sense of urban sophistication to the bathroom. See more at deltafaucet. ca. When considering furniture, look for pieces with glass or painted wood, and materials like coloured acrylic, fibreglass, and chrome. These features will ensure your choices stand the test of time. Nothing dates a space like clutter. Organize and store – or even neatly display – magazines, newspapers, and TheRentersGuide.ca books. Electronic cords should be off the floor and not visible to keep your room looking neat and clean. NC

Tips To proTecT your money online

W

hat could be more convenient than paying bills and managing your finances with a click of a button? Just make sure this convenience doesn’t come at a price. While banking sites use security software that makes them difficult to hack, cyber criminals resort to other means to get your personal information. To help you protect yourself – and your money – online, the federal government has created GetCyberSafe.ca. This site gives practical tips, including looking out for the following threats:

Phishing: Cyber criminals create fake emails that look like ‘real’ emails from your bank asking you to reply with personal information. A bank would never ask for this information by email. Avoid links in emails that take you to websites other than your banking site. Malware: This is malicious software that cyber criminals spread online and can get onto your computer. While you believe you’re banking safely, it can steal account information, hijack your account and transfer funds without your knowledge. Pharming: These attacks involve redirecting your access from a legitimate website to a fake one that looks genuine. It may include extra fields on forms that you enter (SIN, date of birth, mother’s maiden name) and, without realizing it, you submit this information directly to the attacker. When banking online. look for the “lock” icon and https:// at the beginning of the website address – a sign that the connection is secure. GetCyberSafe.ca also has tips on creating strong passwords of at least 8 characters long – a must if you are banking online. NC

Parents: Prevent your child from being a victim of cyberbullying

C

yberbullying, the bullying of a person through the use of an electronic device such as a computer or cell phone, is becoming a growing national problem. Anyone can be a victim of cyberbullying, but students are frequent targets. From fake Facebook pages, to the posting of embarrassing videos and photos, to Kick a Ginger Day (harassing red-headed people based on a 2005 episode of South Park), the stats on bullying are quite disappointing. According to Canadian national non-profit organization Stop A Bully: One in five Canadian Teens have witnessed online Bullying 25 per cent of kids between 12 to 15 have witnessed cyberbullying 25 per cent of girls and 17 per cent of boys have witnessed online harassment 51 per cent of all teens have had negative experience with social networking

TheRentersGuide.ca 16 per cent said someone posted an embarassing photo of them 12 per cent said someone hacked their account 90 per cent of parents are familiar with cyberbullying 73 per cent are either very or somewhat concerned about it.

TheRentersGuide.ca

Two in five parents report their child has been involved in a cyberbullying incident One in four educators have been cyberharassment victims. 73 per cent of educators are familiar with the issue and 76 per cent believe cyberbullying is a very or somewhat serious problem at their school. Educators consider cyberbullying (76 per cent) as big an issue as smoking (75 per cent) and drugs (75 per cent). The study adds that â&#x20AC;&#x153;the most commonly experienced form of cyberbullying is when someone takes a private email, IM, or text message and forwards it to someone else or posts the communication publiclyâ&#x20AC;? 38 per cent of girls online report being bullied, compared with 26 per cent of online boys. *Nearly four in 10 social TheRentersGuide.ca network users (39 per cent) have been cyberbullied, compared with 22 per cent of online teens who do not use social networks (all from Pew, 2007).

TheRentersGuide.ca


quicktips Because of a number of highly publicized cases of cyberbullying, colleges, school districts, law enforcement and state legislatures are taking action to address cyberbullying. Here are some tips from FindLaw.com on what parents can do now to prevent cyberbullying, and what to do if you suspect that your child is being singled out by cyberbullies:

› Ask about friends or other kids.Your child may be reluctant to open up about being the victim of cyberbullying. Start the conversation by asking your child if he has heard about other kids at school who have been victimized. Because girls are more likely to be targets of cyberbullying, ask your student about groups of girls being mean to other groups or a specific girl, or if they’ve heard about boys texting inappropriate photos of girls.

› Watch for signs. Does your child seem withdrawn? Reluctant to use some forms of technology? Maybe depressed? These are generalizations, but if you’ve noticed any changes in your child’s behavior, he or she may be the victim of technology torment. Have you noticed your child exiting out of a computer screen or smart phone quickly when you walk into a room? Is he or she spending an increasing amount of time on the Internet each day (specifically at night) or using multiple online accounts? Your child could be a cyberbully.

› Set boundaries. It’s critical to talk to your child about cyberbullying - what it is and what to do if your child feels threatened. In addition, parents should set clear boundaries about your young person’s use of technology. Clearly communicate your expectations for responsible use of technology and that, while you respect your child’s privacy, you intend to monitor it. Explain the consequences if you believe your child is abusing or misusing technology such as Facebook, Twitter, MySpace, an e-mail account or mobile device, or if it is interfering with their school work.

›“It’s just a joke.”Many kids may not perceive that they are involved in cyberbullying. Creating a fake Facebook page, sending embarrassing photos of another student to each other with a cell phone or other actions involving the Internet or mobile communications may be perceived by kids as“normal,” what other kids at their school do, or as“a joke”or“prank.”In fact, based on school policies or local or state laws, those“jokes” could get your child in a lot of trouble.

› It’s illegal. Cyberbullying is serious and can have very serious legal implications. If your child is involved in cyberbullying another child, he or she could face legal consequences, and you, as a parent, could become embroiled in a lawsuit if the parents of a student victimized by your child sue your child for emotional damages. In a growing number of cases across the US, students are being held responsible for cyberbullying, facing consequences that range from expulsion from school to prosecution.

› Passwords are private. Tell your kids not to share their online passwords with friends. A common way that kids bully each TheRentersGuide.ca other online (posting hurtful comments or sending fake messages) is to do so from another kid’s account.

› Friends don’t send embarrassing photos. Make it clear to your

child and his or her friends - it is not cool to send embarrassing photos taken at school events, parties, dances and other events to other students, who may ridicule or taunt the student in the embarrassing photo.

› It can haunt you. What many kids and adults don’t realize is that what you post on Facebook and other social media can remain accessible on the Internet for years and years. Those hurtful comments, snide remarks and embarrassing photos (including inappropriate photos of their bodies or body parts) can be searched by college admissions offices and future employers.

› Others are watching. Parents should strongly recommend to their kids that they never, ever post or send to anyone photos of themselves in sexually suggestive poses. There have been numerous legal cases of boyfriends forwarding photos of their girlfriends (or ex-girlfriends) to other students. Such photos can make their way to the Internet and into the watchful eyes of child porn addicts.

› Monitor e-mails with teachers. It’s sad, but true: Students can be intimidated and bullied by their teachers and school coaches, too. Insist that your young person always copies you, the parent, on any and all messages with their teachers and coaches.

› School policy. Find out if your school has a policy about cyberbullying. Many schools are just starting to develop these policies. Unlike physical or verbal bullying that takes place on school grounds, most cyberbullying takes place outside of normal school hours. Going through your Parent Teacher Organization (PTO or PTA), advocate that your school set a policy for cyberbullying outside of school hours.

› Safe place. Cyberbullying is very real and it is possible that your student could at some point be one of its victims. Ask your school to create a safe place or resource for kids to report cyberbullying - such as a voicemail tip line - and ask your school to invite speakers to address the issue.TheRentersGuide.ca

Let technoLogy

ease the transition of an empty nest

W

e’ve all been there: your child is moving out and it’s a day you never thought would come. Are you ready now that your once-little one is ready to leave the nest? There’s no doubt that it can be a bit scary not having your child close to home. However, more and more parents are realizing what a useful tool technology can be, often easing (if not eliminating) some of the stress associated with the new separation. Whether your child is in another city, or even TheRentersGuide.ca another country, there are many free tools available so you can provide that extra moral support around exam time or share the latest family photos.

TheRentersGuide.ca

Marc Aube, a tech expert at Microsoft Canada has some tips on how you can connect easily with your kids come the fall. • A picture says it all – They may be away from home but that doesn’t mean you have to miss out on the major moments. With Windows SkyDrive you and your student can share stories through your uploaded pictures, allowing you to stay connected on a regular basis. It’s a free and secure online family photo album that can be viewed from anywhere, which is great for the student on the go. • Only a chat away – Set a weekly time to touch base using free tools like Windows Live Messenger or Skype. These are easy ways to check-in, catch up and chat face-to-face for free. Sunday nights may not be the same, but this will help establish a fun new familiar routine that’s great for students on a budget. • It all starts with the PC – At the core of all these tools is a powerful machine. The right PC will bring all the tools together and help you stay connected instantly and easily with your kids. Starting them off with the right machine will make their year smoother and yours a little less stressful.

TheRentersGuide.ca

A new routine can be hard to get used to, but there are plenty of ways to stay connected quickly and easily by harnessing the power of technology. More information on this topic is available at www.windows.ca. NC.

What to look for in an apartment By Jane Herman

A

re you feeling a little overwhelmed by the challenge of trying to find an apartment? Even wading through all of the ads and listings in Renters Guide can be daunting, unless you understand how they are organized. But where do you start? The first criteria in your decision should be price: How much can you realistically afford to spend per month? Most financial planners recommend that your rent (not including extras such as parking, hydro, cable, etc.) should amount to less than 30 per cent of your monthly income. This may be hard to achieve, but thinking about how much you can spend on rent will also help you to set up a budget. Include all expenses you’ll be responsible for each month (food, utilities, telephone, transportation, laundry, parking, etc.) and other, annual or variable expenses, such as clothing, moving expenses, renter’s insurance, savings, recreation, entertainment, etc. The more you spend on rent, the less you’ll have available for other things. Next, determine what area you want to live in. How will you determine where to look? If you are new to the area, you may want to live near friends or relatives, within a certain commuting radius of work or school. If you have children, do you want to live in a particular school district? Are parks and play areas nearby? Is proximity to the transit or a major highway may be a priority Is the area convenient to shopping, library, recreation facilities, entertainment, restaurants, etc. What are the traffic patterns in the neighbourhood? How is the traffic at rush hour? How are the noise levels in the area at different times of the day, and would this be a factor in your decision? With these factors in mind, make a list of several different neighbourhoods in which you could look: Area 1: ________________________ Area 2: ________________________

TheRentersGuide.ca

Area 3: ________________________ Type of accommodation: Many apartments are in highrises. A highrise building is one that is six or more storeys, has elevators, security, laundry TheRentersGuide.ca

facilities, and, frequently, sports and/or recreation facilities and other amenities, as well as efficient electrical, heating and plumbing systems. A walk-up or low-rise would be less than five storeys high, may have no elevator and few conveniences. However, the rent would generally be less at this type of apartment than at a highrise building in the same area. Other kinds of apartments you could rent include: A basement apartment is a basement in a house that has been converted to an apartment. It may have a separate entrance. The apartment may have its own bathroom, kitchen, laundry room and heating system, or it may share those amenities with the rest of the home. A low rise apartment building may also have basement apartments. A duplex, triplex or fourplex is a group of two, three or four apartments together in the same building. Apartment Features Search through the Renters Guide listings to find those that match your criteria. They are organized by area. You should also use Renters Guide companion website, hometrader.ca. It is an excellent source of apartment listings, also organized by area. You can also find potential apartments by walking around or driving through the area you have chosen, or through word of mouth. If a friend or relative is happy living in a particular building, chances are you will be too. When you go to look at apartments, inspect them thoroughly before you sign the lease or give a first month’s rental deposit. Some landlords have a condition checklist on which to record details upon move in and move out. Be sure to inspect walls, floors, bathroom and kitchen faucets and fixtures, appliances, windows, doors, etc. Make sure you note such things as the condition of the property and the building. Note the size and location of the closets. You may want to take along a tape TheRentersGuide.ca measure to see how your furniture might work in the space. If you go through the process carefully, chances are you’ll be more satisfied with your decision after you move in.

Rental Agreements What You Should Know Before you Sign a Lease

W

hen you rent a home or apartment in Canada, the landlord will usually ask you to sign a written rental agreement. This legal contract is also often called a “lease.”

Under the laws of each province and territory, tenants and landlords have certain rights and responsibilities whether they have a written agreement or not. Nevertheless, a written lease agreement can help spell out all the terms you and your landlord want to have covered and agreed to. You may also wish to seek legal advice before accepting the terms. To help you know what to expect, Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation (CMHC) offers the following list of terms that can be found in most rental agreements: • The names of the landlord and tenant(s). • The address of the home or apartment you are renting. • The monthly rent you agreed to pay, with or without utilities, parking, cable television or other services. • The date when the rent is due (for example, on the first day of each month).

TheRentersGuide.ca • The amount and terms of any rent, security or damage deposits you agreed to pay.

• A list of which repairs or upkeep will be your responsibility. • The term of rental period (most rental agreements are usually for one year, but some may be month-to-month or week-to-week). • The conditions for ending or canceling your lease, including financial implications and the amount of advance notice you must give the landlord if you decide to move out (for example, 60 days notice). • The rules or restrictions for subletting the property. • The amount the landlord is allowed to increase the rent in the future. • Any other specific restrictions (such as whether or not you can smoke in the home and whether you can have boarders, pets or a waterbed, etc.). • Details on when and how the landlord can enter your home or apartment. • The procedure for making changes to the contract. • A method for resolving any disputes or disagreements (for example, disputes about late rent payments, damage to the property or eviction). • Contact information for both you and your landlord in case of an

emergency (usually including a phone number, fax and email). For more information or a free copy of CMHC’s Guide to Renting a Home, call CMHC at 1-800-6682642 or visit our website at www. cmhc.ca.

Packing Tips and List Tips to make your move a little easier. Packing TiPs

❏ ❏

Gather boxes in all sizes from friends, neighbors, and stores.

Create a “portable packing kit” with marking pens, a tape measure, packing tape, twine, and scissors. Carry it with you as you pack up items around your home.

❏ ❏ ❏ ❏ ❏ ❏ ❏ ❏ ❏

Reinforce the bottom of boxes with extra tape for added strength.

Don’t move flammable, combustible, corrosive, or explosive items such as paint, gasoline, and ammunition.

Pack a bag of personal items you’ll need during the move (change of clothes, toiletries, medicine, maps, food, and drinks). Keep it in an easy-to-find place when you pack

Collect cushioning material such as bubble wrap, foam pellets, furniture pads, old blankets, plastic bags, tissue paper, newspapers, and small towels to use as padding inside boxes.

Label each box with the name of the room in your new home where it should be placed. List the contents of the box on the side of it. Number the boxes and keep a list of which boxes go in which room in your new home. Label boxes containing fragile items with large red lettering. Place china in plastic bags and stack plates upright on their sides, not flat. Pack your TV, stereo, and computer in their original boxes whenever possible. Keep boxes to 50 pounds or less. Pack heavy items into their own smaller boxes and place lighter items together into larger boxes. (Hint-Don’t pack all your books into one box!)

general moving TiPs

❏ Disconnect and bundle cords on television and stereo components. Label each cord with masking tape and a description of where to connect it.

❏ Plan and measure where you furniture will be placed in your new home. It’s helpful to draw a layout of your new home and sketch in the major furniture pieces.

❏ To save time on moving day, move your boxes from the basement, upstairs, or attic to the main floor prior to the move date. Consider carrying items from the back yard to the front yard or garage ahead of time.

❏ Keep your phone connected through moving day to stay in touch with friends, family and the moving company.

Money Truths

P

ay yourself first. Don’t spend more than you make. The basic rules of money management are simple, but stats show that Canadians aren’t living by them.

According to Statistics Canada, for every dollar of income, the average Canadian owes $1.52 and saves only $0.04. Compared to 1990, when we owed an average of $0.93 cents per dollar and saved $0.13 for every dollar, this trend is going in the wrong direction. In Ontario alone, less than three in 10 people achieve a passing grade for their knowledge of money management, according to a recent study by Investor Education Fund (IEF), Canada’s leading authority on financial literacy education and research.

“Everyone’s financial situation and barriers to money management are different, but the principles of financial planning are universal,” said Tom Hamza, president of IEF. “Following these basic rules in your everyday life can help you reach your financial goals, such as saving money and paying off debt sooner.” Here are IEF’s Universal Money Truths: • Know your money personality. The first step in achieving a financial goal is to understand your attitude toward money, level of financial knowledge and your tolerance for investment risk. • Know what you’re saving for and have a plan to get there. Whether you’re saving for a vacation or paying off a mortgage, the best way to reach a goal is to make a specific plan to achieve it. • Know your cash flow. A budget helps you track where your money goes, keeps your spending in check and finds ways to save more money. Use a budget tracker and update it at least once a year. • Shop around to get the best value for your money. Whether you’re looking for a new credit card or choosing a financial advisor, look at all your options and choose the product or service that gives you the best deal. • Care more about money than anyone else does. It’s up to you to decide how you invest your money, so play an active role in the process. • Be a saver, not a borrower. It’s better to earn interest through your investments than pay it through debt repayments. Borrowing is a fact of life, but balance it out by saving as much as possible. • Understand when it’s too good to be true. Know how to recognize and avoid an investment scam.

Lost and soLd! By Elisa KrovBlit

Going... Going... Gone! It’s the familiar cry at every auction, the moment of truth when battling bidders find out who had the money and the muster to go all the way, and you’ll hear it all night long on Lost and Sold, the new run-away hit reality show on Slice. Lost and Sold is filmed live at an actual auction house (Oakville’s 403 Auction: principalliquidators.com), with a cast of real life characters that make for good TV. The personalities are distinct and each has their own specialty area of buying interest – though they all share the same motivation: making money. Finding the group was a lucky strike, these aren’t actors, they’re not shills and they’re not quiet. They’re a group with chemistry that love the thrill of the hunt, the battle of the bucks and the bang of the auctioneer’s gavel.

that he’s got the nerve to go all the way. Call his bluff, he’s not bluffing. Don’t get in his way because he gets what he wants. He’s a lost luggage guy, and often finds good scores in the wayward baggage because he trusts his system of analyzing the bag’s owner and what the bag’s travels may have been. The system seems to be paying off.

Jamie and Jen (The Brass), own the 403 Auction and they run the show. The pair were auction junkies who started up the 403 Auction house and are known for having the corner on the market for misguided freight in Canada.

Lou (Pistola) is described as a loose cannon by some – actually by several of his cast mates. He’s always out to make the next deal, on the phone, on the move, flying by the seat of his intuition. His intuition has brought him plenty of success, and his background as a pawn shop owner gives him insight into a lot of what sells. This loose cannon is calculated – he usually has a buyer in mind for his big buys, even before the gavel comes down.

Robbie and Kathleen (Mr. and Mrs. Hollywood) are a couple of cool cats who have the amazing ability to divine treasure from trash, even when they don’t know what they’re buying. They once paid $10 for a ‘thing’ that nobody wanted – nobody knew what it was. It turned out to be a telecom board. They sold it for $7,000 and financed a luxury family trip to Disney. “Gotta love it!” says Robbie.

In between auctions, the show follows cast members as they have items appraised and flip a deal. While these buying-and-selling reality shows are very popular right now, this one is fun because of the chemistry of this group. From humourous to boisterous, interesting to intimidating, money talks and bidders heckle every Tuesday night at the auction house.

John (The Killer) has his own drum beat and the beat is loud, humourous and rock’n’roll. He will buy and flip anything and knows what is easy to sell. While he TheRentersGuide.ca doesn’t want to divulge his best score of the year, he says he hit a jackpot on one of his wildcard buys that allowed him to purchase a new car – a nice one at that! He doesn’t mind losing an auction here and there – it’s an interesting strategy. He TheRentersGuide.ca figures it gives people the understanding

Jamie describes what hits the auction floor. “We auction anything and everything, and we’ve pretty much seen it all here.” While some auction houses focus on antiques, others on art, coins, stamps or electronics, their merchandise comes from shipping companies. The merchandise for sale has been lost or misdirected, and while every attempt has been made to reconnect items with their original owners, “there are a million reasons, and for whatever reason

Jamie and Jen

it doesn’t get claimed and ends up here,” says Jamie. “Doing homework is the key,” says Robbie. While the big score from a wildcard find happens often enough to keep business bustling, making a career out of this requires the bidder to know the value of what they’re buying and make sure there is a profit to be made. Some bids are gambles, others are calculated purchases. So while there might be a shipment of coffee makers, a painting or some ‘adult’ merchandise that makes its way into the auction, one of the big draws is the lost and unclaimed luggage. Everyone has their own method for foretelling the contents, but, explains John, the reality is, seven out of 10 bags contain someone’s dirty laundry. It’s those other three... the elusive three that may contain someone’s jewellery, expensive camera, electronics, signed baseball card collection – even cash – that keep keen interest. The bags are sealed shut. Auction house rules allow you to pick up the bag, feel it out and come to your own conclusions – you just can’t open it. The only caveat is that, once you own it, you can’t keep items like weapons, passports, prescription medicine or other dangerous TheRentersGuide.ca or illegal items. You risk a run-in with the law if you do. Two types of shoppers go to auctions, John explains. There’s the career

TheRentersGuide.ca


auctioners, like this cast. “We live and breathe this stuff,” he says. And then there are the personal shoppers “looking for a night out or small dealers looking to supplement their income.” Items can often be picked up quite cheaply. Kathleen jokes that she and her husband have a saying, “Robbie doesn’t pay retail.” While you can’t predict what you’ll find, if you go out to local auctions and do your homework, there’s no reason you can’t furnish your home and find some amazing décor pieces for a small percentage of what you’d pay retail. Kathleen and Robbie purchased a lovely hand-blown glass sculpture for $150. Its actual market value is $8,000. They’re enjoying it for now, but look at that as an investment that just keeps going up, and they can cash it in any time they want. That’s a pretty deep discount. Auctions can be intimidating and auctioneers go a mile a minute, but don’t worry if you sneeze, it won’t be counted as a bid. Lost and Sold offers these tips: Buying like a dealer at auction 1. Do your homework: Visit the auction house online prior to the auction and attend the preview (usually a couple of hours before the sale). Search brand names online and research their resale value on sale sites like EBay. Remember, a dealer is always looking to turn a profit If the resale value is low then leave the item on the table. 2. Have plenty of funds available: Holding the high bid at a sale when you can’t back it up with cash is a big ‘no-no’. You also don’t want to lose out on something with big potential profit because you’re on a

budget. You’ve got to spend money to make money. 3. Remain calm: If you get caught up in the thrill of the competition, you might find yourself paying more than retail. Keep a level head and know your ceiling. Remember you are looking to make a profit. …And whatever you do, don’t keep your card in the air no matter how badly you want to win! You’ll look like a rookie and pay large. 4. Watch and learn: Dealers make a living buying and selling. If you are a rookie, observe a pro – spot the regulars then watch and learn. Notice their technique, they are discreet – they bid with a wink or a subtle nod. They want to buy low without competition. Good dealers earn more in a night than the average person earns in a week and they’d like to keep it that way. 5. Keep your eyes open: Believe it or not some of the most valuable items are overlooked by most bidders. There is always treasure amongst the trash. At auctions bidders buy as-is and where-is. An item that is dirty or used should not be disregarded! Many times the beat up items have value! 6. The real deal: Get to know high end brands versus the fakes. Auctions houses are notorious venues for knock-offs. A real Gucci bag will net more than most people earn in a week but a fake can leave a bidder bankrupt. 7. Buy low, sell high: That’s the object of dealing, so know your market, what sells and what doesn’t. The last thing you want is impossible to sell product on your hands.

8. Be ready to strike like a snake: Auctions can be fast and furious. The pros mean business and they are focused and sharp. You’ll lose out if you get caught up chatting. Auctions are social but good dealers know to keep their eyes on the prize. 9. Win, lose or draw: Every auction is a different story – sometimes you win, sometimes you lose, sometimes you break even. Dealers are risk takers, gamblers. Up one week, down the next. But over time the goods ones come out on top. To be the real deal you’ve got to love what you do and be willing to weather the storms. Buying luggage at auction like a pro 1. Get your hands dirty: Feel the bag and check the weight but remember dirty laundry and books can be heavy. 2. If you can’t decide, let the bag call you: Buying bags is a bit like gambling so treat bags like slot machines and pick the one that speaks to you. 3. Look for an expensive brand of bag: A high value bag can mean high value contents. 4. Be clear how much you are willing to spend: If you don’t spend more than what the bag itself is worth then anything you find inside is gravy. 5. Go for carry-ons: Travellers tend to keep their valuables close at hand so lean towards carry-ons. You may luck out on someone’s jewelry or laptop. 6. Purposeful bags: Hockey bags and industrial cases can be a good bet but chances are you’ll pay big for them. Traveller’s knapsacks and hiker’s bags are notoriously loaded with gear, valuables and often a little stash of cash.

App Allows mobile devices to control home electronics

The Skylink Group puts wireless control of your entire home at your fingertips

W

e know they let you watch TV on the go, surf online, send emails and, oh yeah, make phone calls. But an innovative new tool now also gives you the power to use your mobile device to switch on any light in your home, open your garage door or turn on any other piece of electronic equipment, no matter where you’re located. Technology firm The Skylink Group — which previously introduced Skylink HomeControl, an affordable and easy-to-use system to wirelessly control your entire house — recently launched a mobile application, Skylink HomeControl App, that effectively turns your smartphone, tablet or PC into a remote control. The handy app allows users to control just about anything in their home with the touch of a couple buttons on a virtual keypad, which can be customized to the specific devices they want to be able to access remotely. “Anyone who already understands how to use a mobile device or a computer tablet will be able to use this app easily. That’s the key to getting the greatest benefit from new technologies — making them easy to understand and user friendly,” says Philip Tsui, CEO and the Chairman of Skylink Group. The Skylink HomeControl System is designed for do-it-yourselfers and uses control modules which can be wired out of sight and wireless TheRentersGuide.ca receivers plugged into wall outlets or lamp sockets, even wall switches and dimmers which replace your existing wall switches. For professionals, the Skylinkhome Wireless Control System has modules with three wires that can TheRentersGuide.ca be installed almost anywhere.

The Wireless Control System can be used to control anything electronic, including: Lamps Coffee makers Fans Stereos Fireplaces Ceiling fans Indoor and outdoor lighting Garage doors Security systems Countless other electronic devices and appliances

For those who may not have a smartphone or computer tablet, Skylink also has a remote control — the credit card-sized SkylinkPad — which can be used to wirelessly control devices in your house. In addition to convenience, the Skylink HomeControl System helps users realize significant energy savings. With the touch of a button, you can shut off all of your lights or set up motion sensors to work with the system. The wireless system also uses timers to ensure that lights and electronic equipment can be shut off when they’re not needed. Dimmers also reduce energy usage, contributing to a greener environment and lower electricity bills. About Skylink Group: The Skylink Group understands the needs and concerns of the homeowner in providing a safe and comfortable environment for their family whether they are at home or away. Established in 1990, Skylink Group operates out of Brampton, Ontario. Please visit www.

Moving out for the first tiMe? Don’t forget your renter’s insurance tD insurance poll finDs one-intwo canaDian renters unDer 35 Don’t have renter’s insurances

Old sheets and tOwels, vintage stOre plates, timewOrn furniture – typically when peOple mOve Out fOr the first time, they will take anything secOndhand they can find. Many young people even assume they don’t need renter’s (also known as tenant) insurance because their possessions aren’t very valuable.

TheRentersGuide.ca

But what if a renter accidentally damages their apartment, or if they are robbed and have to replace their possessions on a tight budget? Renter’s insurance is a wise investment, but according to a new poll by TD Insurance, 47% of Canadian tenants under 35 do not have renter’s insurance. TheRentersGuide.ca

“Moving out of your parents’ home for the first time can be very liberating, but it also comes with a lot of financial responsibilities,” says Dave Minor, Vice President, TD Insurance. “For those trying to make ends meet, tenants may be tempted to forgo renter’s insurance to try to cut costs. But consider the cost TheRentersGuide.ca of replacing your laptop or smartphone if you were robbed. Before moving out, it’s important to understand the basics

TheRentersGuide.ca


of renter’s insurance and ensure you have the right coverage in place to protect yourself.” Minor sets the record straight for renters by debunking the five most common renter’s insurance myths: Myth #1: If something happens, it will be covered by the landlord’s policy Nearly one-third of Canadian renters under 35 (32%) incorrectly believe they are covered under their landlord’s insurance policy. But Minor says your landlord’s insurance likely only covers the building you live in and not your personal possessions or your liability for accidents. “If the pizza delivery person slipped on ice outside your apartment building, the negligence would likely lie with the landlord who is responsible for salting the sidewalk,” he says. “However, if they slipped inside your apartment because you didn’t clean up a puddle, you may be liable for their medical bills, lost wages and damages for pain and suffering out of your own pocket.” Myth #2: My roommate has insurance, so I should be covered too since we live together “Generally, renter’s insurance does not cover your roommate and instead only covers your own personal belongings,” says Minor. But if you’re considering purchasing joint insurance with your roommate, Minor warns there are a few things you should consider first: “Renters should discuss with their roommates how they will pay for the policy and also have a clear understanding of what each roommate’s valuables are worth,” he says. “One roommate’s valuables may hold less value than the other roommate - in this case, will the two roommates pay the same contribution TheRentersGuide.ca to the policy? Something else to think about is who will control the policy, making changes and submitting claims.

TheRentersGuide.ca

Knowing each roommate’s role will ensure there are no uncomfortable situations.” Myth #3: The chances of something actually happening are so small it’s not worth the cost “I’ve heard a number of stories about renters who decide to forgo renter’s insurance simply because they don’t think they are at risk, so are willing to take their chances,” says Minor. “But accidents can happen to anyone, anytime, anywhere, and the financial impact can be significant.” Minor says there are a number of common incidences and simple mistakes that are generally covered under renter’s insurance, including: If there is a break-in at your home If you have a party and you accidentally cause damage to your neighbour’s property or your landlord’s property If you forget to turn off your water when you leave your home for the winter holidays, and one of your pipes freezes and bursts Myth #4: Renter’s insurance isn’t affordable (false!) Renter’s insurance can be very affordable, and there are several ways to save. “The cost of renter’s insurance can be as little as the price of two movie tickets, and you will have the peace of mind in

the event that the unexpected occurs,” says Minor. “Purchasing your auto and renter’s insurance with the same insurance provider, or through your student or professional group or alumni association can often yield discounts.” Myth #5: I’m covered under my parents’ insurance policy You may be covered by your parents’ policy if you live away from home while at school, but this coverage can be limited. Speak with your insurance provider to find out what coverage you will need. Renter’s insurance is inexpensive and some parents may decide that it is best if their kids have their own policy instead of extending their own. TD Insurance commissioned Environics Research Group (www.environics.ca) to conduct an online omnibus survey of 1,012 Canadians 18 years of age or older. Responses were collected between February 15 - 21, 2012. TD Insurance offers a wide range of products to help protect clients from the ‘accidents of life’ including credit protection, auto, home, health, life, and travel insurance. With more than 3 million clients, TD Insurance authorized products and services are available through a network of more than 1,150 TD Canada Trust branches, the Internet and telephone.

5 ways

to survive on a student budget

G

etting an education is the best way to get a head start in the job market. You could earn $7,200 more per year with a college diploma, or $23,000 more per year with a bachelor’s degree, compared to a high school graduate. Find out how to plan and pay for school on the web site, CanLearn.ca/ explore. Going to school is expensive, but government loans and grants can help; combined with a practical budget, getting a degree or diploma can be affordable. Sticking to a budget is possible with a lot of practice and a little creativity. Try out these money-saving tips from real students across Canada: • Apply for scholarships and bursaries. Studentawards.com, TheRentersGuide.ca and other web sites, offer many scholarship opportunities. You could get hundreds, or even thousands, of dollars every year to support your education.

• Make your own meals. There are four keys to shopping for cheap food: avoid brand names, buy in bulk, watch for sales, and don’t be afraid to clip coupons. • Walk or bike to get around. It will definitely save you a chunk of change. For longer trips try carpooling or finding a ride-share. • Look good on a budget. Hairdressing and esthetic schools usually offer free services and discounted rates on practice days. You could also buy a less expensive electric rechargeable razor, instead of throwing away disposables. • Keep yourself entertained for less. Borrow free DVDs from the library, or go to the theatre on cheap night. Try soaking up some culture at a TheRentersGuide.ca museum; most offer a discount day or free admission. Every little bit counts. NC

Childproofing challenges By Kim Carlton

Having a baby is an exciting, but a nerve-wracking experience. you want to make sure tHat your little angel is protected at all times. Here are some strategies to Help you keep your Home safe and sound.

TheRentersGuide.ca TheRentersGuide.ca TheRentersGuide.ca TheRentersGuide.ca


quicktips

Make sure your electrical outlets are covered. There are many kinds of outlet covers from ones that just stick into each outlet to outlet wall plates which have a mechanism that slides back – choose the one that is right for you.

Confirm that you have reliable smoke and carbon monoxide detectors. Make sure that the batteries are working.

Use doorknob covers on doors to non-childproofed areas (like the bathrooms and laundry room). Round doorknob covers are easy to find, there are specialized designs to cover the lever style. Baby gates are also an effective solution for keeping kids in or out of a room. Those little coil door stops with the white plastic stopper are a serious choking hazard. Replace them with a safer one-piece version or a rubber bumper at knob level instead. Those little white plastic stoppers are seem innocuous but often seen in the pediatric emergency rooms.

Don’t use toys or pillows in the crib, especially with young babies - your baby could suffocate. Crib bumper pads are also questionable and, though not proven, have been suggested to have a connection with suffocation and SIDS Never use an electric blanket for a child (could cause a fire).

Never leave a child unattended in the bathtub. Drowning can occur in seconds, and mere inches of water pose a risk.

Faucet covers help avoid burns and decrease the chance of your child knocking their head on the faucet. Make sure your bathtub has a non-skid mat or pads to avoid slips. Remove all soap, hair products and shaving items from tub edges and ledges. Some shampoos - like dandruff specialty shampoos - are toxic. You can use a baby tub inside the bathtub - one with baby slings are especially helpful with infants.

Consider a toilet seat lock so your child can’t stick their head in there, or better yet, throw things in there. Plumber visits to snake the drain don’t come cheap.

Lock up all medications, alcoholic beverages, chemicals and cleaning products. Make sure matches and lighters are out of reach. Use cabinet locks to secure these items.

Make sure electrical appliances are stored away from counter edges and water sources. Roll up any cords and wires. Check to see that Ground Fault Interrupters (GFIs) are installed near all sinks and tub.

Make sure cords for blinds are not tied together at the bottom (this is a strangulation hazard). Many shades and TheRentersGuide.ca blinds have been recalled due to the strangulation hazard posed by the cord, check yours.

Use a fridge lock if you have an extra fridge in the garage or basement. Consider oven locks and stove knob covers in the kitchen. Remove any fridge magnets small enough to be swallowed. Magnets in the digestive system can be extremely dangerous and easily cause a blockage

Cover the fireplace with a secure screen, the glass of gas fireplaces can get extremely hot, make sure that children can’t get close enough to suffer severe burns.

If you have a swimming pool, make sure that it is protected by a fence or secure cover that effectively keeps kids out .

Make sure knives and sharp items are in an area where kids can’t access them.

Check toys for broken parts/bits that are chocking hazard or sharp. Keep small toys for older children (like figurines, game board pieces, and small building blocks) away from your baby. Occasionally check recall lists for toys and baby gear as even the most reputable company often finds a flaw that could pose a safety risk to your child.

Stores like Toronto’s Kiddie Proofers (www.kiddieproofers. com) and even retailers like Sears and BabiesR’Us (www. babiesrus.com) sell a variety of childproofing products. There are also companies like www.babyproofers.ca that will come to your home find solutions to your specific needs. Do your research and shop around to find the best approach for your wee ones.

5 tips for decorating

small spaces by lisa canning

Small SpaceS are more and more common,

and making these spaces work can be a challenge. With careful space planning and ingenious multi-functional products, you can have all the function and style in any square footage. TIp #1: STarT WITH a rIGHT-SIZed SoFa The sofa is often a great place to start when planning a small space, as it usually takes up the most mass, and it is also the easiest piece to purchase incorrectly. A sofa that is too large in a given space can feel cumbersome. Conversely, a sofa that is too small can feel like dollhouse furniture. Luckily, many retailers make it easier to make the right choice by carrying apartment-sized, or condo-appropriate pieces, which are often smaller-scale translations of their most popular lines. And of course, many apartment/condo-sized sofas can also be purchased with a sofa bed option to give you the flexibility of creating a guest room in your small space. TIp #2: USe clear FUrnITUre What’s great about furniture made out of glass or acrylic is that it doesn’t take up much visual space. A ghost chair or a waterfall table will give you an instant modern update and provide great function while keeping the space feeling light. In spaces that have gorgeous large windows, place pieces that are clear directly in front, since they won’t obstruct the view. TIp #3: Wall-moUnTed lIGHTInG A layered lighting plan is something I always recommend TheRentersGuide.ca to clients, but in a small space this approach is especially advantageous. Rather than opting for a floor lamp with mass, weight and that takes up floor area, sconces give you ambient lighting while saving space. I love the architectural detail sconces provide and often use them on either end of aTheRentersGuide.ca gallery wall or sofa.

TIp #4: WorK WITH pIeceS THaT are mUlTIFUncTIonal In a space that might be too small for a home office, or a formal dining room, I have some great innovative products to share. The first is the Functional Coffee Table from BoConcept. At first glance, it looks like a sleek, minimal coffee table. But with an easy lift, it reveals a desk-height table and ample storage. Storage will always be an issue in small spaces, so anything that will serve a function and provide storage is a great addition. Another incredible product on the market is the Lacuna table by VNO Designs. This innovative product begins as a piece of customizable art on the wall. With the release of a latch, the art piece lowers to reveal a concealed leg and becomes a dining table for five. For people who don’t formally entertain often, or for those living in really limited space, this is a unique space-saving solution. TIp #5: WorK WITH SmarT SToraGe SYSTemS Great interior storage is just as important as utilizing multi-functional storage. Drawer dividers, shelf dividers and small storage boxes are great tools to use to increase your storage space. The more levels you can create within a drawer, the more items can be stored and easily found. I love using small stackable, acrylic storage compartments to divide my drawers. Style doesn’t stop at the exterior of a piece – allow your furniture to function at its best by investing in interior organization.

THE IMPORTANCE OF

THE ANNUAL INSPECTION B y Te d Whi T ehead

O

One of the major reasons why the Federation of Rentalhousing Providers of Ontario (FRPO) created the Certified Rental Building Program (CRBP) was to help ensure a good quality of life for tenants in certified buildings. One of the program’s Standards of the Practice is that the property manager must carry out an annual suite inspection program at each building. The inspection is for the purpose of determining whether or not the rental unit is in a good state of repair, fit for habitation, has working smoke alarms, and complies with health, safety, housing and maintenance standards.

Apartment buildings that qualify under the program comply with the conditions stipulated in the Residential Tenancies Act, which protects renters’ safety and privacy. Interestingly, this Act also outlines tenant responsibilities, and there are many. It’s a matter of respect that has to go both ways to make a building work well. One example is providing access to your apartment when necessary, especially for the purposes of an annual suite inspection. Your property manager (landlord) must give you 24 hours written notice of entry, stipulating the reason and the time (which has to be between 8 a.m. and 8 p.m.). He/she should be able to expect co-operation on your part with TheRentersGuide.ca proper notification. Remember that although your apartment is your “home,” it actually belongs to someone else who has the right to protect that investment and ensure the best welfare of all. TheRentersGuide.ca

“There are valid reasons why a property manager may need to enter your apartment,” says Lynzi Michal, FRPO’s manager of Operations and Member Services.“It may be a case of completing necessary repairs or replacing items, checking the smoke alarm and replacing the battery, or conducting an annual inspection that determines immediate and preventative maintenance needs. This is a very important part of running an efficient and safe apartment building.” A potential mortgagee or insurer of the apartment complex may also need to look inside the apartments to ensure that it is fit for habitation and complies with health, safety, housing and maintenance standards. “Renters also need to be aware that a landlord may enter a rental apartment at any time without written notice in cases of emergency, or if tenants consent to entry at the time they are approached,”

says Vince Brescia, FRPO’s president. “When there is a good cause, it benefits everyone involved to co-operate with entry.” Most apartment dwellers want to live in an apartment-home that is being properly maintained by the property manager. The annual suite inspection program helps to ensure the quality of rental product is being consistently maintained. Prospective renters are well advised to ensure that the apartment building they are considering to live in carries out annual inspection program as part of their ongoing operations and maintenance activities. You will also find valid information at frpo.org, the site of the Federation of Rental-housing Providers of Ontario, which created the Certified Rental Building Program (CRBP) to help apartment-seekers find buildings that meet certain standards of quality and service. For more information visit crbprogram.org
