The post shows an advertisment for a furnished townhouse basement in Thorncliffe Park, with the would-be landlord trying to get as much mileage out of the unit as possible.
Each bedroom shows multiple single beds for its tenants to sleep in, and not only that, but the lease also required $600 up front as well as an additional $600 for a security deposit — which is is illegal in Ontario.
More baffling was the list of restrictions that came with the unit itself.
No alcohol, no pets and no parking were on prominent display alongside even more concerning rental limitations.
Specifically, that potential renters could only be students — and as the post dictated — “student girls.”
I remember thinking I’d move out and live on my own. Then I realized doing that without roommates is impossible. Now they want us to share bedrooms with strangers? Is this even legal?
