However, potential tenants (two maximum) should be aware there are a few rules regarding this particular place.
Firstly, men need not apply, as the listing apparently applies to “Females only!!!!” (Yes, that is four exclamation marks).
Need to know a little bit more?
“$600 Plus No Security Deposit Plus All Amenities Included For A Total Non Negotiable $600,” the ad on Padmapper says.
Those who are interested must “must read understand agree and submit the following contract If they desire renting this home.”
The contract includes points such as no more than six houseguests at a time, the requirement to purchase your own set of house keys, and the stipulation that “hands [are] washed with soap when coming home from work or recreation.”
The listing also states that you must “use extreme caution and be clean when painting the walls,” and that “absolutely everything must be kept clean, no exceptions.”
Okay, fair enough. After all, nobody wants to live with someone who’s messy.
The ad also delves into rules around things like fridge arrangements (specifically, which side of the fridge you’re allowed to use), when its acceptable to play “loud” music, and how to properly store your bike.
Potential tenants “must not break the law,” and “must be of peace and good behaviour,” the ad states.
The place is “420 Tobacco Liqour (sic) friendly,” but “No other drugs [are] allowed.” Parties “must be granted by permission by Andre,” the post reads.
Other stipulations include the fact that “laundry must remain clean.” Also, you can’t move furniture, “without first asking Andre.”
If you’re still on the fence about whether this place is right for you, the post closes with one quick reminder:
“You will not find a home at this price for this level of quality,” it reads. “Contact now Before Its (sic) too late.”
