As the Vancouver rental market continues to pose its challenges, now one landlord is requesting that his future tenants not cook much, not have friends over, and barely be home.
For $1,400 per month renters of this suite will have a home close to Commercial Drive, but no laundry, parking, Hydro, internet or TV.
The ad on Craigslist posts a series of specific qualifications for the ideal people to fill the two bedroom suite.
“Our ideal tenant would not cook much (only because the smell travels upstairs directly into our living room) and we are vegetarians so we don’t like the smell of meat either.”
They also suggest the tenant shouldn’t play loud music, party, or have “many friends over,” but must also be okay with hearing the three-year-old upstairs running around from time to time.
The ad discloses that one of the bedrooms faces East 1st Avenue, and “the sound of vehicles will always be present.”
The other room is 100 square feet in size.
