Practical resources, smart ideas and creative solutions for tenants and landlords in BC

Hello you. Let's talk.

I was once a tenant. Not surprising as there are 1.5 million people who rent in BC. That is about 30% of our population. Who knew! I’m now a landlord (one of the good ones) and am here to be your virtual wingman when it comes to dealing with rental stuff.

Maybe you’re asking yourself…

Why would I want to hear what a landlord has to say?

That’s a great question. If you consider that I have been in your shoes and now have over 15 years of insider knowledge, it does sort of make sense that I could possibly have some valuable things to say. Wouldn’t you agree?

I know how most landlords think and can give you some creative suggestions to help you get out of a rent increase or break a lease, or some tips to getting the rental you want, and how to rent a place with a pet.

So read what you need by selecting a topic on the right. 

Hi there.
