I would strongly advise anyone who is considering renting from Urban Spaces Ltd. to reconsider. This company lacks professionalism and their standards of service as landlords are horrific. I rented from them at 1235 Queen Street and had to leave as the unit was infested with mice. There are openings in the foundation and the soffits that birds and mice are entering the unit through and Urban Spaces refused to fix the issue. A professional exterminator had to be brought in after several weeks of an infestation. The company did not provide any compensation for the duration of the time rent was paid out to live in an unfit rental unit and they also kept my damage deposit. The grounds are not maintained (weeds and lawn were mowed once over the entire summer) and the washer and dryer frequently breaks and the room that houses it is an absolute dive. I assume this company gets away with their business practices simply because they rent to students and take advantage of the annual turn over and lower standards being demanded by students. I had several maintenance issues throughout my time renting as well and overall had a very negative experience. I caution anyone from partaking in any business with this company. From showing up to sign the lease at their ‘office’ – a sketchy, dark, behind closed doors, old room where they chain smoked cigarettes and I felt uneasy and unsafe to leaving after paying $1350 to them for nothing, I wish I would have known not to get involved with Urban Spaces. Yes, 1235 Queen St is a cute little ‘cottage’ as they call it but it’s seriously not worth it…
