FMTA Helps Tenant Get Building Audited

155 Springhurst building

The FMTA has recently helped a tenant get maintenance done on their building through the help of Parkdale Activity Recreation Centre (PARC) and the City's Municipal Licensing and Standards Municipal Residential Audit Building (MRAB) Program.

A tenant came in complaining of extremely bad maintenance at their building and showed a video of the building captured on Youtube.  The video can be watched here:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F5mGAPt6WA8

The FMTA recommended the tenant ask the MRAB program to audit the building for maintenance issues.  The tenant, with the help of staff members from PARC, appealed to the program to audit the building and on May 28th, 2010, the building was audited by the MRAB team.

The City's Municipal Licensing and Standards division issued four work orders to the building having found 27 deficiencies in the common areas.

While 10 of the deficiencies have been closed, 17 remain outstanding as of October 22, 2010.
