If you have ever tried to rent in the 6ix, chances are you have some stories to tell. Whether it be about cockroaches becoming your new best friend, or holding together your fridge with duct tape, you probably aren't alone.
These Toronto renting TikToks perfectly show the horrors that some tenants have to deal with on the daily.
However, most Torontonians are more than happy to put up with a few inconveniences if it means they get to live in the 6ix.
Nothing screams Toronto more than appliances being held together with duct tape
Things in our over-priced downtown apartment that just make sense 😌💯 #greenscreenvideo #fyp #foryou #downtown #toronto #thingsinmyapartment
It seems that almost everything in this apartment is held together with duct tape, including the fridge and windows. And just when you thought things couldn't get any worse, there is also a bug that lives in the clock on the stove.
Working laundry machines are a privilege
when ur landlord doesnt fix ur heat or washer or the leak from ur skylight or take u seriously when ur apartment is broken into :))))) #toronto #rent
If you end up with a washer and dryer in your apartment, you can consider yourself one of the lucky ones. However, you shouldn't always expect them to work.
Bugs can easily become your new roommates
random things in my toronto apartment that just make sense 🙆♀️ #homegoals #randomthingsthatjustmakesense #voiceover #hometour #fyp
While holes in the floor and stove top may sound like a horror story to you, having little critters and bugs as roommates are just part of the norm.
When you finally move out, you won't be missing those random stains
I’m doing real well #apartment #toronto #fyp
Part of becoming a Toronto renter includes knowing that other people probably called your unit home before you did. This means that you can often find random stains that you end up just pretending don't exist.
Sometimes you just need to make the best out of what you have
romanticizing the 'laundry room' in our overpriced toronto apt #fyp #foryou #foryoupage #toronto #torontoreal #torontoapartment #aesthetic #laundry
While everything in your apartment unit might not be perfect, sometimes you just got to make the most of what you have. This includes making a TikTok video romanticizing a laundry room that looks like it belongs in a horror movie.
Some units are just living in a world of OSHA violations
Late to this trend, but we’re getting renovicted and I’m going to miss this crusty apartment so much #toronto #lgbt #thingsinmyhousethatjustmakesense
While some units only have minor inconveniences, others can present more of a safety issue. From leaky sinks to no smoke detectors, some rental units are no laughing matter.
Who needs a functional bathroom anyways?
#ohno #toronto #torontoapartmenttour #ontario #dougford
As long as you have a toilet that flushes and some running water, do you really need a good door that opens and closes properly?
Low ceilings and barely any natural light are just normal things to deal with
that high-class Toronto living #toronto #torontoapartment #apartment #fyp
Living in a basement apartment is often the only way someone on a budget can afford to live in the city. However, this means that you are often doomed to have low ceilings and little natural light.
