    • An FAQ is a Frequently Asked Question and its normal answer.

 

Existing Tenants - FAQs

Everyone should read the following sections

Q: What is the Termination/Cancellation Policy for Student Housing

A: It is not the normal process for a tenant to not honour their contract with us.  However, on the rare occasion that this might happen, it is best for everyone involved to understand the 'rules' that we will follow and will enforce.

 

If, at some point in time, you decide that you must cancel early (i.e. prior to the agreed to end date of your lease agreement) AND we agree to allow it, it is only logical to realise that it is going to cost you.

When a contract is broken, there are costs involved.  It costs the landlord, it costs the property owner, so it should and will cost you the tenant.  If you are the one who is desiring to break your contract, you will need to take the responsibility for this contract break.  

Stuff happens.  We understand this.  However, we believe that it is appropriate and fair that if you cause the costs, you will be expected to pay for the costs.

  

It is important for you to read the cancellation policy prior to signing your lease agreement.

A: No open flames are allowed within the residences.

Q: Are there C02 detectors?

Q: Is smoking permitted within the residences or your room?

Payment Processing Methods

Payments made within the Online Portal

At Wolverine Property Management we have teamed up with Property Vista (our Online Portal partner), with Blue Pay Canada and with Payment Pad. 

Currently, the following payment methods are available through our Online Portal:

  • ELECTRONIC FUNDS TRANSFER (EFT)
  • VISA DEBIT
  • VISA
  • MASTERCARD
  • AMERICAN EXPRESS
  • DIRECT DEBIT (DIRECT BANKING)
  • MONEYGRAM

Occasionally we have found that as a factor of where you are geographically located, some payment methods may not work.  This is often is because of

international payment rules that we and our partners have no control over.  If this happens to you, just try another payment method.  We also have available

the below types of payments.

 

Traditional Payment methods (payments made outside of the Online Portal)

  • E-Transfers - The details
  • Cheques / Money Orders in Canadian funds
  • Cheques / Money Orders in US or other funds

For these traditional methods - any payments in a currency other than Canadian funds will be converted to Canadian funds upon receipt.  Shortages

in the realised Canadian amount must be corrected by the one paying.  In these circumstances, we will email you documentation showing the original funds and their converted to Canadian funds value.  We will show the shortage.  We expect the shortage to be corrected quickly.  Wolverine Property

Management reserves the right to refuse any NON-Canadian payments.

Cleaning

Q: Is a vacuum or a broom included?

A: No

A: The resident of that bedroom.

 

Q: Who cleans the common spaces – halls, stairways, entrance?

Q:  Is it a problem if the dirty dishes in my kitchen cover all the available counters and sinks?

A:  Yes this is a problem.  On a couple of levels.  It isn't sanitary to leave dirty dishes all over the food prep space.  It isn't fair to others who are sharing your space.  If you leave a mess long enough then, sometimes this can draw visitors of the pest variety.

It is really important that all Tenants who are considering Sub-Leasing their room read the information located in our Sub-Lease Section.  The information contain there is very helpful.
