5 Conversations to Have With Your Roommates Before You Move Out

workplace-1245776_1920.jpg

If you have roommates, you probably know the standard move-in conversations that need to happen to ensure harmonious living. How will rent be collected and paid, whose television is going in the living room, and are peanut butter jars considered communal? But it's important to make sure those A-plus communal living communication skills don't fizzle come move-out time. Here are five convos you should have with your roommate(s) before you all move out (plus one if you're the one cutting out early).

My Place Realty helping conserve the Chimney Swift Bird habitat

My Place Realty has received an unexpected guest at one of their Wolseley apartment properties. The Fleetwood apartment at 129 Lenore Street has become the home for one of Canada’s most endangered species, The Chimney Swift Bird. My Place Realty has taken the initiative to help conserve the Chimney Swift habitat with the assistance of Nature Manitoba (formerly Manitoba Naturalist Society) and has recently formed the Manitoba Chimney Swift Initiative (MCSI).

 
 

This rare species of birds originally like to nest in hollow trees and rock crevasses. However, for decades now since land development and clearing, hollow trees have become increasingly rare and this now endangered bird has adapted to find other places to nest – like brick and stone chimneys. Thus, how it got its unique name. Each Spring, the sooty bird arrives in Canada near late April and early June to begin its breeding cycle. Bird watchers and onlookers alike can usually see these birds at dusk. They are often described as a small dark-colored bird in a shape of a boomerang or cigar with a narrow and pointed curved wings. You can hear these birds as they omit what is described as a high-pitch chirping sound that is never-ending and rarely fly alone. These birds can frequently be seen near bodies of water because of the abundance of insects.

Apartment Tips: 5 Tips For Responsibly Signing a Sublease

Apartment Tips: 5 Tips For Responsibly Signing a Sublease

By this point, it isn’t even news anymore that rent prices in major cities are through the roof. Over the last ten years, the number of young adults who live by themselves has decreased significantly to a measly 9%. Plus, almost half of millennials say that they plan to move again the upcoming year. All of this combined makes for an interesting rental market, specifically in the realm of subleasing (PS – if you’re trying to rent out a room, find a new roommate, or sub-lease your place, you can do that on PadMapper now).

Whether you’re a first time sub-leaser or trying to find your fourth place in two years, you can never be too careful when making your move. Here are a few things to remember while going through the process…

Easy Ways to Hang a Tapestry In 20 Minutes or Less

Easy Ways to Hang a Tapestry In 20 Minutes or Less

Let's talk tapestries. They're the perfect solution for that big empty wall, for helping sound proof thin walls, for replacing headboards when headboards aren't an option, and they're typically pretty renter-friendly art. Most can be hung with a simple dowel rod and a nail or two. Maybe you just inherited a piece from your grandmother, or stumbled upon a brilliantly patterned textile at the flea market, or maybe you made your own wall hanging. Either way, you'll probably need to hang it. Here are a few easy ways to get that beautiful masterpiece up on the wall for all the world (or at least your houseguests) to see...

Most of the time, I'm okay with skirting around a landlord's rules and will happily drill holes to hang art and curtains. However, every now and then, you meet a landlord who's such a stickler, you wouldn't even dare bring a drill into the apartment. If you find yourself in such a situation, these damage-free ideas for hanging curtains will help you keep your privacy—and your security deposit...
