Rental of the week: somewhere around Eglinton and Falmouth

Some landlords are on weird power trips. A few months back, we featured a place where you couldn't cook meat, which I thought was a bit much. But I guess if the smell of BBQ makes you gag, then whatever. eglinton and falmouth avenue torontoThis landlord, however, is on a totally different level. In the listing, it outlines the rules, including the standard "no smoking" and "no pets." But it adds "no alcohol."eglinton and falmouth avenue torontoSeriously, how are you supposed to deal with living in this hovel if you can't drink your way through it? 

Also, just so we're clear, a landlord can't legally enforce an alcohol ban. That's not something they have the power to do.

eglinton and falmouth avenue torontoI'm really curious as to just how many mattresses are on the bed. My guess is at least three.

But, with all that being said, rent is only $800 a month, so... dry year in 2020?eglinton and falmouth avenue toronto
