I recently rented a suite at 2020 50th ave sw from Mark Hawkins. This man plays under the guise of a realtor, however he is not. This suite is a basement suite in altadore, that supposedly pet friendly. However, it is not. He did not stick to the terms of the lease. He failed to fix things that were a safety concerns. He reneged on the terms of my lease in concerns to what areas I was welcome to and what amenities I could use. He refused to allow me a personal mail area and even went through my mail. He harmed my personal items and spoke to me in a threatening manner when I asked him to stop. I would also like to state that upon further investigation it was discovered that this area is not zoned for leasing. When I mentioned this he refused to adhere to my one year lease. This resulted in him stealing $1400 from me in terms of a deposit and last month lease. When I threatened police involvement he taunted me saying that they would ignore my request. I am posting this in hopes that no one else gets scammed by this abusive slumlord.
DO NOT RENT FROM MARK HAWKINS AT 2020 50TH AVE SW
