This is a little off topic but I don't know anyone in vancouver and I frequent this site pretty often so I figured you folks might be able to help.
I'm planning on moving to van really soon, but problem is while I'm down there, I've got no place to stay. I've heard that most the apartments in van do a check on your social insurance number, and if you're not working they won't let you in the building. Unfortunately, I'm currently unemployed but I have plenty in my savings so I'm not financially worried and won't be for a while, but of course in van I will be looking for work asap to avoid that problem.
So do any of you know any apartment buildings that DON'T require you to be employed to reside there? Like perhaps a place that'll just take a month or 2 in advance rent payment or damage deposit or whatever?
I really don't know a single soul in van so if any of you guys know of a 1 bedroom apt, or bachelors suite around 500-600 a month that'll let me stay with just the payment advances then that'd be superb. I just wanted to add again that I will be looking for work as soon as I get into town, but getting a job takes time no?
I'd really appreciate any help you guys can offer. Thanks in advance.
