Vancouver is one step closer to having an online database for renters.
A motion is going before council next week calling for the creation of a searchable rental database.
Mayor Gregor Robertson calls it a necessary tool for Vancouver renters, adding it will them avoid negligent landlords.
Robertson says the city already collects data on the history and safety compliance of building owners, and the goal is to make that information more accessible.
The idea for the database comes from New York City, where a similar website was launched last year.
