$700 Canadian Artist seeks rental (Toronto)

Easy going painter and artist looking for a tentative long term rental in the GTA. I'm 43 and originally from Victoria BC. Currently on ODSP because of shoulder and back issues but I do work independently on a part time basis. My usual routine if not working is pretty simple. I'm not a party guy and I don't do drugs or smoke. I don't play loud music or impose on others either, and I expect the same amount of respect. Typically I'll be on my laptop with headphones on, or outside working on a project. Because I am a painter I am willing to work out a deal if you need house work done. I have run many renovations and have considerable electrical and drywall experience as well. I'm looking for a long term friendly rental but only on a pay as you go basis, no first and last mumbo jumbo. I'm old school like that, because in the past when I've given notice, the landlord always goes out of their way to make your life miserable so you move out early. Happens every time. I would always give 30 days notice but the reality is that I would not be leaving unless I was being driven to leave. So if your not a psychopath and you get what I'm saying then we should be pretty compatible. $700 is my max and that should include everything. If I can get some decent painting gigs and money starts flowing like wine, then I don't mind chipping in extra here and there. I'm not cheap when I have money so. I also have no problem with a cleaning schedule/assignment. What you get from me is a trouble free tenant with rent always there and on time. I have traveled all across Canada and the U.S. and have lived with many types of people and cultures. (Russian, Chinese, Trinidad, African, Philippines, Latino/Spanish etc). I love different cultures and foods. I'm also a pretty good cook too.

Below is a simple list of 5 "don'ts" If you answer yes to any of them then we are definitely not compatible:::

Your a hoarder
You drink or smoke pot every day
Your gay and you want a "special arrangement"
A warm place in the winter is an issue for you
You own a pitbull, have tons of tattoo's and constantly play heavy metal

As you can tell I'm pretty cautious about moving in with new people cause I know from experience just how many maniac's are out there, infact about 50% of the responses I get are from people who get "triggered" by my list. If your one of the few rare people that like what you read, then please respond with relevant details about you in addition to the place. I think that's fair.
