Jesse Gubb: Serial Illegal Subletting, Turning Homes into Hostels

Jesse Gubb claimed that he wanted to rent out the beautiful Toronto home for himself and his family. But once he moved in, he began his real career as a serial fraudster. He began turning the home into a hostel, illegally subletting space and cramming 20 to 25 people into the 4 bedroom home.

“It was horrifying,” says Verma. “I barely recognized it as my own home. Walls had been put up everywhere. We couldn’t tell which room was which. The basement, which had been renovated the year before, was unrecognizable.”

Since 2013, he has fraudulently secured leases for at least four houses and rented them out to as many people as he could squeeze in. Based on his Lakeview earnings, multiplied by four houses, he would have been raking in roughly $200,000 a year.
