    Yep. I think if people are going to let their pet damage a place they are the type of people who wouldn't look after it properly to start with - animals or not.

    I agree too, lucyb and oh dear and as land lords, when we have 'good tenants' we always hope they'll sign up with a long lease, however in our experience the majority of prospective tenants ask if they can have a 12 month lease and some even 6.

    I think it is up to them but I would do what we had to do. I have two cats and I signed an agreement to replace anything they damaged. So I'll be forking out for new screens if I move out, but to me that's 100% fair and I encourage any landlord considering to do the same.

    I'm in QLD so I guess it depends on the state but if I owned a house I would allow pets on strict instructions and see if that agreement holds legal grounds. Up here I'm sure they are upheld.

    I think it's reasonable for a landlord to say no pets. It is after all their investment.

    I'd only do it if I was desperate.

    I think as the landlord you have the right to decide either way. It's your property in the end, not the renter. If you don't want pets in your house then it should be your decision. I dont think thats unreasonable since you pay the mortgage etc
    Personally I wouldn't allow pets at all. And I own a dog but I own my house, not rent so it's my decision.

    Great topic 
    I personal think that that I'f the renters are clean and are willing to do what ever it takes to rectify any problems the pet makes then I say go ahead.
    Most rentals have 3-6 month Inspections, I'f at those inspections the yard I's I'n shambles and the tenants havnt done anything about it then issue a warning that they have to fix it or either get rid of the animals or vacate the property entirely.
    As a renter who isn't I'n the position to buy It really upsets me that we can't bring a dog Into our loving little family for our daughter to grow up with. 

    I think it's the owners choice. Simple.

    We are renting and our current LL has allowed us to have a bird, 2 cats and soon to be a puppy.

    The only reason we are getting a dog is because once our lease is up we are buying. Otherwise I wouldn't have got a dog because it is WAY too hard to find a pets allowed house.

    can I ask a question off thread probably should start my own

    with a 22% vacancy rate in some Melb areas would it be reasonable to offer a lot less rent if you did not have pets when looking for a new property
