    TBH im not really worried what he does with the dog, im sure he has a friend stop by to feed and water it. Also it would be safe from intruders with the dog there. But at the end the day im more worried about who is going to be the best option to pay the rent in full, on time. My reasoning is leaning towards option B

    I would ask why they where late a few times? How late where they?
    Why are they being made to move?
    If I felt comfortable with the answers then go for it.

    Otherwise it's plan B.

    Haven't read all of the replies, but with option B I would be hesitant that he may sublet the other bedrooms?

    I'm not sure is that is a likely thing in ur area, however with mine workers it is common.

    How many times was option A in arrears? Was it a frequent thing? Or maybe just once or twice a year when rego or another big bill came in? Because that is understandable, happens to the best of us.

    Have u spoken to option A's employers? Is their work long term and guaranteed? Fruit picking is only seasonal work isn't it?

    If option A has a promise of long term work and the rental payments weren't a constant issue then I would go with them.

    Tenant B

    He sounds like a stable, reliable tenant and has a great rental history. I would always pick the best tenant from a business point of view, it may sound harsh but i'd rather not take a gamble when renting out out a house.

    I would chose option A. I would give them a chance it sounds like they need someone to give them a fair go. I doubt option B would have any problems getting rental.

    I would go with option B. I had the similar situation where we rented our house to a family we knew of... wern't friends, but we knew each other. turned out bad.

    I will ring the real estate tomorrow and ask about tenant A. Dp and i have been discussing and he is leaning towards option B too.

    Why does one man need a three bedroom house. The family sound perfectly fine, depending on how late they were with their arrears. They probably need the space etc.
