    I believe you would be required to let them know once the baby is born and living there, but I don't believe you are obliged to let them know beforehand.

    Basically, all occupants typically need to be recorded on the lease, and thus changing occupants will change the terms of the lease. But the landlord is obliged to accept any reasonable requests for changes in this manner - and having your new baby live there with you is obviously a reasonable change.

    I didn't specifically tell our Agent, but I worked for the same company so she knew anyway

    I would as a courtesy. We did with DD. I just mentioned it at an inspection once we we telling people. Then next lease renewal, I just wrote DS in and will do the same with DD as well.

    I think technically you should but I wonder how many people actually think/remember to?

    It might depend on your real estate what their policy is as ours needed to put bub on the lease. Keep in mind it is illegal (in Queensland at least) to discriminate against tenants for marital status, race, religion etc as well as having children so they can't evict you for having a baby.
