    Default pets and renting

    I might add that those purchases are on average wages.
    Hate to break it to you, but buying a McMansion is not at the top of everyone's priorities.

    Renting does not entitle you to do what you want with a property and most people on here are hesitant about hiding pets. Not out to trash houses at any cost. People rent for a variety of reasons.

    Good for you for buying a house. Your priorities do not apply to anyone but yourself.

    Owning a home isnt everything, its only a material possession after all. And well the bank owns it anyway until its paid for.

    Our 'priority' right now is living off one wage which allows me to stay at home with our daughter and future children

    Default pets and renting

    To answer the OP, I think it's risky to not have pets listed on the lease. What if you're found out and asked to remove the dog. You might not know who your house owner actually is. They might live right over the street! It would be quite easy to be caught out i think.

    We are probably going to be in a situation where we have to rent soon. We are wanting to build a new house but won't be able to afford to stay in current house while building. We have 2 dogs and 2 cats. Ill be listing them all. I wonder if we'll actually find someone to take us all!!

    So pretty much it seems that a landlord can say yes to pets, then pets will be allowed.

    Landlords can say No Pets but the tenants will just hide them on the property anyway...

    So really there shouldn't even be an option to have or not have pets

    Yeah you might be helping the landlord pay his/her mortgage.
    But they still pay rates, fix things on the property, replace hot water systems, fix lights etc, water access charges, pay house insurance, Pay real-estate fees, our landlords are about to get all the window locks changed, security bars etc fitted to the front of the house to comply with new security regulations for rentals in our area, they pay for any emergencies ie; electrical faults.
    There are many extra fees for owning a home than what you pay in rent, if you rent and your "Already paying someone's else mortgage!" Then why not buy a house yourself?
    I sure know I can afford a mortgage but I sure as hell can't afford the other costs right now!
    You might pay rent yes, but that doesn't mean the owners are paying nothing for the house you reside in.
    Respect it.

    My landlord is fine with our dogs and they are strictly outside only. He's said so long as they stay outside he's cool with it he also doesn't mind our 3 cats. 2 are inside &outside cats Locked in laundry of a night come and go as they please bells on collars clean desexed flead wormed etc we have an outside cat by his own choice desexed clean flead wormed etc has his bowls on front veranda and sleeps on chair out front. We were lucky to gets good landlord pet wise but repair wise he's terrible we've needed a new oven for a year now leaking gas line n grill takes your eyebrows off and paint coming off the house carpets here were originally green a long time ago they're now cream. The paint is chipping off the walls etc so needs attention. But I've found I'd rather have a good landlord who fixes things than pets. I'd happily give up my dogsled much as I love them for a decent landlord who fixes things when needed

    The owners would be paying those things regardless of the tenant.....so the tenant should feel no guilt or responsibility for those things.
    Again the "why not buy a house yourself" is brought up *sigh* NOBODY has said its easy to own a home..nor has anyone said its their right to do what they see fit with the home. Not one person hiding a pet has said that its their right to bring a pet onto the property because they are paying rent.......they know its wrong, thats why its being HIDDEN.

    This thread has really gone off on a tangent

    Exactly this. It's not a group of crims laughing in the face of landlords about their hidden cats.

    I know quite a few people who have done it and there was never any trouble with the real estate so if more people are doing it then people realize, obviously those people are making sure there is no damage done to the property.

    Back to the OP I think hiding a dog though would be quite stressful and they really could possibly do a bit if damage, especially when you aren't home (like digging and chewing stuff up).

    This topic always seems to end up in the same place. I'm just surprised it stayed on track for so long.

    Default pets and renting

    We rent and got approval for a dog 12 months after we moved in.
    The dog is my DS and he is looking at moving out of home in the next 12 months and she will be going with him.
    Our lease finishes up in March this year and we are considering in moving to a house more suitable to our needs and I believe that should give us a good rating as pet owners once we leave if Realestate gives the nod on property when we leave...how ever I am seriously looking at getting a puppy for myself now and when we do move we will have the good pet owner reference and offer $1000 money towards the new puppy...
    If you where a home owner would you be happy with that as a potential Tenant....?????
