TrueSo 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.
