Don't be dishonest, landlords like us used out entire savings to buy our first home. When our circumstances changed, we moved away leaving us with no option but to rent.
We initially said no pets as I had a beautiful garden and was frightened of it being destroyed.
We gave in and approved the tenants a pet lease for their two dogs as long as they stayed outside. These tenants took us for a ride the dogs destroyed the side gate, the back lawn, scratched the garage roller door and after many warning letters the tenants let the dogs live inside and poo all over our floors amongst other damage the tenants did to our home (rent default, kicking in the new dishwasher etc). They had unapproved pets hidden for inspection but the idiots left their belongings lying around.
It took a lot of time an money to clean and repaint the entire house (inside & out).
Our real estate was jut as bad, releasing their bond. Needless to say our house is now vacant draining our savings, but I do not have the heart to rent it again due to dishonest tenants twice in a row. We have been trying to sell well below what we bought it for even after our beautiful renovations, but the market is so dead.
Please be honest, you have no idea the stress it caused me, crying most days, stress on our marriage etc. I know you obviously don't think much of it but it is a breech and the owners can kick you out if they find out and I hope they do.
