In our places when we have good tenant we try to look after them, by putting in dishwashers or redoing the carpet etc I am sure most people are the same.
    We were exactly the same as landlords, ask you might be pleasantly surprised. We also never increased our rent on good tenants.

    Sorry yes i was joking with the link...

    It was sarcasm..obviously couldnt get it through my message...

    Cheap houses but def not an area you would want to raise a family..

    So yes there are cheap houses but not everyone is willing to live in that type of area...
    Just to own a home.

    No, I wouldn't do it.
    I put myself into the landlord's shoes.
    DF and I are saving very, very hard. We're putting off children and the fertility specialists and everything we need to do, and possibly even our wedding, so that we can buy a house. It won't be the most fantastic house, but it'll be our house that we will (in theory) own outright.

    Renters insurance, bond, whatever, or not, you can't guarantee that your dog won't destroy the house. No one can 100% guarantee that, and if it were my property, after DF and I have sacrificed these things so that we were financially set up for a long term future, I would actually be furious. And would be doing everything in my power to make sure you couldn't rent again.

    Yes, I am spiteful. - -; If I say you can have a dog, then no problems, go for it(I would anyway. I love animals, but still). If I say no and you get one and it destroys my house, something I've worked hard for and sacrificed for, I'd be furious.

    And there is another reason(which would probably tie in with the other thread on this subject, but that's all the way over there -->) DF and I are trying to buy our first home outright, along with any subsequent houses after that, so that we can rent them cheaply to people in need. So if someone took advantage of that, it would be an even bigger slap in the face.

    So no, I wouldn't get a dog without permission. I don't know what the owners had to give up to own that property, or how hard they found it to buy it, so I'd not even have the possibility of a dog destroying the property on them.

    It's *my* home, but it's *their* house. I don't need a dog/cat to make it a home, despite how much I love them. I am aware that it's not my house and just like if I entered someone elses home, I abide by their rules.

    You might not enjoy being a landlord, chances are things will get damaged (everyone I know who has been a landlord has suffered damage to their properties), and honestly there isn't much you can do. Just claim insurance and more on.

    We have had some wonderful tenants, so I try to give limited thought to the crappy ones.

    I actually don't mind damage. Lol. I love kids, I love animals, hell, if between them a kid accidentally manages to knock a hole through a wall by playing canonball with a small pig, then okay, I'll turn the hole into an aquarium.

    If they put a hole through a wall by playing canonball with a small pig I had said the renters weren't allowed to have, I will be ropable. It comes down to respect for me. I understand that animals and children cause damage, as do most adults, but children and animals mostly(which is why I mention them), and with that knowledge in mind I would still say yes and okay to animals, even if they destroyed my home, and if they destroyed it, I'd shrug and go about claiming insurance and what-not, it's what it's for. But that's because I said okay, sure, go ahead. So it's on my head for responsibility of my property as well.

    If I said no and they did it anyway, I'd be furious.

    Those houses are not something I'd pay to live in, rent or buy.

    Surely landlords are actually not allowed to evict you for having more children once you are under a lease? I understand they would be able to look at your application and go "nup, dont want a family with 3 kids in my house, wont approve them" but once you are living there they cannot evict you for it if you happen to have another child? Sounds absolutely ludicrous to me!
