Sounds absolutely ludicrous to me!
    Im not 100% sure if this is true but apparently they can because you are breaking the lease agreement.
    In the lease it says for example 2 adults and 2 kids occupy the property etc.
    Adding another child is breaking the conditions of the lease.

    Lol, you know something is wrong when the only pictures they show of the house are of the outside only

    Although Dh found a great house online, beautiful in a fairly known and pricy Brisbane suburb only 10 minuites from the CBD.
    4 bed 2 bathrooms, the lot.
    For $200 a week rent!! Others in the area were around $600+
    I told him that it wasn't right but he insisted we call to go check it out.
    Well... Turns out the house had a murder and suicide happen only 8 months earlier
    The PM went on to say it was a husband and wife, all carpets had been replaced etc... Hubby was all for it I was completely against it!
    We later seen it on the market for 300k in the end it sold for 215K

    Suppose for those who are down with that could afford to buy old crime homes.. But no thanks.. Ill just keep renting..

    I did see something on our new lease agreement we got 2 days ago about how many people are allowed to reside at the property.. Including children.
    Ill have a look and see what I can find about it.

    Yea it's scary.
    I was told this by friends of mine who hide their kid during inspection because they are only allowed 2. But like I said I'm not 100% sure they are correct but they said that's what they where told by an agent.

    Sure if you hide a kid on your application I can understand getting in trouble for that, thats not cool, but surely having a baby... its not like new babies are always planned... "Oh look, you've had a new baby, what a shame we don't want 3 in our rental property, looks like you'll have to find another home for one of them or we'll evict you" LOL

    I can understand that you have to inform them if you have another baby etc, so that it can be put on the lease, but the idea that they can evict you for breach by having a baby is insane to me!
