    Default pets and renting

    Haha well if that is the case you think they would say something. We've had cats at 3 different properties and never a comment about fur, odour and scratches on our exit inspections.

    This thread is a good reminder for landlords as well. If possible attend the exit inspections as there are sooo many things property managers don't pick up on.

    We always rent in safe areas....its one of my main conditions before I move anywhere.
    There is NO WAY we can afford to buy our own house. Like a PP has said, if we could buy we wouldnt be renting Lol Buying is just not an option for alot of people......people also assume that if someone does FIFO they are cashed up...not always the case. My partner isnt always doing FIFO, he used to but hasnt recently.

    Wow!! I didn't realise how many dishonest people there are :-(

    I've had two cats, one for 6 years the other for 2 and I have always managed to find pet friendly rentals!!!! Yes it's harder and my options are more limited, but I have never once considered lying about them and trying to hide them.

    Be honest, it's the safest option. And also the most honorable option.

    Good luck

    Ive found that some animals are easier to get approved than others. Most landlords/owners dont seem to mind cats, fish, birds and tank animals (reptiles) but alot will refuse a dog because of the amount of destruction a dog can do. A dog is more likely to dig up the garden and eat the plants than a cat is.

    My dog once ate/chewed on 7 plants at our pet friendly rental.....7. We replaced them all of course but that was fine....I would never walk away from a rental without fixing something that was actually damaged by us or our pets. We had house guests destroy our spare room carpet in one of our rentals and we rang the owner as soon as they had left and told them what happened and told him to choose the carpet and we would replace it straight away.

    Gosh its starting to sound like having a cat is like running a drug lab...lol.

    Well I guess I have disrespected someone property that I was so privileged and hounoured to have been able to live in while paying them.

    And to also get good references and other properties thought the same agent who have always been happy with me and always complimented me on the good state of the property.

    Oh but the shame my poor cat gives me. The guilt I must now live with knowing the dreadful thing that I have done. A cat living in a house in secret. Unforgivable!

    I will now walk away and hang my head in shame.

    I am a landlord, with a tiny fibro house on a huge development block. The original fence at the back is 3 foor high (easily jumpable for a person) and my sister lives over the back fence. So for her security I only rent to people who have a dog! I feel that it makes the house more attractive to tenants if they can have a big dog there, and the yard is scrubby grass and large trees, so plenty of space and shade for a dog. I don't care if the dog goes inside, I can't imagine there are many people who adhere to the 'outside dog' thing anyway.

    I wouldn't get a pet on the sly unless I was hoping to get a big red strike through my name and be booted from my house. It's a really really stupid thing to do.

    Default pets and renting

    I only got a dog a few months back but we are in a home owned by government. So we never have to move.
    I never got one before that because while the property I had may allow pets the next one I need to apply for may not.
    I can't believe people lie about having pets.
