or even worse when they lie about it and think they're fooling you come inspection time.I think potential tenants have an awful cheek to insist that they be allowed to have pets. I *once* let a tenant have pets and will never again let a tenant have pets.
Our old neighbour thought her landlord was coming around while they were at work because they were given a breech for having dogs, but just stepping in her front door you could smell dog, even though they were relatively clean dogs and she was a clean freak.

I can understand why people lie though on rental applications. I wouldn't personally, because I have no desire to live my life looking over one shoulder but I do understand why others do.
I'm trying to secure a rental interstate and it is HARD . I have 7 children and 2 dogs and apparently, the plague
We have owned 3 homes, but never rented. Have impeccable references as an owner, but none as a tenant.
We have been unable to secure a rental yet, from 10 applications

I'm sure the kids and pets are a deterent, but if they are desperate or have no 'safer' alternatives you should be okay. It's about supply and demand.
Our old house has been empty for 2 months, rent dropped $30, pets are now allowed.

Yeah I've said 'oh we have 3 gold fish' when we applied for this house and the agent laughed and said they don't really count.

I think it's reasonable to allow pets in rental's. As someone else said kids tend to do more damage then a pet. I don't think animals should be inside though, but each to their own I guess.

I haven't read the replies but as an owner of a town house that we rent out through an agent, we have stipulated no pets.
The reason for this is because when we lived in the town house, which is in a group of 4, two of the other places had dogs. In one of the houses when the owners were not home the dogs were left outside to bark and bark and bark and bark, all day and all night, and basically it drove us and the other neighbours insane. In the other property the dog was locked inside all day while the owner was at work and it chewed the wooden venetian blinds to pieces.
So yes, I believe owners should have the right to stipulate no pets, particularly when it is done taking into account the neighbours and the wear and tear, over and above general living, that pets can have on the property.
