We rent our house and just wondered if we officially have to let the landlord know we are having a baby? Or is it none of their business? I've had inspections, and they've probably thought so as they've seen the nursery, but do they need to know another little person will be living here soon? Thanx

I don't think so, on your lease it will say maximum occupants so aslong as your not over that your fine

Some realestates like to know if there is anyone under the age of 18 living there.
We let ours know and when DS was born they sent us flowers lol!

Personally I have never heard of this or anyone doing it.
If they have seen the nursery Im sure they know.
I wouldnt bother.

I have no idea. Maybe you might need to call your property manager to find out. We had to put our baby on the lease as living here and we are pregnant again and I haven't even thought about telling them.

We moved into the house we are in when I was 3months pregnant with DD. didn't tell the real estate that, or when she was born. They found out at an inspection.
Since the house has changed hands/owners and I'm due again in 4 weeks. I haven't told the new real estate, and won't be. Don't think it's any of their business. They can/will find out when we resign a lease or have an inspection.

It depends on the owners as well sometimes - some want to know if there are children on the property. My last rental, the owners were very particular about it. U should ring the realtors and let them know, coz some may require it noted on the lease. If there were ever an issue (ie at an inspection or dispute re: bond) they could use it against you (if they required u to notify them and u didn't). It's not worth any potential trouble, easier to just to call and let them know, as a courtesy.

I am not sure but I have heard that legally they need to have every occupant of the house listed for safety reasons.. for example if there was a fire, everyone could be accounted for??
But as I said I am not sure. If they have seen the nursery I am sure they would have a fair idea!!

We rent to, and I told our agents on application that there will be another. Well they could not realy mis it . I would tell them, just keeps your side of things clear and I am not sure how insurance works the owner may have to let his insurance company know for property insurance purposes.

My girlfriend is a landlord and has said specifically she doesn't want children in her rental so I would let them know!
This being said if there was an inspection and you had the nursery set up its not rocket science to put two and two together!!
