    Good luck at centrelink.
    If he did cause any damage, I wouldn't have kept him in a rental. I wouldnt have a perfect rental record otherwise. Am well aware cats do damage and that some people just don't care what damage they do to property.

    I'll see how many rules I can break to see what money I can scam.

    I think both tenants and landlords deserve more rights actually. The contract for renting needs to be more extensive and more tailored to individual agreements.
    What the! How can it not sit well with you?? You are renting. You don't own the house you are living in. It's not your property. It doesn't get much simpler than that. A rental property may be a business but it is still the landlords hard earned property they have worked their a*** off to get in the first place... not yours

    Default pets and renting

    I haven't read the whole thread, but from what I've read I'm a bit shocked at the attitudes towards people renting. I've rented and owned property's and yes the house and land belongs to the owner, but tenants aren't second class citizens! They are paying you rent. You are not doing them a favour by letting them live there!

    I'm not condoning lying or breaking rules, but renters have families and lives that sometimes include pets too they shouldn't have to go without especially if they have proven to be good tenants.

    Just my opinion!

    I must say, once you choose to lease YOUR property to somebody else and they pay you, the property is legally in their possession. It is as simple as that. Yes the lease terms should be adhered to, but the tenant has every right to enjoy the property they have paid for as well, not live like they are intruding on someone else's home.

    I think there are some thoughts coming from both sides of this argument that are unnecessarily aggressive.

    Lol.. The argument for their right to have a dog living in a house that stipulates 'no pets' is mostly emotional.

    This.

    I'm actually in disbelief at some of the stuff coming out from some people about renters.

    I rent and my DH & I have been great tenants.
    However, it seems that if I were to play 'hide the kitty' (which I don't), it means that I would also be morally bankrupt and commit centre link fraud? I am also, apparently, unable to budget as I should be a home owner by now?
    That is pretty insulting.

    No offense, but landlords are far from perfect...

    My old land lord was that broke she could never afford to fix anything if it broke. So I guess the theory of home owner = good with money goes out the window!

    I certainly never said owners must be good with money. I believe my point ( to those saying home ownership is never going to happen) is that if you look outside the square it actually could be within reach. I guess my attempt at motivation and optimism was lost.
