Good luck OP You never know what they are looking for, I think it varies between Landlords. I beat a lot of people to mine and I am a single Mum.
My friend owns a rental property and she never takes people who have animals (even just cats), while some Landlords are animal lovers and really don't mind. You never know. Good luck!

I had to get bossy with a previous property manager just before, she was refusing to send through my rental ledger as it has my ex's name on it as well as my own... I called up requesting a copy for myself and she STILL refused, I had to remind her it was MY rental ledger and stomp my feet a little.
All sorted now and I did a cover letter with a pic of the kids.
I think they're being submitted tonight, hopefully know sometime tomorrow.
Good luck Flip Flop. In my experience (I used to work in a RE office), some go purely on numbers, others (usually previously owner occupiers) think about what their neighbours would like, most go by what the RE favours.

Sorry bit of a thread crash here, but we will be going back into the rental market soon when we sell our house, renting while we build a new house. We have three pets (one medium size dog two cats) and a 4 year old kid. High income though, decent rental history (only trouble was when a rented with an agency up north who's standard practice was to withhold everyone's bond without having seen the property at vacating, we did get bond back at small claims though). Any ideas on what to do to increase our chances???

Having been a landlord I would choose a single parent everytime. I have found that single parents rarely move (thanks to parenting orders and the fear that they will not get another place to house their kids) and they are often house proud. I also had a single mum who stayed for 12 years so thumbs up to single parents. If I had no single parents apply then I would choose a couple with kids- they have more responsibility and want their children in a stable home. Dinks, imo, have less responsibility and are more likely to move.

Any advice for helping two teenagers get into the rental market would be greatly appreciated.
What type of cover letter do you write? These two teens are moving out with grandparents support and one grandparents will be signing the paperwork as they are only 17.

We (4 early 20's uni students) got the first place we applied for because we were the first applications in. They read our application, decided we would do and didn't bother reading any of the others.

I think our application was first I as I showed up to the inspection with my application already filled in. I handed it to the PM as soon as I had looked through. We are a single income family, I'm a SAHM with 3 children and one on the way. The house is literally 2 doors up from DD's school so is absolutely perfect for us! I'm nervous I didn't hear anything today. Not sure if they contacted anyone yet...
