    Legally yes once bub is here you are suppose to inform us of any new occupants but no one would cause a drama or evict you over a baby!
    It's mainly just so we know how many occupants inhabit the dwelling, a baby in a one bedroom wouldn't be a problem but if you say had 4 kids and applied for a one bedroom then that wouldn't be ideal!
    The main reason , as an agent I would want to know if a baby or small child is on the property is (especially older units) I might be worried about blind cords or balcony heights not being at current code that could potentially be a risk to a baby (and if we didn't know a child was living there we couldn't get it up to code, in old buildings you don't legally need too but I would recommend it to any landlord renting it to tenants with kids)

    Thanks for all the comments. It's reassuring to know we are unlikely to have any issues.

    They have agreed to bring the inspection forward one week (I will be 39 weeks ), so assuming I am not in hospital having a baby, I will just be there myself and I'm sure they will work it out!

    @Elijahs Mum, thanks for that. It is a brand new complex so I don't think that will be an issue. We are actually the first tenants - I get quite paranoid about even the most minor damage/marks as it is obvious that it was caused by us, and I probably project those feelings a little bit too much onto the owners. We are very careful but obviously it would be unreasonable to expect to get the place back in exactly the same condition as when it was un-lived in.

    No you don't have to tell them.
