Being sued for rejecting a tenant due to bad references

Hi Lyn,

I would question why the person you obtained the reference from was given verbally and not in writing? It sounds like the prospective tenant has tried this with their pervious landlord hence they did not want to put anything in writing.

I would defend the claim and hopefully this will be chucked out.... Read More

I said no dogs, now they want one offering more rent, but I can't increase it for a year!

Hi Brian,

I totally agree with your comments. Its still a learning curve and in my experience each tenancy needs to be treated like a business transaction.

Hi Peter,

Getting the carpets professionally cleaned will still leave a smell.

I have a number BTL's and I am still learning. Tenants ask for an inch and take a mile. Sounds like your tenants are using the emotional card as in "need to get the dog for their autistic child". Try not to get emotionally involved.

I apologise if I sound harsh. I would ask the question if they required a gurantor how will they afford the up keep for the dog.

Go for your gut instinct. Also make your own inquiries with a professional carpet cleaning firm to ascertain whether animal odour can be removed once cleaned... Read More

Hi Tom,

I appreciate your comments. However the carpets were cleaned twice. Once by my tenant and 2nd I arranged for this. The odour did not go away. I used baking powder which was recommended to treat it which eventually worked. But caused alot of stress money.

Peter may I ask why you said no to a dog in the first place?... Read More
