When should you tell a prospective tenant you live very close?Make Text Bigger
I am currently in the process of finding a tenant for my property. I live a couple of houses along from it.
I have advertised this property as a ‘no pets’ property, mostly because I don’t want to be annoyed by any more dogs barking and cats messing in my garden which I already have to tolerate from other neighbours.
Despite this, there have been several enquiries from people with dogs, who have only disclosed this during a viewing, after I mentioned where I live. Obviously, they were trying to hide the fact and get away with it.
It looks like mentioning where I live at an early stage is the best idea as potentially, I could have accepted these tenants and then found out about the pets on moving in day!
Any opinions or thoughts on this?
