Okay, I listed this under Home & Garden because it has to do with my home. Wasn't sure what else to list under.
DH and I have an inlaw suite addition on our house. It has a separate door which is outside on the deck. It has been rented out for the last 5 years and now we find ourselves having to rent it out once again as the man we had in there all this time can no longer live alone :(
We have put it in the paper but we are also wanting to advertise it on craigslist. One of the rules on craigslist is that the wording "no kids", "no pets", "perfect for a couple", "suitable for 1 person" are not allowed, are in fact illegal and considered discrimination.
We do not want to make anyone feel as if we are discriminating and we are not sure how to go about posting this ad. The inlaw suite is only big enough for 1 person, there is no room for anyone that has a child, and we do not want pets in it.
Now, we have children and we also have a pet, a dog, it is not that we don't like them, it is that we do not want pets because of the fact that we do not want anything damaged or ruined in the apartment. It is fully furnished and has new carpeting and flooring and the furniture is mint condition.
Down the road we may have to rent again and even though we would have security deposit, sometimes that may not be enough to cover replacing things say 5-6 years down the road.
So, with all this said, I am looking for some advice on how to go about posting this ad without having anyone feel like we are discriminating. Suggestions and comments please! Thank you ladies!!

LOTS of people refuse pets in their rentals. I'd look it up in your state and see whats legal. I don't know about anywhere else but here you can't have say 3 people in a 1 bedroom. I mean, of course you CAN but landlords are allowed to state the number of people who are living in the house.
