 Ok so our house that we own went up for rent 2 weeks ago bc we are pcsing. Fine. A couple came last night and loved the place. After they left the husband called my husband with a list of demands before they signed a lease.

1) change around ceiling fans in bedrooms to suit their kids

2) add an additional gate to our deck

3) install garage door opener

4) replace our woodchips around playhouse area with rubber chips

5) tear down a storage space in our garage

6) build a wall covering the AC unit in utility room

Correct me if I am wrong but if they wanted to do all this stuff to a house shouldn't they have thought about buying?

OK dh is calling our property manager today and telling her we will not be doing the things they requested. I mean seriously if our house isn't the house for you then keep looking! Thanks for all of you ladies input!

 This is our first time renting out our house. Are these typical demands of renters?

I think they are crazy. The only thng I could perhaps see is a gate but if there was a pool or something like that.

We put in an offer for a two year lease with the condition we can paint. We submitted neutral paint colors.

Before we move in though they need to fix the bathroom.link because OT doesn't drain and the missing vent coverages be replaced and the other vent covers actually he secured to the wall instead of just leaning. It's all stuff that should have alreadu been done.

That's dumb!!! I'm renting andy landlords said if i wanted to change anything or add anything to talk to
Them and if it was in the best interest of the house then they'd agree and take it out of my rent.

wow those are some insane demands. We have rented plenty of times and would never request all that. I would see if it was something that needed fixng right away like a leak or if you had a pool  that maybe needed a fence. And the nerve to tell you to tear down a shed...I would tell them thanks but no thanks!!

 That is exactly what I said to my husband!

 We do not have a pool. The yard is already professionally fenced in. We have a huge deck. My dh put in a gate so I could keep the babies in when they were younger. Well, they don't like where we placed it so they want it in a different spot.
