Our renters: These are their demands lol *edit* added pic page 3 *update in blue*

Posted by   + Show Post

 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!

The only demands that should ever be made by renters (my husband & I own several rental properties) is if something is majorly wrong or is not up to code by the city. Plumbing/electric, etc. If the person renting wants to paint then they can ask you and submit paint colors. Otherwise---NO don't give in :)

This is total crap. I don't think you should have to do any of it. When my husband and I signed our lease the only thing that we asked for was that we can paint and at the end of the lease we will paint it back to the neutral white that they had it painted as.

I suggest not renting to them. They seem like they are going to be a hassle renting to.

Ridiculous!!

Quoting beerebelly:

 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.

Holy crap. Yeah, no I would not rent to these people. They should just buy their own house and make the adjustments.

Are they confused? They do know they are renting and not buying? They sound like trouble, I would not rent to them.
