lied about baby (by jeffpas [IL]) Posted on: Jan 11, 2018 3:07 PM
Message:

Young tweenage couple passes the interview, says they have no pets, don't smoke, both work, seem responsible and had the deposit.

After searching a long time and lots of bad choices, finally settled on them. They move in, and pay rent promptly for two months.

Until another renter moves out.

Now I'm over at the building getting the apartment cleaned. And what do I hear? Well, a roaring, crying infant baby coming from their apartment.

I tell myself, oh they're watching someone's kid. But then its there again the next time I'm over, a couple days later. And the next time I go over.

Who am I kidding?

They smuggled in a baby, its theirs..... and they lied on the app obviously (she showed no signs of being pregnant at the interview).

Well, what would you do?

Nothing. That baby is well covered by Fair Housing Laws. --50.82.xxx.xx

Nothing. If they pay the rent, leave it at that. --24.130.xx.xx

Message:

Haha, funny. Yes, I wouldn't want to discriminate against children, right.

I wouldn't mind so much, its just that we figured: "They'll last until about 6 months in this one bedroom studio until after they have their first baby, and then they'll be wanting to bolt."

Well they ALREADY HAVE THE BABY. They won't even last until Spring, likely.

Can't think what would make them hide the fact, its a strange thing to do usually people are beaming proud of a newborn. And of course, they flat out lied. Not a good sign, either.

Acknowledge, or ignore the obvious? was what I wondered other landlords would do.

Why are you worried about this? It's not like it's her drunk uncle or drug addict step brother. --50.32.xxx.xx

Message:

Right, gotcha. I guess to paraphrase my father, "If a renters lips are moving... they're lying." lol

Oh well, it was a first for me. I'll report in if anyone else more exciting joins the lease.

Message:

You could also look at your lease to make sure that it indicates that baby wipes cannot be flushed down the toilet, including those that are advertised as being flushable. I learned from this forum about including a clause about the wipes. In general, I guess you'll figure out if these tenants don't call you incessantly about repairs and pay rent on time.

Best of luck. --107.142.xxx.xx

Remember that advice recently about the unannounced home visit to their current home?

lied about baby (by AllyM [NJ]) Posted on: Jan 11, 2018 4:14 PM
Message:

I think they will stay unless you become rude or nasty to them. Figure they can't afford to move now since one income is gone so someone can stay home with the baby. If getting them to stay is your only problem, then give them a small baby gift. I gave my young couple tenants who I knew were having a baby, half the month's rent free as a gift. But I can afford to do that after all these years. --73.33.xxx.xxx




lied about baby (by plenty [MO]) Posted on: Jan 11, 2018 4:48 PM
Message:

Yep, that's my experience too. Babies will do that. I wouldn't like it either but since they are there id be concerned about showing the vacant unit and the sound being a turn off... However my mom would say it was music to her ears... She loved babies and all the kids loved her. Music to her ears... Hear it differently. --66.87.xx.xx

Message:

Too late now they are already in,i would ignore it,not like a baby is going to kick in the front door besides if they looked at the place and already had the kid maybe they were seeing the place as acceptable with a kid and will stay a year or two --72.231.xxx.xxx

Maybe they are running a daycare? Babysitting? Maybe they adopted? Maybe they are baby sitting? --66.87.xx.xx

Message:

They'll probably stay longer than you anticipate. They have to be able to afford a larger place. They can get by in that studio for at least a couple of years. --207.172.xx.xxx

Any baby abductions in your area in the news? They could have abducted it. I know it's unlikely but it's possible.

Here's a gruesome story from Fargo. Someone is their landlord.

Message:

The point isn't the baby but the lying about it. Is this a one bedroom or a duplex? Trying to figure out why a baby would be an issue other than the lying?

I would simply ask them about it. Ias suggested, it may not be their baby. My lease States who may reside in the home and includes the adults on the lease an any minor children they have. So if it's not their baby they're violating the lease. --75.89.xx.xxx

Kind of got off easy. A baby won't cause any damage at all. A simple cat would do 10 x's more damage. --196.52.xx.xx

Jeff, maybe they didn't lie,just didn't say anything about it.why was the baby roaring.Strange.charlie....................................................... --174.199.x.xx

Message:

The baby is fine till 12 months but to be exempt by fair housing the tenant needs to be the parent which means they lied or it is that new, drop in and congratulate them on the newborn and the story will unfold... --76.188.xxx.xx

Not sure what the lead laws are in IL ... but in my hood it's a reason to lie about an infant. --72.227.xxx.xxx

Message:

Maybe just mention it too them in passing that in the future, you would appreciate it if they were a tad bit more forthright with exactly who will be living there.....but an infant isn't causing you any harm and only make them sleepless at night.

In my experience it took me more than two months to find an apartment for my husband,my baby, and I. Everytime I mentioned my child I was turned down immediately. No one would rent to us. We had the money and the credit but that didn't matter. That could have been their reason. --172.58.xxx.xx

Some people co sleep so the size of what they are renting wonít even be an issue if baby doesnít have itís own crib. Babies donít really need more space until they start crawling at 8 months or walking at a year old. One renter of mine has a 2 bedroom house. Sheís pregnant with her 4th kid but only has custody of her 2 year old. She still co sleeps with the 2 year old and probably will co sleep with both of them when the new baby comes. --173.26.xx.xxx
