Agree. There is no argument here...what landlords should do be law is a different story than what they are doing. Sometimes laws a stupid. And yes kids can be a negative in someone's home so get over it. Not everyone likes kids.

Again, you are forgetting that being a landlord means you are running a business. Businesses have to comply with relevant laws and regulations. You don't get to violate them just because you feel like it.

If you aren't prepared to rent to kids knowing that you legally have no choice (unless it's an owner occupied two family home) then you shouldn't be a landlord.

Theres plenty of people willing to rent. Maybe you should have thought about that before you got a dog and had kids.

Bottom lines there are ways around this and you all know it. Many businesses out there are cash only and people don't pay taxes...thats way worse than this. Newsflash-not everyone obeys the law.

Lol. This is a ridiculous argument because if you actually owned property you'd know there are a million codes you have to follow anyway.

You realize kids are human beings right? You wouldn't be here if someone didn't decide to have kids.
