FI and I live in a high-rise apartment, and the yearly apartment inspection is today. That’s not so much a problem as the fact that FI’s shifts got switched around and he most likely won’t be home for the inspection.
We have cats, as does almost everyone in the building, from what we can tell. When we were considering putting our application in for the suite, we actually made an “anonymous” call to the rental agency to ask them about their pet policy. They said that their paper policy is “no pets,” which is because they need to be able to evict tenants if their pets are causing problems, but that in our specific building cats are allowed “off-the-record.” Basically, they allow cats as long as they’re not causing problems with the suite or with other tenants.
We haven’t had any trouble with our cats at all, so I don’t think we run any risk there. They’re both clean and taken care of, and though one of them can get a little loud sometimes, we’ve never had any complaints from neighbours, either directly to us or from the landlords. (In fact, we did a test when we got our second cat–we both took turns standing at different places in the communal hallway, trying to see if we could hear him crying when he was shut up in the bedroom. Only if you put your ear to our front door could you hear anything.) The landlords have also seen the cats numerous times and have never said anything.
But for some reason, today, when it’s a proper inspection with the rental company representative and all, I’m panicking! I don’t want to be evicted! I just hate not being in control of a situation :S Convince me that it’ll all be fine, ladies!
