I haven't even said the op should lie.I disagree that you think it's ok to jump on you high horse and question some 1 honesty over something like not declaring a snake. Think your struggling to get to the water. Yes a lie is a like just like my comparison of the law is the law. Why is ok to judge 1 thing harsher than the other, I wouldn't judge the op if they never told the landlord as a dishonest lair any more than I would judge some1 who on occasion did 35 in a 30 as a as a criminal.

Thanks for the sarcastic accolade, I've never referred to anyone as being scum merely highlighted the virtues of honesty and integrity. Sorry if making something if myself elevates your own insecurities resulting in name calling.

I'm gonna bow out if this debate now as you still don't get the point the myself and others have been making from the start.

One last time... If you own it you decide on the rules if you don't then abide by the wishes of the person who does.

Good luck and I hope you achieve your goals and aspirations.

So easy for you then? Its not as if I'm not working hard but I can't earn the 20,000 for a deposit in a few months, it will take me years. I wasn't in a position where I was renting and wanted a snake I was in a position where I needed to rent and already had a snake. If I was in the former position i would have acted differently. To me it was a decision between getting rid of my snakes or maybe getting rid of them, which would you choose.

I think you need to read up a bit more on tenant and landlord rights and laws.
Not having a go, but I spent 6 months looking, maybe 5% allowed pets and 100% of those were at least double my price range. It's only once I went to my current landlord and asked questions that I realised there could be wiggle room.

I've done both and am currently renting and looking to cut my outgoings by buying a house! Because the mortgage payments would be less than the average cost of renting here.

How much you earn doesn't come into it.
Yes owning is cheaper, once you have the deposit, which I don't and am working my ass off to save, I will buy asap.

Yes ask, I'd say 90% chance it will be fine if you explain all the details.

So true, not part of the same debate, but my own landlord has broken at least 5 of its own rules within the agreement. Its not worth the hassle of moving right now otherwise I would but they're not so honest either.

Just because you hide a snake or two from the landlord doesn't mean that those who do are dishonest bad brought up people 'this is what's wrong with society' blah blah

The same way that breaking the speed limit by 5 or 10mph doesn't mean you are a criminal blah blah

It's wrong for some people on this thread to pass judgement and directly slate people's backgrounds and upbringing.

FGS we don't do everything by the book in life.

I just moved into a new rental and when I told the landlord I had snakes all he said was "wow can I come seem them" most landlords don't mine snakes ans they don't make any real mess, best just be honest.

Nope not easy, took me many many years to save up for the deposit but I'm proud to say I done it.

Now I'm just wondering whether to ask my landlord if I'm allowed a snake in the apartment or whether I should just get one anyway and if I get caught I could just explain that I thought snakes were allowed and use the whole ornamental pet excuse? Because I'm guessing I'd be in more trouble if I asked and was told I wasn't allowed a snake but got one anyway, than if I got one and apologised if/when I get caught..

Hi there!
Well... I'm living in a rented property... got a python without even saying anything. Straight after that I'd some dump problems in the apartment... so i've informed my land lady ... she come over, saw the cage... did not even ask whats in there, i guess if i would ask her for permission on a first place she would say NO... just because snakes dont have a good opinion...
I'll say go for it... and if ur landlord is coming for a check up u can always cover the cage with a blanket to dont be seen... but i didnt even care to do that... For now the land lady is greatfull for informing her about the damp problem so i dont really think she would dare to say something about a snake :P
