I am currently looking for a house to rent. I have a lot of my own furniture and other bits and pieces. My Dad (who is a landlord himself on another property) says that most places won't let you bring your own furniture as this gives you squatters rights and it's hard to get rid of tenants if they cause trouble, don't pay etc.
I'm not entirely convinced by this.
Can anyone shed some light on the subject?
I know that with places that are already furnished the landlord may not want to remove a lot of stuff that he would then have to store, but I have been in contact with one or two places that are currently being redecorated, are advertised as furnished but the furniture has not yet been purchased. Surely me having my own stuff would save the landlord some time and money??
