    Default Tenants possesions in photos for flat to rent

    We recently put an ad in trade me for our flat using pics I took some months ago.
    Three days later our tenant asked to have them withdrawn as it is illegal to show her possessions without her permission.
    We had already had lots of response fortunately.
    I took them off and replaced them with some older photos.
    That was certainly a ''first'' for us

    Only just realized I was repeating what has been discussed in an earlier discussion--apologies,but I suppose its not a bad thing for this issue to be brought up in bold print.

    I have a set of photos for each property, taken on a nice sunny day when it is vacant between tenancies , clean and tidy exterior and interior, that I can use again and again when advertising a particular tenancy.

    I've had this issue as well. We basically came to an agreement where nothing of value was in the pics, and I mixed in a few pics that I had from when the place was advertised for sale.

    Good idea Davtan. I have thought about doing that with the other flat I have which is tenanted.
    Apparently the tenant in question had some burglary problems in the past,so I guess fair enough.
    Im not complaining about her doing this -just good to know.

    Here's an idea... take photos just before they move out and then use them for when the next tenant moves out. That way the burglars will think they're stealing the last person's TV

    I usually just post the photos I took when it was renovated before, even 3 years back, and so I don't need to take current photos.

    Just take pictures when the property is clean and vacant. From the point of a past tenant I understand that she would not want her personal belongings to be exposed publicly. Also, I prefer to advertise a property unfurnished, so it won't be any deception for future tenants.
