So my parents helped me buy a house. It's not a big house, but it's good for a first house. I thought I had some roommates lined up, but they have flaked out at the last minute. My current roomies are going off their own ways. So I have a basement with a full bathroom that needs a tenant. Rent would be $700, and my dad (who is a lawyer) says he'll draw up a lease. I haven't decided which would be best, 6 month or 12 month. If you want to see pictures of the place, please PM me. The current tenants will not be out until May 31st. I'd like my new roommate(s) to move in sometime in the middle of June. I do intend to get myself a dog since this will be my house, but I am friendly to renters with their own dogs as long as they aren't DA. Unfortunately, the basement does not have its own entrance, so our dogs would likely have to interact at times. In fact, I only have one pet stipulation: NO BIRDS. I have two guinea pigs which will be kept upstairs on the second floor. Full kitchen/laundry machine access (there is no laundry room, the machines are in the hall near the master bedroom). No true backyard, but there is a grassy "common" area behind the townhouse. Anyone interested?
