You want to pay cash instead of using the loan (that you wrote into your contract), and you're wondering if the seller can insist that you get a loan? No, they cannot.

If you want your listings posted on the site, you need to have an auto feed from your mls that posts on third party sites like Trulia. If you MLS does not have it, you need to find a service that will do it for your. Our MLS has it so i just click a box to include or not listings to these sites. There is no ads to place other than signing up for zip codes to get leads, which IMO is a waste of money ... more

Unfortunately I learned from another landlord on Zillow's Q & A before it was shut down that tenants (renters) abuse the emotional support dog certificate - either getting a doctor to sign it or fraudulently claiming they are entitled to an emotional support dog when they are not. This is part of the reason for the difficulty.

Another issue is homeowners insurance for landlords. Standard insurance policies do not cover liability or damage from tenants pets. Since landlords do not want to be sued, it's easier to either have a "no pets" policy or to accept small pets by weight. There are specific breeds which insurance companies do not cover period. Pit bulls are one of those breeds.

If you are renting, it is your responsibility to buy pet insurance with liability and damage coverage. Once you show proof of insurance, landlords will be more willing to accept you. The issue is if anything happens because of your pet, you will be sued - not your landlord.

Thank you for reaching out. Unfortunately, we currently do not have listings for rent to own homes. You may try your luck though and search our website using the Keyword section of the search filter which can be found in the All Filters button. However, these listings are extremely rare.

Let me know if you have additional questions and I will be happy to assist you.

Thank you for using Trulia!
