Where can I find the school catchment? Don't believe anyone but the School District https://webapps1.philasd.org/school_finder/ Tip: both sides of the street may not be included in catchment, and a kindergarten spot is NOT guaranteed for all catchment children.
I'd like to rent a house with three friends. Phila Code states "no more than three unrelated adults may live in one unit without rooming house zoning." Zoning is by property, and that isn't ours. We cannot change the laws, and violating the zoning invalidates our licenses and everyone's insurance. So sorry.
Do you have a lot of turnover? Most tenants stay three to four years. We're typically a last rental.
Is a piano okay? Sorry but no.
Do you accept animals? Yes...but,,,we only accept one animal per household, AND renting to animals for decades---some of them (ahem) less (ahem) chill than others---so there are rules. Existing animals only. We adhere to all animal laws, our insurance company's restrictions and use the Philadelphia Women's Humane Society* pet tenancy model. Even if just visiting, any animal must be in the lease, qualify, be an ADULT, house broken, spayed/neutered, trained and socialized standard domestic animal suited for urban living. Phew! A lot of boxes there, right? Sorry but we can no longer accept pet dogs. We don't charge pet rent or collect a pet deposit.
What are you looking for in a tenant? Responsibility, excellent credit and ability to pay the rent. A good neighbor that takes pride in the house and its history. An individual with the understanding of the enormous importance of curb appeal, safety and maintenance, Gardens matter.

Thanks for hanging in there and reading through this. To show you are serious about renting, just put the code ‘Pinball is fun’ in the FAQ box at the bottom of the appointment form. :-)
