Seriously? You don't let tenants hang pictures on the wall? Do people walk away before signing the lease after hearing that? I'm not trying to be a jerk. I'm just stunned. I never would have rented a place where I couldn't hang artwork.
We weren't discussing my lease, we were talking about the OP's lease which OP says bars tenant from putting holes in the walls. Personally, I don't mind if folks want to hang things right up to a tv, it's no big deal to spackle & touch up paint. But I am a hard-ass about the adhering to the letter of the lease, if we agreed to it, then it should be respected by both parties.
