Is there a Hometalk section for renters?

A lot of the ideas are very nice but they involve changes to a home that renters often do not have permission to make (nailing into walls, painting etc..).

    A lot of question come from renters. Just be aware that the owner of the property must be consulted before doing anything to their property.

      Yes, that’s kind of why I was asking if there was a section that is more renter friendly. Some renters are able to make changes after asking permission but most renters I know cannot paint, attach things to the wall or ceilings. I can’t even put up pictures or curtain rods.

    Most of the time, people who rent stipulate they are renting and cannot do certain modifications. However, a subject matter of no modifications would be nice because not everyone who is a home owner wants to put a hole in the wall or paint as well.

  • That's a great idea but unfortunately I don't think there's a specific renters section currently. You could suggest it to Hometalk, they'd be happy to hear the idea. You can adapt many of the ideas you see here using temporary solutions though with a little extra research.
