Personally, I would go out and see where it goes. But if you go out on a date, be blunt. Say that whether it works or not, to keep the tenant part separate.

Personally, I dated a tenant of mine once and I will never do that again. It is funny how people think once you have a personal relationship that they dont have to fullfill thier legal obligations to you anymore.

He was as you describe yours...clean, paid on time (heck, even early most times) never a peep from him or any complaints about him so I figured what the heck...if he is sooo responsible this shouldnt be an issue. Not true.

Also what has been mentioned here-you are in a position of authority and the other tenents will see you as a joke if the word gets out you are sleeping with one of the tenants.

I worked for a major banking institution, and ended up marrying one of my co-workers.

Sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't.

There are many pro's and con's to this situation, so I think all you can gather is data.

Then the final decision is yours.

I think you have the right idea. Good tenants can be hard to find. Maybe if he agrees to prepay the rent for a few years..

We have a saying in Australia.'never poop where you sleep'.......I'd stop telling 'tenants' about my private life if I were you......
