I am currently lodging with a work colleague and when I move out my landlady wants to continue to have male lodgers only. Do you think it is acceptable to advertise for a lodger based on gender?

I believe it is illegal to advertise it as such (same as race, sexuality etc), but I know that people get around it when advertising by implying in the advertising that females wouldn't be interested in the property. Plus, if there's more than one person interested in the property, I believe it's of the landlord/lady's prerogative as to who gets the room.

I'm more curious though as to why the landlady only wants guys to rent out the house. What does she have against female lodgers?

Maybe she wants to reduce the chance of couples being there for some reason by just having one gender there, maybe in consideration that more people are straight than gay. unsure.gif

She gets along better with men, although they tend to be a lot younger
