For those of you whom are landlords, do you let your tenants use the WiFi set up in your home?

i thought this one is standard provision that tenants sure want... maybe just ensure router can throttle or something.

Yup, I also thought it was a standard provision but I was browsing the reddit sub for landlords and realised that for most countries, Internet access is not provided and some landlords spoke of horror tales where their ISP blacklisted them because of "inappropriate website visits", so I was wondering how is the industry standard practise in Singapore.

If your tenant surfs HWZ, u might end up being accused of clone accounts.

I rent out as a whole unit without utilities and Wi-Fi subscriptions. There is less dispute this way.

Landlords don't usually provide wi-fi for their tenants.

Tenants will have to get their own broadband service and other utilities.

All tenants usually get when renting a property is the space of the house, some furniture... and that's it.

If your tenant is staying with the landlord, most would just let the tenants use.

If it were me, I would lay down the conditions for use, and you have the right not to allow them to use if they were found to have breached any or more of the conditions.

When you Google, make sure to take note on the point that there are many who rent out whole unit. As such, Internet and Utilities are generally not included for such...

Better think twice if sharing wifi coz by routers default, all devices are on the same subnet and can "see each other". Can easily access in to these devices if no password protected.

Certain routers have a 'Guest WiFi' nowadays, which would separate it from your own.

It depends on how secure you wish to go for.
