Put away the candles when you are not going to be home, if the landlord sees them out he might freak!

Uh, this left me scratching my head. Might I ask why you suggest this?

Because landlords don't want their apartments/houses to burn down.  Some owners may not have an issue; however, most would be irritated.

Where I live it is illegal for a landlord to enter the space when the tenant is not home.  Even whe the tenant is home, it requires 24-hour written notice first anyway.

If you are friendly with your landlord you might have a drop-in relationship, but if that is the case you would know whether decorative, unlit, candles, are something that would freak him out. 

Partially burned ones would only be a problem if you leave them lit when no-one is home, or if your lease has a no candles/incense clause, which I've heard of in some newer business.  But worrying about what the landlord might see when you're not home seems a little strange to me.

((Off topic:  Then don't, I don't care, as it was a suggestion.  It's just coming from my experience from being responsible for 120 apartment complexes.  Oh, and that 24-hour law?  If you're not home, they generally don't care and it's easy to get around.  Your best defense is to install a security pad on your door, at least you will know when/if someone was in your house (Key-pad style, mag switch, time delay, battery operated, runs only about $17.))

Now...back to the topic!

With news of a baby on the way, we're trying to make room in our very small apartment. How does anyone feel about taking down an alter?

I feel your pain. I don't keep a standing altar up at home. I used to, years ago, but it's location made it too convenient as a deposit for clutter from careless housemates and I just got used to keeping it put up even though I could probably keep one out now if I wanted to. I have always kept out some of my God/Godess symbols and a few other items around the house. Some of my tools I keep in a drawer in the bedroom. I just use the living room table if I need an altar (or I did till I tripped and landed on it- smashed it  Embarrassed ). We moved into a new house about a year ago and I have ben thinking of putting my altar up again. I just need to decide where I want it.

Well Met all.

With news of a baby on the way, we're trying to make room in our very small apartment. How does anyone feel about taking down an alter?
I wasn't quite sure how I felt. In a way I felt like I had put so much into my alter, i've had it set up pretty much the same except seasonal changings, ritual work involving it, etc. Any thoughts on splitting things up a bit more? I usually like everything to be together and easily accessible. Thank you all in advance for your help.

Bright Blessings.

You know, this sounds like dejavu to me. I just moved back into my parents house and I also have a four-year old who loves all of mommy's pretty things. I actually have to be cautious not just around the child, but around the parents(they are mormon).

So I went out to Walmart and bought a 5 shelve bookcase. It is tall and thin and it bolts into the wall so that it won't topple(the bolt hole is easily puddyable). The top three shelves are reserved for my alter space, and the bottom two are for books. It actually works because I have a small room, and it takes little to no space. If you have a corner, you have an alter.

I also had to trade in my effigies for pictures, which really is not so bad as they contain the same energy. It is hard at first to let your beautiful, dedicated alter go(especially with all the thought and time), but it is really not so bad. Hope you find your solution, my dear. Blessed Be. Wink

My landlord (nor any of the office staff) doesn't have our permission to enter my apartment if we're not home.

Besides, while I rent this place, it's mine. If I want to keep my altar up in full view of god and everybody, I have the right to do that. And I do have renter's insurance.

Just because they don't have your permission, though, doesn't mean they won't. Some landlords are good like that, some aren't. Legally I think they are allowed to enter without permission, providing certain criteria are met. Afterall, even though you are paying money to use the space (renting) they still OWN the building and the room that you're in.

I think it all depends on how good your landlord is and the type of contract you have.

Barring emergencies, ours are required to give 24 hrs notice before they enter - then they can whether we are there or not. And if we ask them to come do something, then again they don't need us to be there when they enter, unless we want to be.

Which is a lot better than once upon a time living somewhere that the landlord's could turn up, any time, knock on the door and demand entrance. Gods I loathed living there. Really sad part... it was legal....

If they felt that way in South Texas, there would be a whole lot of people they could not rent to. Light candles is an important religious thing for many Hispanic Catholics. I can't think of a single apartment complex in the San Antonio area that had such a no candles rule.  I'm sure there were a few (probably older and possible fire traps), but in the 30+ years I lived in San Antonio, I don't think I ever heard of one.

Then you got a good landlord and a good lease agreement. Smiley You lucked out (Or did your research).

Actually, I think the "lucking out" part comes of being born in the right country.
