I have just turned down a Brazilean family for a viewing because the wife cannot speak basic English.  For me this is a redline.  I think landlord & tenant relationship is hard enough when you do speak the same language and I am not going to hand the rights of a tenancy to someoone who could later claim they did not understand the agreement.  I personally would feel I was letting the neighbours down by giving them a neighbour they can't talk to.

What do yo think?  Am I sensible or miserable?
