Tenants with Pets: What You Need to Know

We understand that pets are often considered part of the family. However, renting a property with a pet comes with its own set of challenges and responsibilities. Here's what you need to know if you're a pet owner looking to rent.

Pet-Friendly Properties

Not all properties are pet-friendly, so it's crucial to check the listing details or consult with us to find a suitable home for you and your furry friend.

Pet Deposits and Fees

Unfortunately, Landlords are unable to request a higher deposit anymore than the 5 weeks rent. However, it maybe possible to offer a higher rent as an incentive for a landlord to agree, but bare in mind this wouldn't be refundable.

Pet References

Some landlords may request a pet reference to ensure your pet is well-behaved and has not caused issues in previous rentals.

Pet Policy Agreement

You may be required to sign a pet policy agreement outlining the rules and responsibilities for keeping a pet in the property. This could include stipulations about noise, cleanliness, and damage.

Final Thoughts

Renting with pets may limit your options and incur additional costs, but with proper planning and open communication with us, it's entirely possible to find a welcoming home for you and your pet.
