Are you a tenant on the hunt for a pet-friendly property?
Did you know? April 1st marks the start of National Pet Month! For tenants with pets, the search for a property can be a little more time-consuming and tedious.
It’s important to remember that you must always get consent from your landlord before keeping a pet in the property. Failure to do so could result in you getting into trouble with your landlord.

While some landlords may initially say no to pets, if there is a chance they can be persuaded, it is best to provide them with your pet’s medical details and a reference from your previous landlord to show that your pet caused no issues throughout your tenancy with them.
Have your landlord meet your furry friend
