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. 
 
If you are on the hunt for a property with a furry friend in tow, here are our top tips to help you secure your ideal rental home: 
 
Plan ahead 
 
There is now more availability when it comes to pet-friendly rentals. However, in the current market, the imbalance between supply and demand means rental properties are being snapped up very quickly.  
 
We would suggest beginning your search around eight weeks before you intend or need to move out of your current property.  
 
Create a file for your pet 
 
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 
 
This is often only relevant to tenants with dogs. It does, however, put your landlord’s mind at ease knowing your pet gets along well with the other people in the house and is well-behaved.
