Renting your property to fully referenced tenants that have pets can increase the demand for your property and attract long-term tenants.
The majority of tenants with pets are responsible and would not allow their pets to damage your property.
Advertise your property as pets considered, again widening the number of potential tenants that you will attract to your property. You can still have the option to vet the pet and also take a higher deposit. Or add an insurance policy that covers accidental pet damage.
Finding a property that will accept pets, can be a nightmare. However with the right letting agent and right landlord it needn’t be. Our advice is always be honest, never try and hide your pet and hope that your landlord or agent won’t find out. They always do and you then run the risk of eviction.
If you find the perfect property and the landlord doesn’t accept pets, maybe introduce the landlord or agent to your pet in you current residence to provide security that your pet will not be destructive. You could also get a reference from any previous landlords, by providing references for you and your pet you can ensure you will look after the property you want.
