Don t leave your house hunting until,the last minute give yourself plenty of. time to find a pet friendly property,Renting with pets 03. Introduction, Dogs Trust understands that finding privately rented accommodation that allows pets can be. very difficult We know from experience that many pet owners are forced to live in unsuitable. properties or keep their pets without consent from their landlord In some extreme cases. owners are even having to give up their pets or else face becoming homeless. In a recent survey by Dogs Trust1, n 8 of pet owners reported that they had experienced difficulties finding. privately rented accommodation that would allow pets. n 54 of pet owners were never able to find a suitable property that accepted pets. n 8 of people had to rehome their pet, Dogs Trust has launched its Lets with Pets campaign to help make the house.
hunting process easier for tenants with pets This booklet contains tips and. advice on how to persuade landlords that you and your pets would make. good tenants It also contains information on moving with your pet and. being a responsible pet owner, As part of our Lets with Pets campaign we have produced a separate. booklet for landlords and lettings agents with information and advice. on renting their properties to pet owners, For further information on Dogs Trust s Lets with Pets campaign. please go to www letswithpets org uk,Dogs Trust survey of 1417 pet owners June 2008. 04 Renting with pets,Looking for accommodation,with your pet. for finding privately rented,accommodation with your pet.
When you are looking for privately rented accommodation. with your pet there are a number of things you can do to make. the house hunting process as simple as possible, on t leave your house hunting until the last minute Give yourself plenty of time to find a. pet friendly property and begin searching at least 6 8 weeks before you need to move out of your. current home, e as flexible as possible The more restrictive your search criteria are the more difficult it will. be for you to find a pet friendly property Try to be flexible on location and property type as this. will increase your chances of finding somewhere for you and your pet to live. rite a CV for your pet Provide your prospective landlord with as much information about. your pet as you can Write a CV and include contact details for your veterinary practice and for. someone who can care for your pet in case of an emergency You could also include details of. your pet s last vaccinations and any flea and worming treatments they have received See pages. 9 and 10 for two sample CVs, et a reference for your pet By providing your landlord with a reference from your previous. landlord or your vet you can show that your pet is both well behaved and capable of living in. rented accommodation without causing problems or damage This will also demonstrate that you. are a responsible pet owner See page 7 for a sample reference letter. 5 I ntroduce your pet to your landlord Meeting your pet in advance may put your landlord s. mind at ease You could invite your landlord to your current home so that they can see that your. pet has caused no problems there This is particularly important for dogs as it s an opportunity to. show that your dog is calm and well behaved, ffer to pay a higher deposit Many landlords are concerned about pets causing damage to. their property or furnishings By offering to pay a higher deposit you will reassure the landlord. that you will cover any damage that your pet may cause. ffer to have the property professionally cleaned Landlords often worry that accepting. pets will lead to flea infestations excess pet hair and dirty carpets and soft furnishings To. put your landlord s mind at ease you might consider offering to pay for the property to be. professionally cleaned when you move out Some landlords and letting agents may ask for a non. refundable payment in advance to cover the cost of cleaning. e honest don t sneak your pet in without permission It s never advisable to keep a pet in. a property without the landlord s consent This will only lead to problems in the future and could. result in the termination of your tenancy It s possible that keeping pets in the property may even. violate the landlord s own leasehold agreement It s advisable to always be honest about your pets. from the start, et written permission If your landlord has given you permission to keep a pet in your.
property make sure you get it in writing You should ask for a clause to be added to your tenancy. agreement to cover the keeping of pets and make sure that any No Pets clauses are removed. This will prevent problems from arising in future, aise awareness of Dogs Trust s Lets With Pets campaign By spreading the word about our. campaign you can help us to encourage more landlords and letting agents to accept pets We. have produced a separate booklet for landlords and letting agents which gives help and advice on. renting properties to pet owners For more information go to www letswithpets org uk. Renting with pets 05,Providing a pet reference, It s a good idea to provide landlords with a reference for your pet so you can show them you. are a responsible owner and that your pet is well behaved. Ideally you should ask a previous landlord to write the reference as they will be in the best. position to recommend you and your pet as tenants, The sample letter of reference on page 7 will give you an idea of the information that should. be included, If you have not rented with your pets before you could ask your vet to write you a. reference Although they will not be able to vouch for you and your pet as tenants they can. reassure prospective landlords that you are a responsible pet owner You should ask your vet. to state in their reference that,n your pets are well behaved.
n you are a responsible pet owner, n y ou provide routine preventive health care such as vaccinations and flea treatments. for your pets when appropriate, n you seek veterinary treatment for your pets when needed. Try to be flexible on location as this,will increase your chances of finding. somewhere for you and your pet to live,06 Renting with pets. Refer ce rn,refer e d to be,ence f able t,or Mr o wri.
