There are a lot of laws on dogs – for more information, see the very useful Dogs Trust brochure that you can download (along with many other useful pdf) from here. My daughter signed a lease with the states, “There will be a $35-a-month fee for pets.” When she tried to adopt a dog, the owner told her that he had changed his policy (rescue called him, he told them they were calling my daughter)… Anyway, is it legal in the United States? He explained that he was tired of flea problems in some of his other features. Is there anything we can do? My daughter is very depressed because she was looking forward to a companion. He even said she could have a pet if she visited the property. What`s your advice? I hope someone can help you! When my partner and I agreed to our new rental, it was on the condition that one day we have a dog. The real estate agent at the time of the contract was made said that if we had actually decided to have a dog, we would deal with the pet clause. Well, that time has come and the agent has in his clause that they keep money for 4 months after the lease in the case of chips. She said the contract they use a fee of 120 $US. We decided that this would be acceptable after it was confirmed that these funds were protected in the deposit system and that we wanted the amount of the retainer to be written as well, for obvious reasons that we do not want to be hit with a $1,000 bill (God for sure), there was a chip problem. The agent came back and said that the deposit system will not hold that money for 4 months after the lease and that our lease is for 3 years, the price of their supplier could increase. I now understand that the contractor`s prices could go up with inflation, but there is certainly a good way to include it in the agreement in order to be fair to both parties and ensure that my partner and I are protected from what appears to be a very commendable agent.
Please help me! Every piece of advice is very much appreciated. All dogs should be trained as puppies on the toilet, so there should be no problem with the strain inside the property. Dogs are usually toilets in the garden or during walks, and it is the dog owner`s responsibility to clean up after them. It`s so irritating! It is the man who is the problem, not the animal! Only to meet your potential tenant pet, see if it is taken care of, do 6 monthly checks on the ground. I guarantee you that if they are responsible owners, they would not refuse. I agree with the comments above, circumstances change! I am desperately looking for a dog owner because my 10-year-old partner is going to join the RAF and leave me in a house that I can`t afford. How annoying it is for me to come across an owner`s website called “Malting Bags of Ftahe”. What an absolute sting they are. Trusted dogs receive as many dogs in them due to changing circumstances and people go to rented properties that refuse the dog.
We are a generation of tenants… Owners need to change their attitude towards pets because they are only liars by tenants. (For laws specifically for dogs see the fact sheet of the trust of dogs. One of the most important things to avoid is to leave the dogs alone on the property for long periods of time. This is when they are most likely bark and cause damage. Benji, I think your answer is a little harsh. Okay, they have a pet, but as long as the house is well maintained and agreements can be reached, that shouldn`t be okay. As a tenant (and a very good tenant), I think it would be better to sit down and chat rather than publish an eviction notice of what you say, it seems you`ve had a bad experience, but remember, there are a lot of good tenants like me, I pay my rent one week in advance each month , all the small repairs I`ve done myself.
