    Cant accept visitors with pets

    Hello everyone,

    I am new here and I hope someone will be able to answer my question and help me out. My sister lives in rented property (flat) and she asked her landlord for a permission to accommodate my other sister with two dog for Christmas period. Landlord said he is ok with it but management of the building ( 3 older ladies ) said they don’t agree and my sister can’t come over with dogs. My question is…is there anything I can do to help her out? Is there any kind of law or regulations I can confront management with so they will allow the dogs?

    thank you

    The building management would have to take it up with the landlord, as they have no relationship with the tenant, who has the landlord’s permission, which is all she needs.

    On the other hand, if the landlords lease doesn’t allow animals to stay there, they may try to compel the landlord to evict your sister.
    When I post, I am expressing an opinion - feel free to disagree, I have been wrong before.
    Please don't act on my suggestions without checking with a grown-up (ideally some kind of expert).


      Your sister could put them in kenels over Xmas.


        I wouldnt want a pet in unfamiliar surroundings next to my flat if I was living there - and certainly not over Christmas.

        My views are my own - you may not agree with them. I tend say things as I see them and I don't do "political correctness". Just because we may not agree you can still buy me a pint lol


          The LL shouldn't have agreed without reading the lease, if there is a no pet policy, then the management company are within their rights to enforce it, as the LL would be in breach of the terms.

          You are better off finding another person to look after the dogs, or you both spend xmas in a place where pets are allowed (cottage).


            If the tenancy or the building management say no pets, they mean no pets end of.
            I had the same a dad brought his small dog in the house for the weekend and destroyed the laminate.


              Does your sister think she might ever want a good reference?

              Sadly thanks to Thatcher's 1988 Housing act a landlord may evict a tenant for no reason at all. No reason required.

              Apologies but just wanting to point out reality.

              Best wishes to all & all pets.
              I am legally unqualified: If you need to rely on advice check it with a suitable authority - eg a solicitor specialising in landlord/tenant law...



                A bit tiresome you keep quoting Thatcher lol - I think we've picked up on your dislike lol

                Better simply to stick to the terms of the Lease.
                My views are my own - you may not agree with them. I tend say things as I see them and I don't do "political correctness". Just because we may not agree you can still buy me a pint lol


                  Landlord is the relevant party and presumably knows his lease so as long as she has his consent there's no problem and it certainly won't affect any reference
                  Just because 3 old biddies are worried about their cats doesn't mean they can dictate rules


                    It is not usual for visitors to bring pets. I am quite old and no vistors have ever asked to bring pets to my home.

                      If the tenancy ended tomorrow, the damage would be claimed from the tenant.

                      They're responsible for what happens in the property while they're living there - just as an owner would be responsible, if the same thing happened to them....

                      Apologies if something similar has already been covered elsewhere. I did try to search but couldn't find anything that matched my situation particularly closely. A huge thanks in advance to any of you who do take the time to read and advise.

                      But where do I stand legally?

                      If tenants agree to leave as per email, but they don't actually leave, meanwhile new tenant is due to move in. Can I claim all costs, including new tenants claims from me, from existing tenants?

                      I don't market properties until the tenants have left - properties full of tenants' possessions aren't at their best, and there made be things you need to do to smarten it up or fix.

                      It's not actually possible for a tenant to give valid notice during a fixed term, so you couldn't rely on...

                      I am a landlord with a tenancy fixed term ending in March. My tenants emailed to say they will be leaving, giving two month notice.

                      I will be marketing the property to find new tenants. How do I know that am I protected from the event of the tenants staying beyond...

                      You'd be dependent on the landlord transferring the deposit (assuming it's possible).

                      I use the DPS, but don't want to mess up my account trying to see if it's possible.

                      I’m currently looking for a new tenant (not using an agent). Something a prospective tenant has mentioned is the deposit being transferred from their current tenancy to their new one via the DPS.

                      Has anyone had experience of this working in practice, I’ve read online about the concept...

                      As you’ve pointed out, even if it is possible, it isn’t practical. The current landlord won’t release the deposit before you’d want it ie before the tenancy starts. Sounds to me like the tenant hasn’t saved up a deposit in anticipation for the move....

                      Any normal person would open the door to check what is going on. He heard them breaking the door and still did not open. I would evict....

                      True as that might be, is there not an obligation on him to take reasonable care of my property while he resides there? When even the neighbours say they heard the police's attempts to get the tenant to open the door and then force entry, surely it's not unreasonable to expect that the tenant should...
