    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.

                      You might as well grant them an Assured Shorthold Tenancy ('AST')because, unless you charge them less than £100 a year, it's going to be deemed to be an AST in any case. Perhaps grant it for 2 years then it can be a rolling periodic for the 3rd year if needed. Friend or not though you are going to...

                      I cannot find a definitive answer to my question by googling so here goes.

                      I have a house that I wish to allow a family who are close friends to live in while I live abroad as UK non-resident. I am trying to work out what sort of contract I should make between us.

                      by Shorif908
                      Hi All,

                      Long story short, my agent of the last 18 months we have decided to depart ways.

                      I have most documents the only thing I don't have is documents related to the DPS.

                      I dont have the certificate so I dont know the deposit ID. The estate agent claims that...

                      As jkpeates points out it would not. Is this going to be your first rental property and have you done any research into what being a landlord entails? Please don’t just say you’re going to use a letting agent....

                      by artin

                      I'm looking to buy a maisonette to let as investment. It 's currently rented on AST contract, until April 2023. So ongoing tenancy.

                      Is it advisable to do such, buy a tenanted property?

                      We have literally just relet our bungalow. The agent who handled the new let and the previous one, which only lasted a year due to the tenant having to go to a care home, asked for the initial inspection report from 10 years ago to apparently check against the new one done in May 21 . The whole place...

                      I have asked the neighbour politely several times and so has my gardener but just got a tirade of foul language as apparently she doesn't want to look at the flank wall of my bungalow and prefers the ivy.

                      Here is another bit of pending legislation/government spittle that has been ill thought through.

                      My kid has a tenancy which includes Council Tax and Energy as part of the rent. Her rent has gone up a lot as a result of increased cost of these inclusions.
