    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.

                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.

                      No way! The current tenant's agreement continues under a periodic tenancy if they don't leave and rent is sitll payable. It is totally your fault if you have let the premises to others without having vacant possession....

                      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...

                      Personally, If I'd left home (rented or otherwise) without notifying anyone and came back to find someone honestly thought I was suicidal to the point they had asked the police to force entry, which I can't imagine is the sort of thing they do lightly, I'd feel thoroughly embarrassed and, assuming the...

                      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.

                      TLDR version: Police have forced entry into my...

                      It's a loss to the landlord arising while the tenant was responsible for the property.
                      It's not necessary for them to have caused the damage themselves or been negligent in any way.

                      The tenant should try and recover the cost from the police (although they might as well not bother...

                      I don't think this is possible and I don't think I would want a tenant who is so short of cash they can't stump up the deposit.

                      The lifetime deposit has got to include some sort of insurance to cover the short fall & the details have not been worked out yet. Bottom line is - its going...

                      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 has been said by others, he does not need to open the door and it appears his mental health is impacting his behaviour to such an extent that it will keep costing you money......... knowing this, he would have to go.The best place for those suffering severe mental health propblems is not the PRS,...

                      Tenant not responsible if police damage the door in my opinion. The tenant didn’t do it why should he pay?

                      If I left to go on a random holiday and told no one and the police were called thinking I was suicidal within the house and they kicked the door down and the landlord tried it on...
