    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.

                      A rented flat with a toilet (of course) and basin next to the kitchen, and a bedroom with a quite small en suite - shower/basin/rail for towel ... Is this acceptable in a flat - with no additional separate bathroom?

                      Just had tenants move out of a property after 2 years. Always paid on time, perfectly pleasant young family who have now bought their own home BUT:

                      House was grimy - looks like they didn't clean properly in 2 years rather than anything overtly unpleasant

                      Don't issue a new tenancy agreement if your intention is to move the tenant on.
                      It would start a new tenancy and make any new break clause tricky - particularly if the tenant notices it's there and refuses to sign it.

                      My tenant who is 4 months into her tenancy agreement has moved her partner in without permission and Im wondering can use this to issue a new tenancy agreement with his name on it. She isn't the easiest tenant and I would also like to add an agreement break to the new tenancy because of the difficulty...

                      Unless it's in A selective licensing area it will be of no interest to the council anyway.

                      Don't do it, if you create another tenancy, it will prolong it, if you have (assumed) provided a 12 month AST then Serve notice when it expires.

                      Arranging the cupboards, should be noted in any inspections and notify they T that they need to return the property back to how it was in the...

                      In reality I don’t think the tenant really needs your permission to mover her other half into the property. You might have something down in the tenancy agreement about who’s to occupy the property but the reality is that you’d need to go to court to enforce any such clause. You can suggest a...

                      Would recommend to get a lodger rather than a T, if it's your only place to live. It may not bring the income you wanted, but if your renting a place to live in yourself, the difference wouldn't be so great. Also your mortgage/ Insurance etc would need to be notified that it's no longer your primary...

                      I recently read of these forums that you can get a AST form with a clause that you can evict a tenant if you want your property back because its your only place to live .
                      What was that clause and how does it work ?
