    Hmm. I'm thinking that might work as well as tenant references, if they give a good one to get rid of Fido.
    To save them chiming in, JPKeates, Theartfullodger, Boletus, Mindthegap, Macromia, Holy Cow & Ted.E.Bear think the opposite of me on almost every subject.

      When I rented between selling one property and buying another, everywhere said "no pets". I simply showed up, offered on the flat, explained I had a dog and offered to pay six months' rent in advance, and that worked. But if you can't afford to do that, it's totally unfair that you can't have a dog.

      I would accept tenants with a dog. I would only accept a cat if it were an unfurnished let or if the deposit was more than the cost of all the furniture, because those pesky cats use their nasty claws to pick at all the furniture. But in principle, renters should be allowed pets.
      Renters have less choice as they do not own the house and forfeit the right to have pets. If you want to gain parity you need to perhaps consider buying a house. If your income in inadequate change jobs .Incidentally dogs ae not essential, unless you have a disability .I do like dogs and would not want one in my house.-and, although several of my tenants have dogs I do vet the dogs and particularly their owners.Many let dogs defecate in gardens and do not remove the turds that ensue-walking the dog is an anathema..

        I have my own dog and I am an owner occupier, and I have had no damage of any sorts. Here's my little poppet on my bed this morning. She's nearly 14.

        I can't imagine how a dog can damage skirting boards, architraves, doors, or floors. Carpets yes, if the dog is not house trained.

        I'm so sorry JK0 that you have had such bad experiences of dogs.
        You have illustrated the manner in which dogs are indulged by some owners-having dogs on or in beds would be proscribed in my household.

          Let's face it, it just more rules imposed on us all which in the end will keep chipping away at the PRS and cause more landlords to sell up and raise rents even more, cause and effect. It's just so simple.

              I’ve seen a dog totally destroy a house, where there shouldn’t have been any pets at all. The tenants got a staffy and it ATE (eaten) the kitchen units, doors, architraves, stairs, even the PVC door at the back of the property.
              the landlord was totally heart broken when he saw the house. It was his family home that he rented out.

              im not a dog lover at all, but I can see why people like them. However, I still don’t understand why someone would want to bring an animal into their home.

                Turning that round a little, a great proportion of the issues that we encounter as issues on the forum(s) would be avoided if people didn't rent out their own homes.
                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).

                      My dog has slept on my bed every night for the last 13.5 years.

                      I'm not sure why you think that is a problem?

                      In fact, my dog sleeps on top of a duvet cover that I bought in Harrods, the brand is Celsos de Limos, from Portugal, and the duvet cover alone cost me £1,400. What's the problem exactly?????

                        I simply would not allow a dog to sleep on my bed. .Dogs are animals and to treat them otherwise removes their dignity. Anthropomorphism is a human indulgence .Thankyou for stressing you have sufficient funds to buy from Harrods-very impressive .I buy textiles from Iberia,and have accounts with Poundstretchers of Oporto ,Lidl of Lisbon, and Aldi of Amarante..My friends with dogs stick them on the floor with £1 blankets from charity shops.

                          Pay for it!

                          I've just had a £5K vet bill. I don't expect everyone else to pay for it.

                            No wonder tenants think landlords are caning it. For £5000 you feed many hungry children-at £25 per week for four years.

                              If you can’t afford something, you don’t have the right to the same. If you can’t afford your own home then that means you can’t have the luxuries that come with that.
                              i can’t afford a lamborghini aventador, does that mean I have the right to one? This is the attitude that’s killing this country in my opinion, ive said in on here before. Why do people think they have a right to something just for being able to breathe.

                                What do you think is a reasonable vet bill for keeping a male Giant Panda?

                                Their accommodation and feeding costs are high as well but they pay for themselves with the stud fees.

                                  Hi was hoping for some advise.
                                  I have tentants in my property on a AST agreement which started in 2013 and has been rolling to date. Tenants are behind on their rent by a couple of months (during covid times which they believe they still do not need to pay) and also always late on monthly payments...

                                  I have a hearing scheduled to evict my tenant using a Section 8 notice.

                                  I have lodged my claim online (PCOL), but what other documents will I require?

                                  Tenancy Agreement
                                  S8 and Certificate of Service

                                  Serving a notice (S21 or S8) does not mean the T's will leave when the date on the notice expires, only the courts can do this. The only advantage is the notice is shorter with a S8 then a S21, but a S21 if it is valid, the courts would have to grant possession, while a S8 they do not have to.
