Good Practice Guidelines

Good Practice Guidelines

Dogs Trust has put together our Lets with Pets Good Practice Guidelines to help you become pet-friendly and set yourselves apart from other landlords in your area. 

Dogs Trust recommends 3 simple steps to become pet-friendly: 

  1. Advertise your properties as ‘Pets Considered’ so you can make a decision on accepting pets on a case by case basis. If you are renting your property through an agency, make sure you tell them you would consider pet owners
  1. Add a pet clause to your standard tenancy agreement when a pet has been agreed. This will go towards protecting both you and your tenant
  1. Ensure any additional deposit taken for the pet is held in an approved tenancy deposit protection scheme

Rent your property successfully to pet owners
