Difficulties to rent with pets / question

I would like to know why is it so difficult to rent with pets ( we have a cat and a dog) and we are looking to rent in Perth since August 2013 and still nothing! always "no pets" or "landlord wont allow pets" when we ask for more information.... honestly I cannot understand why. We offer to pay more rent, double deposit, deposit for the pets...everything and it's always a no. My question is, we know a landlord who is using an agency to rent a flat, we contacted that agency to know about pets and they said " the landlord won't allow pets".. funny thing is, we asked him and he is ok with pets, he knows our dog and cat and he would happily rent the flat to us... the issue is with the agency. Is there anything the landlord or us can do in this situation? It's already very hard to find something that allows pets, and if the agency is lying to us... Sorry for the long post, quite desperate after more than 6 month looking for something any help is very welcome! thank you

  • I am having the same problems in hampshire so many houses but aiways no pets and you right sometimes the agents dont even ask the landlords the question very frustrating i always say honesty is the best policy and i am always telling agents that we have 2 dogs, try expanding your search area slightly, we have looked at a couple of properties that will take our dogs just by looking a bit further out of our search area hope this helps
