Pets in Rental Properties.

I am finding it impossible to find a rental property that will accept my cat. It's getting to the point where he will have to go to the cat shelter. What can I do?

  • Some landlords offer a pet rent. Say for example an extra £20 a month. Ask if they would be willing to do that, as some landlord will allow a animal if they are getting more rent to cover potential damage an animal may do.

  • Hi Helen, It can be hard to find somewhere that will let you rent when you are bringing an animal, but there are ways to get around the issue. As mentioned above, you could think about offering a landlord an extra month's rent in advance, or a security deposit larger than that which is required just to give them that extra little bit of peace of mind that their property will not be damaged and them left to foot a sky-high bill. Your other option is to look at the website This is a site from the Dogs' Trust that has a list of different agents and landlords in different areas around the UK who are happy to work with people who have pets. Hopefully this will help you find someone in your area who an give you the chance to rent a home. Many thanks, Scott
