While you are permitted to keep most types of domestic pets in your home, the Pets Policy must be adhered to. This requires you to disclose details of any pets when you are moving into your property.
While a tenant, the following terms and conditions must be adhered to in regard to keeping pets:
- Written permission must be obtained if it is proposed to keep more than one domestic pet
- Pets such as cats or dogs, are not permitted in flats with communal entrances and passageways
- Dogs are not permitted in flats above ground floor level unless the flat has its own private entrance and enclosed garden
- It is an offence to allow any breed of dog to be dangerously out of control in a public place
You are responsible for the behaviour of your pets and should ensure any pets do not cause nuisance to neighbours or visitors. If you are away from the property for a period of time you should make arrangements for the care of the pet while you are away, e.g. on holiday.
