Hunting a Rental Property in Edinburgh Where Pet is Allowed

By KateForbes Subscribe to RSS | January 31st 2012 | Views:

Searching a house can be a little rough for people with pets. Majority of the landowners particularly highlight that tenants with pets are not welcome. Generally because they panic that it might cause damage to their furniture, leave flea infestations. Another reason why landlords won’t allow pets is that, most landlords are themselves leaseholders and are bound by the terms of the lease.

In order to find a property which welcomes to the pets, there are certain aspects which you must consider.

While entering into contract with the landlords, a huge number of letting agencies insert in a clause, according to which they will not withhold consent for a pet unless it is unreasonable. It is very important that you must always be upfront and honest with the landlord; he might even appreciate this and welcome your pet.

Ground floors: For people with dogs, renting can turn out to be a dog’s life. Living with cats in a rental property is however easier as compare to the dogs. Majority of the people who have cats with them, they desire to get a flat on the ground floor so that it is easy for the cat to move in and out. Finding such a property is not a simple job. Significantly, having other pets like reptiles, fish etc, is not a bigger problem as they can be restrained in glass cabinets and jars. Thus pets which don’t scratch the furniture and floors and are not hairy are usually not a big issue for the landlords.

Pet rates: Frequently the landowners increase the deposit from six weeks to ten weeks for pet owners. Mostly this step is taken by the landlords to recover the maintenance and repair costs after the tenancy expires. Moreover there is a pet’s clause in such a contract which cover every possible damage a pet might cause, like scratched floors, damaged curtains etc. Even with all these safeguards provided for the landlord, there is shortage of suitable properties which are let to tenants with pets.

Offering extra money: Subsequently there are many investment landlords who are not psychologically and emotionally attached to their property like occupier owners. These landlords might allow pets. Furthermore, you may find a home for you and your pet by paying extra charges to them.

Tips for tenants with pets: It is better you should spend time to look around for properties. If you find an appropriate place with the landlord’s consent to accept your pet, then you should get it fast. This is your obligation to make sure that your pets are obedient and trained, as they will not to give a hard time to the landlord. You have to make sure that you will try to keep all the things in a proper manner. This will put your landlord at ease.
