1. Background

As a landlord we recognise that well cared for pets can be of benefit to tenants.  We are also aware that pets which are not cared for properly can cause a nuisance to others. 

You may keep a domestic pet or pets in their home provided they are well cared for and kept under proper control.  You do not require our written permission to have a pet as long as it is well looked after and suitable for the property type. 

After noise related issues, complaints about pets and animals is our highest antisocial behaviour issue.  During 2014/15 we had 47 complaints about pets and animals, and this year to date we have had 23.
