Are You Pet Friendly?<< Back to Blog
A pet friendly property can generate more prospective tenant interest, achieve top market rental value and reduce vacancy periods… At some stage in our lives most of us have owned a pet. However, when it comes to renting out a property to tenants who have pets, we can often be cautious and in some cases refuse pets.
There are many tenants who have pets that are excellent and keep the property in a first class condition. The decision on whether you choose to accept pets or not is a personal decision for each property owner. However, it is important to be aware that being pet friendly can create more interest in a property, often achieve the highest possible market rent and ensure that the property is rented in the quickest possible time.
Pets are like tenants! They must come with references. There is a stigma that pets can cause increased wear and tear on the property, as well as attracting noise complaints. But when you think about it – these issues can also arise with tenants who do not have pets.
