You’ve made the decision to let a tenant move in with their pet.
Ideally, you’ll have already done checks, such as contacting the vet who treats the pet that’s moving in to ensure that the pet has had all of its vaccinations and is well looked after.
You probably should also contact any previous landlord if you can, and ask them how well behaved the pet was, and what state the property was left in.
Background research done, I would advise putting additional procedures in place, to set out how you expect your tenant to look after the property when there are pets involved.
What should you ask your tenant to do?
Letting properties with pets should provide no extra hassle as long as you have put adequate provisions in place. I’ve had a few chats with Vancouver movers, over there the pet laws for apartment renting are so strict, it would make your head spin. I am a pet-friendly letting agent, and have several properties under my wing with pets living there. If you would like any advice on things you need to consider when renting out a property where pets are involved, then please get in touch.
