Does dog clause stack up legally?Make Text Bigger
I have new tenants who indicated they may want to keep a dog at the property for which we would make an additional charge in the form of a higher monthly rent.
The tenants decided not to go with it at the start of the tenancy, so we added a clause in the AST stating it was an option to add a dog by informing us, at which point the additional amount would apply. The additional amount was indicated in the clause.
My question is, does this stack up legally or could it come back to bite me?
The tenant now has a dog and has said they will pay the additional amount as agreed.
The tenancy is in month 7 of a 12 month agreement.
