Jenrick overhauls tenancy agreement to help end pet bans

There is also the issue of the main lease with the Freeholder (if it's a Freehold property). I have a flat, which I rent out. Being an animal lover I don't have a problem with tenants owning pets, however in the main lease the Freeholder of the building clearly states that no pets are allowed in the building so even if I wanted to allow pets I would be in trouble with the Freeholder if I allowed it.

While some people may have voted to leave the EU because they didn't want to become part of a "united states of Europe" personally I would rather be in the untied states of Europe than the United States of America with it's poor record on environmental issues, animal welfare and human rights.
I really don't think you should be advising people how to vote in the elections. People should do their own research and vote for the party they feel best meets the needs of the people.... Read More

Fortunately I have not yet had to claim from an outgoing tenant but it does raise the question - is it worth taking a deposit in the first place under the current system?... Read More
