Dogs and Domestic Animals (Accommodation and Protection) Bill 2019-21

I guess 'Mr Speaker' owns his own house (or even houses?) He is not a tenant, and nor would be the vast majority of M.Ps. Lots of crooked thinking and emotional blackmail in that speech.... Read More

Dogs and Domestic Animals (Accommodation and Protection) Bill 2019-21

Oh no! I tried this in the past, and every time the property has suffered. With the best will in the world, there will be problems - try taking a dog out (as you must) on a rainy day.

Hello, Yes, I had a similar problem. Bill from Severn Trent for £4500 to fix leak we had no knowledge of. It was on my tenant's land and our side of the meter - therefore our responsibility. I tried my insurance company and after a lot of fuss, they sent an inspector around to view the (now filled-in) hole. They agreed to pay, less excess. Might be worth a try?... Read More

Cats and dogs policy shortsighted

Good for you. I had a gas company (changing the boiler) leave a property that contained two dogs simply because of the smell. I had to get another firm in to deal with it. They wore face masks! And yes, the agreement stated no pets...... Read More
