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

Assistance dog increase?

Don't we have enough stray and abandoned dogs of our own without bringing in more from Portugal? I had two 'low-end' properties in St Helens (Lancs.) Despite a 'no pets' rule in the agreement, both ended up keeping a dog. Both houses suffered from this. Difficult to get rid of a dog once it is in the property, whatever the contract might state.

Just say 'no'. We have a rule at my own home - no dogs allowed. If it's good enough for me, it's good enough for my tenants. My (true) defence is that I suffer from asthma, exacerbated by contact with dogs. I would therefore be unable to give active support to tenants who wished to keep pets. Incidentally, have you ever visited a house with a dog that doesn't smell? (the house, that is, and probably the dog as well! And for dog, read cats and dogs.) James... Read More

In reply to Leah - Of course most Landlords would be happy to accept a genuine working dog. Even I would , as much as I dislike them in general.

It's a con. We're getting to the stage that unless you have some sort of 'disability' then you're not 'normal'. Everyone wants a label. As for having a dog for support - rubbish. They need to learn to live without such a crutch - for their own benefit. If they really believe this, they are going to find the outside world difficult to cope with. Will they ever be able to go abroad? (I bet your tenant will!) Concerts, cinema, shopping in certain shops, etc. etc. You'll be doing them a favour saying no to pets! Harsh? Yes. If you are worried about saying 'no', ask for a doctor's note at the very least.
