PM advertises prospective tenants with animals will be ‘considered’

Dog loving Prime Minister, Boris Johnson, has advertised his Oxfordshire cottage for rent at £4,250 a month with the listing confirming prospective tenants with animals will be ‘considered’.

It remains to be seen how ‘considered’ a pet-owning tenant will be in his £1.2 million Grade II-listed 4-bed family cottage. Although it has been specified as unfinished. The property has a heated swimming pool, tennis court and views of the Buckinghamshire countryside and the minimum rental term is for 12 months.

Boris purchased the property with his ex-wife Marina Wheeler for £690,000 in 2003

It will be interesting to see if Boris’s experience in letting this property, especially if the tenants have pets, will affect his views and policies towards landlords in general.

We LLs NEEEED to, somehow (collectively), get this property. It would be the cheapest, quickest, easiest way to get positive policy change within the industry if we f**k him up royally using every last dirty -literally- trick in the tenant playbook!

It would be ironic if the house was rented, deposit and first months rent paid and then no rent paid after that. I wonder if the same rules will apply to Boris as they do to the rest of us or will some government heavies arrive move the offending tenant on? I imagine that he may have an opinion if he was owed £25,500 before any form of proceedings were allowed?

Not only do I allow pets in my properties value £250k-850k most of my tenants now have rescue dogs from my small Portuguese charity. As do their families, neighbours and mates!

We keep our tenants for decades!
