By accepting tenants with pets, landlords can increase demand for properties and attract long-term, responsible tenants, according to ‘Lets with Pets’ – a national scheme by the Dogs Trust. Keats is pleased to be a pet friendly letting agency and we follow the good practice guides provided by Lets with Pets.
There is high demand for pet friendly lettings and we are finding that more landlords are becoming aware of this. At Keats, many of our landlords consider taking pets on a case by case basis. Some may have a preference towards dogs or cats, and usually just one or two pets per property.
Jon Pepper, Lettings Director commented: “We take on properties that are pet friendly in Haslemere, Liphook and the surrounding villages. We would like to add more to our rental portfolio to meet tenant requirements. Our area attracts many dog owners as there are fabulous walks to be had across Black Down, Waggoners Wells, Linchmere Common, and more.
“When it comes to tenants with pets, we have a pet clause in our tenancy agreement, which has to be adhered to. Tenants are asked to complete a pet CV before moving into a property, so pets are always included in the initial lettings process.
“For landlords, we provide as much information as possible about the pet and their owner, so they are fully informed. An increased deposit is always taken for a pet friendly let for extra peace of mind.”
