The question if we can allow a cat or a dog at a certain property depends on what instructions we have received from the owner who has given us the property to manage. It also depends on factors like if the property is fenced etc. i.e., if we believe it is suitable for the particular animal in question. We will always only allow a dog or a cat, if our tenant is happy to commit to the following condition in writing (example):
“The landlord will allow the tenant to keep one cat under the condition that the tenant agrees to make good any damage or deterioration whatsoever caused by the animal. This exception may also be cancelled at any time, if any such damage occurs or if complaints are received that the animal is a nuisance to others or not kept and controlled in an appropriate way. This permission is also only granted on the condition that the tenant agrees to have the carpets professionally cleaned by CARPET TECH Phone: 021-0418982 06-8444320) upon vacating the property as there may be health and safety issues arising out of having the dog on the property. (allergies of future tenants)
The reason is as explained above that the next tenant may have an allergy. Also, we insist on carpets cleaned by ENVIRO as we know they are cost effective and do a good job. Not all carpet cleaning companies are created equal and a rug doctor will certainly not suffice. To have a pet is s privilege, not a right by nature. We don’t mind pets at all, but we the owner of the property does not want to pay for any consequences and the next tenant can expect a clean and healthy home to move into.
