Tenants want pets

04 Mar 2020

At Rent Happily, we do our best to provide a happy experience to the tenants, and we believe having pets is a great opportunity to have a pleasant tenancy, as stated in this article.

We have a successful track record of properties with pets, and we can say without a doubt that tenants who care for an animal also look better after the property, as they tend to make it a home. Also, the presence of a pet provides company and comfort, which is good for the soul and for the mental health of individuals.

We subscribe to the charity Cats Protection, who asserts that tenants with pets tend to stay longer in their property, and in particular cat owners who care for the environment of their pet. You can find a wealth of information on their website: www.cats.org.uk

When the landlord is willing to accept a pet in their property, we supply an Addendum to the Tenancy Agreement -to be electronically signed by the tenant(s)- which contains clauses regarding the care of the pet and the property, and explaining the tenants’ responsibilities.

In addition to the general requirements of the Addendum, we also suggest a couple of options to reassure the landlord: they could ask the tenants to pay one extra week of rent towards their deposit, making it 5 weeks instead of a month, and/or we could get them to contract an Accidental Damage Pet Insurance to cover for potential damages to the property, for extra security. The final conditions are up to the landlord and we will adapt the conditions of the agreement to their requirements.

  • This is our first let with Rent Happily. We have used numerous letting agents in the past and we are amazed by how much better in every department this agency is. The level of organisation and efficiency is fantastic. They really know their stuff and are on top of all the legal, financial and practical details. Their systems work and they are responsive to concerns and queries. The tenant selection process is based on finding a good fit for the landlord, the tenant and the property. The commitment to treating both tenant and landlord fairly is something we far prefer given the lack of ethical standard commonly seen in this business. This approach really takes the stress out of letting out a property. These are qualities we did never expected to find in this business and so we feel very lucky to have found Rent Happily.

The team has been incredibly helpful to find the perfect house for our little family, and, since then, they've been there for us every time we needed them. We can't recommend them enough.

  • Rent Happily has been managing our properties for seven years now. As a team they are fantastic, whether liaising with tenants, keeping up to date with any maintenance when needed, or making sure that we always comply with any new regulations. When we have tenant changeovers, they have been very quick to find new tenants so any void periods have been minimal. I thoroughly recommend their property management services.
