Let with Pets

Landlords who exclude pet owners from their properties are missing out on a large chunk of the rental market. It’s estimated that 43% of the population currently own a pet and almost 5 million people live in privately rented accommodation in the UK. Yet few landlords will rent their properties to tenants with pets. By adopting a pet friendly approach, you can easily increase demand for your property and attract long-term, responsible tenants.

Dogs Trust’s Lets with Pets campaign aims to make the process of privately renting with pets easier for tenants while highlighting the benefits to landlords and letting agencies, such as attracting long term tenants and expanding their rental market.

As the UK’s largest dog welfare charity, Dogs Trust receives many enquiries from pet owners who are struggling to find privately rented accommodation that will accept their pets. All too often people are forced to live in unsuitable properties or keep pets without consent from their landlord. In some extreme cases, owners are even having to give up their pets or else face becoming homeless.

In a recent survey by Dogs Trust:

78% of pet owners reported that they had experienced difficulties finding privately rented accommodation that would allow their pets

54% of pet owners were never able to find a suitable rented property that accepted pets

8% of pet owners had to re-home their pet in order to get accommodation

Dogs Trust has launched its Lets with Pets campaign to show landlords and letting agents that renting properties to tenants with pets can be straightforward and does make business sense. By following the simple steps set out here anyone can maximise their property’s rental potential.
