TIPS FOR RENTING WITH PETS

By Emily Upton

Happy pet day!

To celebrate today and our furry friends, we’ve got our five tips for how to find a rental property when you have pets.

  1. Have a pet reference

If you have a good relationship with your neighbor and they love your pet, ask them to provide a reference vouching for your pet’s behavior. Having this reference is always a good start, especially if you live in a unit block.

  1. Create a personal pet profile

If you can provide a reference that has important details in your application, you’ll be ahead of the game. The reference can include:

  •         Your pet’s name
  •         A photo
  •         Their age
  •         If your pet is micro-chipped
  •         Whether your pet is desexed
  •         What training school your pet attended – if applicable
  1. Rental History

Obtaining a reference from your previous landlord or real estate agent is a great advantage. If your previous landlord or real estate agent can say your pet was a good tenant and didn’t damage the property, you’ll have a better chance of getting the property you’re applying for.

  1. The right space

When looking at properties, it’s best to think “is this the right space for me and my pet?”

Being in a new environment can sometimes be difficult for pets to adjust to, but having a space that doesn’t fit both you and your pet can make the adjustment period that much harder.

Make sure when looking at properties the space is the appropriate size for your pet – having a Great Dane in a one-bedroom apartment may not be the most comfortable experience!

  1. Security is key

Having a lost pet is never a fun situation. It’s important to ensure the property is always secure when moving in with a pet.
