Belvoir Dunstable lends support to Dogs Trust 'Lets with Pets' good practice scheme

Belvoir Dunstable is working with the Dogs Trust to promote pet-friendly properties. We are members of Dogs Trust’s Lets with Pets scheme, which aims to make the process of privately renting with pets easier for tenants, landlords and letting agencies.

We encourage private landlords to take a ‘Pets Considered’ approach, rather than enforcing a blanket ban on pets.

There is a real need for more pet-friendly rentals and we hope that by following Lets with Pets’ advice, we can improve the situation. We’ll work with landlords and responsible pet-owning tenants to add pet clauses into contracts. Through simple steps advised by Lets with Pets - such as taking a higher deposit and regular checks – we hope to help lots of pet-owners find homes

Pet owners tend to sign longer rental contracts because it simply is so hard to find anywhere – so landlords are missing out on responsible, long-term tenancy opportunities.

The website www.letswithpets.org.uk offers downloadable advice booklets and practical tips for landlords, letting agents and tenants.

Any landlord seeking more information on the benefits of the scheme is welcome to contact Daniel at Belvoir Lettings Dunstable.
