Tenancy agreement: can I keep a pet?

In the majority of cases, you do not need our permission to keep a pet in your home.

A pet is classified as a domestic animal such as cats, dogs and guinea pigs. Farm animals, such as goats, donkeys and pigs are not considered to be pets and cannot be kept in your home or garden.

Any animal living at your property must not cause a nuisance or pose a health and safety risk to your neighbours or any visitors to your home. We have the right to ask you to re-home an animal that is causing a nuisance or poses a health and safety risk.
