It is hereby accepted that this is a permission granted at will, revocable by “The Manager” at any time as provided in the permission.
No pet is allowed to be kept in the property until the Pet Permission have been completed and granted.
Only once permission has been given and all arrangements made and agreed can a tenant bring a pet onto the premises. This
permission is only granted for the specific pet noted on this form and no other.
A new permission should be prepared for each additional pet that is added after the initial permission is granted.
The permission will be revoked in the event that the animal(s) cause a nuisance or injury to any resident of the building (or of
adjoining buildings) or in any way fouls, damages or contaminates the common areas of the buildings (including any external
areas). No animal may be allowed to pass through the internal common areas of the building unless on a suitable leash or
carried and must not be left unattended in the common areas at any time. The resident(s) hereby accepts responsibility for
any loss, injury or damage caused by the animal(s) covered by this permission.
No animals are allowed access to any of the amenity areas of the property; this is to ensure that no inconvenience is caused to
any other resident(s) that maybe using the areas. This term excludes assistance dogs.
This permission will take effect when it has been signed by all resident(s) to confirm acceptance of the terms and conditions
contained herein and by an authorised signatory on behalf of the Landlord.
We require that the apartment is returned in the condition it is provided and that all upholstery has been steam cleaned to
remove any trace of the pet’s hair or pet odour from the property.
Should the resident fall behind with their account payments, the management reserve the right to revoke to the permission with
immediate effect until the account is brought back up to date. The pet would need to be removed from the premises immediately.
Only once permission has been given and the tenancy agreement has been amended and paid can a resident bring a pet onto
the premises.

We require all prospective residents who intend to bring a pet to attend a pet interview. This is the best way to assess whether
the person is a responsible pet owner. During this interview we look for:
• Whether the pet is clean, well-groomed and odour-free
• Whether a dog is calm and responsive to the owner’s commands
• Whether you are in control of your pet without yelling, jerking the leash or hitting the pet
During the pet interview, you may be asked for the following information:
• Pet’s name
• Pet’s sex
• Whether it’s spayed/neutered
• How long you have owned the pet
• Who owned the pet previously (if less than 1 year)
You may also be required to supply a pet reference – preferably from your last landlord – along with a copy of your pet’s
vaccination/medical history.
You may also be asked some questions regarding how you care for your pet. Most of these questions do not have right or
wrong answers. The important thing is that you show yourself to be a responsible pet owner and are comfortable explaining
how you care for your pet. These questions may include:
For all animals:
How do you care for this pet?
Who takes care of the pet when you are away?
Who is your veterinarian (full address and contact details)?
How do you control parasites and fleas (if applicable)?
What is the maximum time that your pet will be left alone?
For dogs:
How often is the dog walked? What kind of regular exercise does the dog get?
Is the dog left alone for extended periods of time? How many hours? Describe the typical situation.
How does the dog amuse him/herself when alone?
Has the dog had any obedience training? Describe what, when, for how long, reaction with other dogs.
How do you deal with the following behaviours: barking/whining, chewing, scratching?
How does the dog behave with other people? Including strangers, children and other dogs.
For cats:
Is the cat reliably litter-box trained?
How often do you change the litter?
What toys does your cat play with?
Does the cat use a scratching post?

We charge an additional monthly sum of £20 including VAT per pet as part of your monthly rent. Your tenancy agreement will
be amended to reflect this.
When you check-out, the property must be returned in the condition it is provided. You must ensure that all upholstery has
been steam cleaned to remove any trace of the pet’s hair or odour.
A maximum of 2 pets are allowed per apartment. This is dependent on the size of the animal(s) and the size of the apartment.
The maximum number of pets allowed is at the discretion of the landlord or their representative.
Pets may not be tied to any fixed object anywhere outside your apartment. You must keep your pet on a leash and under your
supervision when you are outside your apartment.
We may pick up unleashed pets, report them to the proper authorities, or do both.
We will charge you a reasonable fee for picking up and keeping unleashed pets.
Pets must not disturb the neighbours or other residents, regardless of whether the animal is inside or outside the property.
Examples include excessive barking, whining or howling.
“Excessive” is defined as longer in duration than 10 minutes, or 5 minutes of continuous barking more than 3 times a day.
Your pet must be fed and given water inside your apartment. You may not leave food or water outside your apartment at any time.
Your pet should not be left alone in the apartment for periods longer than 6 hours unless it can be demonstrated that the
animal is capable of more extended times.
In no case will the period be greater than 10 hours. If your schedule requires absences of a longer duration, you will engage a
pet carer/walker to take of the animal as required during the day, or arrange for off-premises care, such as doggie day-care.
Pets should be bathed and groomed as necessary and an effective flea and parasite control program carried out if required.
No breeding of the pet shall be permitted on the premises.
In an emergency involving an accident or injury to your animal, we have the right – but not the duty – to take the pet to a
veterinarian for treatment, at your expense.
