Pets in Rental Homes: A Landlord’s Decision

By Ben Faulks

If you're the owner of houses for rent in Belconnen, chances are you've been approached by potential tenants asking the age-old question that every landlord faces – can I bring my pet with me?

Giving serious thought to the idea could be a great opportunity for you to secure great tenants who will be reliable, long-term, and trustworthy. Often, people who own pets have a reputation for responsibility and can be expected to pay their rent on time and in full.

Furthermore, tenants with pets will often remain in one place of accommodation for longer than those without. This is purely to do with the difficulty of finding landlords who are willing to allow them to keep pets, making your property something to hold on to for as long as possible.

This could also allow you to build a closer, more friendly relationship with your tenants – leading to a more harmonious experience for both parties overall.

However, remember that each and every tenant and situation is different. You still retain complete control over what animals you will and won't allow. Taking the time to get to know a tenant and their pet could help you to make the right decision.
