How to Search for the Best Pet Friendly Rental Properties

April 18, 2011 | Comments: 0 | Views: 192

If you're a home owner or looking to buy a property, unless you are buying where there is a strata agreement, you should have no issues taking your pet. Your biggest concerns will be around home insurance and other important things for your new home. If you are looking to rent however, the biggest and most stressful task is finding somewhere that both you and your pet are welcome. Here, we've listed our top tips for finding the perfect rental accommodation for both you and your furry friend:

* Begin your search online: There are many different property search tools designed for the purpose of finding properties that are pet friendly. These are a great place to start.

* Have references: It is really important that you have good references to give to your prospective landlord. This is important in any case but especially when you are wanting to also bring your cat or dog with you. The landlord may ask questions about you and your pet combined to decipher how you both are as tenants.

* Never assume you can bring your pet unless otherwise stated: Many people think that if they keep their pet on the low, they won't have any problems. The trouble is, not only is this the wrong thing to do, but you can end up having a neighbour informing the landlord, and be given notice or even loose your bond. Be upfront and honest. If they don't want any of their residents to have pets, then you don't want to live there anyway.

* Be responsible for your pet: Even if a place is pet friendly and you move in, it's important to be a responsible pet owner and consider other residents. If your dog barks during the early hours of the morning, you may want to consider making them wear a citronella collar that sprays when they bark. It's not harmful but dogs hate the smell and will stop barking. You don't want to annoy your neighbours in any case and a few complaints to the strata about your pet could mean that you get evicted before you've even settled in!

* Give your pet toys to play with: Making sure that your pet is kept occupied will mean that the unit/house will have less wear and tear due to your furry room mate. A bored cat can ruin a screen door and a frustrated dog can gnaw and scratch at wooden doors or even rip up carpet.

Contents insurance and all other important things to consider are vital when you have your own place, but often for pet owners, getting their furry friend in the door is the biggest hassle. By taking a few simple steps you should be able to find an ideal place that both you and your pet will be happy living in. I hope you've found our tips useful in helping with your own pet friendly rental property search.
