Landlords and tenants are being urged to sign a new online petition calling for the government to better support tenants with pets, ahead of the introduction of the tenant fees ban.
Many pet-owning tenants have a tough time finding a suitable rental home, as few landlords embrace the idea of a pet in their property.
The reasons are understandable given that some animals, such as dogs, can be noisy, smelly and destructive.
However, it is argued that the Tenant Fees Bill is leading the nation of tenants and animal lovers to disaster and will find tenants with pets at an even greater disadvantage against those without as a result of the intention to ban landlords and letting agents from asking tenants to purchase insurance to cover the pet damage in rented property, which is why the petition has been launched.
