At YourPlace Housing we love meeting tenants’ pets, they can be great companions and beneficial to reducing loneliness and great for our general wellbeing.
We have recently reviewed our pet policy and it can be accessed on our website or by requesting a copy which we can post or email to you.
It is really important that you get permission from us before you bring a furry, or not so furry, friend home.
You should always carefully consider what type of pet you want, what will be needed to properly care for them, how much time and attention the pet needs, and how much it will cost you to keep, because they can be expensive companions to care for.
If you are thinking about getting a pet, please contact your tenancy officer who can talk to you about the next steps and provide you with an application form.
Before agreeing to you keeping a pet, YourPlace housing will consider things like, how many pets are already kept at the property and the suitability of the property to house a particular pet, before giving permission.
You will be required to sign an agreement to register, neuter and vaccinate, where applicable, and provide appropriate care to your pet. It is also important that you agree to clean up after your pet, not allow any damage to the property to occur or be a nuisance to your neighbours, and of course love them like a best friend.
