📱 Last week, members of the House of Lords quizzed the UK Government on what it is doing to encourage Landlords to be more pet friendly:

💬 Lord Black - states that 1 million households that would like to have a cat cannot do so 🐈
💬 Lord Berkley - is encouraging wider use of pet CVs to allow more responsible pet owners the opportunity to rent 📜
💬 Lord Flight - Tenants should have the chance to be interviewed so that their case can be individually assessed 🔍
💬 Baroness Gardner - "What will the UK Government do to help allay Landlords’ concerns over the inadequacy of a five-week Deposit?" đŸ€”
💬 Timothy Douglas of Propertymark - "Policymakers must recognise the effect of the UK Government’s decision to cap Tenancy Deposits under the Tenant Fees Act - even the best-behaved pets can have an impact on a property, therefore Landlords and Letting Agents need to be able to safeguard against damage" 🙅‍♂

Earlier in the year, the UK Government updated its Model Tenancy Agreement to encourage Landlords to allow pets - you can DOWNLOAD the Agreement as a PDF here: https://lnkd.in/dDFQpPG đŸ“©
