If there are pets involved then PlanetRent can help you to generate the appropraite tenancy agreement, and fast! If you aren't pet-friendly then maybe it is something that you should consider. This is becausealmost half of us own a pet. For the rental sector, that is a major potential pool of tenants and is one that the Government is actively encouraging landlords to acknowledge. In January 2020, then Housing Secretary Robert Jenrick announced the overhaul of model tenancy contracts to remove restrictions on well-behaved pets. This was done to ensure that more landlords can accommodate pet owners wherever possible.
Despite being a national of animal lovers, however, there is a prevalent attitude in the buy-to-let sector that pets can be a problem. Even with the new legislation, very few landlords were advertising their property as suitable for pets. This makes it difficult hard for potential tenants to find a suitable home for themselves and for their pets.
Institutional landlords in the build-to-rent sector have a completely different attitude. The investors whom we deal with at Ringley actively encourage pets. They are of the opinion that being pet-friendly encourages tenants to stay longer and promotes community engagement.
Because of this, we’ve made it really simple for landlords to generate a pet-friendly tenancy agreement. This is via our automated lettings platform PlanetRent.
Landlords can use the platform to generate tenancy agreements in a matter of minutes. They are readily accessible and easy to use. These agreements take into account the fact that, by being pet-friendly, landlords may be opening themselves up to bigger bills for cleaning, repairs and refurbishment at the end of the tenancy. Pets, not unlike people, can be badly behaved, so reference checking is vital. PlanetRent can make this quick and easy too.
Why not consider taking a more pet-friendly approach to potential tenants? It could make your property easier to let and will give you a much larger selection of potential tenants to pick from. Please see more at www.planetrent.co.uk
