Government scraps Tenancy Agreement banning pets

The move was welcomed by pet groups as it allowed more people renting in England to keep ‘well-behaved’ pets and prevents landlords from issuing blanket bans

The government has announced it will be scrapping a new Tenancy Agreement which would have allowed landlords to enforce a “blanket ban” on pets.

Under the new agreement, consent for pets will be the default position and landlords will have to object in writing within 28 days of a written pet request from a tenant.
