Title: Pets and your tenancy (Links to English resource)
Summary: The Residential Tenancies Act 1997, which sets out the legal rights and responsibilities of landlords and tenants, doesn’t say anything about keeping pets on a rental property. However, many leases have a ‘no pets’ clause that prohibits tenants from keeping pets. If you have a pet or intend to get one, you should make sure your landlord agrees to this before you rent the property.
