Basically I’m moving from Belfast to England for work. I’m married and our pets are like our babies. The thought of even having to leave one of them almost brings me to tears. I have two dogs and a cat – and I have rented before with no problem. Our dogs are even crate trained so they can’t roam the property and cause destruction. Our cat does nothing but go outside or sleep. Why are landlords so put off by good pet owners? Even if one of our pets caused damage and we were irresponsible enough to not fix it, that’s what a deposit is for! I just spoke to a letting agent who said three pets is too much for most landlords. I can understand if the property just isn’t suitable for pets (e.g. a flat or unsuitable back garden) but how can I find a house without having to leave any of my poor pets behind? Any advice would be greatly appreciated!!
PS I have tried looking for private landlords and it’s difficult enough trying to do a long distance move when I have no family or friends in the area.
