What About Pets? - EP062
Nov 20 2017
There’s a reason why dogs are known as ‘man’s best friend.’ Ask anyone who has owned a beloved animal, and they will tell you that pets are family. A proposed change to the Residential Tenancies Act would recognize this by banning unreasonable ‘no pets’ clauses in tenancy agreements. Toni starts by explaining the challenges around repairing any damage caused by pets in a rental property. From deep scratches on a wood floor to the smell caused by accidents on the carpet, there are costs associated with maintaining apartments inhabited by animals. Toni discusses how landlords currently approach pets in their rental properties, often denying applications from pet owners in favor of tenants without pets. She also covers the importance of choosing a size-appropriate rental property for your pets: It’s never a good idea to leave a large dog by itself in a small apartment all day while you’re at work. Toni wraps the podcast with advice about making you and your animal attractive to prospective landlords. Listen in and learn how to win over a property owner so that you and your ‘best friend’ are welcome tenants.
