Navigating Pet Ownership in Rental Properties

The new rental reforms make it easier for tenants to keep pets, with landlords needing reasonable grounds to refuse pet requests. Landlords can set conditions such as requiring pets to be kept outside or ensuring the property is cleaned and fumigated at the end of the lease. To navigate pet ownership effectively, landlords should create clear pet policies, include pet agreements in leases, and conduct regular property inspections. By being proactive and flexible, landlords can accommodate pet-owning tenants while protecting their properties from potential damage.
