Time for landlords to reconsider renters with pets

Uncategorized | 0 comments | by admin

The Animal Welfare League recently published an article in which I commented that with record low rental yields nationally, property investors should open their eyes to the benefits of renting their investment properties to tenants with pets that have good references.

I am proud that First National Real Estate’s property managers take additional steps to protect a landlord’s interests such as adding specific clauses to the lease, requiring annual steam cleaning of carpets, and in some states, negotiating a pet bond.

Good tenants understand these are realistic trade-offs that help their landlord to feel more confident about their intentions. I hope you agree and for more facts on pet ownership in Australia, read more here.
