If I allow pets at my property, what expectations will be given to the tenant?
We always sign pet conditions with your tenant on their tenancy agreement. This obligates them in 4 ways:
1. No additional pet may occupy the property without prior permission.
2. The pet may not come inside the property.
3. The pet must be removed from the property if it becomes annoying or bothersome to neighbours (after reasonable warning has been given in writing).
4. The tenant must be responsible for any damage caused by their pet, and remove any rubbish or faeces deposited by the pet. A pet bond is taken when they sign up. The tenant is also required to fumigate the property both internally and externally upon vacating the property and provide proof of receipt. A pet bond is taken when they sign up ($260).
We also record the details of the pet on the agreement, which is then signed by the tenant.
