You need our written permission if you wish to keep pets. Generally, and as long as you have your own garden and a separate entrance to your home, we will not refuse permission to keep a pet (e.g. a cat or dog, apart from dangerous dogs).
We do not give permission to tenants living in blocks of flats with shared communal entrances and communal areas.
However, if you do keep a pet, you must make sure it does not cause a nuisance to your neighbours. If you keep an animal, we would expect you to make sure that it does not foul your garden or common areas, does not make excessive noise and is kept under control by you and your family and does not cause damage to the property or the communal areas. If we do receive complaints from neighbours about your pets we may ask you to remove them from your property.
Tenants living in our retirement housing schemes are not allowed to keep pets other than small caged animals. Permission has to be granted by the Scheme Manager in advance.
