Uniquely - the homes that I've seen had a reasonable backyard for a 'large family' and said a lot of things like 'room to move' and 'plenty of space'...'big yard' and the like then at the very end 'sorry no pets' - and it's a real let down.
Yes tenants should look for homes that would allow pets, but it's a lot harder than you think when there seems to be A LOT of properties that don't allow pets! And sometimes the need for a home for the family is greater than the need for a pet friendly home....so unfortunately sometimes the pets get the boot and I think that's a real shame. If you advertise for a family to live there, then you gotta know that A LOT if not most families have at least one pet.
But ah well....owner's house and all that so they have a choice, I just think it's unreasonable, especially when, as I said before, kids do more damage most of the time - next we'll see clauses of 'sorry no young children' LOL
I'm glad the owners of our house allow us to have our pets....it's nice for the kids
