Estate agency teams up with the Dogs Trust to make life easier for pet-loving tenants
The London estate agency Faron Sutaria has joined the Dogs Trust's ‘Lets with Pets’ scheme, which encourages landlords and lettings agencies to accept tenants with pets and make the house-hunting process easier for pet owners. As a condition for joining the scheme, the agent asks each landlord if they would consider letting their property to a pet owner, and pet friendly properties are clearly indicated in the listings.
Karen Kaldezar, director of Faron Sutaria, said: "London has become much more dog friendly in recent years and I have certainly experienced more tenants asking whether a Landlord would allow a pet. I am very pleased we have joined the 'Lets with Pets' scheme, as many of our Landlords are open to letting their properties to pet owners, especially as they are likely to stay for a longer period.”
Kristina Salceanu from London Relocation Ltd welcomed the news. She said: “About 50% of our clients relocating to London do so with pets and we have a specialist pet relocation service, so it will certainly make our lives easier knowing we can contact Faron Sutaria for a list of pet friendly rental properties to add to our shortlist. I have helped find homes for a pair of parrots, plenty of cats and small dogs, and know how important it is to find a new home not just for our clients but for their precious animals too. It is always great fun drawing up a Pet CV complete with photos, and owners are happy to provide Pet References and pay a higher deposit for the landlord’s peace of mind.”
