Finding a rental property in Eden, Bega or Merimbula that allows pets can be difficult. Many landlords in the area are skeptical when it comes to letting pets in their rental properties. Here are some tips to help you find a pet-friendly property.
1. Before getting your hopes up and wasting everyone’s time (including your own), ask the real estate if pets are allowed in the rental property.
2. Talk to the property manager. They often know the landlord personally, and whether or not they may allow certain pets (like birds, or small dogs).
3. Don’t look at units or townhouses. They are managed differently and will not allow pets to live on the premises.
4. Include a few extra items in your application to ease the landlords mind. These can include a photo, a pet-bond and any written references from past landlords in regards to your pet.
