Hastoe actively promotes pet ownership where facilities allow, as we recognise the positive impact that pets can make to our residents' lives and well being. Irresponsible pet ownership can cause suffering to animals and nuisance to neighbours. We have produced some helpful guidance on pets to go with our tenancy agreements.
The following guides are available:
If you live in a flat or maisonette, you must ask our permission before obtaining any pets.
For dogs and cats
If you live in a house, bungalow or ground floor flat that has direct access to a garden that is for your sole use, you can keep one cat and/or dog without asking our permission. For all other flats and maisonettes, you need our written permission to keep any pet.
No dogs or cats should be kept in any communal areas, such as landings, hallways, storage cupboards or communal garden areas.
Where permission is requested to keep more than one dog and/or cat, we will judge each case on its individual merits. To do this we will consider such issues as the type of property you live in and the size of your garden as well as the breed, size and number of pets you are asking permission to keep.
If you do have a pet, you must make sure that it is kept under control and does not cause a nuisance or distress to other residents in your area. We may withdraw or deny permission for you to keep a pet if we consider that keeping it will be detrimental to its health or welfare.
