Animals and Pets on Your Estate
We know that people really love their pets – but it’s not fair to keep animals in properties which aren’t suitable for them.
That means that you, or anyone that’s living with you, mustn’t keep any animal which isn’t suitable for your home such as livestock, horses or goats – and you keep dangerous snakes, reptiles, spiders or insects in your home either.
Dogs can be allowed as pets in your home – but only if you’ve got direct access to your own garden. Dogs and cats aren’t allowed to be in flats which are three or more floors high. You’re also not allowed to keep dogs which are classed by the law as being dangerous.
If you have got a pet, then you’re responsible for looking after it and taking care of its welfare. That also means cleaning up after your pet so if your dog does foul in a communal area – you need to pick it up and bin it. You’re also responsible for providing and maintaining the fencing that might be needed to keep your pet under control.
If you are dog or cat lover then great – but you can only keep a maximum of two animals in your home.
