This is Archie and this is my dog and he is a miniature dachshund. A lot of tenants have dogs, I don’t know whether you know but nearly 60% of tenants have dogs. If you are a landlord and considering renting your property out there are ways of being able to allow for pets that gives you protection.

So the first thing is Landlord Protection Insurance that is a good way of making sure that if there is any damage to the property that you are covered. The other thing is that there is a legal requirement for the tenant to pay a pet bond on the property, that pet bond is $260 which is aside from the normal bond of 4 weeks rent which is your normal bond.

If you are a landlord and considering renting your property out have a strong consideration for tenant who do have pets such as Archie and that they would like to rent your property and the likelyhood is that you can have the property rented quicker and income coming in sooner.
