Flats with pets

Dear Simon, I am struggling to find a flat to purchase which allows pets. Is this normal or have I just been unlucky?

A. I know the country is full of pet lovers but unfortunately this passion is not shared by many of the leasehold titles within blocks of flats. But there is still hope! Not all leases are the same in this context, some simply say that; pets are allowed as long as the do not cause a nuisance. Therefore if you are confident your pet will not cause a nuisance to others within the building then a flat with this Caveat in the lease is within your grasp. Some smaller blocks, i.e. converted houses where there are just a couple of units can also be far more pet friendly as the possibility of such a nuisance is reduced greatly. My advice is persevere, and please remember that as this is so important to your choice of purchase make sure you ask the selling agent before you view, so that you aren’t disappointed.

What our
customers say...

  • I was recommended your company by my niece and i am very glad I took her advice. Your service was first class and we were frequently updated by the staff at your office, especially Holly. I thought the bungalow would be difficult to sell, bearing in mind the condition but you did an excellent job, thank you."A.J Jupe
  • Excellent, friendly and helpful service with brilliant communication. Second time I have used Wrights and staff are willing to go the 'extra mile' giving me peace of mind, especially when dealing with the property sale from afar. All the staff were informed, helpful, reassuring and friendly. A very professional service with a satisfactory outcome that I would recommend to anyone. Many thanks. "
  • We were both very impressed by the service we received. Nothing was too much trouble and we were treated in a friendly and courteous manner at all times. It was mainly due to the high level of service we received that we persevered with our purchase. We are both very grateful for the dedication and helpfulness we encountered at all times."
  • Barry has taken to calling the ladies in the office "The Wright Angels". We cannot fault the service we received. Details were sent promptly, appointments made and kept promptly, questions asked and answered even if they required investigation and a call back. All the ladies were brilliant and Julie was very patient and helpful with Barry as she helped walk us through the whole process."
