Pet-friendly rental properties are hard to find, and yet according to a 2011 New Zealand Companion Animal Council (NZCAC) survey, 68% of households own at least one pet. With the companion animal population, over 5 million, outranking the human population 4.8 million (2018 Census), it is acceptable to assume that there are large numbers of people actively looking for rental homes where their pets can come too. Renting a home to a stranger is entrusting someone with a valuable asset so allowing a pet or two makes this a riskier option for the landlord. However, that does not mean a tenant with a pet will not be a good tenant. Landlords could potentially be missing out on high return rental opportunities as pet owners are often willing to pay more to keep their pets with them. Tenants with pets tend to stay longer and take better care of the property according to an overseas survey. Charging a higher rental and including a pet bond are ways to help protect the property and the rights of the landlord. Landlords have the right to ask for a pet bond to cover any future damage caused by the animals or other related costs if tenants, who have left the property, abandon their animals. However, according to the New Zealand Government website, there is a limit to the amount of overall bond that can be charged. A tenant cannot be charged more than the equivalent of four weeks rental in bond. If a pet bond is required, it should be included in this and cannot be in addition to the four weeks rent bond already charged. It is also essential for the landlord to include the names, breed and number of pets allowed to live on the property in the rental agreement, so there are no future misunderstandings. Charging a higher rental and including a pet bond are ways to help protect the property and the rights of the landlord. Ask for a pet portfolio A pet portfolio helps reassure the landlord that the tenant is a responsible owner. It should include information about the pet plus details about its care and daily habits. Things to include: • Photo of the pet. • Description, breed, age and sex. • Current vaccination certificates. • Desexing, microchipping and registration information. • Housing information, i.e. how the animal will be housed (outdoors – in kennel and run; indoors – housetrained, bedding, etc.). • Daily habits – how the pet spends its day, exercise regime, etc. • Training sessions attended, i.e. dog obedience school. • References relating to your pet from a previous landlord or vet.
