Tips by Cheap Removalists Melbourne for renting with pets
As a cat/dog lover and a writer for Cheap Removalists Melbourne, I know how much you love your pet. I have experience about going through tough times when selecting a pet-friendly neighborhood. The landlord said, “everybody loves pets here,” but just after 3 days of moving in; next house neighbor started to argue on our barking dog. The neighbor forced us to get rid of the dog, so we were helpless. Anyway, I am not a kind of person who gets rid of our loving pet for the sake of staying in the house. We found a new house (the next month,) and moved quickly from the pet-hating neighborhood. Well, I must say; Cheap Removalists Melbourne was our biggest strength during that urgent move.
How can you find a pet-friendly location?: Well, it’s not that difficult. The mistake I made the previous time was not knowing the tips on finding a pet-friendly neighborhood. Let’s see what the Cheap Removalists Melbourne has to say about finding that right place.
* Privately Owned Properties are better: As you already know, the apartments have restrictions about the pets. You can’t beg from the apartment manager as he gets paid to enforce the rules (unless he is a crazy pet lover.) Well, the apartment complex may advertise “pets are welcome,” but the neighbors may be the opposite. Also, the complexes have breed and weight restrictions (bad new for your big German Shepherd.) Privately owned houses and apartments are the best places for the pet owners, (especially, with a garden.)
* Ask from friends: How about the friend who’s having 2 dogs and 3 cats? He is the best person to get advice from. If you are lucky, you will find a home in the same area. Most of the house owners don’t mention about the pets when advertising on their houses. That’s because they want you to talk with them about your pets. Cheap Removalists Melbourne says, “some house owners clearly say “no pets.” Don’t beg from such house owners – they mentioned it because they don’t want pets.”
Don’t go with empty hands: Cheap Removalists Melbourne representative gave me this golden tip on the on-site assessment day. If you go with empty hands and say “we have 2 dogs,” then the landlord will get second thoughts on giving you the house. Show them that you are a very responsible pet owner. How can you do it? Well, don’t forget to take the followings when you are meeting the landlord.
1) Vet records: Your dog is free from rabies, properly looked after, and healthy. Well, every pet owner in Australia takes their pets to the vet without fail. Anyway, take the records with you as proofs.
2) A reference letter from the previous landlord: Simply, a letter saying that your pet behaved well in his house. Also, you can get from some of the neighbors too (current.) A letter from a landlord is very powerful evidence.
3) Pictures of the previous garden/yard: Well, most of the landlords think that the pets would do crazy things in the garden, destroying everything around. The pictures will prove the good behavior of your pet to the new landlord.
Final words by Cheap Removalists Melbourne: Be honest, don’t lie about your pet’s behavior. Telling lies and entering the house would make a landlord go crazy. No matter how hard you try, don’t get fed up and dump your pet.
