Where can you find pet friendly flats in London? We list the top 20 pet friendly rental options in London, according to reviews from people already living in them!
There are private landlords who are fine with you having dogs, cats or more exotic pets in your property. However, pet friendly properties can be hard to find and are increasingly popular among Londoners, especially following nearly two years of lockdowns!
How do I find pet friendly rentals?
One of the easiest ways to find a pet-friendly flat is to look at purpose-built developments (known as ‘Build to Rent‘). These are some of the best options for pet owners looking for a new London rental apartment. Build to Rent developments often have entire floors dedicated to animal owners, as well as extra facilities for helping you to look after your pet.
Our resident reviews of these apartments provide insights into London’s very best pet-friendly rental homes. These homes also usually come beautifully furnished and all our top 20 will have excellent management teams. These teams even put on social events for residents, including pet-themed events like doggy yoga!
Why is it so hard to rent with pets?
Many landlords think pets are too great a risk. Unruly pets can damage properties. In addition, most apartments in a city like London will have limited facilities for pets – unless they are specifically designed to house them.
Another great thing about renting with a Build to Rent landlord is that you’ll get to meet other pet owners. The buildings will have been designed with dogs and cats in mind. You know you won’t be disturbing other residents! Our top 20 pet friendly rental developments are an excellent place to start looking for your new rental property.
