Moving house can be a very stressful time.  Even more so for your pets. 

What could be even more stressful is finding out that the flat you’ve just bought restricts or even forbids pet ownership. 

I’m sure plenty of people think that they can do whatever they like inside their own property.  In reality, some leases (particularly older ones or ones in very exclusive areas) can be quite draconian and heaven help anyone who moves their moggy in regardless, as you won’t get any sympathy from the courts as some flat owners have found to their detriment.  

If you are thinking about buying a flat and want to know what the restrictions are on pet ownership, or anything else, drop my property team a line at  She’ll be able to download a copy of the lease, and tell you if it’s a woof or a neigh.
