Firstly, you MUST have written permission from your landlord (or easilett) before you can introduce a pet to the property. This includes visiting pets. You'd be in breach of your Tenancy Agreement without written permission.
Each permitted pet will be provided with a Pet License. Only 1 fee is applicable per household regardless of number of pets allowed.
How to apply for a Pet License
To apply for a Pet License so you can introduce a pet to your home, simply complete the form below. (Please see the terms to which you need to agree at bottom of this page). Do NOT introduce a pet until you have your landlord has agreed and we have provided your pet license.
If you don't know the animal yet
You do need to complete this even if you don't yet know the pet. Simply insert 'not yet known' in the name box.
What happens next?
Once we receive the details of the pet you would like to keep we will contact your landlord for written permission. If your landlord approves the request we will request the agreed non refundable Pet Payment from you, and once this is paid we'll send you your Pet License. Please Note: You CANNOT introduce the pet until this process is complete and you have received your license.
Pet License fee
The pet license fee is payable before we produce your license. This cost covers our time to negociate with the landlord for a pet, our administration, generating the license and the cost of a chemical treatment at the property after you leave and have had the carpets professionally cleaned. Please note: by applying for a Pet License you agree to have the carpets in the property 'professionally' cleaned at the end of your tenancy by an easilett approved contractor. You must pay for this and you need to provide the invoice to us so we can prove to the next tenant (and landlord) the carpets were cleaned properly after you vacated. If you don't provide an invoice for this cleaning then you agree to the cost of the carpet cleaning to be deducted from your deposit. This will be included in your original Tenancy Agreement. The fee is usually IRO £120 to £200 (depending upon size of property) and the good news is it's per property (not per pet).
Once you have vacated and have had the carpets professionally cleaned (by an easilett approved contractor) we wil arrange a pet treatment to be carried out before the next occupants take possession.
