Met a prosepctive tenant, liked what I saw, gave her an application form to fill in, with "No pets" clearly ticked. Form returned with note "I have a companion cat 7 yrs old (what the heck is a "companion cat??) She is no trouble (of course not!)" etc etc.
My concern is this lady is moving from a house with garden to a first floor flat. How will the cat adapt/ Or will it?
Secondly, the deposit ruling - can I take an additional damage deposit for the cat? My gut instinct is no, so therefore I would increase the proposed rent -
I have fears the cat will go loopy in a flat, and thus start to damage things like skirting boards, door architraves, out of boredom.
Hmm - think I have just convinced myself this is not the route I want to take! But all comments appreciated. Thanks.
