Dogs, Cats and other animals
A little bit of a advise please, a tenant in a studio now has a dog. She has informed me that the dog is her Mothers service animal, her Mother has had a stroke and is unwell at the moment but once her Mother recuperates, she will return the dog to her. She also claims the dog helps with her anxiety and depression.
Ive recieved a complaint about the dog barking, it doesnt seem to do it much during the day but according to the complainer, its a nightmare in the evenings and weekends.
There is a clause in the tenancy which clearly states no pets. However, when I have looked into it, permission should be sought and cannot be withheld, unreasonable. I would not have given permission, as the accommodation is just unsuitable.
My Solicitor, doesnt think I'd get an evicition purely because of the extenuating circumstances. I'm reluctant to start proceedings with that advice ringing in my ears. Any thoughts.
Thank you in advance.
