Pet clause in LOI/tenancy agreement (urgent)

Postby Ellmeg » Mon, 28 Aug 2017 1:26 pm

Hi all!

Our agent has proposed the following clause for keeping our dog in the flat:

The below mentioned clause will be added to the tenancy agreement
“ It is further agreed between landlord and the tenant, that the landlord grants permission for
the tenant to keep a pet dog in the property for the duration of the tenancy . The tenant
agrees, not to keep or permit to be kept on the property any further pets or animals of any
description without the consent of the landlord
The tenant hereby undertakes and agrees to remedy and pay for any damaged caused to the
property and /or contents of the property which shall have been caused by the pet residing in
the property . For avoidance of doubt, any such damage shall not be deemed to be fair wear
and tear.
The tenant agrees to pay for professional cleaning of the property at the end of the tenancy
including rectifying any damages/ scratches /urination marks to the parquet, flooring and
treating the property for fleas and mites.”


Is this the "standard"? To me the last paragraph is over the top as we will anyway professionally clean the property and we are anyway agreeing to repair any dog damage.

Any thougths please?

The clause is pretty lousy written but it has one important point and I think it is fair to have it. It refocuses the term wear and tear to the context including the dog. Other than that, it is redundant as you are responsible for damages and cleaning anyway.
