I can't believe what I just read!

A man said he was asked to pay rent for his 2 cats - 75 euro a month!!! And then some pet owners said they are paying 100 euro per month extra rent just for one cat. What???? The greed and shameessness of some people! As a pet owner myself with my pets being my only family, I undersand that people agree to this robbery as the alternative is giving up your pets. I understand that landlords could be afraid of the damage pets may do to the house (although people, and especially children, probably do much greater damage), but the logical thing to do would be an extra deposit for the tenants with pets, and this deposit can be given back, if no damage is done. Why Ireland is so unfriendly to pets?

How awful, do you think the law needs to be adjusted to prevent landlords from discriminating against pets or profiting from tenants with pets? Reply

A landlord would be entitled to say no pets, or no smoking, on the grounds of potential smells and cleaning and carpet damage. But most pets cause less damage than most people.
If pets are allowed - as I believe they should be - there should be no extra charge. I also dispute that an extra deposit should be charged as in my experience landlords never return the deposit. They just want to use it for hired painters, although that should be part of their own ongoing costs from the rent agreement.

That's awful going on. People paying way to much already for rent and now asking money for your Furry friends! Not Good but not surprised the way this world is going. Reply

It’s crazy to say a higher rent for pets, it should be a pet friendly tenancy or no pets allowed, at the landlords discretion, I don’t know why anyone would say no pets allowed, pet owners are usually dedicated to their pets. I agree with what you say that deposits are taken to protect against damage to the property, deposits are high enough and shouldn’t be increased when a new pet arrives just like it’s not increased when a new baby arrives.
