Your tenancy agreement is an agreement that will not do anything that is likely to annoy or disturb people living near your home. Examples of nuisance include dogs barking and fouling. Your tenancy agreement also says:
“Any pets and animals that you keep in your home must not cause damage to your home and/or a nuisance to your neighbours and/or their lawful visitors”.
Please do not:
- leave your dog unattended in your garden or property for long periods of time.
- leave your dog to bark continuously, causing disturbance to other residents.
- allow your dog to roam and foul in communal areas; dogs must be on a lead at all times in communal areas, internal and external.
If you, or your visitors, own a pet, you are responsible for ensuring that you clear up immediately any mess left by these pets.
Dog mess can be very harmful to young children playing in the area who may touch it and cause illness and even blindness.
You can safely get rid of your dog’s mess using a ‘poop scoop’ (plastic shovel) and a bag. If there isn’t a dog mess bin nearby, wait till you get back home to put it in the bin or rubbish chute.
The same applies to other animals; please ensure the mess is bagged and put in the bin or down the bin chute.
Please do not throw cat litter down the chute without putting it in a bag first.
