Dog amongst bluebells

Gentle feline purrs, cute puppy paws and cheeky little chinchillas. Pets are part of the family and many people relocating to the UK will either bring a four‐legged friend with them or intend to purchase a pet once they have settled in.

The sticking point is often landlords. To them, that loveable bundle of fluff actually represents the unshift‐able smell of wet dog, a plethora of scratches in the paintwork, unsavoury stains on the carpet and a case of spray‐resistant super fleas. Boiling it down ‐ a pet costs a landlord in extra maintenance, repairs and end‐of‐tenancy cleaning.

Clifton suspension bridge, Bristol

Bristol is the largest and most popular city in the South West of England.

It holds a Royal charter and unusually has county as well as city status. It is emerging as a centre of retail excellence and trade, as well as having a thriving tourism industry and the red brick University of Bristol.

When you add all these factors together, you result in a unique lettings market that is under mounting pressure from rising tenant demand.  Letting agents are finding that rents agreed on new rentals are increasing, especially for modern properties that are easy to maintain and turn‐key ready. Local lettings agent Atif Javid at Intire Lettings is quick to highlight figures from the Office for National Statistics, showing that only 176 news rentals in Bristol are coming on every month while the population in the city is rising by almost 400 every four weeks ‐ highlighting the supply and demand imbalance.
