Pet-friendly rentals FAQs

Can you have a pet when renting in Australia?

Yes. If your landlord agrees, you can have a pet in your rental property.

Is it illegal for landlords to say no pets?

No. Landlords can say no to pets. This may soon, however, become more difficult. Several states across the country are introducing reforms to the tenancy act that will limit the rights of landlords to prohibit their tenants from owning pets.

Here is a brief overview of the current rules across Australia:

  • Pet-friendly rentals NSW. No laws forbid tenants from owning pets, but the Fair Trading NSW residential tenancy agreement includes a term that requires the landlord’s consent. This term can also restrict the type of animals. Apartments and townhouses for rent are subject to their own bylaws.
  • Pet-friendly rentals QLD. The QLD government is introducing significant reforms to the tenancy act. Currently, however, rental providers must give their permission and can refuse pet-owners.
  • Pet-friendly rentals VIC. All renters in VIC will soon have the right to house a pet in their rental homes. Pet ownership will still require permission from the landlord, but such requests will be more difficult to refuse.
  • Pet-friendly rentals SA. If tenants wish to keep pets, they are required to seek permission from their landlord. Many landlords will ask for a signed agreement that enforces pet-specific rules and expectations.
  • Pet-friendly rentals WA. Permission must be given by the rental provider if pets are to be kept.
  • Pet-friendly rentals ACT. In the ACT, new laws are set to be introduced to limit the rights of rental providers to refuse pets. If the landlord cannot provide ‘reasonable grounds,’ renters can keep pets in their home.
  • Pet-friendly rentals NT. Whether renters can keep pets or not is completely up to the landlord. Renters can, however, apply to NTCAT to remove a pet ban if they believe it’s unreasonable.
  • Pet-friendly rentals TAS. Renters in TAS can have a pet if the property owner has agreed and the renter is prepared to fix any damage caused by the pet during their tenancy.

Can a landlord kick you out for having a dog?

If your landlord has explicitly prohibited you from owning a dog under your tenancy agreement, keeping a dog in your home may be considered a breach of your lease. This could be grounds for your landlord to end your tenancy.

Do fish count as pets when renting?

Most landlords will allow fish in their rental properties, even if they prohibit larger pets like cats and dogs. It’s still a good idea to seek permission from your rental provider if you plan on setting up an aquarium in your home.

Can you have pets if the landlord says no?

No. If you sign a lease that explicitly forbids you from owning a pet, you cannot go against this and bring an animal into your home. If you do, you are breaching your tenancy agreement.

How do I get my landlord to allow pets?

Some property owners don’t list their properties for rent as ‘pet-friendly.’ But, when approached by a reasonable pet-owner with a fantastic rental record, they may agree to pet ownership.

Should I allow pets in my rental property?

Allowing pets in your rental property has several advantages. Your property will attract a larger group of potential renters. And, if/when reforms to tenancy laws are introduced in your state that make it more difficult for landlords to refuse pet-owners, you will already have experience with pet ownership.
