Ban landlords from refusing tenants because they have a pet

Petition Details

A lot of dogs and cats get abandoned by their owners each year. Sometimes a pet owner may have to choose between housing and their pet, if a landlord won't allow pets. We believe it’s unfair for landlords to discriminate against people with pets, and that this should be banned.

Additional Information

Up to a third of pet owners living in rented accommodation have to hide their pet from their landlord, according to a survey on 1,000 renters carried out by management company Quintain Living. This should not be necessary.
