We recognise that keeping a pet can bring enormous satisfaction and joy to the lives of our customers. If you want to keep a pet you need to apply for permission - this helps us make sure that your home is suitable for a pet and that we can be sure it will be properly looked after.
We usually allow customers to keep pets if they live in a house, however if you live in a flat then keeping a pet may not be possible.
If you live in a flat where there is a shared entrance for example we are unlikely to grant permission for animals such as cats and dogs. If you are unsure, speak to your Community Manager.
Unfortunately we have a no pets policy at Flagship Foyers.
We are unlikely to grant permission for you to have a pet if you already have either:
In the majority of cases and if your home is suitable we will give you permission to own a pet, however there are certain types of pet that are simply not permitted. These include:
We do not expect you to ask permission to keep a goldfish or a small caged animals like a guinea pig, hamster or small bird. If you are in any doubt please speak to your Community Manager.
Where permission to keep a pet is given, it is essential that you agree to take full responsibility for your pet and that it does not cause a nuisance to others.
Constant barking, fouling in the communal areas or in neighbours' gardens can all be considered a form of anti social behaviour. Even if your pet fouls in your garden and not your neighbours', you must make sure that you clear the mess up immediately to prevent attracting pests or causing a hazard. Remember - every pet must be kept under control at all times.
If we start to receive complaints about your pet we will conduct an investigation following our anti social behaviour policy. In some circumstances we will ask for you to find another home for your pet and prevent you from owning a pet in the future.
