I decided to write a new thread instead of high jacking the other one I wrote on....
We signed the lease on a rental for 12 months in July. The house was advertised as pets permitted, we don't have any pets but wanted to get a dog when we had settled in. In all honesty we never mentioned it to the letting agent.
Now we are ready to have a new family member and want to get a dog. After several unanswered emailed requests to the agent we pushed for an answer and the response was " the landlord wants to think about it because of the carpets" (Carpets are only in the bedrooms)
Two weeks later and two more emails pushing for an answer the landlord said " yes, if the dog stays STRICTLY outside"
We won't be able to sit inside with the dog looking through the window at us. The house even has a dog flap. Hubby and son think we should just get one and let it in but I'm a bit worried about doing that.
What would you do?
