Allowing pets can help to diversify the tenant population and bring in a wider range of potential renters, including families and pet owners. Landlords may find that pet owners tend to be responsible and conscientious, as they understand the importance of keeping their pets and living spaces well-maintained.

Finding a Pet Friendly Flat in London



Renting a Vertus apartment can ensure that you find the perfect spot for your four-legged friends. 8 Water Street is the first pet-friendly address in Canary Wharf, offering plenty of blue and green spaces, private landscaped gardens, and an expansive roof terrace that serves as Vertus’ largest outdoor space.

Here are our suggestions for finding a perfect pet-friendly apartment that meets your needs:


Assess how much space you need.

How many bedrooms will you need to comfortably house yourself and your pets? Will a one-bedroom apartment work, or will you need a spare room to allow for pet beds, accessories and more.Perhaps two or three bedrooms?

Investigate access to outdoor space.

Many pets – and dogs in particular – need regular access to outdoor spaces to run, play, and enjoy optimal health. Our 8 Water Street apartments offer easy access to an abundance of parks, waterside spaces and a spacious terrace to give your pets room to roam and explore freely.

Find a flat with access to pet-friendly local amenities.

Our Canary Wharf apartments are situated within close proximity to pet groomers, pet stores, pet-friendly restaurants, and veterinary offices for your convenience.


Preparing Your Flat for a Pet

Once you’ve found the ideal pet friendly flat in London to rent, you’ll need to prepare your new living space to ensure that your pet settles in well.

We recommend buying must-have products like pet beds, blankets, feeding bowls and water dispensers, stimulating toys, and a leash and harness to ensure that you’re prepared. Some parts of your apartment, such as unguarded open windows or balconies, may require securing and safety proofing to keep your dogs and cats safe. If you have birds, you may need to fix mesh coverings onto open windows to prevent them from flying away.

All pets should be reported to your landlord before occupancy to ensure that they’re included in your lease agreement. If you have a rental insurance policy, or plan to take one out, we recommend that you notify your carrier of your pets so that they can provide adequate coverage for pet-related damages.
