Hi.   So one of my tenants ,  a friend of my husband,  son and his.  Ď I want a dog Ď partner , who signed. A no pet agreement 3yrs ago is consistently asking can she have a dog .
 Iím allergic to dogs, . Iím mean red rash allergic.    I try to explain that I need excess to house, inspection, plumbing , electrical.  New fuse box last week etc etc  and a dog would be a problem .   
With the  new pet ruling about to become law   How do I apply for a cert for pet exception.   There is nothing on line not even on gov.com

Why worry about that, it'll just cause friction, just evict them.

You won't find such an exemption because there is no such thing.I very much doubt that the new ruling will make it impossible to refuse pets. Dog rescues will not rehome most dogs unless there is a garden with 6ft.fence.Only two of my rentals are suitable for dogs, and I use discretion about one of those. No one will force me to allow a dog into the studios with open plan gardens.If your tenants will not take no for an answer,they are being very manipulative.Tell them they need to find somewhere else,and as Hippogriff says serve notice if they refuse to go.Never again take friends as tenants.

Taken from.        https://www.lettingaproperty.com/landlord/blog/
Certificate  of exemption for renting with pets

Exemptions to the pet bill

If the proposed bill goes ahead, tenants will not have an unconditional right to keep a pet.

Tenants canít have a dog or domestic animal unless they hold a responsible animal guardianship certificate and can care for the animal. If living in the rental accommodation puts the animal at risk, or causes danger or nuisance to people nearby, they will not be allowed. can also restrict their tenantís right to keep dogs or domestic animals if they hold a certificate of exemption.

Such certificates may be issued if:

The landlord or another tenant has a religious or medical reason not to come into contact with a dog or domestic animal
The accommodation is unsuitable for the animal
Certificates of exemption may be provided for:

Groups of dwellings within a building or area
Entire buildings
Specific orders, families, species or breeds of animal
Model tenancy agreement changed to allow renting with pets

Alongside the proposed bill, the Ministry of Housing updated their standard tenancy agreement so that landlords cannot issue a Ďblanket baní on pets.

Allowing pets is now the default position on the governmentís recommended model tenancy agreement.

You've missed the point...

Your Tenant wants to keep a pet.
You definitely don't want that.

There is no middle ground - certificates or not - if you do all you can to hinder them it will lead to a fundamental breakdown in your Landlord / Tenant relationship and bad feeling all round. A certificate doesn't save you from this, does it? Best to encourage them to move on to somewhere more welcoming than what you're prepared to offer.

Yes. Iím over complicating it.        I have just let out a property finding new tenants was a nightmare .  I asked all the usual questions  but on taking up refs , suddenly the couple who wanted to down size to save for a deposit  werenít working at all and the couple who had admitted to a ccj. Long ago.   Seems to think One can mean several and 3 months is the dim and distant past.    Hence the not wanting to go thought that all again so soon.       Thanks for help.     W.

That could be a one-off... it happens. Sometimes the same property goes to the right Tenant like a hot cake... sometimes it hangs around and you get all sorts of tyre-kickers and chancers wandering through... I don't think it's a sign of a certain time... it's a combination of various nebulous and airy-fairy things... you might even call it luck. To assume you'll have a nightmare finding new Tenants again is not right... you might, but you can't assume it.
