Labours plans for pets in rented homes

Personally I support the tenants right to keep pets and where a flats lease states that pets can be kept my tenants have them.
However in the rest of my properties, the lease states that no animals are allowed.
How do you not deny a tenants pet if is their right by law but stick to the rules of your apartment’s lease?

This is totally unfair towards the owners of properties. It is not the government's right to decide on this matter, and owners should be able to decide about whom and what (i.e. the animals) they want to live in their properties.

Ridiculous state intervention. Just another scheme to capture votes like the student loan lie

This is ridiculous. I have worked in social housing for 39 years and some pets are fine I have seen and smelt the mess some houses are left in where dogs are kept and have a large photographic file as proof. It’s not just dogs. A few times I have seen Rabbits left to roam free in a property with no carpets and they. Were left the wee. And poo anywhere. This resulted in replacing 2 complete wooden floors as no amount of cleaning could remove the smell. Try getting the cost of that from a tenant. Although at the end of the day it’s the tenants responsibility to look after the pets and keep the house clean many don’t.
