The keeping of pets

If you want to keep a dog, cat, etc., in your rental apartment, you must first obtain your landlord's permission.

The answer in detail

Explanations on the subject of keeping pets in a rental apartment

Essentially, your rental agreement will tell you if you can keep pets in your rental apartment. Under current law, landlords can include a provision in the rental agreement banning tenants from keeping all animals or only certain animals such as dogs and cats in the rental property (however, small animals such as ornamental fish, cage birds, turtles and hamsters cannot be banned). If the tenant ignores an explicit ban, he must accept that this gives his landlord the extraordinary right to terminate the tenancy due to violation of the rental agreement. For the most part, rental agreements do not ban the keeping of pets, instead making this dependent on the express agreement of the landlord. Our sample request to your landlord will help you.
