Renting in Australia – Pets & Your Rental

In Australia you cannot legally have a pet in a rented property without the written consent of the owner, given through the real estate agency. Properties that will allow pets will usually advertise them as such, with words like “Pet Friendly” or “Outside dogs considered”. A property that is advertised as “No Pets” will not usually negotiate on the subject so if you have a pet you should probably not waste your time and just look elsewhere.
