FAQs

What pets am I allowed?

Our flats are pet friendly however we do have a few restrictions on what type, sizes and breeds can stay with us. As a general guide, small pets are ok, but medium and large ones may not be. Your rent will be slightly higher with each pet, this is to cover cleaning and general wear and tear, so if you’d like to have two pets in your apartment, this will be a higher rent than just a single pet.
