LEGISLATIVE ASSEMBLY - Closed ePetition Details

Change the law so property owners cannot refuse pets in a rental property in NSW

Petitioner: Mr Glen Barrett | Member: Greenwich, Alex | No. of Signatories: 406 | Date closed: 02/08/2021
To the Speaker and Members of the Legislative Assembly, It is hard to believe that in 2021 a property owner can refuse a tenant to have a pet reside at a rental property for no good reason. The laws recently changed in Victoria to allow pets in any rental property and the owner had the right to request a pet 'bond' should any damage occur. Pets are part of the family, can be mental health assistance animals, and should be allowed to live anywhere without prejudice. Please change the law to reflect the fabric of a modern family and allow pets in rental properties.
