Take NOTE. The standard 'no pets' clause when renting a home is NOT in legislation. It's made up by the real estate institute. The law is on the side of renters with pets, which happen to be about 60% of us - the majority. Ask for a standard tenancy agreement in the regulation, not the made up one by the real estate institute.
