Animal nuisance

In general, people are allowed to keep animals, as long as they do not cause a nuisance or a health hazard to other people and premises around them.

Legislation exists to prevent nuisance and health hazards from being caused by keeping animals.

If you live in a housing association property, you are also bound by a contract of tenancy (part of which is a tenancy agreement), which prevents you from causing nuisance or health hazards by keeping animals.

Such things as noise, smells or waste caused by keeping animals could be a problem and if reported, will be investigated. Further information on Cats, Owls and Bats is available in this section. We also have a Dog Issues section.
