In the case of social landlords, it would be set out in the tenancy agreement whether pets are allowed and this is at the discretion of the landlord. Similarly, in the private rented sector, it is a matter for landlords to agree with their tenants as to whether pets are permitted. The government recognises that not all properties may be suitable for tenants with pets but encourages landlords to offer flexibility where possible.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>The Government responded to the Grenfell Tower fire by setting up an independent panel of experts, who established that the immediate priority was to identify the scale of use of Aluminium Composite Material (ACM) type cladding on buildings over 18 metres. Following further advice from the Independent Expert Advisory Panel, the Government commissioned the Building Research Establishment to test different wall cladding systems using three common types of ACM panelling with two commonly used types of insulation. The results will provide further evidence of how some commonly used wall systems using ACM perform in a fire. This evidence will be used to produce further advice to inform building owners’ decisions on whether they need to take any additional action to make their buildings safe.</p> more like this
