NDM8038 Debate on a Member's Legislative Proposal – A ban on ‘no pet’ clauses in rented accommodation
NDM8038 Luke Fletcher (South Wales West)
To propose that the Senedd:
1. Notes a proposal for a Bill to ban ‘no pet’ clauses in rented accommodation.
2. Notes that the purpose of this Bill would be to:
a) introduce a standard tenancy agreement similar to the UK Government’s model tenancy agreement announced in January 2021;
b) propose a series of measures which would ensure that responsible pet owners are not treated unfairly as a consequence of the type of accommodation they live in;
c) allow consent for pets as the legal default in social housing and the private rented sector, unless there is a justifiable reason not to do so;
d) extend the allowing of pets in homeless shelters and accommodation.
