More Than A Third Of Renters Have Snuck A Pet Past Their Landlord

A survey of 1,000 people has found that 35% of those who are either renting or who have rented in the past were living with a furry roommate even though they weren’t allowed to have pets as part of their lease agreement. Out of that group, 25% admitted harboring the animal made them feel anxious, worried, or guilty. 

How were the tenants caught?

The majority (48%) say they were busted during a surprise visit by the landlord, while 21% say they were caught when they were out and about or walking their dog. The remaining 21% blame snitches for tipping off the landlord.

Out of the tenants who were caught red-handed, 22% sadly said it led to them being evicted.

If you’re wondering exactly what the renters were the most likely to own- dogs (59%) and cats (56%).
