    Can I terminate my tenant's tenancy early for having an unauthorised pet?

    Can I terminate my tenant's tenancy early for having an unauthorised pet? 10th Jul 17 at 11:42 AM
    I am renting a flat to a couple on a 12 month tenancy agreement. When they applied they did not say anything about having a pet and in the tenancy agreement it states that tenants must get permission for any pets from the landlord first. I have been informed by a neighbour that one of the tenants has been seen going in and out of the flat with a dog, and the dog has also been seen in the garden. I asked the tenants about it and they claimed that it didn't belong to them but was a friend's who had been visiting or had left the dog there for a short time. I told them that I did not want a dog in the flat at all even if it was a friend's and that they should stop allowing the friend to bring the dog in, but it has been seen again since by my neighbour who watches and keeps me informed, when the woman tenant is around she often seems to have the dog with her.
    I think that the dog is probably really theirs or has been staying with them and I don't want it there. How can I go about ending their tenancy for breach of contract? Will I have to obtain proof that the dog is there? Does it matter legally whether it belongs to them or not?
    They also pre-paid all 12 months of their rent before moving in and have eight months remaining on the tenancy, will this make it harder for me to get them out?

    Ok, I've read the motorhome one before, but what are the chocolate orange and the bag for life ones all about? Can't see anything obvious in search results.

    Oh dear! Everytime I glance down the list of thread titles, I see this:
    "Can I terminate my tenant's tenancy early for having an uncircumcised pet?"

    I really must book an optician's appointment.

    More like a nosey old t*at who needs to get a life & stop winding you up & exaggerating.

    Although I actually think YOU are winding us up with this inventive story just for attention.
    Good one but you'll never beat the dead dog burried in the garden & dug up story or the caravan in garden thread!!!!

    Why not get some help with the tax situation like an accountant if its not something you can handle bit if you say you were self employed then doing the tax etc should b a cinch.

    Get a new agent that wont shaft you.
    Do some reading on what being a landlord entails.

    And why for the love of god did you rent the flat out, why not live in the property yourself if the contents eg the bed etc was important.

    I am sure you are having a general rethink on what you have done and why but I would have thought an accountant would cost a lot less than this agent has done. Have they take 40% of your rental price for doing very little?

    While it would be nice to not have this happen in our society, unfortunately if you lay down on the road with the words 'mug' printed on your forehead, someone will come along delighted to treat you as such.

    You are obviously intelligent, you value your assets, stop being so careless and lazy about them if you want to keep them. Treat them as they should be treated, with care.

    I do have to ask myself whether someone who appears not to have needed to work, and has an ancestral pile(ish) and a four poster bed in situ (screwed to the floor no less) as part of a larger inheritance would come anywhere near MSE forums in the first place instead of to the family retainers solicitor/accountant. Lovely though you nice folk are - well, some of you anyway.
    But I would very much miss the OP if they flounced back to chez dire-wolf, so please can we not scare them off.
    Much obliged.
    All shall be well, and all shall be well, and all manner of things shall be well.

    Pedant alert - it's could have, not could of.
