    Keeping a dog in shared ownership propertyb 10th Jan 18 at 11:59 PM
    Hello, I currently am looking for a shared ownership property as cheaper than rent and I canít afford to buy 100% of a property. I have had my lovely little chihuahua for four years and Iíve read some worrying posts to say you cannot have them in flats. I wouldnít want to give him up as he is very attached to me as to I to him.

    I am viewing a property on 5th floor tomorrow, what are everyoneís thoughts? I do own 25%, and a garden means nothing if you regulary walk your pet. If I donít mention it what will happen if I get found out? I canít just give up my dog.

    If the scheme rules say no then you cannot.

    Any of your neighbours can complain

    On a purely practical level, it is possible to manage a dog in a flat without a garden. Done it myself. If you're ill you force yourself out, or ask a friend to help.
    From a lease perspective, it depends on the terms of the property that you are buying. But even with a small dog, at some point someone will notice and may object/report to the freeholder. Then you will have to deal with any repercussions.
    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.

    Often new build blocks have no pets written into the s106 I have managed blocks of flats before where we had mixed tenure 3 blocks 3 types 1 each per block.

    Nightmare to enforce but the neighbours will most certainly complain. Especially if they have up pest to move there.
