Tenants

Pets

The Council’s tenancy agreement allows tenants to keep a pet within their homes, providing they have obtained written permission from Waltham Forest Housing and the animal does not cause a nuisance.

Before requesting permission, you need to ensure you can look after your pet, have the necessary arrangements in place to ensure it does not cause a nuisance such as fencing if you have a dog and a garden and the appropriate facilities to dispose of your animal’s waste.
