Your lease allows you to keep a cat or a small dog as long as it does not cause a nuisance to other residents. Cats can go outside but they should wear collars fitted with a bell. Cat flaps may be flitted to back doors at owners’ expense. If you are walking a dog on the estate, make sure it is always on a lead and remember that it is your responsibility to clean up any mess your dog leaves. Your lease does not allow you to keep birds, reptiles or other animals.
