Landlords could be stopped from banning well-behaved animals in U.K.


The benefits of owning a pet are numerous. According to News in Health, interacting with animals "has been shown to decrease levels of cortisol (a stress-related hormone) and lower blood pressure." While other studies have found benefits including a reduction in loneliness, increased feelings of support, and better moods amongst pet owners. 

But for renters, owning an animal can be impossible. The Sun reports that only 7% of landlords in the United Kingdom advertise their properties as suitable for animals. 

But those numbers could be about to increase as the U.K. government ordered tenancy laws to be rewritten to make it harder for landlords to ban well-behaved animals from their properties.
