Should You Allow Pets Into Your Gold Coast Rental Properties?

By Larry Malan

There are a number of things to consider if you want to become the owner of Gold Coast rental properties. After all, you'll be responsible for the real estate in the long term – long after your tenants leave. 

However, something that is a point of contention among many landlords is the decision about whether or not to allow pets into your investment properties. 

There are a number of benefits for opting to allow pet owners to rent your residential property in the Gold Coast. 


Often, pet owners can be trusted to be upfront with their rental payments, making them in full and on time. This is because looking after another living creature – whether it be a cat, dog or bird – is a large responsibility and requires a degree of respectability. 

Extended tenancy 

It's safe to assume that, as a landlord allowing pets, you can count yourself within the minority. Therefore, if you manage to secure a great, trustworthy tenant with a pet, chances are they will want to stay in your property for an extended period of time. 

This is because finding rental properties that accommodate for pets is difficult, making your vacant home  worth holding onto.
