Mice in New Homes

Post by theo1231231 on Mon Oct 10, 2016 2:52 pm

Will mice be a big deal to landlords? because I can imagine that cats and dogs would be a problem, but mice are contained. Has anyone had any trouble moving into a new home because they own mice?

Thanks,

Theo Sparks.

You would need to ask your landlord if he/she allows small pets. If the answer is no, then I wouldn't risk it. You could be forced to re-home your mice or get kicked out.

Edit: I don't think this belongs in General Health, maybe a moderator should move it..?

I have recently moved into a rented house, and was completely honest with the letting agency and landlord about owning small pets (mice and 1 hamster). They were fine with it, and we moved in with no trouble.

It will vary landlord to landlord though, depending on what they're personally comfortable with. Some people really dislike mice. You should express that they are kept in cages that they cannot escape from, and that you clean their cages regularly so they aren't smelly. If they say no, you could ask them what their concerns are and try to reassure him/her.

Good luck!

I am going through this right now, some are an absolute stickler for numbers, so if it says you are allowed 2 pets, they may take that as you can have two mice regardless of whether they are in the same cage or not. I will let you know how this goes as I get closer to actually finding an apartment. I have so far only found two apartments that either specifically say that you can have small animals and the other said no small animals or exotics. Most apartments you are going to have to actually ask management about it, whether they are flexible or not is really going to depend on whether you are dealing with the actual landlord or a third party property manager.

I wish you the best of luck!
