No home is complete without a pet. Here at Home Made we understand how complicated home search is, that’s why we wish to help renters with the most demanding of searches: a suitable home for them and their pets.
Pet ownership levels peaked at an unprecedented high of 59% in 2020/21, according to statista. As we all spent more time at home over the past months, small pets, mainly dogs and cats have become our trusted companions and we wouldn’t have it any other way.
But what happens when you need to move home? It’s hard to find the ideal rental property for your household, especially when you have a furry or feathery friend in tow. Landlords have been traditionally cautious towards tenants with pets but the outlook of rental properties is steadily changing to favour tenants with small pets. The best place to look is new-build developments.
Build-to-Rent developments are run by professional landlords who understand modern tenant needs including furry companions. We love these buildings for their communal spaces, be it co-working desks with superfast internet or play areas where you can chill, but most importantly their convenient locations: they are never far away from a beautiful park.
Discover below our favourite pet-friendly Build to Rent developments:
Ten Degrees, Croydon
This part of southeast London gets a lot of hype for its convenient location. Thousands of new homes, shops, restaurants, transport links, and leisure facilities have transformed the area into an exciting, modern neighbourhood popular with city workers and young families.
Ten Degrees is just a hop away from East Croydon train station. The dark green towers stand at 135 m high, with incredible apartments spread over 44 floors. You can soak up the amazing views and enjoy the wonderful lounges and social spaces. Ten Degrees is a pet-friendly development, but it also has a pet spa on site. You won’t need to think twice about how to get rid of the muddy paws after a long walk, nor struggle for the right coat treatment.
The canalside homes have won our hearts over at the amazing Greenford Quay. These new apartments in west London combine location and leisure, making them the perfect choice for urban dwellers.
Greenford Quay is not just an amazing new home but also an incredible community with many regular events held on the BBQ terrace or one of the many lounges. Enjoy peace of mind as the helpful onsite team always has your back, from the impromptu delivery to private cinema bookings.
Of course, the apartments are pet-friendly, and as a bonus, you get a pet grooming area within the amenities. Just indulge in fabulous canalside walks and head straight for a grooming session later.
Equipment Works, E17
Equipment Works is built on the former Associated Equipment Co Factory, which manufactured the iconic route-master buses from 1907 to 1927. Since then, a lot has changed in this East London neighbourhood as newly built developments bring a fresh, youthful vibe with fantastic shopping options, independent eateries, and a farmer’s market nearby Walthamstow.
We love it for its perfect layouts, manicured gardens, and proximity to Walthamstow wetlands. This is a pet-friendly development that can accommodate you and your pet in one of the modern, spacious flats. Its location makes it ideal for leisurely walks on nearby Walthamstow wetlands, and if you like being active, opt for a long walk on one of the many canal trails.
These pet-friendly developments make our top 3 for autumn, and they encompass different areas of London; however, there are plenty more for you to explore on our search page.
