OK we've lived in our 1 bed flat for 2 years. The flat has a medium shared garden with our neighbour who is friendly. But now my dh wants to move to another flat which is bigger, better & has a bathtub (only got a walk in shower here) with an unshared garden. My issue is this has come completely out of the blue because its his friends old flat we are supposed to be moving to in about 2 WEEKS! We haven’t even met the landlord (but we have spoken to him over the phone) but we know he wants to know EVERYTHING. Our current landlord, we have no contact with whatsoever hardly, he’s a pain to get to carry out any repairs properly or at all but at least he LEAVES US ALONE. My dh is complaining about the landlord being put of by our: 2 dogs 1 cat 7 chickens (including roosters) 2 meat rabbits 11ish quail in the inky. Thing is I know hes right although we can afford to pay upto 5 months rent in advance or pay a larger deposit. Our neighbor can verify the flat is falling apart thanks to the landlord, not us because his flat is the same & he can also thumbs up the animals which he enjoys on his doorstep. I said all we can do is keep everything spotless, get rid of our only crowing roo & pray. The thing is our animals have full garden access currently (i wouldnt be against pens though) and i worked so hard on my coop and everything This flats much nicer yes, but Ive only just got my chickens & rabbits believing us to be staying here & I feel its unfair for my dh to complain now when I discussed it with him 4 months ago. Btw we live in a tiny one bedroom flat in the uk with about 6x4ft for the kitchen. The living rooms about 17ft x 10ft & the bedroom is about 13ft x 15ft. The bathroom barely has room for a toilet, sink & shower in 5x4ft.
