UK pet owners have to pay an average £81 more per month to rent a property than the average renter, according to a new survey from Admiral.
The analysis, which was carried out in October 2021 based on over 161,000 renters (singles and couples) and more than 199,000 advertised rentals, found that the average pet-friendly property in the UK had a rental price of £630, compared to a price of £549 for non pet-friendly properties in the same location.
England, where renters have to pay £106 more to rent with their pets, has the most significant difference, while the gap was narrowest in Wales at £27.
York was found to be the friendliest city in the UK for pet owners, with 15.2 rooms per 100 available open to renters with pets.
In contrast, only 2.8 rooms per 100 in Wakefield were open to pet owners, making it the least pet-friendly city in the UK.
