My wife and I want to rent a flat in Valencia and we have pets. The estate agents tell us that landlords are not prepared to rent to tenets with pets. We are prepared to make a substantial deposit and I understand that there is insurance available for such matters. Has anyone had similar experiences? Any advice would be appreciated.:)

Firstly, it depends what pets and how many - generally I would advise against having pets in a flat (but that's just me!).

The agent is wrong, there are many landlords that accept pets - it really shouldn't be a problem unless they are large animals or there are too many of them.

Do NOT pay a substantial deposit - you may never get it back. The statuary figures are one month's deposit if the property is unfurnished and two month's if it is furnished - do not pay any more. Agents/landlords will always try and get you to pay more and that's your decision. Just remember that you not see the money again!

In all our time in Spain we have only encountered one property where pets are not allowed. It's where my parents live and of the 9 houses, 6 of them have pets...
