Rental homes brand Tipi has revealed its latest boost to London renters’ lives – pet-friendly homes in the capital’s most exciting new neighbourhood, Wembley Park. However, they are introducing a unique way of vetting and welcoming the new four-legged residents.
When the new Landsby buildings open their doors to renters from September, furry friends will be welcomed with everything from goody bags to special events.
Rajesh Shah, Managing Director, Tipi explains
“We wanted to ensure that our latest 295 homes for rent at Landsby meet the needs of a broad range of Londoners, so we listened to existing residents and shaped Landsby’s services accordingly. One issue that we wanted to address was that of pet ownership in rented accommodation. There’s no reason why house-trained, well behaved pets shouldn’t be permitted to live in rented homes, so we’ve put appropriate structures in place to allow that to happen here at Wembley Park.”
Tipi’s pet-friendly scheme will see prospective pets interviewed by the Tipi Team, which includes one four-legged member in the form of a Cavapoo called Frankie. Frankie will vet ‘paw-spective’ dogs based on how they interact and socialise. Those that can follow basic instructions and are well mannered will make the grade, as will house cats.

Permitted pets will be issued with unique, numbered Tipi collar tags, to help identify them to the Tipi concierge as residents in case they should they go astray. Pets will be photographed with their tags and have their own ‘pass-pawt’ style profile whilst the Residents Team will mark special dates, such as their birthdays and World Animal Day on 4 October.
Staff will also be issuing Tipi’s resident pets with their very own goody bags, to welcome them to the building. Contents will vary based on seasonal needs, from specialist grooming products to branded dog coats.

Pets and their owners will have plenty of opportunities to socialise at Tipi, with a range of new facilities and events currently being planned for 2019. A purpose-built dog run, complete with water supply for washing and seating for pet owners is currently under consideration.
The Tipi team is also exploring the potential for pet grooming days, a Halloween ‘best dressed pet’ competition, collar-making sessions in collaboration with local artists, dog agility events and puppy training classes. The Tipi team also plan to have some fun with their four-legged residents. Ideas currently under consideration include a pet of the week initiative and framed pottery paw prints for Landsby’s first cat and dog.
Rajesh Shah, Managing Director, Tipi says:
“Animal welfare will be a key consideration for Tipi’s pets. As part of the vetting process, we will liaise with the owners to ensure that pets are healthy and check that their vaccination records are completely up to date. We can also introduce them to a local vet if they are new to the area or to pet ownership.”
As with all other aspects of Tipi, the new Pets scheme will aim to blend seamlessly with the local community at Wembley Park. From an animal perspective, there is plenty on offer, and staff will support residents to connect with initiatives such as Brent BARK, which works to promote responsible dog ownership within the borough and offers services such as free microchipping (as required by law).
