BGH judgment is "no license for pet owners"

The Federal Court has made an important judgment for livestock owners in rental housing: According to judgment (BGH, AZ .: VIII ZR 168/12) landlords are no longer prohibited from holding dogs and cats in rented apartments. The judges saw such clauses in leases as an inappropriate disadvantage to the tenants. Therefore, such chauses are ineffective. But the BGH judgment is therefore "not a license for pet owners", emphasize experts of the ARAG insurance.
