thank you. So do you have a tenancy agreement of your own? From what you say above it seems to me you are saying your girlfriend has the tenancy and you are simply living with her as a guest?
thank you. It would be necessary to establish your status in order to determine what rights you may have. If you are simply occupying as a guest, then if your girlfriend is the tenant, she can ask you to leave at any time. By contrast, if you are a tenant, then you can only be made to leave by way of a court order. If you are not sure what your status is, you can ask the lettings agent to provide you with a copy of the contract if you are a party to it.
In terms of finding another place to live, you are correct that it can be difficult to find a property with a pet as many landlords are reluctant to accept pets. What some people do and I do not suggest this is what you should do is claim they do not have a pet in order to obtain the tenancy for a property and then move in with their pet banking on the fact that it would be difficult for the landlord to do a great deal about it once they have moved in particularly as a clause in the tenancy agreement banning pets out right is considered to be an unfair terms in consumer contracts and potentially unenforceable there are of the landlord can subsequently prove that you misrepresented having a pet in order to obtain the tenancy, they may have a week to medium case for taking back possession early through the courts
