Ask an Property Solicitor. Get an Answer ASAP.
Hello, is your tenancy with an individual owner of one of the six flats?
If so your tenancy agreement will tell you what you can and can't do (restrictive covenants). If you have the landlord's permission, preferably in writing to have a dog on the property, no one else can interfere. Where there might be a problem is where the tenants of other flats feel that you are unreasonably interfering with their enjoyment of their property. Then you would be liable to claims of nuisance in tort. So think carefully, although you would be entitled to disregard the property manager's decision as the landlord holds the freehold, you might be opening yourselves up to legal liability if you've got other tenants who disagree with you having a dog and they might use it against you.
Would you mind accepting my initial answer and providing a rating, this ensures I get paid for my time, but I will continue to help you with your subsequent questions on this if you need further assistance.
