BE WEST Case study | First Time Buyer finds a home for Her and Her Dog | Waterside Heights

Hayley was living at home and started looking for properties in October 2020. When Hayley discussed the pandemic impact, she said that looking for a new home wasn't difficult, but affordability was a challenge because of certain restrictions. We asked Hayley if her dog impacted her decision. We explained that at BEWEST we have pet-friendly developments and a well thought out pet policy. "What really sold it for me is the fact that it’s ground floor and has a garden which is nice for my dog." We value our pets and have a pet policy which applies to all leaseholders, tenants and licensees.
