Default landlord and flatmates vs couple with budgies

Hi,
I opened this topic because I need your help or suggestions. I moved to the UK months ago and my girlfriend is coming here as well in the future with our 3 lovely budgies. The problem is that we would live in a shared house (meaning more people live together in the same house) and our budgies are likely to make noise which might disturb my flatmates. I asked all of them and they said they are fine with the budgies except one guy who said: " we will see it". I asked the landlord who is not certain because she knows that budgies are noisy but she is fine with the idea of having budgies if they don't bother the others. What do you think? I'm really sad...

Well I hate to say it but it would be a shame to relocate the birds to only find that the landlord and roommates will not like them. I would not take the chance and i would perhaps rehome them with a relative or perhaps find new place to live where you know for a fact they will be accepting. Or if you send them to the UK have a back up plan for them in case it does not work out

They said it's okay for now so I would say go ahead with it... You've warned them about the noise and if it comes to it there is options you could take when the time comes... There is many places you could put ads up here in the UK like gumtree.com and preludes.co.uk

Hopefully it won't come to that

What exactly does it say in your rental agreement regarding pets? Also, when I last lived with room mates, we lived on a 'majority vote' for anything to do with the common areas. Seeing as though all your roomies save one have okay'd it, that's the majority. If the birds are in your room, even more so as they aren't taking up group living space.

How exciting that you are going to be reunited with your friends and your girlfriend. My thoughts are , you have done the right thing in asking and warning the other occupants of the arrival of your budgies.
Before they get there perhaps you can use the time to help the house mates became more settled and knowledgeable . Show them some clips of budgies interacting and chattering to each other, if you have some pictures or short clips of your budgies show them these as well.
Once they are there take the situation as it unfolds and move on from there. I am sure the will love these cuties as much as you do .

Thank you for the suggestions. However I still don't know what to do!? We haven't checked what regulations related to traveling are but as far as I know there are no regulations for budgies coming to the Uk.
In the tenancy agreement it says the tenant not to bring into the property any animals that could cause harm to the property or contents, be a source of parasites, disease, bad odour or excessive noise...

I am not sure what kind of birds will live near you, but wouldn't the budgies just kinda blend in with wild birds in the area?

I honestly think your budgies would be better off staying in your home country with a relative or someone who cares about them. It all seems so much stress and moving only to (possibly) find out that your roommates don't like the noise. Then you would be heartbroken and scrambling to find them a home in a foreign country.
Not to mention the costs of transporting them to the UK ( I am sure there are fees and quarantine of some sort)
