Pet Policy Q & A

Q: Are pets allowed at your rental properties?

A: Yes, pets are allowed at most of our rental properties. Unless stated otherwise – a $500 per pet – pet deposit is charged for each dog and/or cat.

Q: How many pets are allowed? Are there any breed restrictions?

A: Owner/manager reserve right to limit number, sizes & breeds of pets. Usually two pets maximum per unit.

We are animals lovers ourselves, but we still have some restrictions. We may refuse to rent to applicants with certain pets – including but not limited to Pit Bulls, Rottweilers, Dobermans, wolf & fox hybrids, German Shepards and other large dogs and wild animals. We take every situations on a case by case basis.

Q: What other requirements are there to have a pet?

A: Tenants with one or more dogs are responsible for maintaining liability insurance with minimum coverage of $300,000 and shall name owner & manager as additionally insured. This applies to dogs residing on the property either permanently or on a temporary basis. Tenant is responsible for payment of this insurance coverage prior to pet occupancy.

If a tenant decides to exchange or replace a pet covered under a current rental agreement, the tenant must provide the office with breed and pet information and such replacement must be approved by the manager PRIOR to any new pet being brought on the property.

Q: I have a Service/Support animal, what steps do I need to take?

A: Service Animals are not considered pets. However, you must provide a copy of a “prescription” from your health care professional or other provider as allowed by law. The “dog insurance” policy still applies – whether a pet or a service animal, liability insurance must be provided as per our rental agreement.

Note: The rental agreement will state “No Pets without prior written consent of the owner/agent”. If any pets are found on the property without prior consent – they may at owner’s discretion be permanently removed from the property. Your visitors and guests should be informed of this pet policy to avoid potential loss of the pet and or action taken against the tenant for violation of your rental agreement. Temporary or visiting pets are NOT allowed on the property unless approved in advance by the owner/agent and all pet policies are followed.
