Pet & Animal Policy

CONDITIONAL AUTHORIZATION FOR PET: The lease covering the premises provides that no pets are permitted on or about the premises without Management’s prior written consent. Management may reject a pet for any reason Management deems appropriate. Management reserves the right to deny an application for permission to have a pet or pet agreement due to an animal, breed, or animal mixed with a breed having a history of aggressive behavior. Residents are hereby authorized to keep the pet described on the premises of the above noted dwelling/unit until the above-described lease expires. Authorization may be terminated sooner if resident's right of occupancy is lawfully terminated or if the pet rules listed below are violated in any way by the residents or residents’ guest. Bringing a pet onto the premises that is not paid for, approved & registered FOR ANY REASON is a violation of the lease agreement and will result in immediate forfeiture of security deposit. 

THE COMBINED WEIGHT OF ANY TWO (2) PETS MAY NOT EXCEED EIGHTY (80) POUNDS AND NO ONE PET MAY EXCEED SIXTY (60) POUNDS. TENANTS MAY HAVE NO MORE THAN TWO PETS PER UNIT. 

PET FEE: LESSEE HEREBY DEPOSITS TWO HUNDRED FIFTY DOLLARS ($250.00) AS A NON-REFUNDABLE PET FEE FOR THE ABOVE DESCRIBED PET. Tenant has paid this amount as a non-refundable fee to induce owner to grant permission for the pet. Tenant understands that the pet fee will not be refunded, even if the pet is subsequently removed from the premises, or if there is no damage to the premises at the end of the term. The pet fee is to ensure all terms and conditions of the lease and this pet addendum, including, but not limited to, the return of the premises in good and clean condition, free of pet damage and flea and other pest infestation, at the completion of the term. This fee is NON-REFUNDABLE and will not be used to cover any damages to the unit upon move-out.

Upon termination of the lease or removal of the pet from the premises, whichever occurs first, tenant shall remain liable for dormant infestation and latent pet odor (including extermination costs and carpet replacement and floor refinishing if necessary) for 30 days after the pet is removed from the premises and the required extermination and cleaning are complete. Upon move out, the tenant is required to pay for a carpet cleaning company to deodorize the carpet to remove any lingering pet odor.
