We require a pet deposit of $175 per pet. This deposit is fully refundable unless we have to use it for issues related to your pet (ie pet smell, urine, fleas, etc) There will inevitably be a flea treatment charge unless you provide a receipt from a professional company showing it was treated after you vacated. We also charge a 2% increase in rent for pet rent. This fee is not refundable. You can find a list of the most common aggressive breeds dogs within our application packet, here, under “Statement of Breed” The reason for this is insurance companies will not insure a property for an owner if an aggressive breed is present on the property. If you do not have a pet at the start of your lease term but plan to get a pet at some point during your residency please make sure to notify us ahead of time. If not you will be fined according to your lease terms.
