Have a Furry Friend? Below is a breakdown of our fees and policies!
Each property and or home will say on the advertisement if the home is Animal Friendly or not.
2. The animal must be licensed yearly or as required by city ordinance and Resident must show proof of current rabies and distemper booster inoculations.
3. Vicious and/or intimidating animals will not be allowed. If Landlord believes that Resident’s animal will pose a threat to the health or safety of others or will cause substantial damage to Landlord’s property, the animal will have to be immediately removed.
4. The animal shall remain inside the resident’s unit. No animals shall be permitted to be loose in hallways, lobby areas, laundry, yards or other common areas of the facility.
5. When taken outside, the animal must be kept on a leash and controlled by an adult. Animals may not be tethered or left unattended outside at any time.
6. Resident shall not permit the animal to disturb, interfere or diminish the peaceful enjoyment of other residents. Continual reports of excessive animal noise (such as a barking dog or loud bird) will be grounds for the landlord’s withdrawal of permission, after which the tenant will have to remove the animal(s) from the premises immediately.
7. Resident is solely responsible for cleaning up animal waste, if any, outside the unit and on facility grounds. Resident is responsible for properly disposing of animal waste in the garbage dumpsters.
8. Resident shall take adequate precautions and measures necessary to eliminate animal odors within or around the unit and shall always maintain the unit in a sanitary condition.
9. Resident shall not leave the animal unattended for a period of 24 hours or more.
10. Resident shall not alter the unit in any way, shape or form to create an enclosure for the animal.
11. Resident is responsible for all damages caused by the animal, including, but not limited to, the cost of cleaning/replacement of carpets and draperies and/or fumigation of the unit.
12. Resident shall indemnify and hold Landlord harmless from any claims, causes of action, damages, costs or expenses of any nature incurred as a result of Resident’s keeping of the animal in the unit.
13. Landlord has the right to periodically inspect the unit for cleanliness/safety upon reasonable notice (8 to 12 hours).
14. Landlord reserves the right to request that the animal be removed if any of the terms of this agreement have been broken.
15. Do not leave food or water for animal or any other animal outside dwelling
16. Any damage to the leased premises caused by an animal or aquarium leak must be immediately repaired, cleaned and/or replaced at the tenants’ expense (including but not limited to stained carpets, broken window shades or blinds, and scratched and chewed cabinetry).
17. Service animals are not pets but provide assistance to disabled residents. By law, the landlord must allow these animals for tenants who have an apparent and verified need that they require them in order to afford a disabled tenant fair use and enjoyment of the facilities. No animal fee is required for the animal, but tenants are still responsible for cleaning up after the animal and liable to obey city ordinance. Tenants are also responsible for any damage done to the unit, building or grounds, beyond reasonable wear and tear. Service animals must meet local and state laws for vaccination. If animal owners are not compliant, we do have the legal right to remove the service animal from the building.
