Pet & Animal Policies

A welcoming and safe environment is paramount to all of our residents. To help ensure ALL of our residents understand our pet and animal-related policies we require EVERYONE to complete a third-party screening and review process. This process ensures we have formalized pet and animal-related policy acknowledgments and more accurate records to create greater mutual accountability. Please find the category below that best describes you to get started

  • No Pets or Animals

    A pet screening application is still required if you do not have a pet or assistance/support animal. By selecting the "No Pets or Animals" option, you are certifying that you do not have a pet or assistance/support animal. Failure to submit an application for your pet or assistance/support animal shall constitute a breach of your lease and may result in the termination of your lease.

  • Household Pets

    This is a required application process for anyone that owns a household pet. This includes dogs and cats and might include pets that live in cages such as birds, hamsters, rabbits, snakes or fish tanks (because of the contained water) so please ask your housing provider for clarification regarding these types of pets

  • Assistance Animals

    This is a required review process for anyone with a non-obvious disability and disability-related need for an assistance animal. This process provides a HIPAA compliant and secure way of submitting a reasonable accommodation request for an assistance animal (service animals, emotional support animals, companion animals, etc.) that will be reviewed by a third-party legal review team to ensure the accommodation request meets HUD’s Fair Housing Act guidelines. There is no cost ($0) to you to submit an accommodation request. Please make sure you are aware of your State’s laws, if any, for submitting a fraudulent accommodation request

* NOTICE TO ALL RESIDENTS & APPLICANTS: Everyone must complete the screening process. This is not only for pet and animal owners but also for residents and applicants that DO NOT own a pet or animal.

Tenant and/or Tenant’s guests shall not keep pets on the Premises without the prior written consent of Manager. Should this consent be granted, Tenant acknowledges that Manager’s consent is conditional for so long as there are no bona fide complaints involving Tenant’s pet(s) or Tenant’s guest’s pet(s). Tenant is responsible to confirm their compliance with all condominium or HOA rules (if any) concerning pet(s) prior to and during occupancy of unit. Pet deposit may be used to pay for non-pet damages exceeding the amount of the security deposit. Tenant assumes all liability and responsibility for any and all damages caused by said pet(s) including, but not limited to having carpets inspected by a professional carpet cleaning and restoration company to assess the extent of any damage from odor and/or urine stains. Based on the recommendation of treatment, Tenant will be responsible for deodorizing, cleaning, replacing padding and/or carpeting, sealing floors and/or walls. This includes, but is not limited to, scratched and/or chewed doors, woodwork, floors, and carpet. There will be no depreciation of carpeting/padding or flooring should replacement be necessary due to pet damage. Tenant is responsible for the cost of having the Premises de-fleed and de-ticked by a professional exterminator at the termination of tenancy and shall provide paid receipts evidencing such professional services. Depending upon the nature and scope of the damage, the final cost of damages may not be available within 30 days of vacating. Manager will work to resolve the problems as quickly and cost effectively as possible. Once completed, Tenant will be provided a final closing statement of charges to be applied against the Security Deposit or to be reimbursed by Tenant, as Additional Rent. Manager is under no obligation to use Tenant’s preferred contractors to perform any of the above referenced work.
