Pet & Animal Policies

Welcome! We strive to help ensure mutual accountability and responsibility for the benefit of all our residents and tenants. It’s imperative that ALL our residents and tenants fully understand and acknowledge our pet and animal-related policies. This also includes residents and tenants that do not own a pet or animal. We require EVERYONE to complete a third-party screening and review process. This quick and easy process ensures we have your pet and animal-related policy acknowledgments, pet/animal history and records, and legal attestation of truthfulness and accuracy on file. To start, please select one of the three options below that best describes you:
  • No Pets or Animals

    This is a required application process for anyone that does NOT own a pet or animal. There is no cost ($) to you for completing the application process

  • 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 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 shall be liable for any damage caused or contributed to the Pet to floors, doors, walls, windows, screens, appliances, landscaping, and any other part of the Leased Premises, the building in which the Leased Premises is located (‘Building’), or the property on which the Building is located (‘Landlord’s Property’).

Tenant represents and warrants to Landlord that the Pet has no prior history of biting or attacking people or other pets. 5. If the Pet is left unattended for 24 hours or more, or its health is jeopardized by Tenant’s neglect, mistreatment or inability to care for the Pet, Landlord shall have the right, but not the obligation, to notify the Police and Anti-Cruelty Society. Such circumstances shall be deemed an emergency for the purposes of the Landlord’s right to enter the Leased Premises to remove the Pet therefrom. The Landlord accepts no responsibility for any pet so removed. 6. In the event Tenant fails to comply with this Amendment or the Pet is determined to be a nuisance or a danger to other tenants in the Building, Landlord may, at its option, deliver written notice to the Tenant stating the acts or failures to act that constitute the default.
