Owning a pet is a big responsibility, but renting with a pet is an even bigger one! If you currently rent and think you might want to adopt a furry friend sometime soon then here are 3 items you should fully understand about apartment living with pets before you commit.
Pet Policy: Moving your pet into your current apartment without informing your landlord can put you in breach of your lease and get you terminated – leaving all deposits behind. Make sure you lease a pet-friendly apartment and the right way. Apartment communities have to manage their pet population and therefore will outline any limitation to the size, bread or weight of a pet in their policy.
Pet Deposit: When you sign your pet agreement you will probably be asked to pay a pet deposit. Apartment living with a pet means you are subject to a pet deposit, higher security deposit or even renter’s insurance.
Pet Parenting: You are responsible for the behavior and actions of your pets. This means you will be required to keep your pet on a leash when required, stay up-to-date on vaccinations, and also clean up after them.
