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:
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.
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.
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.
A. PET AUTHORIZATION:
Tenant may not keep any pet or assistance animal on the Property unless specifically authorized by Landlord in writing. A “Pet” includes any animal, whether mammal, reptile, bird, fish, rodent, or insect.
B. PET FEES & DEPOSITS:
Note: There is no additional fee, deposit, or pet rent required for Assistance Animal(s) as defined by the Federal Fair Housing Act.
For each approved pet, you will be charged a one-time pet deposit and either a monthly pet fee or a one-time pet fee due upon move-in. Fees will vary based on your pets screening scores. See below for more details:

» PetScreening FIDO Scores: the pet rating system ranges between five (5 paws) to zero (0 paw). The higher the score rating, the lower the risk and associated fees / deposits.
» Pet Deposit (Fully-Refundable): this fully-refundable one-time deposit per approved pet varies based on their FIDO Score; the pet deposit is an increase in the security deposit and is made part of the security deposit for all purposes per the lease. This increase in the security deposit cannot be returned until move-out when the lease ends, even if the pet departs the property. Any refund of the security deposit, including the pet deposit increase, is governed by the terms of the lease.
» Monthly Pet Fee (Non-Refundable): this non-refundable monthly fee per approved pet varies based on their FIDO Score; and will continue for the duration of the tenancy even if the pet departs the property.
» One-Time Pet Fee (Non-Refundable): this non-refundable one-time fee per approved pet varies based on their FIDO Score; the pet fee is not an increase in the security deposit.
C. PET RULES:
Tenant must remove or confine any pet at any time that the pet is likely to limit or prohibit Landlord or other persons access to Property in its entirety as permitted by the lease.
E. DISCLOSURE CONCERNING PETS:
Any pet that has been approved in writing must not have ever bitten or injured another person or have the propensity or predisposition to bite or insure someone.
F. TENANT'S LIABILITY:
Tenant will protect, defend, indemnify, and hold Landlord, Landlord’s Property manager, and Landlord’s agents harmless from any damages, costs, attorney’s fees, and expenses that are caused by the act of any pet or Tenant.
Tenant is encouraged to obtain a Pet Liability Policy that can be added as a rider to most renter insurance policies.
