As a general rule, pets will not be allowed in multi-family dwellings. If the property allows a pet, the applicant will pay an additional pet deposit and or a non refundable pet fee. Some properties that allow pets require additional pet fees per month, and those fees will be due with each months rent payment.
Pets must be spayed or neutered, and all pets must be properly vaccinated. The pet owner must keep the animal from causing damage or disruption and cared for in a safe and healthy manner. Service animals as described in the Americans with Disabilities Act are exempt from these fees but must still be cared for as listed above.
