Owner FAQ

Do you charge the resident a security deposit? What about a pet fee?

Yes. Our policy is that the security deposit is typically one month's rent. Pets are not allowed without your permission. When pets are allowed, an additional non refundable pet fee of $250 is required for each cat, dog or other animal.  The pet fee(s) is for permission to have pet(s) on premises. Any damage caused will be deducted from security deposits being held.

Renter's insurance MUST include and NOT exclude each particular pet.
