Pet Approval Policy

Pet Approval Policy Rent Smart Property Management

Rent Smart Property Management is pleased to work with any qualified applicant that has a mature, well behaved, non-aggressive breed dog. Most of our properties are pet-friendly to some degree or another. The property owner determines the restrictions for a pet to be considered. Some smaller properties are suitable for residents with a cat, while other properties may not allow cats due to allergy issues of the property owner.

If your pet is over two years old, and of non-aggressive breed, chances are, we may have a property that might work for you!

Sadly, we are unable to rent to breeds that are commonly labeled as "aggressive" by the insurance companies. We cannot rent to mixes of these breeds. Pets under two years of age will not be considered. Non-qualifying pets may result in denial of the rental application.

At Rent Smart Property Management, we require every animal to go through our professional screening process. The fee for this is $20.00 for the first pet profile and $15.00 for each additional pet in your profile. These application fees are paid directly to our 3rd party vendor conducting the pet screening. This screening is part of our application process and any application received that lists a pet(s) must complete the pet application in order to move forward with the rental application. There is no charge for emotional support animals or service animals.

The benefits of registering your pet with a pet screening service are huge. You create an online profile for your pet which allows you to consolidate the paperwork required to manage your pet's complicated life all in one place.

Profile information includes photos, vaccinations, microchip, training, behavioral traits as well as a special section for service/companion animals. You’ll love easily sharing this information with all of the service providers in your pets lives. Pet sitters, doggie daycares, groomers, veterinarians, and animal hospitals.

Major insurance companies consider the following list of breeds as aggressive. While we understand that your pet may be sweet and gentle, neither Rent Smart Property Management nor our clients are willing or able to take a risk renting to an animal that is considered a statistical liability.

The overall strength of your qualifications weighs heavily on the consideration to approve your pet, as does the age, weight, and breed of the pet. All approved pets are subject to a one-time pet acceptance fee of $125.00, per pet. Monthly pet fee is a minimum of $50.00 per pet, with a two pet maximum at most properties. Pet deposit minimum of $500.00 per pet.

We always accept emotional support and service animals with proper documentation. ESAs and service animals are not subject to any fees or deposits.
