Guidelines for Pet Policies

A good property management company like Fred Leeds will help you determine whether it’s in your best interest to ban or allow pets on your premises. The ultimate decision will most likely be based on a cost benefits analysis and assessment of the liability potential you will be subject to as a property owner. Below are some issues to consider and further explore with your South Bay property management company.

The staff at Fred Leeds Property Management has found that it’s best to require an additional deposit for your tenants’ pets to cover any animal-related damages or expenditures associated with the pet. The standard amount is typically between $100 and $350. This will ensure that any carpet damage and other problems will be taken care of when the tenant vacates.

Another standard item that we recommend at Fred Leeds Properties is to include an addendum to the lease that states that the permission to keep pets can be revoked at any time, completely at the landlord’s discretion. This will come in handy in the case of a problematic pet that causes issues with other tenants.

The team at Fred Leeds Property Management strives to set clear expectations and policies in regards to pets from the moment we start working with a landlord. We help our clients determine guidelines for pets, from handling complaints about pets and setting a maximum number per unit to overall expectations from both parties. Our staff helps our clients set rules in regards to important issues such as noise levels, cleanliness and usage of common areas.

A great South Bay property management company will also make sure to properly screen clients and seek referrals through previous landlords and other references to ensure that the potential tenant has not had any pet-related issues in the past.
