Pet Policy Information

Pet Policy Information

Note: Each property has its own pet policy. Though most Bitchin’ Properties do allow a pet, please see the property listing to determine if the home you’re interested in allows pets.

  • All pets must be properly licensed, have shots required by statute, and be spayed or neutered. Please be prepared to show documentation.
  • Breeds with a disposition for aggressive behavior are prohibited.
  • Most properties have restrictions on the number of pets and/or the size of the pet. Please check with the property listing for specific details.
  • Be prepared to provide a picture of your pet and vaccination records.
  • Only the tenants pets are allowed in and around the property.
  • You, the tenant agree to keep your pets under control at all times, so that they don’t disturb other homeowners, tenants and their guests.
  • You are required to clean up after your pets, both inside the home, and in all common areas and other parts of the community and your property.
  • You agree not to leave pets outdoors or unsupervised in the home for an unreasonable period of time, and to keep pets in appropriate, contained areas within home and yards. For example, small reptiles such as lizards should be kept in terrariums and birds should be kept in cages.
  • Pets must be leashed when visiting other community areas outside your home.
  • Barking that causes annoyance and or complaints from other homeowners will not be tolerated.
  • A security deposit and pet rent will be charged for each pet. The amount of the deposit will vary depending on the nature and size of the pet.

Currently, Bitchin’ Properties LLC does not require additional deposit for certain caged animals.

Because of increasingly restrictive insurance policies for landlords, Bitchin’ Properties LLC reserves the right to decline an application because of the presence of pets, unless those pets are protected by law. 

The additional security deposit and pet rent required for pets is due when you sign the lease agreement. Please note that this additional deposit is not a pet fee.

Because of the potential damages caused by pets, all animals must be approved by the landlord and we require an additional security deposit for each pet. Listed below are amounts for most situations with typical pets:

  • Cats – $300 additional deposit per cat. All cats must be spayed or neutered.
  • Dogs – $300 additional deposit per dog. All dogs must be spayed or neutered.

We do not accept dogs under two years of age. Landlord may determine an additional deposit is required for larger dogs. Some properties require an additional monthly pet rent for dogs. Some breeds of dogs may not be allowed.

Potentially restricted breeds may require the tenant purchase liability insurance.
