Service Animals are not considered “pets” under Federal law and therefore any of our pet policies and fees do not apply to a qualified service animal.
Owners of the homes we manage allow pets on a case by case basis according to their personal preferences. Our Pet policy is designed to allow responsible pet owners to rent our properties and allow our owners to have faith that their tenants are dedicated to the upkeep of the premises, the pet and the legal processes surrounding pet ownership.
