Preparing to lease your property

Should I allow pets?

Gordon James Realty defers to the owner of the property for their preference when setting a pet policy. Most of our owners do accept pets. However, we understand if an owner prefers not to allow pets, and will enforce a no-pet policy when desired.

About 75 percent of renters nationwide own pets, so allowing pets can increase the pool of potential tenants and may decrease turnover. To ensure a tenant’s pets are well behaved and cared for, we ask prior landlords. We charge a $250 pet deposit to help defray any pet-related expenses and outline additional requirements in the lease, including having the carpets and property professionally cleaned when vacating. Tenants living in condos with pet rules must abide by all restrictions, according to their lease.

We hope this covers it, but we may have missed something. If you still have questions, drop us a note:
