Pets – Are tenants allowed to have pets in my rental property?

Pets – Are tenants allowed to have pets in my rental property?

The bottom line is you get to decide about pets.  There is a strong business argument to be made for allowing animals in your rental home.  Tampa Bay is a very pet-friendly area.  To many people, pets are often considered members of the family.  As landlords, we would prefer to not accept pets but also recognize disallowing dogs and cats can significantly increase vacancy times (this is especially true in single-family homes).  As the owner, you choose whether or not pets are welcome in your rental home.  Read more about our pet policy restrictions and recommendations [coming soon].
