Should you allow pets in your rental properties? Let’s take a minute and talk about what can happen if you do because you need rules and policies in place. Allowing pets in your rental properties opens up your pool of renters but also increases your headaches!
Early one bright and sunny Tuesday morning, one of your tenants calls into the office with a maintenance issue. The kitchen faucet is leaking, could you send someone out right away to fix it.
The tenant won’t be home and Fluffy, his small dog, (which is on the lease) will be locked in a crate in the bedroom, so just come on in.You happen to have a maintenance person in the area who has time to run by to take a look at the problem.

BIG AGGRESSIVE DOG
The next thing you know, your maintenance person calls you. He angry because a large dog came out of nowhere, chased him out of the house and almost bit him!
