Renting with Pets — #phillipsre

Renting-with-Pets_2If you are looking for a new rental unit for yourself and your pet, this article from the Seattle Times has some great ideas on how to convince your landlord that both you and your pet will be good tenants. It is important to focus on the positive: your good credit and solid employment history is the first place to start, but make sure to have references for your pet, possibly some veterinarian history on your pet to show that it is in good health and don’t be surprised if you may have to pay a little extra. Some landlords will charge a pet rent (which can be a few extra dollars a month) or possibly an extra deposit, that may be returned when you move out and the property is left in the same condition as when you moved in. If you are moving in with a roommate, this article may also be helpful to make sure their concerns are met. It is important in each scenario that all the information is provided up front, being honest is always the best choice and will most likely bring the best results for everyone involved.
