PET POLICY


Please note some of our rental properties do not allow pets.  

You must contact APM before you decide to bring a pet home.

APM may allow tenants to have pets in the rental unit.  APM reserves the right to deny a tenant’s ability to have a pet.   The following conditions must be met in order for a tenant to be granted permission to have a pet in their unit:            

 

  • Tenant must sign and agree to the terms of the Pet Addendum to the Lease Agreement.

 

  • An additional $400 per pet is required for a pet deposit.  The return of this deposit will be in accordance with our security deposit policy.

 

  • An additional monthly pet rent charge of $25 per pet will be assessed based on the number of pets in the unit for all new pet leases.

 

  • A maximum of two pets, cats and dogs only, are allowed in each rental unit. Total weight limit not to exceed 85 pounds.  All other pets are prohibited (i.e. lizards, snakes, ferrets, birds, hamsters, guinea pigs, etc).

 

  • A picture of each pet must be provided to APM.

 

  • Pet owner is responsible for any damage created by the pet, either in the apartment or any other areas of the building or grounds.

 

  • Pet owner will be held financially responsible for the cost of ridding the rental unit and common area of fleas if determined that his/her pet is the cause of the problem.

 

  • Pets must be kept on a leash or in a carrier when outside the rental unit.

 

  • Pets are not to be left unattended while outside the rental unit or on the patio.

 

  • Pet houses are not permitted on patios or balconies.

 

  • Pet owners are responsible for disposing of their pet’s waste immediately and properly.  Before disposing of soiled cat litter, it must be placed in a plastic bag and securely tied.  If APM personnel have to pick up after a tenant’s pet, the tenant will be charged for their time at $75 per hour, with a minimum charge of one hour.

 

  • Pet owners are responsible for restoring any damaged areas in the yard (i.e. dead grass areas from pet waste, holes dug by dogs).

 

  • All tenants are encouraged to report if they see violations of these pet rules.  Unauthorized pets are a violation of the lease and may result in a notice to vacate the unit.
