“We never had a dog that smoked in bed and set fire to the house. We never had a cat
that played music too loudly. We never had a hamster get drunk and knock
holes in the walls. So if your pet can vouch for you, then you're welcome too."

 

 

PET POLICY

 

Most (not all) of our properties accept pets on a case-by-case basis. We reserve the right to change or alter our policy and requirements at any time without notice. We also reserve the right to discontinue accepting pets at any time without notice.

 

 

PET APPLICATION PROCESS

 

A Pet Application is required along with a face-to-face meeting with your prospective pet. Upon the face-to-face visit, your prospective pet’s application will be processed. If accepted, a TAA Pet Addendum must be completed. All pets or intentions of acquiring a pet MUST be disclosed on your rental application if you are applying for tenancy.

UNAUTHORIZED ANIMALS


We do not accept exotic animals, fish, reptiles or aggressive breeds and species. Your pet must be pre-approved by us before your rental application can be approved. If you are an existing tenant your Pet Application must be approved and Pet Addendum executed BEFORE bringing the animal onto the property. Failure to do so will result in unauthorized animal charges as outlined on page one of the Lease Contract - even if the animal is approved.

ADA SERVICE & EMOTIONAL SUPPORT ANIMALS

We follow all federal and state laws with regard to ADA service animals and therapist prescribed emotional support animals. There is a difference between the two.

 

The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) states that disabled persons may live in accommodation with their service animals, even where pets are not usually allowed. This is because service animals are extremely well behaved due to their extensive training and certification, and are not considered as pets. Whereas, emotional support animals are prescribed to individuals as a therapeutic treatment for their psychological disorders and do not undergo any training or certification. Some landlords will allow them to live with their owners despite a ‘no pet’ policy, but they are not always obliged to.

Animals have long been used to medically assist humans with various needs, such as a service dog to aid a blind or visually impaired person with navigation and protection, or an emotional support animal to provide affection and companionship as part of a treatment plan for anxiety issues. These animals both provide a similar service, but are not regarded equally in the eyes of the law.

Service animals are trained specifically to assist with an individual’s disability and are recognized by the ADA. Emotional support animals, however, are not ADA approved animals and therefore are not exempt from certain restrictions such as access to public places or private establishments in the same way that service animals are.

When can rental housing not allow an emotional support animal? There are certain circumstances where landlords are not obliged to accept Emotional Support Animals, such as:

  • Buildings that have four or fewer dwellings of which the landlord is the occupant of one

  • Single family accommodation rented or sold without a real estate broker

RENTAL HOUSING CONCERNS REGARDING PETS

While you may be the perfect "mother or father" to your four-legged child, property owners and managers have legitimate concerns about pets which has caused most rental housing in Fort Worth to have blanket policies prohibiting pets. Almost every landlord has a horror story about property damage or the terrorizing of other tenants. Our policies may sound strict but they are in place to protect you, your pet, your neighbors and the property. We are willing to work with you on a case-by-case basis. We encourage you to provide us with as much information regarding your pet as possible to help us make an informed decision. 

 

 

IMPORTANT INFORMATION FOR ROOMMATES & LEASE GUARANTORS


All residents sharing a lease should read and agree to the terms of the Pet Addendum before signing. Each roommate is jointly and severally liable for damages and all other obligations (including fiduciary) set forth in the Animal Addendum and Lease Contract, even if they do not own the animal. By signing the Pet Application and Pet Addendum each resident agrees to accept full responsibility for all costs associated with and damages resulting from the animal. All residents must sign the pet addendum. A resident may not "opt out." In addition, all guarantors to the lease are also liable for the pet. You all should think about it carefully as a pet is a big responsibility which most students find difficult to maintain between school, work, travel and social life.
