WHY YOU SHOULD NOT HIDE ANIMALS FROM YOUR PROPERTY MANAGER

The purpose of a no-pet policy can be different: other tenants can have an allergy, the landlord’s property insurance doesn’t cover pets, or the landlord just simply is not willing to handle possible wear and tear issues that can appear from your pets. So, even if you believe that your pet is not going to pose any issues and you attempt to hide it, you would be breaking a no-pet policy agreement or even avoiding an animal fee, which could result in either a fine, or even eviction.

  • You can be evicted

You will be fined, moved out from the property, and get a blemish on your tenancy record. Also, if your pet was to wound another tenant of the community, he/she can sue the landlord, which in turn will sue you.

  • Not every neighbor is loyal to you

Your neighbors can be friends of the property owner or can be asked by the owner to watch you. In this case, they will not sway to report any information to the landlord. It is better for you to follow the rules.

  • Wear and tear issues

Not paying a pet fee or hiding an animal does not always mean that you will save money. Even if your pet was trained not to scratch doors, walls, and curtains, nor urinate on the carpet and furniture, it can still harm the surroundings. Long story short, it can lead to more than just pet fees.

  • Pets are not good at keeping secrets

If your dog is not trained to not bark or howl or your cat being loud (they have vocal skills too), the information about them can be quickly leaked to your property manager.

  • Your pets should be sometimes outside anyway

Dogs need to be walked every day. Otherwise, it will cause more damage to the house. Plus, it is simply not fair to keep your pet constantly inside. They need fresh air and sun too.

So, keeping all these points in mind, it becomes pretty clear: it is not worth the risk to keep your pet a secret from your property manager.
