Re: Pets by Garry (Iowa) on March 5, 2018 @14:33

As a first time LL, please treat this as a learning experience, just as you would if you had to pay for books, tapes, or college classes. I agree with the anon. If you want things to change, wait till the end of the lease, and either up the rent by xxxx to compensate for any future damage the pets may do, or just terminate the lease, and ask them to move. It's your choice, because it's your property. In the future, stick to your guns if you don't want to allow pets. BUT------as you found out, you limit the number of choices you have for future tenants, because roughly 50% of all the tenants out there, either have, or want a pet. And, yes, you can ask for a larger deposit, or more rent, if a T has a pet. However, you should limit a T to 2 pets only. If they have more, turn them away, no matter how good they look on their application.
