It appears like my additional dog situation is still going on -- It is a black lab puppy about 3 months old - so now there are 3 dogs not 2. When the tenant 1st moved in there were the 2 small dogs - so charge SD as normal plus 1/2 the SD for any dog damage (soiled carpet, chewed, etc.) When I came over a month ago I did notice definate dog odor - now realize it was probably because of the puppy - not visible at the time I came over.
I hate to address this too strongly in the middle of winter as I don't want an empty house. Maybe I'm just "venting" don't know whether to add a pet rent charge or just raise the went $25.00 the first of the year since it's been years since I raised it.
I charge $50.00 PER MONTH, EACH pet EACH MONTH for 1 small adult dog. 2 small adult pets is $100.00 extra each month as pet rent. T signs off that they are responsible for EACH AND ANY dog cleaning or damages UPON DISCOVERY. Municipal Codes here only allow 2 pets PERIOD! Any pet lease violation as to pets is $100.00 each occurrence, at the time of discovery. You need to get in there with a black light and find all PP etc. damages/filth, and have them sign off on such an AMMENDMENT. 2 PET LIMIT. NO KENNEL or PUPPY MILL ALLOWED. That is a big dog! It seems they have no respect for you or your rules because you do not enforce anything and fear them.
