Pet Permits for Investment Property Owners in Cedar Park

Cedar Park Man with French Bulldog in His LapHaving pet-friendly rental homes is one great strategy that would definitely attract more long-term tenants in Cedar Park. Numerous renters would love to own a pet but are oftentimes deterred by the high number of rental homes that do not allow animals on the property. If you have intentions of letting or you already allow pets on your rental property, have you ever considered using a registration process and decal for tenant pets? While many investment property owners do not include this process in their lease documents, there are many advantages to doing so.

The benefits of using a visible marker on each rental home where pets are present are far-reaching – and not just for you! Imagine how helpful it would be for your Cedar Park property manager and maintenance contractors to easily see, via a decal on a front door or window, whether or not pets are permitted on the property. Not only that but if they also had access to a pet permit number which they could then match up with the pets currently being kept on the property. Rather than searching for illicit animals or waiting on what the tenant says, professionals needing access to the property would immediately know what to expect inside and, if conditions are not as expected, to take appropriate action.

Necessitating pet registration and a decal is an added benefit as well to tenants, particularly in cases when emergency personnel is called to the property. In an emergency, it can be quite difficult to keep track of a pet. In the event that each of your rental homes had a clear decal representing the number and type of animals being kept on the property, emergency personnel would be more efficient in clearing the home, in case the need arises, at the same time raise awareness about the potential for pets to run away or even injure someone. With a permit number for each pet, tenants can also more simply track down and identify their pets in the event that they should go missing.

Without a doubt, a pet-friendly rental home necessitates more than a permit and decal. To help encourage your tenants to be responsible for their pets and to minimize any potential risks that come with having animals on the property, you should also include a detailed pet agreement in your lease documents. Although pet registration can easily be an essential part of your lease agreement, you will want to verify that you have spelled out what types and sizes of pets are permitted and that you have documentation that the animals are properly licensed and vaccinated. Neglecting to do so may expose yourself and others to unnecessary risk and injury.
