Renting with pets

Finding a home for you and your pet(s) can be challenging, so we’ve compiled a few ideas to make it easier to look for pet-friendly housing for you and your furry friend(s).

Be a good pet-owning renter

  • Give yourself enough time to find the right pet-friendly rental (see list below)
  • Offer to pay a higher security deposit and reassure the landlord by offering a formal pet resume (samples here and here)
  • Show that you are a responsible pet owner: provide a letter of reference from your current landlord or a letter from your veterinarian
  • Get it in writing that your landlord agreed to allow you to keep a pet in your new apartment
  • Do not try to sneak your pet into your new apartment; this could result in breaking your rental agreement and losing the apartment or being forced to give up your pet(s)
