Pets are allowed at many of our properties. Pets should have an excellent rental reference from a previous landlord. Large dogs and certain breeds of dogs, including but not limited to Rottweiler, Doberman, Akita, German Shepherd, Pit Bull, Chow, and any mix of the above, and some reptiles are not allowed in our homes. A non-refundable deposit and a monthly fee is required. The home must be treated for fleas and professionally deodorized upon termination. All waste must be cleaned up from the lawn at all times. Litter boxes should be cleaned and sanitized on a regular basis. Carpets and floors must be free of waste at all times. All indoor animals must be house trained. When no one is home, all dogs must be secured in a crate or kennel. The City of Bloomington requires all pets to be on a leash when outdoors.
Tenants are not allowed to paint the walls, trim or woodwork or place wallpaper on the walls. A limited number of small picture nails are permitted. All units are painted with a particular brand and color of paint. This allows ease of touch up painting between tenants, and minimizes the costs to tenants.
Most of our units have off-street parking available. Parking is not allowed on the lawns or sidewalks. Some neighborhoods do require permit parking on the streets.
