Pet Permits for Investment Property Owners in Langhorne

Langhorne Man with French Bulldog in His LapPresenting pet-friendly rental homes is an efficient strategy that would eventually lead to getting more long-term tenants in Langhorne. Numerous renters would love to own a pet but are frequently deterred by the high number of rental homes that do not allow animals on the property. If you intend to or 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! Think about how helpful it would be for your Langhorne 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. It would also be good 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. Instead of searching for illicit animals or counting 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 also a benefit to tenants, especially if emergency personnel is called to the property. In an emergency, it can be challenging to keep tabs of a pet. If each of your rental homes had a clear decal representing the quantity and type of animals being kept on the property, emergency personnel would be more efficient in clearing the home if needed, as well as raise attention 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.

Obviously, a pet-friendly rental home would need more than a permit and decal. To help inspire 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. While pet registration can easily be an integral 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. Forgetting to do so may expose yourself and others to unnecessary risk and injury.
