This is What Will Happen if You Sneak a Dog in a Rental Property


#1 – Fines

Sooner or later, you will be exposed and your landlord will find out about your hidden furry four-legged friend. In fact, your landlord has the right to fine you for that. Fines can be done in two possible ways, either the property owner charges you per day, which means every single day your pet lives in the house must be paid, or charge you with a set amount.

In both cases, those fines must be covered in your lease with all the details concerning the pet-related charges. If your landlord asks for more than it is mentioned in the lease, you have the right to file a case in civil court. This will help you recoup all the cost you have spent but definitely will not give you the right to keep the pet.
