Pet restrictions usually include the number of pets an occupant is allowed to have, their pet’s weight, and sometimes their breed. Finding a pet-friendly rental in Wellington that will accept more than one pet or a large dog can be challenging. Condo communities, like Sheffield Woods, will only allow one pet under 20 pounds. While other communities, like Olympia, will typically allow two domestic pets, no weight restriction. However, every community in Wellington is pet-friendly they’ll just have restrictions.

Tips for Successfully Renting a Home with Pets

Pet Resume
When submitting an offer on a home for rent make sure to include a pet resume. A pet resume should be a positive, but realistic, introduction to your pet. It should include their breed, weight, age, temperament, and name. You’ll also want to include their health records and any training certificates they’ve received. Describe your daily routine with your pet. Do you work from home or is your pet alone all day? Where does your pet go when you’re not home, are they free-range, crated, or sectioned off to a specific area? And don’t forget to attach photographs of your furry family member.

Meet & Greet
Nobody is going to tell a potential landlord that their pet chews on baseboards, scratches at screens, or pees in the house. Instead, they’ll say they have the best pet ever.

Well if that truly is the case, prove it! Offer to introduce your pet to the landlord. Allow them to visit you and your pet at your current residence so they can see firsthand how well-behaved your pet is.

Pet Deposit
A majority of landlords prefer not to have pets, so don’t give them a reason not to accept yours. If they require a non-refundable $350 pet deposit, agree to pay it. Even landlords who have pets themselves are often reluctant to rent to someone who has a pet. So playing hardball and trying to negotiate may make it easier for the landlord to reject your offer.

Renters Insurance
Some landlords are more concerned about the liability of having a pet residing in their property than they are the pet destroying it. To put the prospective landlord’s mind at ease agree to obtain renter’s insurance. The standard renter’s insurance policy will include liability, which will cover any claim arising from your pet.

Final Thoughts

Finding a pet-friendly rental in Wellington Florida can be challenging, but it’s not impossible. To avoid getting scammed and wasting time looking at properties that won’t accept your pet hire a Wellington rental agent. As agents, we know community pet restrictions and can easily view the landlord’s restrictions too.

You can certainly look for a pet-friendly rental online just keep in mind real estate websites have general search options. So you’ll only have the option to select “yes, no, or restricted” under pets. While other websites simply have “cats ok” or “dogs ok.” However, rental agents are able to do a detailed search for the number of pets and weight restrictions. We also have access to broker remarks, which are not displayed anywhere online and provide additional information.

Popular Rental Questions
Where can I find a pet-friendly house for rent in Wellington, FL? A lot of landlords understand that most tenants will have some type of pet, so a majority of them will accept a pet(s). However, the type of pet a landlord is willing to accept along with the number, weight, and breed will vary. If the property belongs to a homeowners association or condo association they will most likely have pet restrictions/ requirements as well that both the landlord and tenant need to abide by. So finding a pet-friendly house in Wellington is rather easy but finding one that accepts your pet(s) may not be.

Are there any additional fees associated with renting a pet-friendly apartment in Wellington? Yes, most Wellington apartment complexes or private landlords will require a refundable or non-fundable pet deposit. Some will even charge monthly pet rent, the average is $35-$75 per pet. In addition, a landlord may require the tenant to carry renters insurance if they have a pet. Plus, most apartment complexes and landlords will need all and any vet records for each pet.

How long will a landlord hold a property? The length of time a landlord is willing to hold a property for a tenant will depend on several factors. Two of the main factors are how qualified the tenant is and when the rental is available for move-in.

If the property is available for immediate occupancy it is unlikely a Wellington landlord will “hold” a property for 90 days. In my experience, a landlord will hold a property for 1-4 weeks max. With that being said a tenant certainly doesn’t have to move into the property for 90 days, but they will most likely need to start paying rent within 30 days.

Is there an application process to rent a home in Wellington?  Yes, there is typically an application process to rent a home in Wellington. When you find a rental property you are interested in, you will need to complete a rental application, which is usually provided by the landlord or property management company. If the property is located in an HOA they too may have an application process that all prospective tenants need to go through.

The application typically requires personal information such as your name, contact details, employment history, income verification, and references. Landlords may also require a background check and credit check to assess your rental history and financial reliability. Additionally, you may need to provide proof of identification, such as a driver’s license or passport.

The landlord will review your application and make a decision. If approved, you will sign a lease, and if there is an HOA you will then submit the HOA application for final approval.
