That's great Danielle is moving in! I assume the dog gets to move in as well?

Yeah, I'm going to go ahead and pay the pet deposit. It has inflated to $1,500 since I last had talked to the landlady about it. But at least I get the money back eventually.

Yeah, it sure is. She says that's how much it costs to replace all the carpet in each unit. I guess some animals are capable of that, so it seems justifiable.

Re: ::Ruff Ruff::

Wellll... when you rent an apartment they usually ask for a damage deposit, which is normally equal to one month's rent (sometimes less if they are desperate to rent the place). So, y'know, after you move out they go around and check everything out, and if they need to make repairs they deduct the costs from the deposit and refund the rest. Most places charge you an additional deposit if you have a pet because animals are really good at destroying things. Pazzo is a very well-behaved dog, so I expect I'll get the entire deposit back once we move again.

Plus if you get evicted or your break your lease they keep all your deposits regardless of the damage situation.

Re: ::Ruff Ruff::

That's cool that you're gonna get it all back. I've saw a place last year that had a $750 pet fee--$250 you could get back if there's no damage (e.g. to curtains, walls, etc.), $500 for the carpet you only got back if you were there over 2 years (the "life" of the carpet)--'cause they had to replace the carpet regardless of if there's damage because the new tenants may be allergic.
