Information for Your Furry Family Members
We know that your pets are members of your family, too.
If you have a pet, please make sure you have chosen a home or apartment that will allow a pet and that your pet is of a qualified breed and size. An additional pet security deposit, non-refundable fee, and pet rent (typically per pet) may be due. Typically, two pets of up to 35 lbs. full-grown are allowed.
We use an independent, third-party pet screening vendor (PetScreening.com) for all prospective residents. To ensure all residents understand our pet and animal-related policies, we require a third-party screening and review process regardless of having a pet or animal. This process ensures we have formalized pet and animal-related policy acknowledgments and accurate pet and animal records.
Please note that 55+/62+ apartment communities do not participate in PetScreening. Please see the property's onsite manager for pet policy details.
The pet screening profile cost is the responsibility of the household pet owner. This is a separate charge from the rental application fee. It is as low as $20 for the first pet application and $15 for each additional pet application. There is no charge for an assistance animal accommodation request and no charge for a “No Pet or Animal” profile. There is a renewal fee of $10 per year for all household pets.
Each household pet owner receives a Pet Management License to use their Pet Profile in their everyday life. For example, Pet Profiles can be shared with a pet groomer, pet walker, pet day-care, another landlord, etc., and are valid for one year.
Washington law allows a two-year exemption for breed-restricted dogs if they attend an AKC Canine Good Citizen program (or reasonable equivalent) and pass the 10-step test. The owner is still responsible for all deposits, fees, pet rent, etc.
