Pet owners represent a large part of our market, especially for homes with 2 bedrooms or more.
Many of our owners have expressed concern about renting to families with pets as they don’t want pets to damage their homes.
Stevens Realty has an answer for this: The Pet Protection Program.
The Pet Protection Program is our promise to you that if we place a pet in your property and they caused damage over and above the tenant’s security deposit amount, we will repair the damage out of our own pocket!
This would be of no charge to you, no deductible… it is absolutely free! We will automatically provide $1,500 of coverage for one pet, $2,000 for two pets, $2,500 for three pets, and you can increase that coverage up to $3,000 for at a low cost.
To fund this protection program, we will retain ALL of the pet fees we collect from the tenants.
This Pet Protection Program is included in ALL of our long-term management agreements. Unfortunately, we cannot guarantee against loss. The coverage stops if you cancel our management agreement. We will pay the difference between any security deposits up to the coverage amount to make sure your home is protected from damage caused by pets.
For example, suppose the tenant has one pet and has a security deposit of $750 when the tenant leaves with pet-related damages in the property costing $1,500. In that case, the security deposit will cover the first $750, and Stevens Realty LLC will pay the remaining $750.
This protection applies to damage from cats and dogs of any breed and all other kinds of paying pets; It does not apply to service animals.
The program does not cover unapproved pets that the tenant concealed from us. Participation in the Pet Protection Program is of no charge to the owner and is required once you allow pets in your property.
We pay for any pet damage that exceeds the security deposit
